Question about Straight Talk LG Optimus Zip Cell Phone

Open Question

How do I turn on safe mode on my Android LG Zip?

I accidentally downloaded the Mandiant U.S.A Cyber Security Virus onto my Android LG Zip. I didn't recheck the box on my phone for preventing downloads from third party sites. I've found so far that I can remove it in safe mode, but with this particular model, I'm not finding much help online to do that.

Have a virus need to get it out need a free nopay tape of antivirus can u help none is working???


If you can download this scanner from mbam called Malwarebytes: http://www.malwarebytes.org/ Once you run this on the target computer you can do a full scan and get rid of the virus, it catches most nasties.
If the virus stop any antivirus from running, you may have to boot into safe mode and run it from a USB device or burn it and run it from a disk. To boot into safe mode :
Turn the computer on or Restart the computer
Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Boot Options Menu appears.
Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected. And boot into safe mode.
Hope this helps,

My Eee netbook has a virus how do i remove them?


Boot into safe mode (press F8 repeatedly when starting the computer), select safe mode with networking, download, then install an anti-malware software and run it. If you can't download the software on the infected computer, download it onto another computer, then transfer it to the infected computer using a flash drive, but still use safe mode. You'll want to also scan the flash drive before using it on another computer, just to make sure the virus didn't get transfered to the flash drive.

Here are some free anti-malware software:

Download the Sysclean module.

You may have a virus or malware.
It's also possible you have a driver conflict.
For the virus situation this will help. You will need a clean pc to download the files, then boot your problem pc in safe mode to tranfer teh files. Power on, tap F8 key till you get windows boot options. Choose safe mode.

I have a virus and need to fix. 1. How do I


reboot the computer and tap the F8 every second or two to get to safe mode (click here for details).
Not sure what virus you have, but I just had to remove "Security Tools" from a pc. I booted into Safe mode and ran MalwareBytes.
If you don't have virus protection download and install Windows Defender and Avast - both are free.
