    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    Why do you think you have a virus on your phone? What is it doing?

    Last nite it said virus trojans pbs excuse me. Im kind of illiterate on this. Something of un known was trying to download and the ant virus protector wouldn't let it. Another site opened up and said push start button that virus was in my hard drive folders i don't know. To day it seems okay but i don't trust it.

    If the virus was a trojan, and it sounds like it may well be, it would have infected your phone if you pushed that start button. My guess is that the AV did it's job for you last night.

    If you are really concerned you could do a master reset on the phone. The problem is that would delete anything and everything you've added to the phone since getting it. The phone would effectively be returned to stock. I'm just not sure this is needed...

    Welcome to the Android Forums! Honestly, I didn't know you could get viruses on a phone.
