Google "things you can do with Cydia" and realize just how much cool stuff Apple's ecosystem doesn't have due to the lowest common denominator pandering they do. I searched the Internet (on a different computer) to seek a "FREE" download for virus protection and ended up choosing Panda Cloud Antivirus Free Edition 1. Common sense, dude.

Install antivirus and antispyware software and keep it updated. So unless u have a backup, you can't relplace those system restore settings. Just remember to change the file name when you download it to your desktop, otherwise the virus will recognize it and prevent you from opening the file.

A pop-up window in safemode however said something about restore, and then a light bulb turned on in my head.

With a firewall it is the safest you can have on a cellphone.. I am installing spyware programs to perform scans now, but at the very least, I'm not getting bombarded with fake messages, and I am able to install and run all programs I had some trouble on my Galaxy TAB 2 - maybe because of a malware, but someone said that the best I can do is to do a clean install or Check This Out January 21, 2010 BrainySmurf You have to reset the internet settings….one main problem this virus causes is it blocks the internet.
