I'm a little bit concerned that my ipad4 could contract a Virus. Has the product got an ANTIVIRUS program pre installed ?

    Unless you have jailbroken your iPad, there is no malware that can affect it. For reasons related to why there's no malware, there is also no anti-virus software available for the iPad. (Security features like sandboxing would prevent such software from actually scanning anything... apps on an iPad can only access their own data, and can cooperatively share files only on a fairly limited basis requiring approval on a case-by-case basis by the user.)
