best anti-virus program
I have been using Avast for a while - I really like it. Works on my Android phone too.

i've always used lookout mobile security. it also has a "mobile locator" so if you lose it you can still find it..but i assume that won't work on a wifi tablet.

After having used lookout and a few others i can attest that Avast is wonderful. Can install the locator/wiper as a system app making it less likely the theif will get around it. Tons of great features.

Though it's a German website, but the test is the most current I can find from 3rd mar 2012:

Here are the best with >90% detection rate:

  • Dr.Web anti-virus Light
  • F-Secure Mobile Security
  • IKARUS mobile.security LITE
  • Lookout Security & Antivirus
  • Kaspersky Mobile Security (Lite)
  • Zoner AntiVirus Free
And here the losers with 0% detection rate:
  • Android Antivirus
  • Android DefendeR
  • LabMSF Antivirus beta
  • MobileBot Antivirus
  • MT Antivirus
  • MYAndroid Protection Antivirus

I've been using Norton Security on my TF300 and so far I like it.

There is a free and paid version.

Haven't upgraded to the paid version yet, the free offers everything I need so far.
