I have an old pc I am messing with. It's a gateway with windows 98.

The harddrive was formated. When reinstalling win 98 with the disk.

I get this.

Disable the anti-virus feature in your computer's CMOS settings.

Then contine to install win 98.

How do I Disable the anti-virus feature in your computer's CMOS settings ?

You have to go into Setup. On older machines it's usually by pressing the del or F1 key during bootup. The screen may tell you how. Then go to Standard CMOS settings and disable the virus protection. Look at the bottom of the setup screen for navigation information.
