RE: Does Microsoft Security Essentials, work with XP-Home

I know it works with XP Home, but not sure about JAWS 9. It should.

Subject: Does Microsoft Security Essentials, work with XP-Home

Hello Friends,
Does Microsoft Security Essentials, work with XP-Home and JAWS version
9.0156?

 

If so, it sounds pretty good.

However I wonder if it will be "free" forever? 

I mean, is this one of those things, that are like a teaser or such?

 

Best Regards,

        Check out the report on the site below.  Microsoft scored in the
highest category (Advanced Plus), while Eset scored in the next highest
category )Advanced).

                Hi Gerald,
                That's good to know.  Frankly, I'm really surprised to hear
that the Microsoft package outscored Nod32.  Do you know the URL where I can
download it?  I'll pass it along to people I know, and I'll keep it for
reference when my Nod32 license runs out, which will be early next year.
Thanks.
                Tom

                        NOD32 is a good anti-virus program, but in a recent
test, it was outscored by Microsoft Security Essentials, which is free and
completely JAWS accessible.  Like NOD32, it is totally unobtrusive and
updates its malware definitions automatically.  The only time you are aware
of it is when it detects a threat, at which point you can choose to
quarantine it or remove it completely.  It's so easy even a caveman could
use it.

                                Hi Robert,
                                I've got Nod32 version 2.7 and have kept it
updated with all the latest definitions and such.  I like it because it's so
unobtrusive; the only time I hear anything from it is when the definitions
get updated.  Other than that, I pretty much forget about it. 
                                Are you using a later version? How's the
interface, is it accessible?  I'd heard that version 3.0 had some
accessibility issues, so I'd avoided it until I could find out how well it
works. Thanks.
                                Tom

                                        If you want something that works
quietly in the background get Nod32.

                                                Can anyone suggest a good
anti-virus program that works well with Jaws 11?
