Also, if, as has been said, the
files are mostly spyware, while you might get better
protection using another antivirus program, you should also
add the paid version of Malware Bytes if your wife goes to
sites and does things that expose her to malware other than
viruses. But what your wife does to infect her computer would
be useful to discuss. Someone who takes good care to follow
safe practices should not be infected with anything serious at
all often. We don't know what your wife is infected with but
if she if often infected with more than trivial things like
tracking cookies, then she is doing things that open her to
infection and that should be discussed.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Kaspersky antivirus, how
Brian Gaff offered, "I
wonder if one of the issues is that she is just not being careful enough. Sooner
or later if you do not take care, you will get something nasty, no matter what
security you have on a machine you know."
And without any hesitation I
second this idea, and it has nothing to do with whether one is
blind or not.
The subject of infections and
"things being missed" comes up endlessly on forums, and most
tech geeks say exactly what Mr. Gaff has said in one way or
another. I have done the same recently, twice, on the JFW
Group. For anyone who might be interested the posts are, Recommendations for anti-virus,
and, Forums Question & possible change
request. If you do not engage in good
"browsing hygiene" you will get infected, period. There is no
way for antivirus, antimalware, and antispyware programs to be
100% up to date and 100% effective 100% of the time.
