    Hello everyone, I recently got a S3 from VZW. I updated it, and rooted it successfully. That being said, I only have a few apps on it atm. Randomly I have noticed my Wifi will auto connect (even though the setting is disabled) and I will see my GPS activate at the same time. They both stay activated and WILL NOT shut down when I manually turn them off, I have to wait until the phone is done doing its thing before they will shut themselves back off. Sometimes the phone will even become unresponsive when I try to interfere with whatever its doing. The best guess I have on what could be causing this is my AVAST antivirus program. I think it may have something to do with the lost/stolen phone feature. However, when I go into all of the settings I see nowhere to disable this or anything really mentioning this. Can anyone please shed some light on this issue, am I the only one with this problem?

    my wifi turns itself on randomly but i can switch it off.
    youre rght mate it does sound like youre phone is bein controlled by an anti-theft app.. did you buy it new?
    does it only happen when you reboot? (one of my security apps texts my fiance every time i reboot, thinkin that the sim has been changed)
    you dont have a bunny-boiler ex who knows your passwords do you?
