    Hi All

    New to Andriod and smart phones...............so perhaps a stupid question?

    Do I need to get some sort of Anti-virus & Spyware protection for my Desire?

    Thanks in advance for your advice.

    There are some apps available, but personally I don't see a need for them. As all applications run sandboxed in android, nothing can gain access to your functions without you choosing to allow them.
