Thanks Mick,
That's what I was afraid of. They came out with a patch for Win2k and XP,
but I don't think they support that program anymore.

That's correct, support has ceased.

If you prefer CA try this:
1 year FREE trial of CA Anti-Virus (May 2008)

But *better* alternatives are these:
Avira AntiVir® Personal - FREE Antivirus
You may wish to consider removing the 'AntiVir Nagscreen'
Free antivirus - avast! 4 Home Edition
It includes ANTI-SPYWARE protection, certified by the West Coast Labs
Checkmark process, and ANTI-ROOTKIT DETECTION based on the best-in class
GMER technology.
(Choose Custom Installation and under Resident
Protection, uncheck: Internet Mail and Outlook/Exchange.)
AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition
(Choose custom install and untick the email scanner plugin.)
Kaspersky® Anti-Virus 7.0 - Not Free
ESET NOD32 Antivirus - Not Free

Why You Don't Need Your Anti-Virus Program to Scan Your E-Mail
Viral Irony: The Most Common Cause of Corruption.

and (optional but highly recommendable)

On-demand AV applications.
(add them to your arsenal and use them as a "second opinion" av scanner).
David H. Lipman's MULTI_AV Tool
