Mary,
Where can I find this application?  I've about had it with McAfee's 
inaccessibility.
Thanks much,
Lynnette

  Jake,

  Yes, AVG is wonderful. I have the paid one because I wanted a little more 
control. I didn't want it to scan my PC every morning at 8 A.M. so I was able 
to turn that off. I did, however, want it to do automatic updates, which it 
does when updates are available. They do a great job; the program just does its 
thing, once it's installed, and doesn't interfere with anything else. 

  A firewall is also necessary to help you control intrusive software. You can 
have control of what comes in and what gets sent out. I use Sygate but there 
are others; before I retired, there was some discussion of Look and stop, which 
I think is a firewall from England. My work place used a totally inaccessible 
firewall; I don't remember what it was, but all the blind employees couldn't 
stand the awful thing.

  Mary
