I am completely new to this.

But I need to root my HTC Desire 500 to get rid of some virus that my phone caught unfortunately.

I have been googling etc. but I am not sure whether the information and tools there are up 2 date.

Is there ONE link/resource with an actual and updated to-do step by step process to root my phone? Or can someone possibly describe the steps I need to make without breaking my phone or something?

  • Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! While waiting for an answer specific to your device, be welcome to check with our rooting index (where I've just linked your question to) and our rooting tag-wiki. The former also lists some more-or-less generic methods, from which one might apply in your case. Also, please edit your question and include which Android version your device is currently running.

  • Normally a wipe will get rid of any unvanted program (but will wipe all you settings and data).
