    My phone just came up with safe mode in the bottom left hand corner. I'm not sure what if means or what it does to the phone. I did add Dr. Web anti virus light. Could that be the problem? Any help would be appreciated.

    As I know, HTC phones will start in save mode if a combination of two buttons is pressed while the phone is booting.
    Maybe you did this accidentally :)

    It is like the save mode on a Windows PC.

    There is no reason for you to need anti-virus on your phone.

    Google done pretty good job weeding out crap apps in the Market, but should only download apps with multiple positive reviews posted ;) As long as you stay away from the dark dredges of the web, no need for anti-virus app. :p

    Are you sure you hadn't (accidentally) pressed the volume button while the phone was booting and then the phone went to Android's Save Mode this way?

    And after a restart the Save Mode would been vanished :)

    I too faced the same issue. I followed your instruction to reboot the phone and now its back in normal mode.
