Re: [Tec Talk] Does anyone know how to remove Avast from your PC

Leigh Winfield
 

                Hi Tim, removing that darned Avast is something we need sighted help for.  If you contact the Microsoft help desk they can do it for you.  There are some software’s that are just not compatible for blind users.

Good luck.  LAW

Hi Shirley,

Go to Google and type

Avast Uninstall Utility | Download aswClear for Avast Removal

To download the Avast! Removal utility. That’s how I did it when I uninstalled it from my Windows 7.

Kind regards

Hopefully, it will continue until the issue is solved or an alternative is found.
In the meantime, you can use your delete key at no extra cost.
And, as Gene pointed out, you can mute the mute subject link.

Re: Does anyone know how to remove Avast from your PC

Gene
 

You can do that but on the Avast site, they say to try using the regular uninstall method, add/Remove programs first.

If you run Add/Remove programs in the usual way, you will get to a point where you lose speech during the installation process. Press space and you should get speech back. I don't know if it matters, but to avoid moving without speech, do something after every step in the procedure, such as reading the title bar. You are dealing with a nonspeaking are you sure dialog. its been years since I've removed Avast sso I can't give you more details.

Of course, you can try the uninstall utility first but it may be more trouble and inconvenience. You may have to run it in safe mode.

Wake, Reboot and Sleep Tasks

Mike B
 

Hi All,
 
Running Windows 7 pro on a desktop computer.  At our other house I have this Windows 7 computer using wake, reboot and sleep tasks.  Meaning on each Saturday the tasks wake the computer up at 7:00 am, reboot it at 2:00 PM and put it back to sleep at 10:00 PM.  When each of these tasks are performed a batch file puts a text file in my Dropbox letting me know these tasks were performed, and these text files I receive in my Dropbox at another house.
 
Well anyways, all these tasks quit working for an unknown reason and the big one is the, Wake, task, it just won't wake up the system from sleep mode. It works fine when the system is up and running,
but not otherwise.
 
Can anyone give me some pointers on a setting or anything that might be causing the task or tasks not to function like they used to?!  All help will be greatly appreciated and graciously accepted.  Thank y'll very much for any input.

 
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Good Morning Margaret,
 
Well, I believe we're going to start your day off with some good news!  I found a website with a universal driver for your HP laser Jet 1012.  The website URL and download link are below.  There are both 32 & 64 bit drivers in the zipped folder so make sure your printer is either 32 or 64 bit.
 
Website:

Sure hopes this works for you!

Hi Chris,

I need more information about this Laser printer issue. You own a Xerox Work Center 3210. I don't see that on Amazon now. I do see something called a 3335 Work Center Mona chrome blue/white or black/white. I am not sure quite what this means. Does it mean that this is essentially a black/white printer only? Would the blue/white mean that the text would be in blue rather than black? I can't determine whether the 3335 version is touch screen or has buttons. The description doesn't say. With touch screen printers, is there an app of some sort--any voice support? I get not.

Thanks for any help.

Re: windows safe mode

Smiling?
 

It depends on your OS whether or not JAWS will work because with Windows7 (using some registry files) JAWS would work while in Safe Mode, but this unfortunately does not seem to be the case using Windows10. Microsoft claims that Narrator will work while in Safe Mode in a video on YouTube, but others say that it is not true and that Narrator will not successfully work within Safe Mode.

 

As far as getting into Safe Mode.

 

BootSafe is something that you may want to look in to (description and URL to download below).

 

BootSafe - Download:

https://bootsafe.en.softonic.com/#tab-review

 

* This is the description I spoke of above.

 

From: 

Brian Vogel

 

After all the discussion of getting sound in Safe Mode, it would probably help to discuss actually booting

into it.

 

I have earlier talked about using MSCONFIG or bcdedit methods for doing this, but both have the

disadvantage of making that boot sequence "permanent" if you don't undo the change while you're in

Safe Mode.

 

Someone on Bleeping Computer just pointed me to a freeware utility, BootSafe, that fills the bill

perfectly to allow you to either directly restart and boot into Safe Mode a single time, or to stage things

such that when you choose to Restart next that you'll boot into Safe Mode. It's also 100% accessible

with NVDA.

 

The program runs as a portable program from any non-networked drive (that means copy it somewhere

on a disc drive that's internal to your machine). The only big proviso is that you must not remove the

program or move it from its location after you've used it to stage a Safe Boot on next Restart. Once

you've gone to Safe Mode, and then later rebooted into regular Windows, you can safely remove it

then.

 

The options, for anyone used to using Safe Mode or looking to use Safe Mode, are self explanatory. All

are controlled by radio buttons and as you move among the 4 options the radio button is automatically

selected. The default is Safe Mode, Minimal, which means without networking. You want to down arrow

once to get to the Safe Mode with Networking option. After that you simply tab to one of two buttons:

 

list of 2 items

1. Configure only (no restart) - which sets the stage for the machine to enter Safe Mode

when you next choose to Restart it or Cold Boot from complete shutdown.

2. Restart Windows - which instantly begins the Restart process, so close out your programs before

hitting this to save your data, and boots straight into Safe Mode. list end

 

If you change your mind after having fired up the program, and have not yet activated either of those

two buttons, simply close the program.

Hi Gerald,

I understand that Narrator for Windows 10 does although I haven’t tried it myself. When I did the removal on my Windows 7, I used the assistance of Be My Eyes. A helpful lady all the way from Finland told me where to move the mouse to click “Remove”. Not having used a mouse in all my eleven years of PC usage, it was an awesome experience to me.

 

Tim.

Unfortunately, JAWS does not provide speech when booting into safe mode.  You will need sighted help to do this.

Hi Shirley,

Go to Google and type

Avast Uninstall Utility | Download aswClear for Avast Removal

To download the Avast! Removal utility. That’s how I did it when I uninstalled it from my Windows 7.

Kind regards

Tim.

Re: Security Essentials question

Jacob
 

It works that way i MSE. MSE will install the definitions updates automatically. There are 2 ways to search for updates manually. With in the MSE interface or in Windows Update. But again they'll be installed and therefore no need to search for them unless you want them a littlle faster than the scheduled definition updates. I don't know exactly how many times a day MSE checks for updates.

HI,
 
Does anyone know why my Security Essentials updates are showing up in optional updates rather than important updates like Defender does? I have to check for definition updates rather than have them show up on their own.
 
Do I need to change a setting?
