I got two emails saying someone accessed my facebook, using an unknown device...give time and IP address. wondering if someone installed a snoop program , for loss of better words. also have ROOT\LEGACY_SCHEDULE\SOFTWARE, internet says a trojan, but I don't want to uninstall it before I know I am doing the right thing.

Look at those emails VERY carefully. They are likely fake, and ask you to use a link to connect to Facebook, but the link is really some other website that hopes to steal your login name and password.

Agree with Phil, email could most certainly be a fake, but also check the IP, you sure it's not you logging into the device? If it's in your city may be it was you.

If it's a Trojan, don't take any chances, there is never a 100% certainty it's been completed removed, I suggest a clean slate reinstall of the O/S
