    Your digitizer is gone dude....it has got some serious damages which lead to such a thing happening....i had a similar problem when my Lumia fell down the stairs.... Its a hardware problem and not a software one....so its not a virus...

    It's just an advertisement to download their software (which sometimes contains virus). And on the popup title, it usually says "Message from Webpage". So your phone haven't actually got a virus

    you can't.
    the most a website can really do is spam you with popup dialogs. solution: don't go there.

    not trying to be closed-minded, but I have seen zero evidence to the contrary and know WP is hardly the most loose with permissions which is why i'm so sure.

    more likely a coincidental defect or glitch in WP itself

    Well. If you are so confident for virus issue than please share why the system folder is consuming 80% of the space. As soon as i delete any data to free up some space, System folder consumed it.

    Kindly share remedial.

    If u keep a large amount of video files on your phone that are .mkv/flv (the like) and your phone can't recognise them as video files since playback is not native then you will have a large portion of your space taken up by "other" if you look up your storage.
    I think I used storage cleanup to sort that out when I had my 720 but also are you on Lumia Black or Cyan?

    You still have your system folder taking up 80% oof phone storage AFTER you removed apps???

    That's one of those generic scare tactic messages that websites put up quite often.

    Your Lumia does not have a virus. Beyond just the fact that it's a phone and not a PC it runs on the ARM platform, not on Win32 which would make it fairly difficult to get a virus that would actually work on it.
    I was browsing and some weird message popped up saying that my phone was attacked by a deadly virus which was created by some american hackers and then it proceeded to open another add page of some sort. Do I need to be worried? If so what should I do?

    I got that kind of issues on two brand new Windows 8 Phones, at the same time, after downloading and installing online tv apps. I'm convinced that there are no viruses, but would like to get rid of those persistent nagging screens telling me that my phones are infected and that I should download and install a virus removal tool which is actually coupled to a monthly subscription for something else. Those screens will not close or accept my "NO" inputs.

    There is no android Lumia. I suspect you have the wrong forum or no virus.
