Hi :),

Im sorry that your OS wont be supported man,

I know there are alternatives for Win98 but i dont know anything free (except for Clamwin but that aint the best thing)

i know that NOD32 has a Windows 98 AV

But i read now its supported till 2010, maybe there is a other alternative at that time :).


GL with it!

For everyone who say that Windows 98 has relevant marketshare: it's not true:
http://marketshare.hitslink.com/report.aspx?qprid=10&qptimeframe=M&qpsp=124
It' only 0.1x %!

Windows 9x PCs should not browse in the web for security reasons. For offline PCs there are no virusscanner needed.

There are a lot of free NOD's :P,

But normally NOD isnt free   :P

i think its real time hines, maybe you can a trial nod32 if Avast doesnt support Win 98 anymore.

NOD32 for Microsoft Windows (on-demand scanner)

Is this what we could start to use then for the older systems, if so where do we get it?

Oh I see, here perhaps.....

http://www.eset.com/products/nod32.php

I wonder if this product has a time limitation, in other words how long can it be used for.

Thanks

Edit,

Confused now, it doesn't mention windows 98.

The link posted at reply 31 provides product information for the version that works with 95/98. There is no "download this" on that page. There is no indication it's free.
The way I see it, you'd perhaps have to copy the link, and email Eset (click on the "store" page, which redirects you to your local Eset site, then "purchase", then "contact us") with a product inquiry, perhaps including the copied link.
