  1. Try a different monitor. Try changing the AGP Aperture size in BIOS. Try disabling all but the essential devices in the BIOS, or just disconnect them from the motherboard. Try a different power supply. Try Windows 98SE to see if the issue is present there. Use the Radeon card and remove RAM so it's 1GB or less. If the problem still exists, I can only suggest changing the motherboard to a one with a different chipset.
  2. I've bought his Windows 9x AHCI driver, which works wonderfully. I've had many discussions with him on this very forum, I am still, to this day, thoroughly impressed by his work and knowledge. Rest In Peace Rudolph, you will be remembered.
  3. Have you tried using a different hard drive? Maybe a smaller one? Can you try a different power supply? Are the capacitors on the motherboard OK?
  4. Try running the setup with the: /p i switch, note the space between p and i
  5. You may also try RivaTuner, I think it has some options related to AGP: https://dpcdn-s14x.pl/narzedzia/Rivatuner224c(dobreprogramy.pl).zip
  6. KB4464566 includes MSO.DLL as seen on the update website below, therefore it's yet another update to avoid: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4464566/security-update-for-office-2010-september-10-2019
  7. It's the Inno3D GTX 1050 Ti Twin X2. I'm not at home, can't test it for you, will be back in probably a month or two. But I do remember running 98SE with it with no problems.
  8. Try this: https://archive.org/details/Office2000Premium.7z
  9. I haven't had any issues with my GTX 1050 Ti, the standard VGA driver in 98SE worked fine...apart from the usual graphical artefacts. What are your PC specs? Can you try the 1070/98SE on different machines?
  10. Hello Andrea, I can't really think of a reason why it would not work on Windows 7 for you. Try disabling User Account Control, it might help. I haven't personally tested Welcome.exe on other operating systems like 2000/XP/Vista/8 or 8.1. Only on Windows 7 and Linux using Wine (which all worked) and Windows 10 (which did not work). I'm currently quite busy, so don't have any time to make tests of my own, maybe in some distant future.
  11. I've discovered by accident, that this topic was featured by Andrea Borman in her video and on her blog (with detailed instructions)...I am as surprised as you are Internet is a strange place I wish Andrea all good in her life. http://andreaborman2.blogspot.com/2019/09/windows-98-welcome-exe-on-windows-8.html
  12. Following this guide is enough, telemetry in Windows 7 is added on, not built-in: https://www.askwoody.com/forums/topic/2000012-neutralize-telemetry-sustain-win-7-8-1-monthly-rollup-model/
  13. Although this is possibly a hardcoded restriction made by NVIDIA (and without editing driver files, you can't do much with it), try using the oldest drivers that support the 1660 Ti (419.17), from here: https://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/143338/
  14. Can you also try a different GPU/integrated GPU?
  15. Windows Defender in Windows 7 and Windows Vista is anti-spyware only. In Windows 7 it is more hidden than in Windows Vista, why? I don't really know. It doesn't even show up in the taskbar IIRC. Using built-in Windows Defender only in Windows 7/Vista is not really recommended, as it is considered deprecated. Microsoft expects you to install Microsoft Security Essentials to get full anti-virus like experience like you see in Windows 8/8.1/10. And make it easier to actually find it. And it will be in the taskbar. More information here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-my/help/14210/security-essentials-download https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Security_Essentials
