    Virus Scan SD Card Question

    got anti virus scanner and it does quick scan and scan 200 items but when i click on full scan which includes internal sd card it scans over 900
    only just got the phone, is that normal and why so many files on sd card?

    thanks

    It's probably scanning all system apps along with your downloaded apps and everything else, I say it's about right. Which antivirus you got?

    There has really never been a documented case if an Android device ever getting one but if you want to be on the safe side, one should be more than enough. I personally use Lookout which works very well, the free version should be good enough. It will scan everything you download on the spot and had a very small footprint. It also has the advantage of been able if remotely locking and wiping your device in case it get lost our stolen.

    The paid version scans everything.

    Just a tip. Don't side load apps and then less chance of virus
