    Oh, no.

    There's really no getting around the difficulties presented by WinMe.

    Something with manual updating would be best, I'd think...

    Look at the variety of free versions available and pick the one with the best rep?

    I know absolutely nothing whatsoever about Linux.

    Yes, it is better (by FAR) than WinMe.

    BTW-

    The Canuck is right about NOD32-forgot that one.

    I think XP is more forgiving than you might think, but you need a bit of RAM.

    What have you got?
