    Download this app CM Security - GRATIS Antivirus - Android-apps op Google Play
    After set Heuristics or behavior to HIGH..

    My sister was having the same problem. I tried a ton load of things none of which worked. However, as I was browsing through the install applications I saw an app that was installed on the SD card that could not delete so I opted to remove the SD card and just like that it was gone so you could try that and see if it works for you.

    PS. Still waiting to see if it comes back tell you the results in about 3 days.
