It is strongly recommend you to update your operating system using the Windows Update:

  • Click on the Start button.
  • Choose the Windows Update option.
  • Download and install all offered updates.
  • Or access the Windows Update site directly at

As to why we don't support older Operating Systems like Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows Me, Windows 2000, the new scanning engine and on-access scanner, as well as the whole AVG technology cannot work on the old systems. These systems do not provide features and functionality that are necessary for proper detection and especially removal of malware. The systems are insecure and have not been maintained by the OS vendor for several years already. Therefore we cannot guarantee sufficient protection
