Title: RE: Try this


The "Windows 98 Second Edition" will be free to all registered users of Windows 98.  However, if you have regularly used the Windows Update feature (i.e., the update download website) you will find that you already have everything in the "Second Edition" already installed.

I have been using Windows 98 since it was a beta, and find it to be very stable.  If your computer crashes routinely, I suspect that the cause is hardware problems, conflicting DLL files (use System File Checker to fix this), or user error.  Now, if I could only find a bit of stability in Outlook 98, I would be a happy guy!

Thus, we need to be GLAD that BG is allowing us the privilege of, for
example, PAYING FOR BUG FIXES as we are doing with "Windows 98 Second
Edition"! The fact that Windows 98 crashes routinely on my computer--where
it was preloaded when I bought the thing--should not in any way cloud the
joy I should feel as I pony up $90 for the "upgrade" (which BG is providing
INSTEAD OF a fixpak, which before was something that was a free download).

That's right, folks, Win98-2nd Ed. costs you money, and it's a fixpak.

Thank you, B.G.!
