Ok to get a less effect from dis type of harm you need to get some good antivirus.Remember no antivirus can protect you from all viruses. I have tested probably all antiviruses but i preferred only 4....List of 4 good antiviruses:
Avast:Ok I genuinely use dis one "avast" is one of the most powerful antivirus with regular updates...sometimes may delay but you will get all the features of a pro like gps tracking, antitheft, sms/call filtering, web shield(best feature instead:but if u really wanna get protected from web use Dolphin android web-browser better than avast dis feature), runs while doing work dosen't drain you smartphone's battery(instead:use juice defender best powerful battery saving app dan any other sucking app like easy batter saver and others..)

Lookout:Powerful ok most downloaded antivirus gr8 features like avast overall same but its not free the give the pro features only for 15 days.
kaspersky:Cool powerful features as provided by Kaspersky but not all
Norton:Though it more powerful than avast but it takes up more space and lags as well all the features like web shield sms/call filter etc..you need to buy it.
Avast : 4/5 Lookout : 3.5/5 Kaspersky : 3/5 Norton : 2/5
