Default Anti Virus S/W

Hi,

Does anyone know if there is an Antivirus s/w available for WinME? I had a
friend who loves ME (huh) - but cannot install the latest AV s/w in the
market since they are not ME compatible?

Avast! still supports Win Me but that is due to terminate at the end of this
year. SuperAntiSpyware are no longer updating their program for Win Me but
have said that they will continue to update the all essential definitions.
Avast! may well turn out to be the same, that is no program updates but with
updated definition files still available.
