Windows 98 and Antivirus needed

  Baskerville 09:47 14 Jun 2007

Hi All,

have an old computer that is working fine, just lately my AVG free edition has somehow got corrupted or something has stopped it working.

I uninstalled it and tried again to get a free edition from AVG but it says it does not support Win 98, I tried Avast and for one reason or other this will not run on my computer so I now have no Antivirus at all, is there a browser out there that I can download with protection built in ? or any other AVirus that is free to download?

Thanks for any help,

Sorry folks it's Windows ME I have, not 98,

I'll go and crawl under a stone.
