    Hi,

    Despite my misgivings, my nephew convinced me to install showbox on my tablet a few days ago....

    ....it now appears to have developed some issues. I've removed showbox, but have read that some malware remains & lurks about collecting data etc.

    Anyone recommend a quick & easy way to give my tablet a good & thorough security clean up?

    Thanks folks.

    Generally it is best to search with several different anti-malware/spyware tools, each one has its merits & flaws.
