    Default Malware

    I recently ran AVG antivirus, and it came back with a threat under apps classified as malware, and it was titled "HTC account." There is an option to uninstall the app, but that does not work. Is this really a problem? I ran two other antivirus programs (lookout and malwarebytes) and no problems were found. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

    That shouldn't be a problem.

    Mobile security vendors. Leave it and burn the AVG out of your storage.

    Not like Android provides the tools for an actual security app anyways.
