Hi Les

Thanks for your reply. It’s an HP Chromebook 14 db0000na.

 I had a look at the link you posted but couldn’t tell if it was there.

Regards

Mat

Try downloading it from the Google Play Store, you won't be allowed to if it's not compatible and you will receive a warning instead

Why do you need it. Chromebooks have an inbuilt virus protection provided by Google via the cloud.

IT Works fine I have had a Lenovo Chromebook for several years and never had any Problem.IT is great for browsing the net. So when I don't need to fire up the PC and wait for it to boot up I just fire up the Chromebook and straight onto the web,

That’s good to hear. 

I had a nice guy from HP support tell me all about the inbuilt virus protection. Good aftersales customer service!
