New Features of Version 2.0

Recommended Posts


Hi, GAPE!

I noticed my mysdos.sys file has LOG= entry.... should this be LOGO= ??

I'm guessing this entry came from you re the new animated logo?

Thanks very much.

PS: actually, one way or the other(setting), not getting any screen at all.

These are all valid MSDOS.SYS entries, what they do + how to tweak them:

Thanks again :)

GAPE: ok, the original animated logo's back-- thought you meant a different animated logo.

Thank you too! :)

i think a software cpucooler which sets on idle the cpu to sleep is needed for win98se

here the one i'm using now for years without problems....

pros: very small filesize (66kbyte), very small memory needs

http://www.kt2k.com/downloads.php?file=7

is an better taskmanager included?

here an small (but not well tested) alternative

(pro: priority managment , small

cons: not very stylish :) )

Coolkill is even better. You can easily close problem apps with Coolkill than any other 3rd party task manager. And it uses few resources unlike those other task managers. Get Coolkill here:

http://www.prowebsitemanagement.com/cooltools/coolkill.html

Mdgx recommended that tool for me to use.

And about the hanging problem when deleting a very large number of files with W98/ME + IE6.x. Get 2xExplorer from this site:

http://www.netez.com/2xExplorer/

and use its file/folder shredding feature to 'shred' files and folders. It deletes files a lot faster than Windows Explorer. You can also try out xplorer², the successor to 2xExplorer.

When the 2.0 service pack goes final, will there be documentation that spells out exactly what each of the fixes are and what they do?

I'd like to know exactly what is being changed in case I have problems and need to troubleshoot and fix something.

"And about the hanging problem when deleting a very large number of files with W98/ME + IE6.x"

FYI this can be avoided by using IE 5.5 DLL's (BROWSEUI.DLL 815376 bytes and BROWSELC.DLL 35328 bytes, both version 5.50.4807.2300).
