Need Active X / Java and FREE Antivirus program + for ME OS

by 101000111101011001 - 3/12/10 10:50 PM

Hi members, I need help here!

I'm in a dilemma. I have to use an old ME OS computer for awhile and can't seem to find a Jave Active X that will work or is supported. On top of that I can't find an antivirus or Software firewall that is supported either? I have looked everywhere.

Ok, I know already . . . It's ME OS, the very worst OS anyone can TRY and use, well . . . apart from Vista anyway. *Grins*

Does anyone know where I can get the needed software FREE.

A working Active X/Java applet; a flash player that is supported; A FREE antivirus program that will work; and a software firewall like Zone Alarm (which does not work now)! All these used to work but I had to format the drive and re-install (for the millionth time) the original ME OS just to get the computer to work. ME = 4.?; IE = 6.0; Outlook = 6.?

All available windows updates have been re-installed.

Anyone with info can e-mail Steve at . . .
Steves(dot)place(dot)mail(at sign)gmail(dot)com

Please do e-mail me with info as I may never find this forum again!

If this works here I'll try that too for your convenience . . .

In the subject line please copy and paste (between the curved brackets) this, so I don't throw it out as spam.

(Java/active X/anti-virus/software firewall [HELP ARRIVED])

Thanks in advance.

Steve
