I believe my phone is infected with malware. Every few minutes a internet browser pops up to install software or the Playstore opens to a app page. I installed malwarebytes but it didnt find anything. What can I do to fix this? Thanks

Install trustgo and do a full scan.  Turn on trustgo's secure browsing as well.

LBE Privacy Guard is excellent as well.  Unfortuneately you can't fully realize the potential of LBE unless you root your phone (not for beginners).

Hi thomastxiee,

Kindly check your browser setting in device. there is option "Block pop-up window" select enable it. And hit other options like clear cache, clear history and clear cache data. Also, make "Show Security warnings" select enable so, it will shows the warning of some infected websites.

If your device is automatically installing application then stop "Unknown sources" - Don't allow installation of non-market application from your device settings.

Hope this will helps you.

Thanks & Regards,
Krunal T. Tailor
