    If you are able to see any characteristics of the mobile viruses in your Nokia N79 mobile phone then your mobile phone is definitely infected with the virus. The best way to remove the viruses from the mobile is to flash the mobile phone. You cannot remove the virus by formatting the memory card because the virus is attached or infected the system files of the mobile phone.
