So i was just wondering if cells can get viruses.

My computer was going weird yesterday...although windows defender actually found and removed THREE TROJAN DOWLOADERS ....I'm still scared to connect my phone to my PC in case a Trojan is still lurking in backup files or something and gets transferred to my phone and stuffs up my phone... I have a Sony Ericsson W595...

Someone HELP ME!!!!!

Edit: while i was making this topic, another trojan was detected...and about 2 seconds ago a window automatically opened up...something like http://caged-inside.net/default.pk?......... Im soooo sick of this.....

Yes, it is possible that the virus will transfer in your phone. ._.

Stop looking at porn and you should stop getting the viruses. jks

btw

Kaspersky is supposed to be really good, if not, the best. I got the trial version not so long ago and it cleaned my computer pretty well.

yes but it's much harder to write those viruses and send them out on such devices than a PC virus but it is possible.

Yeah Kaspersky is the best out there, but it is very expensive and is intended for commercial use.

Personally I use AVG, free and does a very good job. Just don't download random stuff and you'll be safe.

Yes of course... anything w/ programming can get a virus installed, or hacked

Considering phones now have internet access, its no different from a computer.

I hope the people above were able to help you out, since I have to lock this thread.

Just PM AHTL. He's a freaking computer wiz.

Anyway, no personal threads allowed.
