I’m helping a friend installing and setting up Windows 7. As I have no experience with Windows, I wonder which antivirus software (real-time protection) I should install.
- It must be gratis.
- It needs to be compatible with screen readers. While I expect that most tools should comply here, there might be some tools that try to be smart and implement their own menu (not using Windows APIs), which (if done wrong) can’t be accessed by screen readers.
- There should be no advertisement pop-ups (AFAIK the gratis version of Avira AntiVir had those, at least on Windows XP). Other kind of advertisement is okay.
- Updates should happen automatically (preferably in the background), without requiring user interaction.
