I've been playing around with my new torch 9810, and now the battery seems to be draining like mad (down to 10% after three hours of just having it lying around, not a single call made) - and some programmes are playing up AND I keep getting a message that the camera and videocamera are in use although I'm not using them.
Is there a virus on this thingy? - How to find out? has someone hijacked my camera to spy on me???
slightly paranoid, hoping for help!
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
I recommend that you attempt to boot into Safe Mode:
It may take you multiple attempts to get the ESC key sequence (press/release/hold) correct, so be patient. When successfully into Safe Mode, see what happens.
If the behavior ceases, then think carefully...what happened just before this behavior started? A new app? An update? A Theme? Something else? Think carefully as the smallest change could be causal...and attempt to undo whatever that was.
But if the behavior continues in Safe Mode, then you may need to consider more drastic actions -- WIPE, OS Reload, BBSAK Wipe/Reload, and the "Bare Bones" OS Reload Process. To prepare, you should be sure that you have a full backup to your PC...please review the Backup link in my auto-sig on this post for instructions.
You may also need the use of these tricks:
Good luck and let us know!

HI, and thank you. I did what you said, and what messed up the phone was a call blocking app... Just how that interferes with my reading already downloaded epub files is a mystery to me, but it did. So - thank you very much, problem solved (unwanted advertising calls continue, unfortunately), and I'm really glad I didn't have to go into the more profound measures.
