Malware from the Android Market
I seem to have picked up malware from the Android Market.
Now periodically (two or three times a day at least) a company called prizes2win takes over my browser and makes a spurious offer of a free iPhone. On further investigation, this appears to be a £2.50 a week subscription to a raffle.
Can anyone help with the following:
1) is this to be expected on the Android Market?
2) how do I identify which application smuggled this malware onto my device?
3) how do I remove this?
4) do I have recourse to any government bodies to make sure that others are not troubled by undesirable, uninvited guests?
I am new to Android, as you may obviously gather.
