Re: AVG Version 8 Accessibility

Rick,

Well, the question I actually asked wasn't off topic. But, honestly, if I 
didn't ask it clearly enough, it's not worth pursuing. Absolutely no 
problem. And I'm glad you've been successful with AVG, too!

Take care.

Gosh, Rick, I wasn't arguing about anything! I'm afraid my initial comment
went missing somewhere along the line. Please, don't go on protesting. I'm
not arguing with you about any of this. Okay? Really. Don't worry about it.

I'm not saying anything about who should use AVG or Avast or Nod32.  I only
stated it works here for me.  I don't want drawn into a debate about anti
virus programs since this list is about jaws and not who's anti virus
program is better.

Oh, okay. So AVG Free Edition version 8 is perfectly compatible with Jaws
except that you have to launch it without jaws running, and then it's as
easy to use with Jaws as Outlook express? Okay. Then I guess a lot of us
ought to stick with AVG instead of converting to Avast or Nod 32 as promoted
by the clerics. Thanks for clarifying your position.

Yeah yard your extremely confused.  I never said it didn't work.  I use it
here and except for having to turn jaws off to start the avg control center
and turning jaws back on there are no problems.   I was refering to FS being
able to fix jaws so it doesn't crash when running AVG's control center.  I
never at any time said it didn't work with jaws.  Hope you are no longer
dazed and confused.

Rick.

I reported nero 7 crashing jaws to FS and they fixed it in jaws 9.0.  So
sorry I disagree.  They can fix issues if told about it.

Rick,

"Except for the Jaws issue?" I'm laughing. If I were to say I had a Jaws
issue with a piece of software, that would be my way of saying that I
couldn't use it very well or, more likely, couldn't use it at all. After
about 25 years of using computers, and learning my way around a lot of
different applications in their various releases, the only experiences I've
had with not being able to use one has been in the past few years since I've
needed Jaws, when it's not Jaws accessible. Now, I'm not at all distressed
if you're handy with this program, but what do you actually mean? At this
point, after all the messages that have been posted about AVG Version 8 Free
Edition, I'm beginning to get the impression that in fact it works just fine
with Jaws, reveals its menus and functions and accepts keyboard input and
everything, except just that you have to exit jaws when you launch it and
then restart Jaws, or else Jaws won't even see it or something like that.

I'm guessing I must be a little confused. If so, please set me straight. I'm
still chuckling. I'm sure I've misunderstood something.

thanks.

Has anyone bothered to notify Freedom Scientific about this.  They probably
are going to have better luck at solving the pproblem than possibly grisoft.
Also for the record I'm using the free version of 8.0 here and except for
the jaws issue I don't seem to be having any problems using it at all so
far.

Hi, AVG are aware of the JAWS problem, however they have not yet released a
"patch" for AVG 8 that will work with JAWS. Sorry about that, but that's how
it stands. They hope to fix a release by the end of this year though.
