    After searching through the forums, and seeing that viruses really have yet to attack any Droids, is the Lookout App really needed? Granted, it is nice to have a backup, but every time I get a text message, that app seems to spring to life.

    Also, has anyone else had a problem after charging their phones? This has happened to me twice now. I unhook my phone from my desktop charger, and everything but my wallpaper is gone. I can access all the apps and phone from my "arrow" menu.

    A restart fixes this, but is there a known cause?

    Thanks!!

    Is lookout an antivirus program? If so then DELETE it immediately. They do nothing but hog performance and cause issues. You are probably hurting yourself more than helping yourself with an antivirus.

    lookout is not needed, not sure if the wallpaper disappearing issue is being caused by that app but it wont hurt to delete it for a while and then see if the issue disappears.
