The minimum system requirements for avast! home edition seem to be:
For a computer running Windows
I have almost completed the configuration and basic SW installation for the laptop my grandson will be using. I could not afford something better than the IBM Thinkpad 390E type 2060OEG I already have. It has a PII processor with 128 KB RAM.The OS is Win98 FE (German), with all the updates I could find in the update page of Microsoft. I cannot upgrade the OS in this moment, due to my own practical reasons.
But something very important is still missing: a suitable antivirus. Right now it seems that the main vendors are no longer supporting this OS and the few that still do, such as Norman, have requirements this machine does not fulfill. And I believe that a laptop with internet access and no antivirus installed will not survive the hostile environment of the present WWW for much time, particularly in the hands of a child.
I need your recommendations about a suitable Antivirus, that could run on this Win98FE laptop without consuming too many resources. Of course I can pay for the program, it is not necessary that it be free.
I thank you in advance for your most valuable help.
