    Hello,
    I have just recieved my new android phone, however on boot i get adverts coming up.
    I installed AVG and Lookout and 2 malware detections have been found

    One called: KKBrowser
    One called: Processor

    There is also a DCShare which i am suspicious of

    Also Lookout found a 'root enabler'? What is this?

    When i try and uninstall these i am unable to because they have been pre installed by vendor?

    When i look at what these apps are capable of it is:
    read phone status and identity,
    approximate location,
    read your web bookmarks and history
    modify or delete the contents of USB storage
    disable your lock screen
    download files without full network access
    close other apps
    run at startup
    draw over apps
    control vibration


    Why would any pre installed app need any of that? I have disabled them but please tell me if this is safe and what you would do?

    Any help is appreciated,
    Thanks,

    Scott
