Is there any antivirus program downloadable for nokia 5130 xpress music

Hi,     

                 When i see my brothers phone, nokia 7210 supernova, when downloading some songs, the english letters including folders in the memoy card changes as other foreign languages or machine language, which i do not know. The unwanted downloads could not be deleted. Formatting will be losing all the music and video files he stored hitherto. I usually learnt that nokia java phones are not affected by the virus. But seeting this I want to safeguard my and users of nokia s40 phones. Is there any antivius program in jar format available as on now. Could the java phone be affected by virus. If there is any other program elsewhere , could some one tell the link, if the moderator accept its download link

Just to add to Farby's post, when in doubt its always good to scan your memory card with a Genuine antivirus software.

If you want to scan the MC..connect the phone to PC in Mass Storage mode and select the MC for scanning using the AV installed on your PC. You may also use a MC Reader. 

..and 'How that happened ?' Not sure.. But the point is even if its due to any virus, it can't infect the device..so no need to install any AV on the phone that just burdens the device ...

I, i HAVE ACCESSED THRO DATA AND STORAGE, BUT THEN I RECEIVED A MESSAGES THAT MEMORY CARD IS IN USE BY OTHER APPLICATION. So, I Have changed the theme from the memory card and then i could access it and could scan the virus. Thank you. This I rate as very useful, because, i found so many threads expressing, alternate programs and downloaded spurious programs which is given as jar files and did the extensive damage of slowdown of device and ultimate to device doom. Thank you farby.
