how to find where downloads are stored on the tablet

I have had McAfee anti-virus software downloaded onto my tablet but I am unable to locate the download to install this software.  Where do they reside?

You might find that AIR Browser is better than File Manager. Download it, then use the find feature.

 

Does McAfee make antivirus for the PlayBook?

Thanks for the idea.  Air Browser did locate my download files.  Unfortunately, it described my McAfee download as a file type the Playbook doesn't recognize.  Back to the drawing board!

Are you wanting to scan for threats to the PB or just downloaded files that might be virus carriers for other OS types such as Windows? If the firmer, don't bother as there aren't any AFAIK!

The native PB File Manager I'd hopeless. It doesn't folder navigation as one might reasonably suspect, unlike AirBrowser.

A virus checker is worthless on a PlayBook. No need for it.
