Hi,

I just recieved this second-hand laptop and I'm trying to clean it of any viruses or "spy" programs. I'm not very computer savvy so I apologize in advance for any questions that may seem obvious. Firstly, I've read the "malware infection" page and downloaded and ran the programs a number of times. I just completed the online virus scan with no problems. However, I cannot download the "windows update" as I'm using Windows 98. The "homepage" will not open for me. As I don't know if this computer is still infected with anything, I completed a "HijackThis" scan and am hoping someone might be able to let me know if there's anything else I need to do? And: where can I download the windows update for Windows 98? Thanks for your time.

Deedee
