  1. Mate I got the exact same results as you did using Windows XP SP3 and Firefox 3.6.13
  2. I mean, you don't want to have Photoshop 7 previously installed on the Win XP computer prior to you installing WinINSTALL LE. WinINSTALL needs to see every system change that is made when you install Photoshop 7 on Windows XP so it can do the same for you on Windows 7 64 bit
  3. Internet Explorer is a standalone application since Windows Vista Explorer and Internet Explorer are now 2 applications which are not mixed. And with Windows 7 MS moved the IE into an own Package, where you can configure (enable, disable, remove) IE. So I can remove Internet Explorer from Windows 7 so I will forever be safe from any virus design to attack Microsofts browser?
  4. you would think Microsoft would have learnt and in Windows 7 made Internet Explorer a stand alone application.
  5. I didn't realise PAE was part of Win2k
  6. Microsoft have release a patch that adds DEP to Internet Explorer 6 for Win 2000/XP. I wonder if it can be made to work on Win9x http://support.microsoft.com/kb/979352
  7. the main reason i ask is I want to know if I am going to be forced to waste my time constantly updating an internet browser I never use.
  8. That's alright, if you don't have KernelEx you can't run Firefox 3+ anyway
  9. Hmmm, I wonder what they changed after Java 6 update 7 that removed Win9x support?
  10. I definately don't use IE6 as an internet browser anymore, but what else should us Win98 users with IE6 do? I have set IE6's security level to HIGH. Is that enough?
  11. I know that using Internet Explorer 6 on the internet is not a smart thing to do. But what I want to know is, if I exclusively use up-to-date versions of Firefox, Chrome or Opera.... should I still update Internet Explorer 6 to the latest version? If I set all its security settings to HIGH and then never touch it again, am I safe from web attacks?
  12. So, if I have Internet Explorer 6 instaled, but don't use it to surf the internet. Am I still vunverable from this exploit?
  13. So did Java 6 update 18 install without any mods or problems?
  14. Can we convince Trumpet to give us his Win9x stuff?
  15. I know that Windows 95/98/Me don't support IPv6 as standard, but is there any way to make them support the new Internet Standard if/when it is implemented? More importantly can it be done for free?

  17. I have just had an encounter with a USB Thumbdrive virus that is activated by the autorun feature in Windows. The virus killvbs.vbs installs itself onto your computer after inserting an infected USB storage device when Windows tries to automatically run or open the device. So a good safety measure to prevent these viruses is to TURN OFF the auto run feature in your version of wndows. A web search on the topic will tell you how. To manually remove killvbs.vbs virus I had to: 1. Remove all thumb drives from the Computer and turn off autorun 2. Ctrl + Alt + Delete, Task Manager, Processes, wscript, End Process 3. Delete killvbs.vbs from the c:/windows/system32 folder 4. Delete killvbs.vbs and autorun.inf from all infected usb storage devices 5. Search for killvbs.vbs in the registry --- If you have C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,C:\WINDOWS\system32\wscript.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\killVBS.vbs --> modify the key and delete everything after the comma so it now reads C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe --- delete all other registry keys that are found to contain killvbs.vbs OR Use a virus sacanner and keep it up-to-date and scan all USB storage devices you plug into it.
  18. Alright, I tested it on Windows 98 and Win98 SE and it runs, but I still don't know if the malware and viruses it detects actually effect Windows 98. Does anyone know? Here is the list of items it detects. http://vil.nai.com/vil/Stinger_10_0_1_624_Threats_List.pdf And is anyone willing to test it on Win95 and WinMe
  19. Alright I found this free Virus Detection / Removal software from McAfee that runs on Windows 98. It only finds specific virus so its not a total package but it may have some use. http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger What I like is it is a single .exe so it runs without installation and can run from a usb thumb drive. My question is... are any of the 1,370 threats it detects and heals actually a threat for Windows 9x systems?
  20. I don't think the IPX-SPX protocol matters for Internet play, only LAN. Correct me if I'm wrong.
  21. I can get the game working fine, just not online.
  22. I got Red Alert 1 running with Red Alert Setup Manager v0.98 http://ra.nv17.com:8000/utilities/red-alert_manager_0.98.exe but I couldn't get it to play online
  23. I have recently got a new computer with 64bit Windows 7 Surprisingly most of my applications worked without a hitch even older programs like Microsoft Office 2000 But I couldn't get Photoshop 7 to install. Now I found out that Photoshop 7 itself is a 32bit program, but the installer is 16 bit and therefor not compatible with 64 bit operating systems. So if I could get it to install then it should run fine. After searching the internet for a while I came across a utility Microsoft used to include in Windows 2000 Advanced Server that allows you to make new .msi installer packages for your older software. Hmmm, maybe this might work. Now Microsoft has stopped supporting WinInstall LE but a new company has taken it on: http://www.scalable.com/ For this package; - you need another computer (or dual boot) with a 32bit operating system like Windows 2000 / XP / Vista or even 32bit Windows 7. As long as it's 32 bit. - the 32 bit computer CANNOT have the program you wish to install (in my case Photoshop 7) currently installed on it. The system needs to be clean. - Install WinINSTALL LE (get it for free from http://www.scalable.com/wininstall ) and then run it following its prompts - Let WinInstall LE scan your system - Install your program when prompted ( Photoshop 7 ) - Let WinINSTALL do a "POST INSTALLATION" scan. It will now create a new installation package for you. Congrats, you can take this post installation package and install it on Windows 7 64bit And just to let you know, the Photoshop 7.01 update installs perfectly and doesn't require you to do anything to it. Just download it from Adobe's website, run it, tell it where you installed Photoshop 7 and it will do the rest. I hope this helps. This process should also work for Windows XP x64 and Vista x64 Now I am off to see if I can get Red Alert Aftermarth to install on a Windowsw 7 64 bit. Wish me luck!

  24. I'm going to flesh it out, when I get some flesh to fill it out with and some time to do the fleshing
