ESET still offers version 2.71 of their NOD32 Antivirus, which is still fully updated and supported by the company for people that are on deprecated platforms. I hate to sound like an advertisement, but I find that ESET's AV software is the best in the business (as long as it's configured properly).http://www.eset.com or, if you want to download a trial without promising your first-born to the company, http://www.eset.eu/download1/

Thanks but AVG does not have support anymore for windows 98, now it only works from windows 2000 with SP4 with the rollup update for SP4 and up.

To Install Avast you need a license key?

Yes, but you can just register there for 1 year free, and after 1 year you need to do the same and again and again, everytime it's free.

Plus I don't like the Avast! UI.
You really can't set anything in there.

Why are you looking for versions of antivirus software for old versions of windows?

also i imagine any that worked fro 95 has a version that works for 98 if not the same file.

It is because most of the antiviruses that still have support don't work for Windows 95 and Windows 98.
