I am a complete non technical person so 3xcuse my simple language
on my browser of,my prestogio tablet i got a warning sayingi had a fatal trojan as a result of browsing adult,orientated websites. I was worried but didnt click on the link it gave but instead i deleted all apps with personal data and did a factory reset.
I already had avg protection but there didnt appear anything untoward.

One the reset was complete i installed kaspersky and avg and ran a scan on both that came back clear.

My question is did i have a trojan at all and is the action i took sufficient to clear it and should i take any further action.

It was probably a popup intended to trick you into believing you were infected, so you would install their "cleaner," which would have been the actual infection. If you restored to factory settings, you should be good.
