Get them to update their software or change equipment!  Is it necessary
for that machine to be on the network?

Any critical systems that MUST run on an obsolete operating system because
of propriety software should either be disconnected from any network OR if a
Local Area Network connection is a requirement then the systems should be
kept behind a security server that creates a DMZ.  This will make these
systems AND the more up-to-date systems on other Local Area Networks more
secure.

For a machine tool controller application that runs on hardware that
supports Windows 95 you should also be in discussion with the provider about
onward migration.

Hi Phil,

I'm in a similar position to the OP, except the machine isn't connected to
the network.  I've been thinking about running the application in a virtual
machine running Win95 on more reliable hardware, would this be possible?
There is no provider anymore and being a very small company having someone
re-write the application isn't feasible.

I know nothing about virtualisation really except having tinkered with
Gentoo running in Microsoft's Virtual PC on my pc at home.

All help appreciated.

I was a little startled by it needing an anti virus, but if it was

Get rid of the PCs running95/98SE/Millennium/NT4 first.
No current, av program worth its salt will support that combination.
