Amazon home screen

Can Amazon home screen on a 4k max interfere with other apps?

Hmmm, that’s a tough one. In what way are you experiencing an issue?

They certainly could if it’s a rogue app from an unscrupolous developer. Then there’s malware, addware, spyware and you get the idea. Is there a certain app you are thinking of?

Run virus total and do a deep scan using defsquid

can i ask a question…is defsquid an anti-virus product, along with all the other tools it comes with, or should i get the virus total Powerfader just mentioned, and is it part of the TP RAI, thanks for any help…

I use both. Defsquid has an AV module but Virus Total is a dedicated AV app. So I like to double check one against the other. Defsquid may show a positive result in a trusted app, and then I run a test with Virus Total on that app and see what the results are. I then do an internet search for the name of any found virus results. I know it seems like a lot of work, but I choose to do it for my own peace if mind.


good deal, i have been using only Defsquid thinking it was an AV, so i will be looking for the Virus Total today…thanks for ur quick response, i too don’t mind the work to get peace of mind…


I believe these just identify a virus. I don’t believe they clean them like an anti virus program would?

I think you’re right PF. Anything Defsquid found only gave me the option to delete, same with Virus Total. I don’t think any AV program “cleans” or removes any offending virus etc. but usually just quarantines the app into a “safe” folder where they can’t interact with the OS. Then you choose to delete it if you want.

Is there such an animal that is an anti virus protection for an Android box? Something like Norton, etc…?

Yes. All the top AVs have a product for Android, including boxs. Avast, AVG, Trend Micro, to name a few.

Have you used any of these?

I use to use Norton and MalwareBytes but let my sub for Norton drop as I use defsquid and when it finds anything I research and then delete the app when anything is found.

So with Defsquid and VirusTotal both installed, everything should be fairly safe. I have a vpn, a paid IPTV service, I dont record anything (for now anyway!) -download or visit any torrent sites, basicly I just watch tv. But if a AV was deemed nessesary and used, that would effect overall performance of video, correct?

The two apps do not fix anything, is that right? After exiting a stream on Kodi, the 4k max loses it’s steady stream where vid and audio stutter. Any app out there for diagnosing problem?
