Re: please help/norton accessibility with jaws 2018?

Hi Rick,

Yes, but as of Windows 10, Microsoft has bundled Security Essentials with Windows Defender, as one package, so Windows 10 users don't have to look in multiple places for their threats.

If memory serves, I believe Windows Defender came with, or was available for
Windows 8.

HTH,

I was under the impression Security Essentials was renamed defender for
Windows 10.

Am I incorrect?

Hi



I thought that Microsoft had dropped Security Essentials several years ago
and that it was incompatible with Windows 10. Does your organization have a
special contract with Microsoft, or is Microsoft Security Essentials really
available to the general public today?

Let me tell you about Microsoft Security Essentials;

I work for the State Of Nebraska, and that is the only protection it uses on
all of its computers.

Microsoft won't say it's all you need, because they have had anti-trust
suits for monopolizing.

I trust Security Essentials more than any other.

Also, Microsoft has a malware checker built in as well.

Just bring up the run window with Windows + R

and type in:

MRT

Which stands for

malicious-software removal tool

A friend is just about demanding I use Norton as it is free with my internet
service. I have used it before and found it not only inaccessible as far as
not being able to read their constant pop-ups, but it keeps popping up on
the Web and, again, I can't read the reason why. Please someone, anyone
who's used this program recently, set one of us straight regarding this. He
wants to put it on my computers and thinks Internet Essentials is dangerous.
Okay so if it's so dangerous is there another accessible program you use?
And if I'm wrong about Norton, can someone tell me how to set it up so it
just runs in the background and stops popping up and not allowing me to read
what's on the screen? Using Windows 7 and Jaws 2018.



I appreciate your help.
