    antivirus?

    Still yet to receive my first tablet (superpad2, flytouch3) but would like to know a couple of things before I start playing with it.

    I will be surfing the internet and downloading apps from the android market so I assume I will need some kind of protection from viruses. What do you recommend? Is this something I download from the android market?

    thanks

    Stick with apps that have a user rating. Also there are many of these AV on the market and Amazon App Store. The one on Amazon seems to be forced to ask you for your name, last name your zip code, email address to get free updates. But when you download the same AntiVirus Free from Market it doesn't ask you for all of that. It downloads free updates. I scan everything it comes up clean. Android Optimizer and Super Box do that too look for Malware. Dr. Web for Android as been out since the early 2010 for tablet. I use that prior never found anything on the tablets out of the 17 I've owned. AntiVirus Free is okay you can turn off the service and only run it when you want too.
