Unhappy [Q] 360 Security needs root access to remove trojan

Hi!
I have an LG G2 on T-Mobile - for the 2 months I've had it, the device has been real swell. Super fast, nice screen, whatever.
I have AVG Security installed, as well as Lookout Mobile Security and 360 Security. I'm paranoid, whatever.
So I was doing a scan using 360 Security, because my phone was acting slow (OH NO AN LG G2 HAS BEEN SLOW WHAT HAS THE WORLD COME TO!!!). The scan concluded that I trojan. Specifically, it says:
Malware(1)
demo stub
Trojan(In ROM)

So I tap on "Finish", which leads be back to the screen for scanning the phone. I then tap on "Resolve All", which brings up a pop-up message box:
"Warning
The listed malicious programs have been flashed into the system directory. Root privileges are required to remove them. Please grant root privileges to 360 Security or re-flash your device with an official ROM.

demo stub
Trojan"
My only option here is to click "OK", at which point nothing else happens.

1. How can I allow 360 Security root access?
2. I've never rooted my device, nor have I done anything fancy with it (except I've been using Nova Launcher, that shouldn't cause any issues), so how could this have happened? No apps from unknown sources have been downloaded - and any app from the playstore that was scanned upon downloading as adware, malware, trojan, or posing any security threat was uninstalled immediately.

I really don't know a lot about this stuff, so I'm worried my phone will only get progressively slower, and perhaps someone out there is accessing any "information" on my phone. So how can I get 360 Security root access so it remove the trojan?
Thank you in advance!

i don't trust any antivirus app on my android
what i'm do if my phones become slow down, i'm just backup all the data+app and factory reset it.
btw if you want to get 360 security root access you must get rooted

Alright, thank you Arch9. What do you use to backup your phone?
Will factory resetting get rid of the Trojan?

Crap, then let's hope it's a misdiagnosis. Thank you all for the help!
