Firewall & Antispyware for Windows ME

  SallyC 14:06 19 Dec 2010

I have just downloaded Clamwin antivirus software on a Compaq Presario notebook with windows ME O/S installed. Can anyone please suggest firewall & antispyware software that would be suitable for this O/S as Comodo (the firewall installed on our other laptops) does not give ME as an option. Would also be grateful if anyone could tell me where I can find the ME equivalent to XPs Security Centre - can't find it anywhere
Many thanks

Thanks Terry - I tried to download ZoneAlarm but it came up with an error message -
Could not load the DLL library C\Windows\Temp\12190145714\CertCheck.dll. A device attached to the system is not functioning. Any ideas? I did try the others but the links were either obsolete or had upgraded to newer windows O/S.

Sorry I24 - I don't know what 'non resident right' means, could you explain? Should I be using something different? I usually use AVG free but can't find a link to a previous version to 2011 which doesn't seem very popular!

Many thanks I24 for the information & links - have now successfully installed Avast! and Kerio - now just need a spyware program now - I tried to install super antispyware v4.24 - FAQ said it was compatible but it isn't as it came up with an error message of needing a newer windows o/s. Any suggestions gratefully received!

For spyware, this program is tried and tested click here
also Adaware, you may need to load an older version to be compatible with ME click here

Thanks everyone - slow process but successfully loaded Avast!, Kerio firewall and an old version of Spybot. Now I just need the software discs from the seller and I can try to load Windows 2000 instead.
