Time to buy new protection. Running NAV 2003, which I upgraded online to 2004. Now here it is, 2006.

Looking for thoughts on what to buy for home PC (IBM Thinkpad/Win98), used for email, shopping, research, general time-wasting.

Any thoughts on what to buy? Where to buy cheapest??

I am a big fan of AVG Free...and yes its free :thumbsup:

Other great AV software is kapersky, nod32, but am not 100% sure they will work on 98 or not.

Hi DebMarieGreene

If you are going to buy ,I recommend Panda AV

If you want free I recommend Avast as many folk in this forum use it. and there are a few other good choices here in this Bleepingcomputer article: See the 3rd pinned item Virus and Malware Resources.
There is also a
Tutorial to remoe Norton: see first pinned.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

My advice is not necessarily right though :thumbsup: AV software is very much a personal preference
