I have managed to get up to a point where it says gradle project synch failed on a project that previously worked.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Also says "unable to continue until Android SDK is specified"
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It now says Install missing platform and synch project.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It then tries to install the SDK. It says "nothing installed. check your internet connection and try again"
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It keeps saying that JAVA_HOME is pointing to the JDK rather than the JRE

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Make sure that, whatever you install, it is from a fully legitimate source (preferably, the original manufacturer - in this case, for Java anything, that would be Sun Microsystems )
The best treatment for suspected malware could be to remove *all* programs related to or obtained from the suspicious source, and then restart the system or device, then reinstall *only* from non-suspicious sources.
At any rate, that's a start.
As for malware in an Android platform... there are several anti-virus utilities to use. 360 Mobile Security is one of the most-highly-rated:
There are also AntiVirus Security by AVG, and Avast Mobile Security apps.
I advise using only one of these at a time. If a scan with one of these three finds nothing, uninstall the security app, restart the device, then try the next one... one at a time, in short.
