    Hello everyone. My wife gave me her phone this morning and showed me that the phone detected a trojan. That means "can you fix this?" She was using Avast antivirus and it detected the trojan in a few different apps and its solution was to delete delete delete. Problem is, it wants to delete the Google play store, the latest android update and so on. I will post a picture below, let me know what you think. Next Installed Lookout antivirus and it detects nothing. Any ideas? Is her phone a liability now? As far as passwords or banking goes? Should we wipe the phone? Would that totally fix it?
