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.

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