Re: Slow behavior of NVDA in Outlook 2016

It's very unlikely that antimalware programs would cause the behavior.  the computer in general isn't slow.  It's possible that add ons might, but not likely. 
I'm not sure if there is a way to run NVDA with no add ons running but you can run NVDA and disable all the add ons, then see if anything changes in the performance of Word.  If you need to know how to disable add ons, ask here.

Add-ons? Do you guys have anti-virus?

These need to be clearly specified
