    So I looked at a video on youtube, and part of the way into the video, the image of a guys face obscured the character in the video, and a weird song started playing (I can't remember the song). If you're the anti-hacker/hacker type, it's the 6th entry if you google "austin powers 4".

    Anyway, shut off the phone asap and ripped (exaggerating) the battery out. Since then, my weather app will sometimes list Duga Resa instead of my location. and once, when I tried to open any app, the bar kept scrolling uncontrollably. "Clear data" in manage applications fixed the scrolling thing, but how do i locate and remove the virus?

    I have I have antivirus free v 2.4.6, but it doesn't find anything. HTC incredible w/ verizon

    I really doubt you got a virus from there. If it was loaded in youtube it would have most likely be a windows virus..and you cannot get a pc virus in an android.
