Sir,
Please advise how to fix the issue,as stated below.
Scan Results detected 2 threats, both classified as Malwares.
(1) "Music Provider"
(2) "com.androidhelper.sdk"
Since these applications are pre-installed by Motorola,these malwares cannot be removed.
Please advise how this issue can be resolved.
Can these Malwares be safely IGNORED?

MANI NV

AVG Antivirus PRO app is used.

Some sites say " com.androidhelper.sdk " is a virus, but it can't be removed by antivirus because they are system apps. You have to root your phone to remove system apps .

It's a very long procedure, so you can easily find a tutorial from XDA-developers or other sites :)
