AVG 7.5 and Windows 98?

  palinka 12:23 04 Mar 2007

my sister uses win 98. She ran AVG 7.1 but she's run into problems installing AVG 7.5 - gets into an endless loop that keeps taking her back tio a "Welcome" screen. She seems to have installed it on desktop, not in C drive, which is perhaps adding to the problems. I've suggested uninstallign and downloading a fresh copy, but it won't uninstall. Meanwhile she's downloading a fresh copy and will SAVE it to the desktop and await instructiosn from me.
Is it a win 98 problem?

Is it 98 or 98SE?

According to the manual click here it will run on 98SE.

I just installed 7.5 on my W98se yesterday and it's working fine. P.

since starting this thread i've talked to her again and she says she gets a message saying "...7.5 needs Win 2000 or above..."

Silly question but has she downloaded AVG Antispyware 7.5 (which requires Win 2000 or XP) in error instead of AVG AV Free 7.5 click here

You may be right,VoG™. I asked her to read to me what she saw on her monitor, and I dimly rememebr hearing "antispy..".. Thanks fro that; i'll phone her and check.

Yers, it looks as though she did download the "..antispy.." instead of "...AV....". Just phoned her again and given step by step info (again) on how to download AV to desktop. Keeping my fingers crossed.
