  1. Thanks. I'm running the 11 version now and installed flash 10 over latest kernel ex. Only problem is, whenever i use the IE6 flash applications make the browser crash(as flash 10 is only supposed to run on win 2000 and ie6 from win98se don't work together). However I could speed up my downloads a bit. But its no real boost. I used this application: http://www.speedguide.net/downloads.php Just wanted to share this information, as I know how it sometimes sucks being limited on internet speed just because of the registry settings and so stuff...
  2. I've done some testing with the browsers. However I found out that FireFox 3 is not the best choice. I'm now using the Opera version 10.63 on my Windows 98SE Pc which is better than FF. For example when I tried loading the website "List of TCP and UDP port numbers - Wikipedia" the loading of the table it took nearly eternities with ff3 or internet explorer 6. Background info: The opera 10.63 (apparently for windows me, but it will work on 98se too, at least on using kernelEx) is from 2010. so pretty actual! I found the version through "wikihow" -"how to use windows 98". The direct link (if unknown) to the browser is: http://www.oldapps.com/opera.php?old_opera=85 Btw. I want to say thank you to the community for the great uptodate " Last Versions of Software for Windows 98SE " section, through which I found Spybot Search&Destroy 2.2 as a Anti-Spyware software. At the moment I'm trying to optimize internet speed on my 98se Pc. Because I don't want to take the fact, that my machine only reaches 6mbps download potential through a 100BaseT cable! And our max speed on every other OS is 15Mbit/s with W-Lan! So I'm trying to find out if there is any spyware on it. Soon I'll find out more!
  3. FAILED! (Error 403!) Thank you very much for this announcement. Our host.sk server however deleted the file out of unknown reasons and further uploads of certain sizes ON THERE are not possible. I am uploading it now on an alternative server. Please watch the first site of the thread I posted the new links now!
  4. SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT I am NOT the creator of the Windows 98 Upgrade Pack, I'm just the Webmaster and hoster for www.w98upg.net.tf, the Producer was and still is winxpi!!! So if you have any questions please ask winxpi! I will just update the contents of the first page if updates are made on request of xpi! So please take that in consideration. Fine!
  5. I wish you all a merry x-mas , and a happy new year =) . From the Host.
  6. BTW how can I patch the header of the verclsid.exe file for example,is it difficult? When there is a working version can you tell here,Tihiy? Does someone know how to check this security hole.
  7. There is also an additional domain for the site: www.w98upg.net.tf Of course there are direct download links too: English http://bpa23.host.sk/wupg98en-jul.exe http://rapidshare.de/files/27381321/wupg98en-jul.exe.html http://files.filefront.com/wupg98en+julexe...;/fileinfo.html German http://bpa23.host.sk/wupg98de-jul.exe http://rapidshare.de/files/27380491/wupg98de-jul.exe.html http://files.filefront.com/wupg98de+julexe...;/fileinfo.html
  8. The patch would be better because it adds missing APIs that require other programs to work besides MM like AutoUpdate etc.... Yes your right if the thing you're meaning is that KUP adds missing APIs that other progs also require.
  9. I find it good when we don't have to know about new bugs in Windows 98/98SE/ME.
  10. Good example: copy browselc.dll %windir% copy browseui.dll %windir% CD %windir%\System regsvr32 /u /s %windir%\System\browseui.dll ;unregisters the browseui.dll file in System using silent mode regsvr32 /u /s %windir%\System\browselc.dll ;unregisters the browselc.dll file in System using silent mode regsvr32 /i /s %windir%\browseui.dll ;registers the browseui.dll file in %windir% using silent mode regsvr32 /i /s %windir%\browselc.dll ;registers the browselc.dll file in %windir% using mode
  11. It corrects a security issue in the Windows Explorer and such updates are not often released for Windows 98 since there is only extended support for win98 and those issues where mostly not rated as critical from MS. In other words it closes a security risk in the nearly always used Windows Explorer. I am rather doubt about that Microsoft will still release an update because they would have to change the shell32.dll from a 9x system which I think is unlikely because it isn't programmed in the same way as in NT line and therefore they have maybe already forgotten it.
  12. Did you mean Windows 98 Upgrade Pack ? And like others said before some updates are obsolete. See the top of the thread. It just says it's on the MGDX site; Anyone know where it actually stems from [user-written?]cjl From here?
