  1. I'd like to ask if there's still any new antivirus software(free is good) that still supports windows9x. I have a Windows 98 machine with no internet connection and my only option is to download the software from another machine, and put it into CD...


    Help...

    AVG from www.grisoft.com
    Free and works like a charm. You have to register to get a serial no. Other than that, no nagging or ads or any other hassle.

    Really, if you have no internet connection, you have limited use for AV. Most current viruses don't do much damage, and mostly just spread.

    You might want to see if there's an abandonware fprot out there or something (old dos day av.)

    Unless you have mission critical files... AV probably would just serve as a resource hog.

    F-Prot for DOS is alive and kicking. It is also free and will work fine under Win 9x (no realtime scanning tho, but that won't matter if you don't have internet connection). www.f-prot.com
