Get it HERE (price varies from $100 to $145, depending on who’s selling it and how fast you want it):
Inexpensive kick-ass Windows 8.1 tablet. Works GREAT. Weighs less than a pound.
MAKE SURE TO READ BELOW ON REMOVING THE INSTALLED Crap Ware (installing all of that is part of how the manufacturer keeps the price low…they’re paid to add this crap by the people who make the crap):
Install Malwarebytes, free version: https://www.malwarebytes.org/
Run it and let it remove everything it wants. Then go into Control panel and make sure all these are removed. (and read and uncheck things in the removal windows, they’re tricky and try to ADD more things!). Remove all these if any are still there:
Pro PC Cleaner
ESET Activation Helper
Do NOT allow the tablet to add the anti-virus program (Pro PC Cleaner) at start up. Delete that and instead run Windows Defender. (Included). If the tablet starts talking to you and telling you to call some phone number, Pro PC Cleaner got installed. Malwarebytes will get rid of it.
You can add Ad-Aware Web Companion to keep this computer from switching your home page on any browser to Bing, and Web Companion is light and good to have for extra protection anyway.
Then pay 5 bucks and get Start8, this little program that adds the start menu back to Windows 8 (and yeah, and it’s better than the free thing classicshell).
I added Firefox, made it my default browser. Add AdBlock Plus: https://adblockplus.org/
Also added a 64 Gb SD card to extend memory (25 bucks).
Get a travel mouse.
Price with everything and shipping was about 200 dollars.
The Free VoIP program I test at the end is FeenPhone, available from www.feenphone.com
Radio show played as test in this video is The Freedom Feens.
