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?

    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?
