I know that a malicious malware / spyware has been installed on my galaxy s 3 phone and I constantly get the message to close apps not in use because they drain my battery. But I do not have anything running. I have about 3-4 apps, others were turned off/updates uninstalled a long time ago. So the questions is not if my phone is infected - I know it is. The question is how to find it and remove.

  • It's not clear how do you know that a malware / spyware has been installed on your phone. I'm afraid no one will be able to help you. Please add necessary details to your question. – Irfan Latif Jan 12 at 2:46

You can try using AVG Antivirus or maybe Malwarebytes' Antimalware which I use a lot and it's really a good app.
