    AntiVirus went off 4 times during sync of iPad......why?

    I have regularly been syncing my new iPad 3 to my PC without any issues, and I had just finished syncing my daughters iPad 1 without issue.

    Today, I did a sync on my iPad, the 3, and during the backup phase, the Security Suite alarmed 4 times.

    The supppsed virus that went to the vault is: Win32-Mal0b-HU [Cyp].

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    What Security Suite are you using? Win32-Mal0b-HU [Cyp] is malware, there are a number of them that are identified using that name. Some of them can actually attach themselves to your AV Suite. Wouldn't have thought you would have picked it up from any of your iPad's though.

    Try switching off your Security Suite and download something like Malwarebytes Anti Malware (free) and try and clear it.

    Edit: There are some tips here

    CLOSING APPS: If an app has stopped responding or closes on launch, try the following: * Home screen * click the Home button twice * Tap and hold on the app * When it jiggles, tap the (-) to close it * Double-click the Home button and re-open the app
