Hello a few weeks back my monitor broke down and i had to get a new one. The old monitor somehow affected my software and ive just had to reinstall everything again. I manage to install my antivirus, Sygate firewall and Spybot S&D. But i cant seem to find the Lavasoft Adware i used for my type of Windows which is Wins 98SE. And also it seems i cant d/load the updates for this windows from Microsoft now, i did manage to d/load the IE 6 from the site. One thing do i need Adware if im using Spybot? If so can someone lead me to a free site or the older version of Lavasoft, hope to from someone soon thanks.

Hello thank you for your prompt replies. Just two things i need to ask. If you have Spybot do you still need to have Adware installed as well - are they two different things? And also is it alright to install the Wins 98SE Service Pk2 if you havent installed the first one? Hope to hear from you soon thanks.

Not entirely sure about SP2 for 98se but i would asume you would need to install SP1 first.

As for Spybot and adaware they work happily together
and one will always find what the other does not so keep them both...

As far as I know the 'SP2' pack includes all updates.

Hello thanks for explaining about the Adware and Spybot. But i seem to have problems d/loading the Wins 98SE updates from the site you gave me. There seems to be two d/loading mirrors one from USA and the other from Romania. When i d/load from the Romanian one it says it will take about 2 hrs. The USA one says about 1 hr, but when i do it it starts alright then it suddenly finishes leaving a blue exe file in my folder then when i try to open it it says something about error and no contact etc. In other words theres no proper setup zip file that one usually gets. Ive tried it twice and it still wont work. If ive done anything wrong let me know otherwise tell me if theres any other sites i can d/load it from thanks.
