Yes I've used AVG on my Win98SE for the last six months without any problems. In fact it far better than the McAfee 6.0 I used to run. It found a virus in a zip file that I've used for years. But I never executed the exe, never needed to.Off Topic
On Saturday I installed WinME. It installed in no problem but wouldn't run for the first time. It came up with a Browsei.dll error, it suggested a restart to clear the error. Everytime I rstarted I got the same error, as soon as you click on the desktop. I was impressed so Win98 when back. On Sunday I thought I would give it ome more go. It went in and ran ok apart from the occational Rundll error when it needs to restart. But AVG runs fine as it did on Win98.
Anyway I've always download my AVG from FileHippo
as well as other useful software. There are loads of versions you can choose from. I download the newest version last week.
People say Win98 is an old OS and not very stable. Yes its old but I've always found it stable apart from IE6.0 crashing occationally. But thats a software problem not an OS problem. I bought WinXP a 3 years ago. Installed it no problem, tried it for a week, didn't like it so Win98 went back. I tried to put WinXP in a year ago but it would even start the installation only the DOS blue screen of death. Nothing as changed on my comp since the first time. I've posted this problem in the WinXP forum but no one could help.
