    Default Need a little help recovering from a stupid mistake

    Last night I received an email that contained a file named "falling_obama.swf" I downloaded the file and my tablet said something like - these types of files may harm your device- do you wish to continue. Like a dumb *** I said yes. It downloaded and nothing happened... About a minute later my screen turned an unpleasant red tint. I have tried to find the file to delete it and found in in the download folder and deleted it. The problem is still there. If I run astro file manager I can see it listed under recents, shows an app icon however I can't delete it from there with the astro file manager. So, I hope someone could suggest something that might restore my system.
    Thanks in advance, fatcatken

    I would recommend trying out some of the many virus scanning apps for your device. See where that leads first...

    I tried a couple and didn't have any luck. Then I went into the apps manager and started shutting off apps. When I shut off the lux light app the screen went back to its normal beautiful colors. Thanks for your advice. Fatcatken
