My Droid has AVG anti-virus software installed, although I am not sure this is the same AVG? In any case the Droid forums advise Droid owners to remove the software "as it is not needed by Linux/Unix systems and just slows down performance". What are the facts? Is the problem in the definition of "virus"?
I checked and I couldn't determine whose product that was. But the question remains, what protection does this AVG forum's product for Android offer? Does it confer real protection when most fourms say ANY av product is not necessary.
