Last Versions of Software for Windows 98SE

943 posts in this topic

seeing as Lavasoft Ad-Aware SE Personal 1.06r1 no longer updates and i keep it portable anyways, i wrote up a dirty batch simple and roughly modeled after one of jimmsta's. uses wget.(i use SSL static build)

"wget -N http://download.lavasoft.com/public/defs.ref" placed in batfile in same dir works very well.

if the file's up-to-date, it states - Server file no newer than local file `defs.ref' -- not retrieving.

if the file's not up-to-date, you can watch it download at the command prompt. :thumbup

hope this helps somebody. :D

Apparently professional still updates fine -(thx Philco), but I was diggin' around on the lavasoft forums, and if i'm not mistaken, it won't exactly be easy to get from them.

What free AntiVirus for 98 do you think is the fastest? I'm having to run an 8-year-old PC for a few months, and I want to stay safe, but don't want to make it any slower than it already is.

Fastest and best is common-sense.

You may run an on-demand antivirus scanner whenever you think there might be a risk, otherwise just 'watch your step'.

Look on the second post of this topic and you will find a link to Avast! 4 Home virus scanner.

It's probably one of the fastest and it works in 98.

You will need to register for a product key, but registration is free and lasts for 14 months.

After that you simply re-register.

"wget -N http://download.lavasoft.com/public/defs.ref" placed in batfile in same dir works very well.

the only doubt i have, is that i already had the latest definition, so i haven't actually seen it overwrite.

it does state, however - Server file no newer than local file `defs.ref' -- not retrieving.

hope this helps somebody. :D

It sure helped me! Thanks a lot. You rock! :thumbup

LAST - $$$$ - Sonic Foundry Sound Forge 6.0 --- The authors sold themselves out to Sony. Hardly obtainble legally.

LAST - FREE - FileZilla Server 0.9.12c --- http://downloads.sourceforge.net/filezilla...ver-0.9.12c.exe

There is a higher version number of FileZilla installing on Win98. But it does not save its settings properly, and effectively does not work. FileZilla authors wouldn't say which version can be used on Win98 because of "security issues" in older builds.

The last version of FileZilla for 98/ME is 2.2.22. The changelog for the version released after this stated that 98/ME support had been dropped.

As for other FTP clients, WINSCP is still supported (current version is 4.06):

There are two parts in FileZilla, the "server" and the "client".
