The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. With all of the talk about Windows XP versus Vista, I sometimes forget how many people are still running older versions of Microsoft's venerable operating system.
Home Users love it because it is simple to use and is still fun to use.
If you are wondering where AVG (Anti-Virus Grisoft) is, try: direct link to the actual download info, and software, is at: you've tried the rest,go get the very best free AV and that's Avast!! Just key in in the search box and download the free personal version. I have Mcafee but it really is not easy and I want something that is more simple to use.

Runs full time in real time in they the same thing or different?
It will not work with Morton Internetr Security either. Furthermore, you can buy AVG and use advanced settings to disable auto updating. However, you should check the specs before you download as even Ubuntu GG is requiring 384 RAM for install now. clean any remnants that may be left in the program folder. I see one here: sticks in the back of my mind that AVG my be discontinuing support for Windows 98 and older O/S. Glennwell i put in avg and it comes up corrupted and if i read it right it checks your pc and is good for all versions-- i have the lowest version of zone lab fire wall instead of 6.0 is the only 1 that will work any higher -will not think fire wall needs upgrade to 6.0 as it will have program select if i want it to come though vs.
I keep my Norton Firewall while binning the overladen crap that comes with Norton Anti Virus. Am not sure of that and may have some other software in mind. now i dont And for all the memory it will hog from a 98 machine, you may as well just run Avast with no OS. Avira Anti-vir which I use "which I am not claiming is the best" does a better job and takes far less resources.
