Do you guys know where I can download a free but good antivirus
program for my Win98 that will protect my computer against viruses?

Thanks.

I've been using avast! for a couple of months, used to use eTrust but
they wouldn't honor their agreed upon renewal fee. Screw 'em,

So far, I like avast! better than eTrust. Easy to use, updates easily.
You would want the "Home Edition"

I am currently using the free version of AVAST and am very happy with it:

Are you viewing our group using a web browser? I noticed in your headers that you
are posting through WindowsForumz.com. Do you realise that they are simply sending
your posts to the Microsoft newsgroups, and you are unnecessarily using a middleman?

Visit us using a newsreader at:
