Re: What is a good, hopefully free, anti-virus that works with JAWS 17 and Windows 10?

I'm running Malware Byes Premium version 3.06 and can get reliable
information by tabbing from field to field from within the interface. To
date, I haven't had any threats detected, but I can access the various tabs
and dialogs in a reasonable manner.

Hi Maria,

Yes, it still updates, but you need to know how to turn off program
updating, so only the definitions update, but you need to be running the Pro
version to have the option to turn off program updating.
Take care.

So is MB 1.75 still updating then?

And MB 1.75 still remains the most accessible version, and still
works with the same database definitions as the later versions.

Hi Tim,

MWB 3.0 is not accessible. You can navigate it, but accessible it's
not. MWB 2.2 is accessible with a little practice.

Take care.

Hello Brian,

I greatly appreciate the feedback. Is Malware Bytes version 3
accessible? My paid license is an annual subscription, and I assume it
applies to both the current and any previous version of MB; I have been
running their version 1.75, since I was warned on this list that version 2
was not accessible. I have not tried Version 3. Please advise, and much
thanks!

Tim,

The current version of Windows Defender that comes with
Windows 10 is a perfectly serviceable and accessible (at least for the
moment) antivirus program. Depending on which version of Malwarebytes you
have a license for it may, or may not, be a straight antimalware program or
a combination antivirus-antimalware program. The folks at Malwarebytes are
claiming that version 3.0 "makes antivirus obsolete." Given their
reputation and what I would presume is their desire to keep it I'd have to
believe their marketing claims stand up in practice.
