Do I need to install anti-virus on my new Nook HD tablet? I will be using it for surfing the web and email.

If I do need it, please can I be pointed to a reputable free anti-virus which will load onto the Nook.

Many thanks.

AVG's AntiVirus Security - Free seems to be the popular choice. I've had no problems with it.

Thanks for the advice - but when I ask it to Install, I get: "This app is incompatible with all your devices".

Did I read somewhere that there is a problem with loading apps onto Barnes and Noble (Nook) tablets?
