    My antivirus program is indicating that the pre-installed app com.android.sharedstoragebackup has a virus. I see a disable button but it is greyed so I can't click. How do I remove the virus?

    That sounds like a system app , if it's greyed out you can't uninstall or delete.

    I'll leave a Link to register so you can communicate here as a guest account you can only post questions but can't reply

    What app is telling you it's a virus? That is a system app - part of the OS.

    Welcome to Android Central! The problem with antivirus apps is that the false positive rate can be fairly high.
