    hi there, this is my first time on here and I am looking at my new tablet and wondering where to start, but the most important question firstly is - do I need to download anti-virus software ? and if I do is there one that people recommend for their tablets ?
    any help is gratefully received
    thanks

    Hi squoppy, welcome to the forum and congratulations on your new tablet. Glad you decided to join us here at Android Tablets. If you feel you need one, there are several free anti-malware apps available on the markets. I'm using Lookout on mine with no apparent performance issues. Another popular one is AVG Antivirus Free.
