are you not able to run SAS or update or run a scan after you get that mesage about searching for newer windows version
and a lot of the changes in there have to do with dealing with rootkits. Rootkits can only be run on harddrives formatted to NTSF (NT-based systems), 98--or the range of 9x/ME can not be formatted to NTSF so that is something you don't have to worry about. A lot of malware out there will only run on NT-based systems as well, so in a way 98 and it's predecessor's are more secure than the now more popular operating systems. You still need to protect the system, but from threats on a lower level technology-wise.
Do I understand from these comments that SAS is not compatible with the 98SE OS? It is a FAT 32 system ( which I confess means nto a lot to/for me
I think the newer SAS versions have changed ;the older ones WERE runnable on the computer;
I wonder if anyone has a link TO an older version as I so far have been unable to locate one so I can update its definitions but NOT the SAS version itself and thus give SOME protection
