      • Microsoft refuses to admit that malware can infect rt surface and internet explorer 11. In my case re-directs make IE useless as a browser.Since MS says it can’t happen I have a useless tablet

  1. Why does it say not to download an antivirus program onto a Microsoft Surface RT? My Samsung tablet has Free AVG on it.

  2. I have a Surface 2. This tablet is the most useless piece of tech I have EVER come across. Can’t install the Antivirus software I want, AVG.
    Will not let me install nearly any software at all that a home user will want, I can’t even get rid of RT & use a different OS, can put Windows 10 on the pro versions, but not this one, so I have a useless lemon, I knew I should have bought the Samsung Pad 4, which everything I want to install & run will work on…
    Can’t even get any decent games on the damn thing, except some on Facebook, can’t install them like you can with most of them, but can play through Facebook which is usually glitchy doing that. The only thing I can use it for is playing Movies & Music & that’s without my favourite software to play them, fecking Xbox media player, does that mean I can play Xbox games on it ?????? Going to see if I can install an Xbox game via USB stick & see what happens… If this doesn’t work I will be mounting it in a cabinet with a big hard drive full of Music & a high power stereo amplifier & it will just be a jukebox in my man-cave…
