    I tried to download one mp3 file, then after downloading it was fine until after 10 seconds or so, it became corrupted. It also crashed my Music app when I tried to open it there. I tried to download other files like APKs and the results was the same. I started to think that my phone has virus or malware. Anyone can help me out here?
    I am using a STARMOBILE SKY phone with 4.4 KitKat Version

    Welcome to Android Central! Are you downloading these files to Internal Storage or an SD card? What sites are you downloading these files from? If these are music files from a "free" music download site, for music that you would normally have to pay for, then there's a fairly high risk of malware. The same goes for apk files, especially if it's a site that offers "free" apps and games that you normally have to pay for.

    Since malware is a significant concern, delete all of those files you downloaded and run a good antivirus app, like Malwarebytes. But keep in mind that negative scans don't rule out malware.
