Dear Devona, and Fellow JAWS List Members,I purchased my AVG at Office Max, orr Office Depot, or it could have been Staples. Any of the Office Supply Stores all sell Computer products, supplies including software.
I purchase all my computer supplies between these 3 stores, so I really forgot which one I purchased my AVG, but as I said, it was $10 less in the store than the AVG program and a two year definitions updates package for $29 as opposed to the $39 on the AVG Web Site.
I have no idea why. With Best Regards, Alan Miami, Florida Alan Dicey, President United States Braille Chess Association - USBCA "Yes, Blind or Visually Impaired People Can, and Do, Play Chess!!!"United States Braille Chess Association Home Page: http://AmericanBlindChess.org

I know Norton slows many machines to a crawl, and it even ran fast on my present HP, for the little time I used it. I didn't know AVG could be purchased over the counter, thanks.

Yes you must use the jaws cursor, but very easy that way to negotiate anything! Most folks will not agree with me, but I simply do not trust the same people who allowed such security holes or cracks in your Operating System, (Microsoft) to give you something to stop viruses, mal ware, spy ware! And mark my words, it will not be "Free" forever, just till Microsoft believe they have captured the market, destroyed the anti-virus program manufacturers, then they shall drop the bomb shell that it will now cost you! LOL! An old marketing trick! I shall keep this message, so I can say "I told you so"! AVG has never let me down,! You can purchase a AVG Disk which comes with a 2 year subscription to New definitions, Off-The-Shelf, in any computer store for $29, cheaper than on their Web Site! Why cheaper purchased in a store, I have no idea! But it updates twice a day, and I trust it completely!

I have AVG 9.0 free on my computer. I've heard it's accessible, and it is to a certain extent, but it's all jaws cursor. Is that how it's supposed to be? I'd ask about it slowing down jaws, but I think that's just because it makes the entire computer crawl. I've also heard about MS Essentials. Some of you have recommended it. I tried it on my laptop when one care was discontinued, but windows security didn't seem to recognize that there was protection on the computer and kept giving me warnings. I've a desktop now, windows XP, jaws 10, and I just wanted to know before I made a decision to either switch AVG scans to late at night when they won't interfere with me or to switch completely to ms essentials, is that normal? For the windows security manager not to recognize ms essentials? Does it run that quietly? And how do I know for certain that it's working if I keep getting warnings? Thanks so much.
