Someone was also talking about security essentials from Microsoft but I can't figure how to download it.

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.

  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.

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