FW for the orphaned Win98-ME user
« on: August 20, 2006, 08:52:06 PM »
Hello malware fighters,

Those still on Windows 98 SE and ME or on  the Unofficial SP updates of those orphaned systems lack support for ZA Free, there is an alternative for you: Filseclab free for home users.

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

I believe that ZA will stop support for these systems after a certain version of ZA.
However, some older version work just fine and unless there is a flaw in the program itself,
updates aren't really needed in a firewall program.
