    Anti Spam for 95?

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Hi folks, is anyone out there using an anti spam program that works on an old 486 machine loaded with Win 95? I tried to load Mailwasher, which I love, but it would not work or install on that old machine, said it was due to missing files. Perhaps there is another program that I might try for the user? Many thanks........

    <IMG SRC=http://www.krymow.com/images/icon_butterflytwo.gif> Hi, <font face="Comic Sans MS"><font color=magenta>Cyber</font color=magenta></font face=comic> ~

    I have not personally tried it, but PC World has ranked McAfee's Spamkiller as their best buy with it's intelligent set up and ease of use. You can download a free trial version here from PC World and you can get product info, updates, and buy it here at McAfee.

    This is compatible with Windows 95, but it would be advisable to download the Windows Socket 2 Update and Windows 95 Year 2000 Update before installing.

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Hi Bruce, thank you for the sites and help relating to the old machine. Very helpful, I think the Windows 95 year 2000 update might be the solution. I will also download the windows socket 2 update as I have no idea exactly what the old gentleman has installed over the years. He is 80 and I feel would have trouble adjusting to a new XP machine, it has taken him till now to feel confident on the old computer. Only wants to get his email and check a few things on the net. Very appreciative of the help, I could not find anything when searching for an O/S that goes back to 95. You are terrifiK... <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
