I was so happy to see that SuperAntiSpyware still supports Windows 98, as we still have one old computer which has it as the OS.
So, I downloaded the free ware edition of the program, but when I went to install it, it told me that it couldn't register "SASWINDO.dll" and gave me the options to "Abort", "Retry" or "Ignore". Retrying didn't do anything, so I tried to manually register the dll in the Windows "Run" box, but got an error, probably because it needed to be extracted from the install program. So, not being sure how important the file was, I chose "Ignore" and let it go ahead & install the program, which it did.
Then, I tried to start SuperAntiSpyware, but I got two error messages that say, "The C:\PROGRAM FILES\SUPERANTISPYWARE\SUPERANTISPYWARE.EXE file expects a newer version of Windows. Upgrade your Windows version." and another window that says, "C:\Program Files\SuperAntiSpyware\SUPERAntiSpyware.exe. A device attached to the system is not functioning." I assume they probably have something to do with the failed dll installation, but am not sure.
So what gives? Do I need to download an older version of the program in order for it to work on Windows 98? If so, it would be nice if you put that somewhere in your FAQ or on the download page or something.
Please advise as to what I need to do to get the program installed on this computer. I think it has some type of malware infection and I'm sure there is some spyware/adware on it, so I really need a program that can find and fix the problems. I guess I probably need to uninstall the failed install version first, but will wait for a reply before I do anything further.
Thanks in advance for your help.
