Hi,

I recently rooted my Lenovo K3 mobile to remove some pre-installed apps etc.
Well today I ran Malware and a trojan appeared which I thought would be a good idea to delete.

android/trojan.spy.lyps.a/system/priv-app/guliservice.apk

Malware asked if I wanted to remove it, I said yes, then it asked if I wanted to remove the file SystemService, I said yes again but then I got a message saying delete failed.

Probably a good idea because I understand SystemService might be something you do not want to remove.

Can someone tell me if I am allowed to remove SystemService, or tell me a way to remove the guliservice.apk separately.

I did notice one thing, the file path is spelt differently when I looked on Google:

android/trojan.spy.lyps.a/system/priv-app/guliservice.apk (On my mobile)
android/trojan.spy.lips.a/system/priv-app/guliservice.apk (On Goggle)

Is this what is preventing me from removing it?

I am a complete novice so please use technophob speak.

Thanks,
Mark
