Antivirus solution for Windows 95
I have a Compaq 4682, about four- or five-years-old. It is up gradeable but is running Win 95. I am having trouble finding a virus scan that will operate with my system Pentium pro processor 333Mgh. I have upgraded to 128 RAM, but the problem is, all the scanners I can locate are for Win 95 SE. Mine came with 95 and it will not upgrade to 98 unless I use Compaq. Do you know of any virus scans that I can use?
I did some digging and the following products claim to work with Win 95:
M@ilDefense and AchilliesShield from InDefense Inc.
Kaspersky Versions 3.5 and 4.0
F-Secure Anti-Virus Version 5.30
McAfee VirusScan 4.5.1 SP1 with latest engine and dats
Unless you've had some specific problem, this should be a wide enough
range of products to find something that you can work with.
