Hello and welcome to the forums jack_st - thanks for joining!

You'd need to put the pictures from the camera on the computer, connect the tablet as USB mass storage and, when windows explorer pops up the explore window, drag and drop the pictures to the tablet. You should be putting the pictures in a folder called "pictures" or "DCIM" - either of these may be in another folder "media".

As for anti-virus... Android is Linux, so isn't really affected in the same way as Windows. I use something called Avast... it has some nice features... it scans apps as you install them and lets you know if they could be malwear and also has some more advanced options.

Hope you find this place useful... if you need any help navigating the forums, feel free to PM a Guide or a Mod
