JorgeA Posted August 11, 2011 Share Posted August 11, 2011 Hello,Way back when, my first foray into this Forum had to do with getting Spybot Search & Destroy to work on Windows 98. Although we tried numerous things and I learned a TON about Win98, we never did succeed in getting my Win98 tower to complete a scan using SS&D 1.6.2. The idea of performing a clean installation of Windows came up at some point, but I didn't yet feel knowledgeable enough about Windows to do that. Or, uncomfortable enough with my PC's general performance to justify the effort.Well, I am happy to report that BOTH of these conditions have come to pass. The other day my Win98FE system got sluggish to the point that trying to do anything on it was like pouring molasses. For all practical purposes, the system had become unusable.At the same time, thanks in large part to the good folks on MSFN I have learned enough about Windows and computing generally, to try my hand at reinstalling Windows 98. So I went through the process, installing it on a "new" (new to me, actually refurbished) 19GB HDD and making that the master drive, then updating the OS and installing drivers for all my hardware.And then I installed Spybot, downloaded the current definitions, and -- with fingers crossed -- told it to run a full scan.Two-and-a-half hours later, I saw the glorious big green Spybot checkmark telling me that the scan was done and it hadn't found anything. So I can verify that Spybot does still work on Windows 98 -- even for me!! Thank you all or making this possible.--JorgeA Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
