    Without thinking clearly, I downloaded an "iOS simulator" called "iPadian". It turned out to be nothing like it. Just a bunch of web links inside the software. Some people on the we says that the software contains viruses or malware etc. Does anyone know? And how do I best check for malware and trojans etc?

    I downloaded from here: http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/downloads/3249967/ipadian-02/

    I do see some posts around saying it does contain malware.

    Do a scan with this adware scanner.

    YES. its LOADEDwith adware and malware. I downloaded it and have spent all afternoon tracking down the places it sent all the different files. BS antivirus software that outsources you to india so they can control ur computer and get ur CC info. ontop of it all the app doesn't work anything like advertised. you cant play apps. and you cant even log in to your iTunes account from it which makes it completely useless for purchasing things.
