    Do i need an anti virus app?

    I've been sing my iPad well for a few months but all of a sudden I am sometimes having problems with the Internet. When accessing bookmarks on my google search engine I find that sometimes I can only access the first page. Does this mean I have a virus and if so is there an app to remove viruses?
    Thanks

    There are no known viruses that can infect a stock iPad.

    Try restarting Google?

    That's what I always try if an app is misbehaving.

    CLOSING APPS: If an app has stopped responding or closes on launch, try the following: * Home screen * click the Home button twice * Tap and hold on the app * When it jiggles, tap the (-) to close it * Double-click the Home button and re-open the app

    An iPad that has not been jail broken cannot be infected by a virus.

    Not only are there no viruses capable of affecting the iPad, there are also no antivirus apps. By their very nature, they are impossible for a third party to write, since they would need to hook into the operating system and monitor everything else that is running. iOS simply does not work this way.

    The bottom line is enjoy your iPad, and let Apple worry about security. It's one of the things we pay them for.
