    So I went to a website on my blackberry, and a popup said that my system is at danger and should download Antivirus 2009. I know the dangers of Antivirus and have removed it from 2 computers at my organization. However, I am not sure what can happen on a blackberry.

    It's been running slower since the popup. Is there a diagnostic I can run? I backed up my blackberry before I updated the OS. Should I just restore the "image" and start fresh?

    Thanks

    There are no viruses for blackberry. Pull your battery out for 30 seconds with the phone on this will clear your cache.

    a popup said that my system is at danger ...
    LOL, what a sales pitch, if you get this message, you could also get a virus.

    I is most likely aimed at Windows users, they are the fertile breeding grounds of most virus.

    BlackBerry is immune to anything targeted at Windows. It is possible to craft a malicious program for BlackBerry, but it would have to be installed. It can not infect by taking advantage of security hole, their are none.

    If you notice your Browser running slowly, pull the battery and try it again.
