Hi,

I am having a problem finding a general antivirus program that will still work with windows 98. Especially a free one. AVG, Ad-Aware, McAfee, and Norton don't work. Spybot does but I need something more general to find viruses.

Do you know of one that I can use?

Is it free?

Thanks,

I downloaded it and it scanned and found 12 results. But it said there was an error in repairing or deleting the results. Should I uninstall and reinstall? Can't viruses mess up or target your anti-virus programs?

Thanks for the quick response last time...I appreciate.

No. Sometimes AV program is not able to remove some infection(s).
Your best bet...

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
