Yea believe it or not, some people just want to keep ME running, so which Antivirus do you use with ME? I'm looking for a free one if possible. We usually give them an option of AVG Free or Buy NOD32.

I would look into getting Windows 98SE put on that machine becuase no Anti-Virus can protect agianst its host. Im not as down on Vista as most these people are as it is making progress but ME well it never went anywhere good. I would go with anything Win 98 compatible and well rated should work as well as anything else on ME.

I agree with Blues, Try to talk them into getting something else. ME is a nightmare to use and work on and it will cost them more in the long run to keep paying to get it fixed.

Yea guys, I know about ME sucking. Already tried to get them to upgrade, but some people don't want to. And thats fine, we give our opinions and move on. Now, for those that know which AV works fine with ME, I'd appreciate your input.

What's wrong with NOD32? It should work fine.

I really like Avast over AVG, as far as a free antivirus goes. I just checked, it does support 95, 98 and Me, though admittedly, I've never installed it on anything that old.

AVG does work well on 98 but when I last checked they stopped support old Windows 98 but I think they still have it available.

AVG Free will run on ME jst fine, probably one of the smallest footprint AV's out there.
