    I have been using Free AVG antivirus software for a few years but they have now stopped supporting it for Windows ME - no more updates!
    Can anyone recommend a different free antivirus for Windows ME which I could download?

    I don't want to sound funny, but, does anything work on ME now?

    Have you tried this - Free Antivirus for Windows - Open source GPL virus scanner

    I work in IT and would also recommend Avast. You will always get better protection with a paid for solution but the Personal Avast is pretty good. ME was a short lived and appauling operating system so you will probably find it harder and harder to get software/drivers for it. Mind you Vista isnt much better. XP Service Pack 3 however is spot on. Anyway here is a link for you

    Download FREE antivirus software - avast! Home Edition
