  1. severe bug: Thunderbird crashes ClamWin I already have submitted the following bug report to the ClamWin forum: http://forums.clamwin.com/viewtopic.php?t=4286 I am using ClamWin with German Win98SE/KernelEx on a historical PC (DFI K6BV3+ Motherboard, AMD K6-3+ @550MHz, 768MB RAM, 160GB HDD) which is actually optimized for DOS Games (2 real ISA sound cards, 3Dfx Voodoo 1 graphics card etc.). As firewall I am running ZoneAlarm AntiVirus 6.1.744.001 (with its outdated antivirus part disabled). The start sequence is controlled through StartRight (finishes ZoneAlarm initialization before startin
  2. Thanks. It was indeed the wrong file (I remembered it much bigger). The correct ClamWin installer is "clamwin-0.98.6-setup.exe" (about 100MB). The only strange behaviour I get from ClamSentinel is that memory test opens a DOS box with the following message: "[DllMain] Error setting up low-fragmentation heap: 120" Then it rests some minutes with: "Loading virus signature database, please wait..." After this it does start to scan (a bit slowly?) the currently loaded DLLs etc. I am not sure if there is something wrong due to the stange heap error. Is this normal or something serious?
  3. I am trying to install on Win98SE "clamav-0.98.7-win32.msi", but the installer requests to install the .NET 4 framework. So I downloaded "dotNetFx40_Client_setup.exe", which however only displays this error requester: "There is not enough disk space on your drive for the new files to be uncompressed and installed. Please run this application again after you have freed some space on your drive." I have about 2GB free, which should be plenty enough to uncompress the 868KB file. I already tried various KernelEx settings, but it doesn't help. So I downloaded "clamav-0.98.7-win32.zip" but I don'
  4. On my Win98SE PC (AMD K6-3+@550MHz,768MB RAM) I run the firewall ZoneAlarm AntiVirus 6.1 (outdated antivirus part disabled) combined with Avast4.8 AntiVirus (start delayed through StartRight to prevent race condition lockups). However nowadays a complete boot takes about 20 minutes and Avast update even >30 minutes. Also random bowser lockups likely come from Avast, which seems to slow down the machine by 90% in some situations. I guess this bloatware monster does linear search through an infinitely growing virus database and since long time has lost its point of usefulness. (The only malwa
  5. The secret service lobby obviously prevented hardware to become virus-proof by design to still allow their own spyware to be installed, which helps the spread of other malware exploiting the same vulnerabilities. So antiviruses were made, those have a good reason (plausible denial...) of regularly downloading new instructions, of searching whole harddisk contents for some kinds of "patterns", of being encrypted and of uploading things they found back to some obscure places online. So IMO there is no more logical place to camouflage harddisk espionage tools (or even enshroud an entire secret b

  8. My "Scanners and Cameras" window is empty and shows none of my (8 different?) imaging devices and all 3 buttons are grayed out. I own no other PC or OS to test it with. I want to buy a Thinkpad T61 or X61t soon, but that may still take a while. May be the scanner's PSU is bad. The plug is special, but may be I need to tap the cable somehow to test how much ripple the 12V DC 1.25A output has. Perhaps I should try the WIA driver or even the Win98SE Unofficial Service Pack 2, but I fear the latter may make everything worse.
  9. I have installed TWAIN 1.7 (TWAIN9X.EXE) without difference. I also tried out FastStone Image Viewer 5.3; it is much like IrfanView with slicker GUI but less features, thus I uninstalled it. The same imaging device list was already displayed by PicturePublisher 8 and IrfanView anyway, and like these, also FastStone only ended with said scanner communication error.
  10. My "Scanners and Cameras" window displays no imaging devices and all 3 buttons are greyed out. What can this be? I am running Win98SE with KernelEx on a historical PC with AMD K6-3+@550MHz and 768MB RAM on mainboard DFI K6BV3+/66. Canon D1250U2F My very bulky old scanner "Plustek OpticPro 6000P" was for parallel port (which is occupied by my matrix printer) and stopped working long ago by driver trouble. So on a fleamarket I recently bought a scanner "Canon D1250U2F" (stylish 1990th iMac design in grey and transparent violet, including slide scanner, original CD and manual) for USB2. But I don
  11. I already disabled the antivirus scan during installation. The Avast antivirus line appears in DependencyWalker *after* the error already has popped up. I also have ZoneAlarm Antivirus running as a firewall (outdated antivirus part disabled). I hope this won't generally prevent WinPcap from working.
  12. WinPcap installer fails on Win98SE (NSIS) I am trying to install "URL Snooper 2.37.01" on Windows 98SE (German language) with KernelEx 4.5.120. The program depends on the WinPcap driver and comes with versions 4.1.3 and 4.0beta2 - the latter is claimed to be compatible for Windows 98. Unfortunately both refuse to install. Details see here: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/173388-help-winpcap-installer-fails-on-win98se The WinPCap website claims the last version supporting Win98SE were WinPcap 3.1 and WinPcap 4.0beta2. http://www.winpcap.org/install/default.htm However when I attempt to install
  13. This is my DependencyWalker log file from profiling 4.0beta2-WinPcap.exe.
  14. May be the difference is that my Win98SE is the German language version? I already had tested for the installer all KernelEx compatibility modes without success.
  15. To download video streams I am trying to install "URL Snooper 2.37.01" on Windows 98SE (German language) with KernelEx 4.5.120. The program depends on the WinPcap driver and comes with versions 4.1.3 and 4.0beta2 - the latter is claimed to be compatible for Windows 98. Unfortunately both refuse to install. The WinPCap website claims "Starting from WinPcap 4.0beta3, support for the Windows 9x/ME family of operating systems has been dropped. The last builds supporting such OSes are WinPcap 3.1 and WinPcap 4.0beta2, both available in the archive." http://www.winpcap.org/install/default.htm Howeve
