I used to use Nod32 myself, but I found that I couldn't work with the latest version at all with NVDA, and I wasn't all that comfortable with the idea of staying a few versions behind just for basic accessibility. Plus, it nagged me all the damn time to upgrade to the latest version. So, I decided that when I bought my new computer, I'd give Windows Defender a try. I figured that if something went wrong, I know how to format my system/keep current backups/get myself out of any horrible situation that might arise. I haven't kept up with the latest AV test results, so was unaware that it had been scoring higher than before in recent months, but it adds up. I'm pretty happy with it. I do keep Malwarebytes and Clamwin around as backups, though. I don't think it hurts to have a backup plan inside of another backup plan.

Where can one find this Kaspersky add-on, though? I wasn't aware that it existed. I don't plan to purchase another antivirus for myself soon, but it would be nice to have in case someone else I know wants to try it. It's definitely not an official add-on; I've never seen it listed on NVDA's website.

Hmm. Now I'm curious. I'll have to mess with NOD32 with NVDA at some point. My primary reader is JAWS.

That would make sense. When I had Smart Security, I was primarily a JAWS user. It worked well then. I later switched to NVDA, and around that time I let my subscription to Smart Security expire, because NVDA was pretty useless in the settings dialogs. After a frustrating almost two years using Vipre, in which I swore I would never use it again regardless of it being the most accessible paid solution out there, I decided to try Nod32. I had relaxed my standards a bit along the way and decided that Smart Security was no longer a good fit for me, but I did trust Eset's reputation, so I decided to go with Nod32. Unfortunately, I was rather let down with NVDA's performance in the application, as I said. Using version 8 mitigated the worst of the issues, but, as I said, I don't really feel that using an older version of an antivirus is a good idea.

question for anyone using windows defender, am I the only problem who has trouble actually viewing what threats it's found? like, in scan history I can see what it think it is, but not the location, not the name, etc
when I click on see details, it just closes the window and I get nothing

ESET Super? That sounds a little strange.

Anyway, to get the version number of NOD32, go to update. It should say installed version and the version number somewhere in the window and give you the option to check for a newer version. The version number is also displayed in the system tray along with the version of the virus signature database.
