Just remember that the USA tried to arrest the one person who thwarted the ransom ware attack recently as he had been seen on shady bits of the web. After all, its only by using contacts on what the media call the dark web, that often a way to fight back can be found in a timely manner.

Gosh, sounds like when in Italy priests told the people that communists
ate children! ROFL!

Kaspersky is quite good, in fact. Only a bit cumbersome, if anything.

Ciao,

Hi Quentin and Group,


Be ware of Kapersky! It was all over the mainstream media that
Kaspersky is from a Russian company and it may pose a threat. Some
businesses and supposedly the NSA are worried that Kaspersky could
contain Trojans or Key loggers.

I must admit, on Windows 10, I also use the built in Defender from
Microsoft. This question does come up regularly though, so here are
my notes from the last round of conversations on this earlier this year:

There are several anti-virus programs which are accessible with NVDA
and some which are partly accessible:

Windows Defender comes with Windows 10 from Microsoft and is accessible.

One user, David Goldfield, has written a comprehensive review of
Kaspersky Anti-Virus:

<https://davidgoldfield.wordpress.com/2016/11/16/kaspersky-antivirus-a-review-for-screen-reader-users/>

Another user, Gene, has put together a whole site of information and
suggestions, including for anti-virus:

Sonos is another anti-virus which has been recommended by some of our
users: https://www.sophos.com/lp/sophos-home.aspx

If anyone checks those and finds the information out of date, or has
others to add, please do chime in!

Kind regards

Quentin.

MS Defender is sufficient. I have not had a virus for over 22

Too much hype out there...
