You aren't exposed to a significant extent if you turn the software off and

malware these days, you are taking a certain amount of risk but if you use
an ad blocker, that risk is greatly reduced. I don't know if it is
eliminated. I would think that for testing, if you go to a site where
nothing has been flagged, you should be quite safe. If you have been using
a site regularly for weeks, months or longer and you test with this site,
while there is no guarantee, but even without an ad blocker, the odds of
something malicious being placed on the site by hacked advertising just when
you decide to test are low.

Reasonable prudence is one thing. "Fear itself" is another.

Which would essentially leave him on the net exposed to every piece of
malware known to hackerdom. I'm thinking perhaps not?

Brennen, there is an awful lot you don't tell us, ie, what version of
Windows you're using, what browser you're using, whether you've
optimized your computer for use by blind individuals, including
browser accessibility settings, and whether or not your version of
NVDA is portable or a standard installation.

I would suggest also viewing your event logs under control panel >
administrative tools, both in terms of systems & application logs as
well as your NVDA log to see if any errors are shown.

You could just stop all the Sophos services if you're a local admin.

The following command would do it:

wmic service where "caption like '%Sophos%'" call stopservice

Note: Change stopservice to startservice to start them back up.

That may well be the problem. You may like to try an alternative or
temporarily disable it, seeing if the problem is eleviated.

These can play havoc with keyboard mappings and NVDA.

yah sorry i don’t do so well talking about problems through email
yes the problem occurs with every shortcut key in brows mode and it
seems to do just about every other action but the action it supposed

the tool Brian is refering to if it is the same bug i think it
grab a copy of nvda 2018.2 rc2 and download it and install it to

computer. Then while nvda is running use the nvda key + letter N to
into the preferences of nvda then go to tools a sub menu will come
it then locate the following menu called Run COM Registration

tool... then press the enter key.

I am not sure after that but after the process should register any
broken dlls that nvda needs to use.

let us know if it does the trick.

By the way after you press the enter key on it the menu e pointed

towards i am not sure if there are any thing or screen after that

Out of curiosity do you hear sounds or hear browse mode and
when you go between those modes?

if it is the sound one i think you hear a letter sound and when
you are
out of focus mode you hear another sound.

if you want to hear them spoken have a look under the browse
settings and uncheck the following box called Audio indication
and browse modes

then save your settings.

If you tab a couple of times do you hear unknown or pane?

Do you also hear it under say the running applications part on
and it is not speaking the icons down there and some other stuff

By the way which version of nvda are you running? did you
latest nvda 2018.2 rc2 version if so there is a tool in this
version of
nvda that might fix it.

If you are not really getting that stuff then we can sus some
thing else
out and maybe narrow it a little.
