One of the best anti malware programs is A-Squared click here. It's about 16M though so you will need a broadband connection to download it.

click here for WinCleaner AntiSpyware, which offers realtime protection to W98 systems, well worth trying if you have an older OS.

Most anti virus/spyware ect is still compatible with 98, firewalls however will no longer be supported because Microsoft halted support for 98,98SE err and I think ME in June 2006.

[b]AVG[/b] gives all round cover
[b]SpyBot[/b] is good for spyware/trojans
[b]ADAWARE[/b] SE is cool also.

are you still out there or has your computer now crashed from being infected and unprotected?

"firewalls however will no longer be supported because Microsoft halted support"

Fortunately there are a few W9X compatible firewalls still with manufacturers support click here .
