Instead of software, I'd recommend a hardware solution:

Buying something to prevent malware on that particular OS sort of
like, caulking and weather stripping a cardboard box for winter
comfort.

IMO Avast.  It will run on W95 and is free to download.

F-Prot. Free on demand DOS scanner and the Windows 98 version "may" work
with Win95. The original Win95 and Win95A update doesn't always work with
Win98 compatible software. The later OEM versions such as Win95B will
usually work OK.

FWIW: F-Prot for DOS works perfectly on W95B.

To clarify what I said, the original version of Win95 and the first update
Win95A do not always work with software and drivers designed for Win98.

I don't think the it's a Win95 problem but more of an issue that some
Win98 software and drivers look for the later versions of Win95.

I'm guessing that maybe it's an issue of USB support that was contained in
some versions of Win95B and Win95C, both of which were only "officially"
available as OEM products. There was also reported to be a Win95D but it
may just have been a rumor.

I still have an old box with Win95B OSR 2.01. I've been able to install a
number of Win98SE features this version and they work great.

Chas.

    Yes it does work, LFN and all some W98 bugs, but works Win3.1-->Win98+
The Dos Based version is on it's last upgrade with FRISK....their replacement is
XP style:


=================

       How to obtain updates to the DOS shareware version over the net:

Updates to F-PROT consist of three distinct files.

   fp-xxx.zip   This file is updated as necessary, maybe every one or two
                months.  It contains the DOS version of F-PROT and the
                current virus definition files.

   fp-def.zip   Contains the latest SIGN.DEF and SIGN2.DEF

   macrdef2.zip Contains the latest MACRO.DEF

                The .DEF update files are updated more frequently than the
                program itself.  At the moment, they are only available
                directly from us (ftp.f-prot.com), and any site that
                mirrors our FTP site, but that may change soon.

If you have FTP access, you can always get the current version of F-PROT by
anonymous FTP from a number of sites.  Our primary method of distribution
is through Simtel and Garbo, and all "mirrors" of those sites should always
carry an up-to-date version of F-PROT.

The primary locations are

   ftp://garbo.uwasa.fi/pc/virus/fp-xxx.zip
   ftp://ftp.simtel.net/pub/simtelnet/msdos/virus/fp-xxx.zip

   http://www.simtel.net/pub/simtelnet/msdos/virus/fp-xxx.zip

xxx stands for the version number, for example 308 in version 3.08

The Simtel archive is mirrored on numerous sites, and in general you
should use the one that is closest to you geographically.
