This one works on my Win98SE:  http://www.filehippo.com/download_avast_antivirus/6635/
Last time I booted, it auto-updated.  Don't know how long that will last.
I did have to register to get a free license key.

Well once again C_C I have to thank you, (and I did, ;)). I followed your lead and it is exactly as you stated.
I downloaded , updated and registered this AV.
I'm particularly pleased with the fact that the AV is Avast. I use Avast on my main PC and so far I have found it to be absolutely,if not the best,one of the best free(or otherwise) AV's available. And yes, how long the updates will last (this version),is anyones guess? But to have an AV version for which they are still forwarding updates(Win98 in this day and age), is quite amazing to me and very much appreciated. Again, thanks for this. overthehill

Avast 4.8 should work: http://www.filehippo.com/download_avast_antivirus/tech/6635/
Sorry Broni, I just couldn't get it to work  :( . Not that I doubted you for a minute but I just couldn't get it to work. After more info.(than I probably deserved) from  C_C , it finally all came together. overthehill

    Avira is a good antivirus for windows 98. It is a lightweight antivirus that is appropriate to your operating system. You can search in the internet for the download link.
