I used to have AVG, it works pretty well.

I went back to AVG, after a couple of years away, and things are fine.

Hi,
I have used it on my laptop for years now, and I've never had an issue with it. That's odd that it would do that. Maybe there was something else on your machine. On my newer desktop and laptop, I use Avast. The latest version seems pretty good. However, I be interested for other ideas. Something else that works better than Avast. Thanks, A

Just one caveat. I think my experience was fairly unique, but Essentials totally disabled the keyboard on my HP, running XP. It was so bad, I needed sighted assistance uninstalling it. I never tried to find out what happened; once was more than enough.

I would suggest Security Essentials from Microsoft but it does not work on Windows 8. alternately, Windows 8 does come with a modified version of MSE which is compatible with Windows 8 and is called Windows Defender.

Hi Everyone,

I am looking for a system image /backup and anti virus software
solution compatible with JAWS and Windows 8.
I have asked people who recommended Norton Ghost, but on investigation
it is not compatible with Windows 8.
Also, I have used Avast in the past for a anti virus solution, so I'm
just curious is there anything better?

I am seeking this information because I am purchasing a new laptop for
my Masters programme and I want to future proof it.

Any information /suggestions are very welcome.

Kind regards,

Niall
