    Hi there, first of all I wanted to thank @roytam1 for providing these builds! I wanted to share an auto-update script I wrote to automatically download the latest Weekly Browser Binary from here every Saturday and install it. I'm sure this isn't the best way to be doing this but worked well for me as a scheduled task every Saturday at 11:55 PM The script as it's written assumes the following but can be easily modified for your setup: 7-Zip is installed Your browser is located at C:\Program Files\palemoon GNU Wget 1.19.4 binary is located at C:\Program Files\palemoon_updater Script must be run on Saturday after the weekly binaries have been posted Essentially the script just downloads the latest NM28XP build and extracts it. Good enough for me. ::Set variables cd /d "%PROGRAMFILES%\palemoon_updater" set CURRENTDATE=%date:~10,4%%date:~4,2%%date:~7,2% ::End palemoon process taskkill /im palemoon.exe /f ::Download latest palemoon build wget -r -l1 -np -nd -A palemoon-28.5.0a1.win32-git-%CURRENTDATE%-*-xpmod.7z https://o.rths.cf/palemoon/ ::Extract archive to Program Files "%PROGRAMFILES%\7-Zip\7z.exe" x -y -o"%PROGRAMFILES%" *.7z ::Delete downloaded archive DEL /Q *.7z

    @deomsh Of course Watler should have every credit for originally writing the driver, initially for Windows 3.1, but as far as I'm concerned your skill was in porting the Windows 3.1 driver to Windows 98, writing the INF file which made the installation easy to do. Also of course doing the necessary analysis and work to produce the Hdaicout.hda file that worked with my hardware! I wouldn't have even known where to start with any of that! There are so many brilliant and talented people here on this forum, I sometimes feel that I'm not worthy. However if my problems and their resolutions can help others in the future I'm delighted with that. As I mentioned earlier I had a similar problem getting a driver for my onboard Ethernet port to work on Windows 98, which resulted in a thread even longer than this one! That also used a driver designed for a much earlier operating system (DOS in that case, Windows 3.1 in this case) and it also proved that "where there's a will, there's a way", especially here on MSFN! Yet again, I salute you all!

    Probably downloading Youtube videos completly on the hard drive is more efficent for your processor than streaming them directly. Depends on the power your computer has for sure! For those with their very old ones, there is a new website called convert2mp3.net that downloads Youtube videos for you. It works without JavaScript and you can choose between all the quality settings like avi, 3gp and also just mp3 audio. Windows 98 is well supported here. Still, check out the connections, that your browser does when accessing that website. There are some suspicious links to pages, that are listed in virus lists and spam filters. These suspicious connections don't establish, if you don't activate JavaScript. But all in all, it's better to block them anyway. So this can be put into your Hosts file to clean your internet traffic a bit. pushgaga.com remtoaku.net tharbadir.com baipagid.com deloplen.com pushame.com pushbaddy.com pushdusk.com pushimer.com pushbasic.com wachipho.net apis.google.com platform.twitter.com Also, if I may speak out my two biggest recommendations for browsing the web with old Windows 98 computers: 1. Disable JavaScript entirely. 2. Build up a hosts file to clear your internet traffic from unnecessary connections. If Google spam is gone there, you will have a faster internet speed.

    I suggest Repartition Bad Drive. It can isolate the defective cluster preventing access. A lot of disks (that would be worth of garbage) can be saved and still works like a charme.

    Credit, where credit's due, of course. But bear in mind you've studied the driver and the hardware till it made sense for you, and then you brought that to the community, and performed an impressive troubleshooting, together with @Dave-H: the persistence and patience both of you demonstrated is paradigmal of how it ought to be done, and fully deserving of the successful results reached. Of course the driver is important, but the whole process illustrated in this thread actually is just as much important as the driver itself.

    I see those win10 lookalikes and raise you Q4OS + XPQ4. https://q4os.org/index.html https://xpq4.sourceforge.io/ In Live CD form dumped onto a USB on a ThinkPad T60 it's not much less snappier than server 2003 on the TP's SSD.

    Happy Easter, everybody! I am the Easter bunny bringing my Easter eggs: Replaced Monthly Rollup with the new KB4493471 (located on the root directory of the repository) Added a new Servicing Stack update KB4493730 (located on the root directory of the repository) Added Security Only Updates, KB4489876 and KB4493458 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)") Replaced Internet Explorer Cumulative Update with KB4493435 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)") Added .NET Updates: -KB4488661 for .NET 2.0 SP2 (located in "/NET 2.0 SP2") -KB4488669 for .NET 4.5.2 (located in "/NET 4.5.2") -KB4488666 for .NET 4.6-4.6.1 (located in "/NET 4.6-4.6.1") Added Extra updates KB4490128 (located in "/Extras") with an updated readme file A few notes, as usual: the build number bump is certainly an interesting phenomenon, but sadly an uneventful one (it should've been a new Service Pack). The new Servicing Stack update was released to support SHA2 signing of updates, but no accompanying update (just as a reminder, Windows 7 had both the SS and an additional update). The .NET updates are not Rollups or Security Only, but simply standalones to add support for the new Japanese Calendar, so there's no real need to apply them if you live outside The Land Of The Rising Sun . Lastly, for some reason the new timezone update KB4490128 does not supersede the old timezone updates in the Catalog, so I added it to the Extras folder instead of replacing the older ones with it. https://mega.nz/#F!txxRyLzC!1vBMGzMHiL864f3bl1Rj1w

    @someguy25 @Dave-H @VistaLover @Mathwiz I'm sure if you're patient for a few days Duke University will upload the current version to their FTP. I'm sure they wait a little while to bug test, but this has always been a reliable source for Java: http://faucet.aas.duke.edu/pub/pc/bigfix/patches/java/

    I really like the new edge based on chromium. People should try it out.
