Does My Windows Tablet Need Anti-Virus

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips, Security Help, Uncategorized

A reader wanted to know about anti-virus protection for her new Windows tablet. “I just purchased a Windows 8.1 tablet.  One thing I would like to know is whether I need antivirus and malware protection other than that which is provided by Windows Defender and if so, how do you put it into a tablet?  Obviously, disks don’t work.  Do you download a program direct?  Are there special ones for tablets?’

Windows Defender combined with an anti-Malware program like MalwareBytes is a pretty good security combo for your PC. But you can also use third-party security software like Norton. Just go to their website to purchase and install the software.

You don’t need any special programs for tablets since Windows 8.1 tablets run the full version of Windows, so it uses the same software a laptop would.
