Hi Vincent,

Really there is little configuration to be done when it comes to jaws and
windows 7. As for jaws not reading the UAC screen, if this is a program you
know to be safe that you are installing, simply pressing the key combination
of "alt + Y" for yes to allow or "alt + N" for no if you wish not to install
this software. Why jaws is not reading the screen, well what version of jaws
do you have and who installed jaws, was it yourself?, a friend or whatever.
Why I ask is that sometimes sighted people just don't follow the correct
line of instruction when installing the types of software we use.

Subject: [vip_students] windows 7 problems

hello Paul and others
 well I am finally getting rid of vista as I have had enough with it and
jaws not reading stuff for me on it. so I got a windows 7 laptop.    if
someone has instructions  to set it up for jaws it would be great.the first
problem I found is when trying to install a program like spam fighter or any
other program  when the dialog box comes up  asking do I want to continue
with the installation   jaws will not read out the dialog box nor can I tab
around the box to the options. when I uninstalled nortons antivirus I was
able to read and tab around this box.  can someone suggest something for
this.  I now installed avast and the same problem is back again. second
avast. I installed avast 5.0  I remember Paul saying  he was going to check
this out to see if it was accessible. is it. if not can I get the download
link for avast 4.0.  and last I installed spam fighter  but do not see the
folder for it in my windows live mail.  and don't know where it is gone. any
suggestions for this would be grateful. many thanks in advance.
