Adobe Reader V6 Caution by [email protected]
Hi, If you install AR6 (Adobe Reader V6), make sure you click on "Edit", "Preferences", select "Update" and change "Check for Updates" to "manually" (default is "automatically"). I failed to do this. Now I believe this was the root cause of my FF 3.6 browser constantly going to "Check...

Update Regarding FF3.6 Going to "Check Your Plugins" Page on Web by [email protected]
Hi, Below is my original post titled, "Adobe Reader V6 Side Effect". It spawned a lot of responses, but everything I tried didn't "work". Later I thought it was just a coincidence and the problem had nothing to do with the installment of Adober Reader V6. I resigned myself to "live with...

What version of DirectX for 98? by [email protected]
A program on my XP computer was bitching about upgrading DirectX. I went to the Microsoft site and found the newest was ver 9c. Actually I thought there was a ver 10, but it was not on there. They did have a ver 11, but that appears to be a beta and only for Windows7 and maybe 8. Anyhow, I have...

Looking for a good chat app for my mobile phone by John Locke
Looked up in Google for possible choices. I'd prefer those that are Android compatible of course and those I can get at a very affordable price. It would be really great if I can get to chat with friends no matter where I go. Can anyone give me suggestions?

Slow internet connection by tom
My w98 system has a 100Mb/s nic which when connected to a Wxp system runs at 80+ Mb/s. When connected to the internet it runs at 4+ Mb/s, the xp system runs at 16+ Mb/s. Swapping cables and router sockets brings no change. How can i increase the speed of the w98 system?

Thunderbird wont match data folder on dual boot by [email protected]
I have Win98 as my main boot and Win2000 as my secondary OS installed (dual boot). I'm finding myself having to use Win2000 more often lately because certain things, especially browsers, will no longer work in Win98. I'm trying to avoid having to install XP, and Win2000 seems to work fairly well...

I keep running into dead ends here. I have a modern i7 machine with Windows XP and Microsoft's GS Wavetable SW for MIDI which sounds different than the one I remember in Win95/98 when I used Voyetra AudioStation to mess with MIDIs. I tried Virtualbox which doesn't simulate the old OPL3 MIDI...

Is there a better file search tool than the one that comes with Win98? I want one that will search by the file extension. For example, I want to find a file containing the word "beatles" and want only the .MP3 files. In the built in "finder", when I go to "Advanced", it wants me to specify what...
