    Hi all,
    I've recently by mistake pressed on device security in my security settings and now it doesn't stop scanning, even by restarting the device it still shows up in the upper right corner. What can I do to stop it?

    Allow it to complete the scan and turn it off

    It's been scanning for almost 4 days now and it still hasn't finished...I've tried seeing if I can stop it from the application manager but it's missing there.

    My phone is recent so there is no way scans would take that long to finish

    You hadn't mentioned 4 days before, even 4 hours would be way too long. Try cleaning system cache and rebooting

    Do it this way:-
    1.Turn off the smartphone
    2.Press and hold “Volume Up”, “Home” and “Power” at the same time
    3.When the phone powers up and displays “Power”, release all hardware buttons
    4.You should see an Android icon, and the Android System Recovery screen roughly 30 seconds later
    5.From the recovery menu, press “Volume down” to highlight “Wipe cache partition”
    6.Press “Power” to select the highlighted option
    7.Once the cache partition is wiped, “Reboot system now” should be highlighted
    8.Press “Power” to select the option and wait for your phone to reboot

    Still there at reboot. It's the power lookalike button at the top left corner of the phone. Shows up every time I restart. Maybe it's supposed to be there? always?

    It doesn't bother me, it's why it's not going away is why I'm upset.

    How else can I remove it? It's been there for almost a week now and I never shut my phone off.

    Can anyone else offer me good ways to remove this? It's been running for 2 weeks more now and still there after every restart.

    I'm afraid it might be abusing my battery power cause it has been deteriorating ever since it showed up. Just need to know if it's normal to have it always running or if there is actually a problem. Thanks
