Windows Defender for anti-virus. Free version of MalwareBytes for anti-malware.

Defender is already built into your Windows 10 and probably good enough for 
your purposes. It's less annoying than free AV out nowadays, which is always 
full of ads and hardly ever great from an accessibility standpoint. And it does 
detect a lot of stuff. Arguably, too much. But you can exclude areas of your 
drive if you are getting false positives.

Re: [JAWS-Users] Accessible free anti virus

2018-02-10 Thread JM Casey
When I used Avira, it kept throwing up abnoxious, mostly illegible windows
onto the screen. I could not get much actual feedback about anything useful
the program did.

I understand that Microsoft was once not on the ball with anti-virus. In the
old days, almost anything was better than their MSAV software. But now? Why
go for a free anti-virus that's full of ads and other annoyances when you
can use a free AV that's built into your operating system? I can hardly
believe I'm for once not advocating the use of a third-party product, but
there you go. Seems to me, if you want good third-party anti-virus, why not
pay for it?

Even there though, you're faced with some dicey propositions. Mcfee or
whatever it's called from Network Associates is used by a lot of commercial
and government groups. Guess what? It's crap. Count on it to save your butt
and it will only start screaming at you after the damage has been done. I
don't know much about it lately but I've heard horrible things about
Norton/Symantec as well. And these are products that charge a hefty price
for their use.

Hey there, Dennis be mighty careful as eset has made claims that they're
accessible with jaws.  The reason that I caution you is that the last
totally accessible version of eset that was fully accessible was version 8.
I can't speak for their current version but when I tried version9 which was
claimed to be accessible it just totally wasn't accessible.  I was never
able to change any settings.  I brought this to eset's attention and opened
a ticket and was finally told that it would be considered by development but
then never heard any updates.  There had been some traffic that the newest
version was accessible if you turned off gaming mode but I haven't tested
it.  Frankly, I'd check out the viper products either total security or

Defender is already built into your Windows 10 and probably good enough for
your purposes. It's less annoying than free AV out nowadays, which is always
full of ads and hardly ever great from an accessibility standpoint. And it
does detect a lot of stuff. Arguably, too much. But you can exclude areas of
your drive if you are getting false positives.

Re: [JAWS-Users] Accessible free anti virus

2018-02-09 Thread Jason White
I've been following advice from various sources and using Windows Defender,
with the free edition of Malware Bytes installed to perform occasional
scans. I also keep the operating system and applications up to date. Running
out of date software is a very effective way to become vulnerable to
malware.

So far, neither tool has detected anything. I don't know whether that's
because I've managed to avoid malware, or because the malware is avoiding
detection. I hope it's the former.

Have you found an AV that is a: not annoying and b: diligent? I don't think
I have. Not since the DOS days.

Windows Defender for anti-virus. Free version of MalwareBytes for
anti-malware.

Defender is already built into your Windows 10 and probably good enough 
for
your purposes. It's less annoying than free AV out nowadays, which is 
always

full of ads and hardly ever great from an accessibility standpoint. And it
does detect a lot of stuff. Arguably, too much. But you can exclude areas 
of

your drive if you are getting false positives.
