Re: AVG 8.5

Hello Dennis,

Did you happen to have the luck of finding the 8.5 version of AVG for free 
somewhere?  If so, could you please tell me the web address I need to go to to 
also get this free version of 8.5?  Any help on this would be greatly 
appreciated.  Much thanks in advance.



All the best,

Hank

    Hello Dave,
    Well, I might be wrong about Norton then, I have not used it since I guess 
the end of 2005, when I got P Off with the higher cost of the annual 
subscription fee, I think it went up to $29!!.

    It is Alice that said AVG  keeps running all the time, I do not have 8.5 
installed yet, but surely receive the notice that I must by April 12!

    O K then, if Norton is a bummer, Any other reputable antivirus program you 
can think of that might be JAWS friendly, or at least somewhat accessible?

      Oh, gosh, no! Don't fall into the Norton trap. It is not even liked by 
sighted computer experts due to how it pervades so much of your operating 
system and overloads the CPU processing.

      I tossed Norton over 4 years ago and have never regretted it. It (version 
2005) was very inaccessible to JAWS so I could not set it up for my needs and 
could only helplessly have it run in default.

      I'm using AVG Free version 8 and have had no notifications at all.

      You report that it is constantly scanning. I only scan when I request, so 
that's something you can change in the settings.

      Dave

        Hello Friends,
        Well, for a few weeks now, every day when I first turn my computer on, 
I receive a message from AVG stating that I must switch to version 8.5 by April 
12, as my current version will no longer receive the latest definitions by that 
date.

        I am not sure what to do.
        It does not mention any charge!

        If I have to pay $35, I might as well add 14 and make it $49 and go 
with off the shelf Norton.

        I used it for 10 years with JAWS, granted I had to route  JAWS to PC to 
read most of the dialog boxes, but that was so rare, Norton took care of 
itself, and my computer also, it caught a few viruses, and in 10 years, I never 
had an issue with infections or such.

        I think I did have some one help me with the original Install, but 
after that, renewing the annual charge for renewal of the definitions downloads 
was not a problem with JAWS.

        With Best Regards,

          Hello Alice,

          Where did you get 8.5 free?  When I clicked on the update it said you 
had to pay $35.

            Has anyone downloaded the new AVG free 8.5? 
                I did, and now, it seems that AVG is running scans for hours 
every day. I guess this should make me feel all safe and protected from viruses 
and other goodies, but while this is going on, JAWS stutters and hitches up and 
locks up, and it's really hard to get anything done. 
                Anyone else noticing this? Are there any settings I can change 
to encourage JAWS to keep performing even when these scans are running in the 
background? 
            Thanks, 
            Alice
