I'll just note the most common one which was a firewall.

You would have to test such. But given this old os can't be broken into with just one update and with file sharing disabled, why are you running a firewall? This is a real question since many owners don't ask this.

Here's what I run on the old dos windows machines. Free AVG AntiVirus and other browsers than IE.
