Also, the following Spyware and Adware removers are working on Win2k and can be used with the latest detection rules!

- Spybot Search & Destroy v1.6.2 still working and updating to the latest detection rules!
- Malwarebytes v1.60.0.1800 (final working Win2k version) and by deleting the rules.ref the application downloads the latest detection database so a new version is not necessary.

I use ClamWin as free antivirus additional to malwarebytes. It is the windows version of the popular ClamAV for linux. Its not the best antivirus but uses less memory and works even on windows 98.

Oooh hey, that's a good tip!

As a side note, if anyone wants to get Malwarebytes, get it soon as the one-off payment for life is apparently changing to an annual subscription for any new users soon! :shock:

Speaking of viruses & malware, security is going to be an imperative item that cannot be taken likely with this OS (nor any other, including Windows 7). At present, ESET NOD32 AV5 runs quite well on the OS, as does Malwarebytes Pro (MBAM). ESET is getting the bugs out of Smart Security, which contains a firewall that W2K lacks, so that it will work also. Some users has no issues with ESET Smart Security on W2K, it may depend upon the computer. MBAM Pro is an excellent choice to block malware on W2K, and most any Windows OS. Out of the many years that I've ran W2K, I've never been infected with a virus or malware. Just some tracking cookies that SuperAntiSpyware (SAS) removes quickly.
