Bear with me here, there is a rationale behind asking this...I had some viruses and malware on a laptop. I ran Malwarebytes, superantispyware and AVG (free versions) and took the remedial action. Because I am paranoid I then rest my router several times and then bought a new laptop as I need 100% confidence for shopping for elderly family members. The new laptop became infected with the SAME malware that affected the old one, before I had even visited any website other than Malwarebytes and superantispyware to download. And even though I have NOT switched that old laptop on since I thought I had isolated the issues with the free software. I am in touch with a technical support subscription service (iYogi) but they cannot explain why this has happened. My ISP refused to accept that this even happened, saying it is impossible. Great. I am thinking of getting an iPad on credit as Apple products do not seem to suffer the same problems. This is my STUUUUPID question: is there any way the malware and viruses that are affecting my laptops and/or router will or could affect the iPad? I don't want to fork out another hefty sum to find the same problems. Any thoughts, guys?
