Hi crimdernes,

Any antivirus can be used to scan the files on the phone. Open the antivirus and select the drive for the phone/memory card. Perform the scan on the selected drive to scan for virus.

I would recommend you to use an antivirus from Play Store. Antivirus running on the phone may slow down the speed of the phone.

Thanks DellManshuS, but how can I install an android app on the pc? I don't know if I'm right but I believe all of the apps in google play are android. Is there an application for running android on pc. Thanks.

Hi crimdernes,

I meant that you can scan the files on the phone or the memory card using the PC antivirus however, antivirus from Google Play Store is recommended to scan android apps.

If you want to run android apps on PC, you may use an emulator designed to do so. BlueStacks is one of the most popular software to do so. Please click the link mentioned below for more information:
