Hi,

You don't say what type of phone you have!

If it has an Android OS, download, install and run Malwarebytes for Mobiles. This app will check your phone for malware.

Here is the link.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/detai...

If you don't have Play Store installed on your phone use the method below to install Malwarebytes

Hi, Download the Malwarebytes 2.00.3.9000 apk file from http://apk-dl.com/malwarebytes-anti-malw... to your PC. Copy it to your phone. Remember where you copied it to. Find this setting in your phone and enable it

. Then use the File Manager app in your phone to find the .apk file you copied, choose install option follow prompts. This will install the app on your phone. When installation complete, go back and disable the Unknown Sources setting that you previously enabled. Then run the app. It will be located with your other apps

Hmm. I'm wondering if you have an apple phone. Is it redownloading apps you've already purchased. Even free apps?

By the way, the reason why some viruses are cannot be uninstalled is because they have placed themselves in the system directory and for you to remove them you either need to remove them with an application which has root access or another way. I have my phone rooted as it was the only way to remove some issues I had back in March/April.

I have a similar problem, using any malware software does not detect any problem, I uninstall the 3 applications on my phone 'go security, ace cleaner and superb cleaner' these three application no matter what I do keep re-installing after rebooting my phone.

I have uninstalled them successfully . I had this issue either after uninstalling Go Security or 360 security. I cannot remove them, I have tried removing the directories but something is hidden on my phone and I cannot find the source for it which keeps installing them, my mobile boots up saying optimising app 1 of 3.... then after the three it loads up with the 3 that i removed back on the phone.

It is something that advertisers have probably secretly put on the applications which the software developers cannot trace so the applications end up being placed deep into the phone. But I am not sure of the source
