I have uploaded to Simtel.Net: 26282 bytes    Y2Ksolve: Test and solve Y2K problems

Y2Ksolve will not only test your computer for possible Y2K-problems, but
Y2Ksolve will fix them as well.  It does this by a special device-driver
and a TSR-program, which are automatically installed.  In this way
Y2Ksolve is able to fix Y2K-problems in DOS (version 3.3 and higher)
Windows 95 and Windows 98.

Y2Ksolve provides a number fixes.  RTC-fix to fix the real time clock,
when doesn't support the rollover from 1999 to 2000, but it will fix
your BIOS-interrupts as well.  Y2Ksolve include a special fix, which is
useable when your BIOS is not Y2K-compliant, but it will fall back to a
date other then 01/01/1900.  Most of these BIOSses will fall back to
01/04/1980, when you use the Special Fix this will be no problem

Special requirements: None.
