    Virus? How do I tell?

    Hi. My LG Esteem keeps randomly shutting off and then being tempermental in turning back on. it also is having connectivity. issues with my Bluetooth headset. I have to turn off my Bluetooth. on my phone then turn it back on again before I can make a call on my headset. My son thinks I may have a virus. How do I tell if that is the case? Also, is there any virus protection out there to prevent harm to my phone?

    Thanks!

    There are a couple of apps you can try, in your case I would recommend getting Norton AVG from the market and let that do a scan.

    I downloaded Norton, and it says I'm clean. So does the Antivirus Free. Any idea what might be causing the connectivity issues or the random turning off?

    Any new apps you have installed? Did you change any settings? Is it running differently than previously, or has it always been like that?

    If you load too many apps at once, sometimes it will make the OS run kinda crappy. also, you may have too many apps loaded.

    what i would suggest is to reload the ROM. Its very easy to do.... once you find it. sometimes they can be hard to find.

    normally you can just copy the zip files to your SD card and go fromt here. However, i can't find it for the esteem. i did find this, but it seems like a pain to get thru. good luck. you'll need it!

    Before we get to reloading the ROM, there are still things to try, and questions to explore. And then before we get to that extreme a factory reset might be more than good enough.

    personally, i find that if im going to reset the phone anyway, i may as well reinstall the rom. But, since the esteem appears that it can't use the normal SD card method to restore back to factory, your right, and a factory reset might be better.
    i think you can access that menu by holding volume + and volume - ... and then hit the power button while you're holding the volume buttons.

    hopefully it will load correctly.

    Yes, which is why I haven't say to do that. did you see the questions I posted?

    Agreed, this is complete overkill at this point. Sure, it might solve the problem, but you don't shoot the cow because the milk went bad hopefully you can get straightened out before having to resort to that (which hopefully you won't have to).

    pbrauer is on the right track. I'd look at new apps first and see if any of them are causing issues you can either freeze or uninstall recent apps and see if that makes a difference. You can see what apps might be system hogging in settings>applications.
