Can anyone tell where to find anti-spyware software for Windows 95?

Both Norton and McAfee only support W98 and higher.

Spybot is questionable and I'm not sure I want to try it unless I'm sure.
What is everybody else using?

Also my Norton Anti Virus subscription has expired on my W95 also, and I
don't think they support that product any longer as well. Any thought on
this would also be appreciated.

Thank you

Tony

Avast antivirus (free from www.avast.com) still works on Windows 95
but really puts a heavy load on the CPU.

Not sure about spyware products. AdAware SE also has problems with
Windows 95 I believe.

Good luck

Hi I'm not sure why you think Spybot is questionable, do you mean
questionable effectiveness or questionable compatibility with W95? For Anti
Virus you could try Antivir http://www.free-av.com/ and Housecall
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ .
