I found out today that my Android Wi-Fi contains malware (not sure how it go there). If I were to uninstall it, how can I reinstall it? My AVG antivirus found malware but I'm scared to uninstall it because I'm not sure how to reinstall it. Any thoughts?

    What did you mean Android Wi-Fi? Is this Android smart phone or chrome notebook/notepad or something like that? As far as my knowledge, it is almost impossible that a smart phone could be affected by virus/ malware. It seems something misunderstanding/mistake might be occurred there. If it is android smart phone, it is better to carry that mobile to an authorized service center and ask for the same. They are in a better position to help you.

    What do you mean the Wi-Fi has malware? Usually programs or apps are effected. What was the name of the malware your AV found? Usually WI-FI issue may be caused by someone breaching your Wi-Fi security. You can fix this sometimes by connecting the your Wi-Fi router with a cable connection and changing you password and other settings to tighten up security.

    Moreover, if it is Android based mobile/tab or Chrome notebook, not necessary to install any antivirus, while that type of system itself has built-in method that is enough to prevent any malware bites. If you are suspecting something like hack etc. you can always change passwords including your mail with complex ones.
