Hi, Dave. Yes, I have disabled vipre and confirmed that it is the cause of the problems. My dilemma is that I have a consultant who is an expert in security, and Vipre is the application he believes provides the best antivirus protection. Microsoft essentials is on my radar, but I'm loath to give up Vipre without figuring out a possible solution to my system's existing apparent conflicts with Vipre. I've never come across a single reference to Vipre on this list, but I'm still hoping someone has worked with it and JAWS.

Can't speak for Vipre, but if that's the only change you've made, then it's the first to suspect. Have you considered uninstalling it and then running your system and applications for a while to see if there is a significant improvement?

I use MS-Essentials, and it appears to be non-intrusive over the year that it's been operating.

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?
