I try to install the free avira antivirus software to my computer, the os is win2x professional with service pack 4 and a pentium 4 1.8 GHz cpu. The setup file say it cannot proceed because the software is not a correct win32 application. Can anyone tell me what's the problem and the ways to solve it. Thanks.
