ES File Explorer is full of malware. I wouldn't put any versions after 4.0.2.3 on any device.

I'm still finding traces of it. I thought I had it all removed and just the other day I found more hidden files.

You can see a few alternatives here. I use Solid Explorer.

Thank you. If i do a factory reset on both my devices will that get rid of it completely?

I'm no good at hunting around for files.

Yes it will. A little extreme but it will get rid of all traces.

What exactly will one get rid of if they do a factory reset to get rid of ES File Explorer? With what bad things does it infect one's device? I doubt a factory reset is necessary, but I'm willing to change my opinion with new information.

Malware, as I understand it, is defined as software with malicious intent such as viruses, worms, trojan horses, ransomware, spyware etc. ES File Exporler apparently has added adware and bloatware beyond its basic function that many people don't want, but I think malware may be a bit of an overstatement. What are new versions of ES File Explorer doing that qualifies it as malware?

Many, if not most, free Android apps have ads with varying degrees of obtrusiveness. One may reasonably choose not to install them, but they aren't malware as defined above.

My older version of Es File Explorer is 4.0.5.1, and I like it a lot. It's still available on APKMirror, a safe download site. The current "malware" version is still available on Google Play. Does Google offer widely used apps with known malcious software on its site for download over long periods of time that infect a user's device so badly that one must resort to a factory reset ? Maybe, but I'd be surprised if it did.

That said, there are lots of good Android file managers. If I didn't have an older version of ES File Explorer, I'd probably install one of them.

Just Google "ES File Explorer Malware" (without the quotes") there is several articles that will explain all.
I don't want to go off topic too much but it has the potential of sending your private information to servers for malicious intent. It's been known to download apps without permission onto devices. It's nasty stuff. Feel free to open a thread in our Android forum if you need more assistance.

Thank you. I've done that now with both my Fire and my Samsung. I'm selling the Fire in the next week or two so that was no loss tbh and I'd rather be sure with the Samsung. A restore is sometimes a good way to clear the accumulated junk of a tablet and give it a fresh start so I don't mind doing one

Just a note for those that don’t know...the SD card is not immediately ready. When you start up the Fire, you have to wait a couple minutes while the Fire “checking SD card”. I stopped loading my apps on the card for that reason. I still Store media on the card, which is one of the reasons I bought a fire in the first place when I already have an iPad.

My account was charged for my preorder today, but no "shipped" notice yet. Should come any moment though, I expect.

Well I just ordered the All-New Fire HD 10 Tablet with Alexa Hands-Free, 10.1″ 1080p Full HD Display, 64 GB
for $189.99 Free Shipping for Prime Members
Due 10-11-2017
I have a HD8 with 32GB of memory plus a 64GB microSD card.
But my Grandson loves it so I told him Ok I will give that one to you.
I am looking forward to try reading PDF on this guy
10.1� 1080p Full HD display (1920 x 1200) with over 2 million pixels (224 ppi) I can also Enjoy widescreen movies, Youtube videos with wide viewing angles, less glare, and more brightness thanks to a stunning IPS (in-plane-switching) LCD display.
Has 2 quad-core processors. Two 1.8 GHz cores and two 1.4 GHz cores ,and up to 10 hours of mixed-use battery life
One feature I like on Kindle HD is Blue Shade, an exclusive Fire OS feature that automatically adjusts and optimizes the backlight for a more comfortable nighttime reading experience.
should FLY !!
PS: ordered a case on Amazon too first one I ordered was 40 bucks then I looked around read a article about the cases found on on Amazon Infiland All-New Fire HD 10 2017 Case - Premium Folio Smart Stand Cover with Auto Wake/ Sleep Function for All-New Fire HD 10 Tablet 10.1" (7th Generation, 2017 Release ) got it for $10.95 with prime shipping beats 40 bucks :-)

I decided last night to order direct from Amazon but the one I want, Black 64GB, won't deliver until the 24th so I'm not pre ordering. I'll wait until the page shows in stock and delivery tomorrow. If I end up waiting until Black Friday so be it.

Mine shipped and should be here on release day (Wed the 11th). Unless my highly-dysfunctional local post office decides they don't want to deliver it that day, that is.
