    Hi every 1, just purchased 64g playbook and i'am a total newbie, do you need anti virus or security, avg etc loaded for scans? Might sound like a daft question to some experts out there but would appreciate some info. Spending more time on crackberry when I should be learning how to work this machine though.ps I prefer malt to brandy.

    No need for antivirus.

    All antivirus apps will be Android ports as it is very, very challenging (near impossible) to get a virus on a PlayBook, but rather easy on an Android.

    If you download files from questionable sources then move the files to another computer you might need antivirus. You do not have to worry about the Playbook itself at this time. Perhaps if they really become very popular some ~!@#$% will take the time to find a way around QNX security, but I am not aware of any incidents of viruses on a Playbook.
