Check out the listing here:

The four listed are all compatible with Windows 98, but check the system requirements to be sure. And remember you should only have one antivirus running at a time.

AVG will work with W98.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

AVG is a very good choice.
If I may ask what processor and how much RAM do you have?

I am under the impression that AVG will work with windows that are not any older than 2000. I have an intel processor with 224megs of RAM

Avg Free Edition will work with Windows 95 or newer and as old as a 486 processor.
I am sorry I was not precise. I meant what speed processor do you have?
Although you will need a patch to make it run on Windows 95.
