Re: win7 security

 

Weird, the only thing I noticed was that yesterday's update for defs was majorly delayed yesterday, thats also fixed as of today, so I suspect a corrupted update file was inadvertantly released.

It was likely a false alarm.  Have you rebooted since?  If you reboot and you get no such message, it is very unlikely anything to worry about.  if you reboot and do get such a message, what screen-reader are you using?  I suspect the message also said something like click here to address the problem.

However, if you want to check your security settings before doing any of this, do the following:
Open the start menu.  Type the word security.
Then after a moment, read the current line.  If it isn't what you want, look through many of the options.  Down arrow through them. If you find what you want, press enter.

You will find what you want, as one of the items says chec security status. I just checked.

One of the main improvements in Windows 7 is that you don't have to look for things as you did in XP.  Use the start menu search and you'll fined most things, even if you don't know what they are called.  The start menu search is designed to find things when the technical or exact words aren't used. for example, use the start menu search to search for uninstall programs or uninstall a program.  You will find relevant results even though you didn't use the technical name.  I don't remember it any more.  But you will find entries in plain English such as remove a program.

This is important to know not only for Windows 7 but, though I haven't checked because I haven't used higher versions of Windows, I'm sure they all have this feature.

HI folks,



Yesterday I  got a popup on my win 7 machine saying windows security was turned off.  Don't think I've heard that in all the years I have had this pc.

Where do I look to find status of win security.

Thanks,

Re: How to tell NVDA which ONeCore voice shoud be used with language switching

bering.p
 

Hello Sylvie,
I'm afraid that this is not possible today.
NVDA is looking in an ordered list to the voice that matches the language and stops at the first voice found.
I'll see if I can do something in my module.

Paul.

Le 19/03/2019 10:52, Sylvie Duchateau a écrit :
Hello all,

I have several voices in several languages installed on Windows as
OneCore voices.

By default, I use a French male voice, Paul.

For English, I have several voices: Hazel, Mark, Susan, Zira, David, George.

I have activated language switching and dialect switching in the speech
options.

So when I come on a web page, let's say, nvaccess.org, Mark is speaking.

If I want that NVAccess web site should be read with Hazer or Susan, is
there a way to tell him to do so without using a specific profile?

Same question, if I am on a page that is written in French and English,
I would rather have the language changes read by Hazer instead of Mark
and that NVDA then returns to the French speaking Paul.

Thank you for your help.

Best

Sylvie

Hi.

I do suspect that it could be a corrupt file, usually windows defender gets updates immediately.

While last nights one came out just fine, the one for this morning which usually is there when I turn on the system did not appear till 9am local time.

That could be why it was late, though it did appear.

I had exactly the same I took it back a day. I'm guessing an update to it was corrupted. It happens after a scan and says sorry the service was turned off, turn iton now, and you do and its on but next scan fails again.
I in fact only changed the registry to the one two days ago, not the whole thing then did a backup.
I'm awaiting to see if the same thing comes back when msse updates again.

Re: win7 security

If you are using the english version of Windows 7 and you type something like uninstall a program or remove a program or remove programs, you will find relevant results when you type some or all of these things.  I can't say that all those searches will find relevant results but if you type what you want to do, you will often or usually find results.  You may find a result that says programs and features.  You may find a result that says something like remove a program or uninstall a program.  They all lead to the same place.

Re: win7 security

 

You probably got this because windows started out of sequence for some reason, and things.

Usually I would just reboot again if you were concerned, but to be honest things say they don't work and come back after a while simply because were not loaded at the time then resolves.
