Hi,

I still don't know what is happening really, but, I see this damn thing is downloading from now and then.

Re: I catched first virus for Windows Phone? Yeah!

You may have just accidentally clicked on an ad. I know I've done that every now and again.

No, it generally takes you to the marketplace where you would have to confirm if you want to purchase. I have a hard time believing it's a virus.

I'm curious if someone hacked your account on the web and sent those apps to your phone?

I don't want to know your password, but is it something short that might be easy to hack? And/or is your xblive password the same one you use to access the email account you used to log into your xbl account? You should have those passwords separate.

So clicking on an ad can download something like an application from store?

Not necessarily but ads are sometimes on the bottom, so is the install button. If you accidentally clicked the bottom of the left side of the screen twice, you could've installed it. I know this because the WPCentral app did it to me with the audible app

I think sinime is is saying makes sense. You have an account compromise and its probably someone you know doing it. Beyond that, I don't see "virus" in what you're posting or the enthusiasm at which you do it. I think it is something more likely that someone you know has added apps to your phone. You should check your credit statement. At least use a password to the store as a rule.

Those are podcasts. You probably subscribed to one of the channels by mistake in the podcast section of the market.

Yeah a podcast makes more sense.. Did you maybe let someone play with your phone and they subscribed to the podcast on accident (or purpose)?
