Can't speak for Vipre, but if that's the only change you've made, then it's the

  Subject: Vipre Antivirus with JAWS

  Hi. Has any other JAWS user installed the Vipre antivirus program? Ever since 
the latest update, released about two weeks ago, performance on my system has 
deteriorated. some programs take longer to open, I've had numerous crashes and 
JAWS is harder, if not impossible, to bring back without rebooting. 

  I have the latest release of JAWS 11 on an XP machine. My major memory hog is 
Outlook 2003. I've neither installed nor updated any other applications during 
this time.

  Any thoughts?
