Check through the Frequently Asked Questions at the link below.

Or if you cannot find your answer there, try browsing through (or even posting to) the Online Bible forum at the link below.

Antivirus warning:

The following notice appears as you install upgrades:

Norton, McAfee, Trend Micro Systems, Zone Alarm, Kaspersky or other ativirus programs may prevent The Online Bible from installing correctly. If you encounter problems, reboot the computer in SAFE MODE (press F8 during reboot) and install The Online Bible. After the program is installed, reboot and The Online Bible should work with your antivirus software.

If running Windows 7 or Vista, you should download the free Microsoft Security Essentials and for maximum protection run all programs from a STANDARD USER ACCOUNT. Avoid using an ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT for your normal user account.
