Free Anti Virus

Hello ive just learnt that the anti virus system i use called: Avira, no longer updates for Wins 98SE. Does anyone else know of a free anti virus system, that is not a free trial period, that still updates for Wins 98SE. Any replies would be much appreciated thank you.

please be advised that after September 2008 avg7.5 will no longer support windows 98se; and avast MAY be heading towards a similar decision

those of us who have computers running this os will, I suggest, need to be 'considering their options 'for appropriate and compatible antivirus protection

you may also wish to know that adaware se 2006 (assuming you also have it on board as a spyware protection) will no longer support windows 98se and adaware 2007 will NOT run on this OS either

Avast! home also fine on W9X variants.

Avast! is excellent and also updates itself with written and verbal notices that it has done so.
