  1. Currently using window 98 SE with just 64mb ram an old pc.It's infected with malware and virus as I assume.I had ask a few which they suggest me to install a firewall to prevent an infection again when goes online.

    The problem I am facing right now , which firewall can support window 98 SE with 64mb of ram ?
    A simple firewall will do more than enough to just block unwanted connection so with those virus and malware.

    Please recommand me

    Thank You for your support :)

    Go to or here
    Find the section for Internet Tools or Search for Firewalls.
    Theres lots of free choices.
    But this may not solve all your problem(s)

    Thank a lot , right now the biggest concern is deleting the virus manually.Having just 64mb ram , I am pretty sure not even one antivirus can run and scan it.
    If anyone knows an antivirus which will run on window 98 SE with 64mb ram please let me know.

    Thank you :)
