Just a note about this.... updates for InoculateIT PE are still available=
 on a regular basis.  For how long, that's difficult to say.  I still use=
 this anti-virus program on my Win'95 and Win'98 PCs plus a 486/DX2 66MHz=
 machine I use at work.  It has trapped viruses for me and my friends in=
 the past, so I'm confident it works well.

F-Prot is cool too and I've been using that for years, but I wasn't too=
 happy about the lack of updates, and F-Stop (the hibernating app that runs=
 in the background) had a tendency to lock up my PC from time to time.

Yeah, a huge download (over 5MB as I recall) and the interface is really=
 more tha is necessary for such a program.  Bloatware is alive and well and=
 living in our PCs everyday, right?
