    Hi all. Everytime I plug my Desire into either of my PCs, I get a warning from Norton 360 saying that it (the Desire) is infected with a virus called VBS.Runauto. Having checked the details of this supposed virus, it appears to be in the Google folder. Has anyone else had this problem, and is there a way to "ignore" it or safely remove it without causing problems?
    Thanks.

    Also, try having it scanned as an external drive.

    While android itself can't be affected by a virus, it can be a carrier just like any external HDD or flash stick.
