    Recently, when I go on the internet or something I get a popup saying that "my android may be infected" or "your phone is infected with a virus or malware that is trying to access bank info, etc". It doesn't happen all the time, but it will just randomly redirect me to it and I can't backspace out of it or anything!! I did that hold the back button thing and exited that way, but what should I do??!! Sorry its long, but help!!

    Most probably you are looking at a full screen pop-up ad on a web page that you visited.
    I would go into the settings of internet explorer and clear the history.

    Viruses and Windows Phones have been discussed numerous times already - at this point, there are no known viruses for Windows Phones. If ever there are any, they can't do any damage in Windows Phones due Sand Boxing Technology.

    Hence, the advice of Dietrich Cleijne would be helpful - clear your Internet History and browsing data. You may also want to delete your Temporary Files from Storage Sense.
