Re: McAfee Antivirus does not work with NVDA


 

I tried sophos home but because of those false positives, the program went through my drive and other things and deleted everything that was bad.

As you can imagine, I had a nice long load of errors, reinstalling several programs, a reformat so windows would stop saying errors at me, etc.

I have come to the conclusion that security software doesn't like any disabled people or at least not blind gamers like myself.

I like windows defender because I can control it without losing to much and if I do its easy to fix.

That's not surprising.  Increasing numbers of antivirus programs don't work with screen-readers.  It may work with JAWS; you might want to try JAWS to see but I'm far from optimistic.

If you are using Windows 10, Windows Defender is highly rated and well thought of.  If Malware Bytes is still accessible, you may want to use that as well.

Hello there,


It looks as though the new McAffee antivirus doesn't work with N'Vda.
It simply says:  "Chrome:  Cannot read old Chrome."
