    My son has the Du Speed Booster virus on his tablet. I tried restoring it to factory settings, it does not take the virus off of it. I found two anti virus programs, Malware Bytes and Advest spyware removal, and put them on my microsd card. However, I can't figure out how to open them on the tablet. Any advice on getting this virus off a tablet? It shows as a device administrator, and I cannot find a way of removing it.

    Welcome to the forum

    We need more information. As far as I can tell the DU Speed Booster on the Play Store is not a virus. There is one for Windows that is. Where did this one get downloaded from?

    Welcome to the Forum.. As @leeshor said, Du Speed it a booster and cleaner and not a virus. If tou do not want it on the tablet, go to Setting > Apps and scroll down to the App and uninstal it...

    Just to make sure... this IS an Android tablet, not a Windows tablet, right?
