Anti Virus for Win 98SE

  john bunyan 19:44 01 Mar 09

My old laptop is still on Win 98SE. I had AVG 7.5, but today, stupidly, I downloaded AVG 8 Free, Uninstalled version 7.5, then at the end of a long installation was told that AVG 8 does not work with Win 9x. Can (Skidzy or others) someone suggest an anti virus free that works with Win 98SE? I cant find a way to get AVG 7.5 back, as there is no restore point in Win 98SE.

Avast is better, and they are compatible with Win98 (even back down to Win95) in their latest version, which has to be a plus point.

Thanks - will have a look. Up to now I have used AVG 8 on my desktop, so have got to know it, my criticism is that in the last month I have had two bouts of false positives, which caused difficulties. I may try Avast on the laptop with a view to switchin both to it.

Will vouch DieSse's recommendation of Avast Home.
