Macafee antivirus download crashes computer

I use virusScan with windows 98. The last two occasion I have downloaded an upgrade my computer has crached and I have had to run scandisk et al to get it working. I also use Norton utilities to keep things in order, they don't seem to like each other as I note the optimisation wirard turns virusscan off.

Any ideas wht might be causing it? I suspect a conflict somewhere but don't know where.

How does virusscan compare with AVG any comments?

Macafee annoys the life out of me by trying to get me to buy it despite the fact that i have and duly registered it.
