A pole? what have you against poles?
grin.
Seriously though, AVG used to make all the right noises, but never really got their act together and now they aare part of avast with their draconian protection mode, I'd suspect all bets are off.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Anti Virus Program


The issue I had was the same with another blogger I work with.

With the limited contact info, the support and non responce from security software manufacturers we can probably assume that they don't care about access or wish it, and don't care about specialised software for us either or anything.

So its a hope and see if it will work.

Windows defender being mssee, maybe, but find an alternitive please that works, is accessable, has good support and doesn't become bad at the drop of a hat and have less false positives and you may as well kiss a pole.

Sad but true.

I said efficient, not good or perfect. I do nnot want to debate about the good or bad of one anti-virus program above the other. I am just speaking from my personal observation which no one is forced to take on board. I use Windows defender, my pc is protected against threats, that's good enough for me.

On that note, what steps can we do to reduce false positives exactly.

Issue, just about every blind related thing bgt excluded since that can't be helped as such because of its design is being flagged as a virus, excluding things does help, but there are old vb6 programs saying this, is there anything say a user can do, ie create an exclude list of things they can share, or have some dictionary of programs or something one could upload somewhere, there are just so many false alarms.

Hi. Windows defender is efficient enough these days. Avg has no accessible value, at least not to my knowledge. Cheers!

tried free version of AVG. Setup was difficult and I was not able to control anything the program did after installation.

Is there anything better I could try?
