I have searched this morning for a maintenance guide as my KFHD is running slower than normal. Is there a way to delete history, temp files, run defrag? Also, is there virus protection built into this devise or do I need to add it? Didn't think I would use the web much but since I got my Kindle my PC is gathering dust! Love this gadget and want to take care of it. Thanks in advance for replies!

Your users guide comes preloaded on your kindle...I suggest you start there as it's there where you're told how to delete cookies, history, etc. No built in virus protection.

Thanks Fud. Will read it thoroughly. Hope virus protection is addressed there. Bugs worry me.

Little chance of bugs if you purchase apps, etc. from Amazon. Side -loading apps from other sites there is a (very) small chance. A simple reset can sometimes help as well, after dumping caches/cookies.
