  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 As firewall I am running ZoneAlarm AntiVirus 6.1.744.001 (with its outdated antivirus part disabled).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 On my Win98SE PC (AMD K6-3+@550MHz,768MB RAM) I run the firewall ZoneAlarm AntiVirus 6.1 (outdated antivirus part disabled) combined with Avast4.8 AntiVirus (start delayed through StartRight to prevent race condition lockups).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
  16. Java 6 fails with CPU error (cmov) despite FineSSE. I attempt to start Java 6 on Win98SE/KernelEx. I unpacked this from DOS: jre-6u31-windows-i586-s.exe /s Then I started the MSI installer: E:\WINDOWS\Anwendungsdaten\Sun\Java\jre1.6.0_31\jre1.6.0_31.msi I have successfully installed everything, but clicking on the Java control panel icon does nothing, beside producing an error log file in my Java directory. The error looks like when my CPU was not supporting the "cmov()" instruction, however the installed FineSSE should fix this. E:\Programme\Java\jre6\bin\hs_err_pid4294274257.log Because Fin
  17. How can I use Java 6 (jre6 version 31) on Win98SE/KernelEx? I have successfully installed everything, but clicking on the Java control panel icon does nothing, beside producing an error log file in my Java directory. The error looks like when my CPU was not supporting the "cmov()" instruction, however the installed FineSSE should fix this. E:\Programme\Java\jre6\bin\hs_err_pid4294274257.log - How can I fix this?
  18. I have installed Opera 12.02 on Win98SE/KernelEx. When I tried to click on .htm files, Opera started with an error and garbage in a search engine box instead of starting that file. So I installed Launcher.exe as described above. Now I can indeed start Opera by clicking on a .htm or .html file and it will display correctly. But once Opera is already started, clicking on any additional .htm file shows up that error and search engine gibber again. (Dragging into browser window works ok.) Another bizarre bug is that clicking on a HTTP link in Thunderbird (e-mail program) opens an explorer window w
  19. After a visitor gave up using my PC, we finally installed Opera 12.02 (KEX Win 2000 mode). It works indeed surprisingly well after learning what is where. Although Opera doesn't load and scroll really smoother (accelerated it even makes the screen update blocky) and Twitter website is still awfully slow (try mobile.twitter.com instead), at least it doesn't continuously lock up in eBay page download anymore, nor crash with pages trying to execute a "window.print"(?) javascript command. Opera can import Firefox 3.6.22 bookmarks, but it was very messy to move stuff around in Opera's bookmark edit
  20. How can I permanently disable the "Frequency out of range" error popup in Amiga 50Hz mode? The Fujitsu-Siemens Sceneview B17-3 is an office grade TFT monitor with 17 inch 4:3 pivot screen. Its IPS panel was not really designed for gaming (despite claimed 5ms speed). It has reasonable colour stability, but brightness changes with view angel. The white case with collapsible stand is fairly slim. Technically it seems to be a P17-x/P19-x/P21-x variant. As a convinced CRT user I bought this thing for emergency-use only (on a flea market for 4€). menu buttons: The menu behaviour is quite confusing.
  21. Skip ahead a few versions ... FF 8 and 9 work fine (except as I noted above) with the help of KernelEx 4.5.2 (in fact, if I recall, so do versions 7, 6 and maybe even 5). Joe. Does their browser history and bookmarking work in Win98SE? A browser without that is completely useless!
  22. I have installed the Google opt-out plugin and especially block any Facebook content. While Google (used as search engine, not Google Plus or mobile phone stuff) is mediocre, I consider Facebook even a criminal organization. Its mindedness against privacy is IMO in no way better than Slimetology. No other widespread internet service has a such agressively data-eating dictatorial attitude like Facebook. They are like the Bork - nobody (and no data) can escape their empire once you are part of it.
  23. Thanks. The hanging pulldown menu was caused by manually blocking "ajax.googleapis.com/*" in Adblock Plus. Unblocking it fixed the problem.
  24. Of course I am using Firefox 3.6.22 - no newer version works with Win98SE. By the way, even here in the MSFN forum the first pulldown menu "Signed in as" stays permanently open (hangs down) and so wastes space on the screen. It is uncloseable. Please fix this.
  25. In Firefox I use the plugin Adblock Plus to fight ads (WebWasher 3.4 made too much trouble), and to reduce picture file size (i.e. bandwidth) there is the FasTun proxy plugin. Additionally I have Flashblock installed to start Flash only on selected websites (others manually by click). With AdBlock Plus you can also disable other unwanted pictures individually (e.g. eBay components) to save bandwidth and screen space.
