i have 3 mobile-phones: (lollipop, eclair and windows-phone-8). i often connect them to my dad's laptop via USB. older androids can be connected as UMS, newer androids replace UMS by MTP and PTP. i recently found out that my dad's laptop has been infected. i dont want these mobile phones to be vectors of infections to my laptop. how can i remove from these phones, -malware that can infect PC(windows)- (using antivirus rescue disc from my PC, via USB)? i dont see a "scan for malware" option in the right-click context menu of the icon of my phone (and its subfolders) when i open it in file explorer in windows. so i am thinking of scanning them using an AV rescue disc. i have already downloaded updatable rescue discs of bitdefender and kaspersky. how am i to proceed?
