    • IF your device is not listed, use the second method…

      If you keep seeing auto run virus on your android, you need to connect it to a secure system with active antivirus, and grant it access to access the your internal file, scan it and you'll be free from it. Or if you can go to playstore and download a good antivirus to scan ur Android device with it.
