    Need free AV for Win 98SE?

    I am having an old laptop running on Win98SE and i wanted to know if there is any free Anti Virus program which i can install on it. I have tried installing AVG 7.X and 8 but they doesn't seem to be supported.

    In that case you can check out Avast, it is supported by Win 98SE. I have some friends using it without any complains.

    Yes Avast is supported by Win 98SE, i have been using it in my laptop running on 98SE from a couple of weeks and it works great. I dont know for what reason AVG version 8 support has been discontinued for 98. I would have prefer avg over avast if it would have been supported.

    Why dont you check out NOD32. It is supported by Win98 and on the other hand its very low on resources. I think NOD32 will be best choice for Win98, Avast and avg are good but they will eat up your system resource while carrying out scan. Since you have mentioned that you are having an old laptop it might be low configured, correct me if i am wrong.

    Sometimes a free version is a wrong one. So that i preffer to buy; first i had avast, a free version, and it took more space and it was very irritating. That's why a friend gave me a link with a program that helps me a lot. Look at this site, please and maybe you 'll say i'm right http://www.trustdownload.com/Antivir...urity-7.0.html
