I just own the pda phone HTC P3600i with Windows Mobile 6. Today during installation of Kaspersky for Mobile the installation takes quite long time and the result installation was unsuccessful. After digging I notice the installation slow is because of my tools name "Pictures & Videos".

Then I notice is the same folder where the installer of Kaspersky, there is a unknown file with name ( like temporary ) "¥#´&Sex". I try to delete the file but failed because it say file is undeleted.

Then I soft reboot the pda phone, and the file is disappear. After that I continue with the Kaspersky antivirus for mobile and it went successful. I made a full system scan and the result was clean.

FYI, I confident never install anything warez into my pda phone and never do bluetooth file sharing with other unclean media. my pda phone is only 3 days old. the seller is authorized seller where they install additional tools like gps software and office.

Question:

Is it my pda phone clean from virus? i just worried because the temporary file created as i mention above has a word Sex. Thank you

Perhaps you dont need the antivirus. It sound like it was the antivirus that brought in the virus. If you dont download warez then why you need antivirus?

the antivirus installer that i download is from kapersky itself. and before i copy it to the pda phone,  i can first with my clean laptop with all antivirus updated.

i suspect during some error in other application and the same time i install the kaspersky and it hang until show unsuccessful installation, and during that failure of installation it creates rubish file which never exist before in that path. after reboot the file disappear.

How can malware reach your mobile?

Via Bluetooth connections
In MMS messages
When downloading a program to the smartphone from an unreliable source

You dont have to worry about any of these if youjust open things from known senders.

I have been using this OS since 2002 with BT and all the features and have never seen a Virus.

so i will consider the unknown file created is a temporary failed file which accidently has a sex character name in it random file name
