Yes,
One is already on your computer.
Microsoft Security Essentials, or Windows Defender.

Hi Stanley. If you are using windows 10 you already have an antivirus program. It’s called windows security, or windows defender and is quite good.

Windows Defender has received a positive evaluation in independent tests recently.

I would suggest taking other precautions as well. For example, you can turn on memory integrity protection in the security settings, if your hardware supports it. You can also install Microsoft’s security baseline configuration, which enables various security features.

Does turning on memory integrity protection negatively affect how JAWS or other screen readers work?

I wonder if memory integrity is just error correction, and not for malicious software?
Memory correction is by definition not as fast, but it catches errors in transmission of data, which could in the long run be faster.
If my computer supports it, I'd prefer to have RAM with ECC for that reason.
But I am not sure if memory integrity refers to that.

This may not be as good as a third-party software, but Windows 7 and maybe 10 as well has a malicious software tool included.
Press the windows key + R and type MRT and enter
That stands for malicious software removal tool.
HTH.

I recommend persevering with malwarebytes despite a somewhat annoying interface. It’s certainly usable, if not the most accessible thing out there. The thing is, it is a really good programme and the people behind it really know their stuff. It has saved my butt on at least three or four occasions, or at least helped me deal with obnoxious unwanted crap on my system.

Only thing is, like many programmes of its type, you should always make sure you understand a little of what you are getting rid of, when it flags stuff. Sometimes it will flag something like a change you made to the registry (either manually or through some other programme) that you actually want to keep/is actually wanted. You have to understand what kind of stuff MB flags and why. For instance, I replaced my task manager with Process Explorer some time back. Malwarebytes thinks this is a potential hack and so offers to remove the registry change.

Windows 7 has a very good built in antivirus program, Microsoft Essentials. I used this one for many years and had no issues. If it’s not on your computer already just go to the internet and type in ‘download Microsoft Essentials’, after downloading just run the program or you could run it right from the download page.

Memory integrity protection uses virtualization hardware in the CPU to protect code in the operating system kernel from malicious modification. That, at least, is what I understand from the documentation.

 

It’s part of Microsoft’s strategy to make life much more difficult for malware authors, and therefore safer for users.

According to an article I read, it’s also enabled by default starting with Windows 10 1809, so if there was a problem with this, it would have caused quite a stir by now.

4. You should now have, not checked Memory             button, showing but if this is checked your, Memory integrity ,  is already running, but if it isn't checked press the spacebar and your computer will let you know if this can be started or not.

Hey Mike. I just tried this and got as far as the checkbox for memory integrity. I checked the box, got a tone, but no audio feedback as to whether it been avtivated. I went back and check box is still unchecked which leads me to believe my system doesn’t support it. What determines whether a particular system supports this?

Hi Chris,
 
After pressing enter on, Core isolation details Link
 then pressing the spacebar on the, not checked Memory integrity Button

Jaws reported the following, New notification from Windows Security, Memory integrity can’t be started., There may be an incompatibility on your device.
 
You can get more details about the,  Memory integrity ,  feature by clicking on the link below.

Memory integrity protection uses virtualization hardware in the CPU to protect code in the operating system kernel from malicious modification. That, at least, is what I understand from the documentation.

 

It’s part of Microsoft’s strategy to make life much more difficult for malware authors, and therefore safer for users.

When using MalwareBytes the tab and shift-tab keys are your friends. Navigating with tab moves from one item to the next. Normally, the tab key is used to move to what we call actionable items, meaning that you move to things that you can interact with, such as a button, edit field, combo box, etc. MalwareBytes does this but it also uses the tab and shift-tab keys to move to text which is informational only. On a Web site this is something that I would normally flag as a violation because it could prove to be frustrating for keyboard-only users, even those users who aren't using screen readers. However, with MalwareBytes it seems to work and pressing tab or shift-tab is the secret to successfully navigate the program. As an example, while you are performing a scan the tab key moves to items, such as the number of items which have been scanned, the number of threats which were detected, etc.

The tab which is currently selected no longer identifies its state, an issue which I reported to them a while back. As an example, if the Scan tab has been selected you should, ideally, hear JAWS say "scan tab, selected" but the word "selected" is not announced.

I recommend persevering with malwarebytes despite a somewhat annoying interface. It’s certainly usable, if not the most accessible thing out there. The thing is, it is a really good programme and the people behind it really know their stuff. It has saved my butt on at least three or four occasions, or at least helped me deal with obnoxious unwanted crap on my system.

Only thing is, like many programmes of its type, you should always make sure you understand a little of what you are getting rid of, when it flags stuff. Sometimes it will flag something like a change you made to the registry (either manually or through some other programme) that you actually want to keep/is actually wanted. You have to understand what kind of stuff MB flags and why. For instance, I replaced my task manager with Process Explorer some time back. Malwarebytes thinks this is a potential hack and so offers to remove the registry change.

What about for windows 7? Malware Bites doesn't seem real accessible but I do need a good spyware program.

Are there any free antivirus programs out there that work reasonably well with Jaws?  Thanks a lot for the info.
