Zone Alarm updates for Win98 users

  Glen 19:42 27 Jul 06

I use Zone Alarm Free, and my present version is 6.1.744.001 and I use Windows 98 SE. When prompted, I downloaded a new version. When I tried to open it, I received a message on screen that due to Microsoft ending support for Win98, Win98 did not support the new version of Zone Alarm. Is this true, and do I have to continue forever with the 6.1.744.001 version? Do I have any alternative?
