Re: windows 98

No McAfee products are compatible with those operating systems as they have long ago become obsolete.

I believe that Malwarebytes Free anti-malware (not an anti-virus) is still compatible (see the last link in my signature below for it's download link) but as far as an anti-virus goes I recommend you do an online search for that as I do not know of one.

Re: windows 98

You can (with a little perseverance) get anti-virus coverage for Windows 98. Your best bets would seem to be Clamvir and Avast. For Windows 95 it might be more difficult.

For Windows 98 see the following -

http://www.oldsoftwaredownloads.com/security/old-versions-avast-antivirus.php?os=Win&version=7.0.147...

For Windows 95 it's a question of searching and hoping. Sophos only withdrew products covering Win95/98 as late as last year so there's still a possibility of finding something. Again, Clamvir and Avast seem the front-runners.
