I run Windows98SE.  I'm tired of all these free AV programs that no
longer support Win98se.  I was running AVG until it just puked out and
would not get updates, and said something about no longer supporting
98.   I've decided to just buy a used copy of Norton AV on Amazon or
some other place.  What is the last version that supports Win98se?
I'm sure their newest ones dont.  

Someone said they have Norton AV 5 and would sell it cheap, but they
said they think thats for Win95?  When I looked on some website it
listed them by year from 2002 to 2008 or something like that.  Unless
version 5 is from 2005????

Anyone know?  

And if I was to buy one of these older ones, does NAV still furnish
the definition files?

Dont waste your time to tell me to upgrade to XP, I'm perfectly happy
with Win98.  It's just some of the support for software that sucks
these days.

As of May 10th, NAV 2002 (and also NAV 2003 I think) can no longer be
updated with new virus definition files; the problem is related to the ever
increasing size of the files, and effectively means the end of usefulness of
NAV 2002.
