Re: new to windows, need help with software selections
To uninstall Avast, use JAWS, you can use a JAWS demo. then uninstall it from programs and features. Clidck the remove button with the space bar. When you do so dialogs will come up or something like dialogs. they won't be quite like dialogs because they will be the Avast installer. Tab through them and see what you want to do. I'm not sure just what you will find or if you will come across anything you might need help with because of not being spoken.
Also, get the unchecky utility. It doesn't know about all unwanted programs installed with a lot of free software but it will alert you to a good deal and allow you to avoid the installation. You may not have an accessible way to avoid such installations so uncheckie is more important to blind users.

Thanks for all your suggestions. I just installed the cdex software using the link you provided. As a warning to all of you, if you do install this software, you might need sighted help to uncheck the option to install recommended software, because there seems to be no accssible way to decline it. If you do install the cd ripper as it wants, you'll get the following additional software
bite fence antimalware
advanced pc care
and your homepage will be set to yahoo web search in your default browser. I'm still puzzling over how to remove avast, since I can't seem to click or simulate a left click on the uninstall button, NVDA can't seem to route the mouse pointer to the uninstall button using the caps lock plus kp devide shortcut, but the others were easily removed. Despite all of this, I like cdex. I don't like the sneaky bundling of software, and I'm rather shocked that open source software would stoop to such a tactic. I'm not annoyed at anyone hear though, I want to make that clear but at the extra installations. I am going to install chrome and try it out, since I did like chromium in the few minutes I played around with it.
