Hears the link to read up on AVG Antivirus and download...

http://www.avg.com/ww-en/antivirus-for-android

 

The main thing I am confused with is that the app claims some of my contacted are infected and I am wndering if this is a False Positive already because I do not see how my contacts are infected?  Looks like I will be researching the files it identified as infected and see if it another False Positive report to get you to buy the full version.

It appears AVG have both apps listed on the market, the version I downloaded was the free one to test it, I am not going to fork over 10.00 for a app that I am unsure if it does what its suppose to.  I looked over the infoamtion on both and I do not really see why they have 2 versions because one has more security but they are the same price?

Well I loaded the avg antivirus free and uninstalled lookout to test :smileysad:
The scan came up clean. I have to say I do like that it scans the sd card. Lookout never had that option. I have in the past whenever the phone was connected to the computer scanned it with the antivirus loaded on there.
The lost message could use improvements. It only gave me a selection of maybe 10 out of 200+ contacts to choose and even those half were listing their birthday as the phone number. NOT COOL!
Played with the scan settings, specifically for scan the sd card and selecting the folders. The application froze and ended up choosing "wait" a couple of times before force closing.
First impressions overall it's not a bad application, but it has places where improvement is needed.
