  1. Help, registry corruption 98SE

    In my experience too, lost file fragments can be safely deleted. If scandisk made other corrections they will be detailed in the file scandisk.log and this will tell you precisely which files/folders are affected and what scandisk did with them. Most often all these will have been truncated or deleted as to correct filesystem errors and will need to be replaced if they are of some importance.
  2. I recently bought an Audiotrack Prodigy Cube and an Audinst HUD-mx1, they both run great under Windows ME.
  3. Is ME really that bad?

    ME is OK as I still use it as my sole desktop OS those days. This said I have a couple of laptops with Win 7 (I hate that OS) which I use only when I need to do one of the two things I can't do with ME and that is making a payment on the Paypal website or downloading something from Mega.
  4. I have 1.9.5-preview20150319 installed but git.exe itself doesn't seem to work in fact (I thought it did) as it uses pipes, maybe older version would, I am not sure. I use it as a bash/msys environment with added mintty.
  5. Research on AM3+ board and chipsets: Resume

    What's your USB audio device Ruthan? The fact it automatically installed under Windows 7 doesn't necessarily mean it doesn't use third party drivers.
  6. List of working Web Browsers on Windows 9x

    Best and only solution I know is to use Burp Suite Free Edition as a proxy and all SSL/TLS connection errors will be gone. Burp requires Java JRE 7 and to fully work also requires JRE cryptography jars to be updated to those supporting unlimited key strength. http://www.softpedia.com/get/Internet/Other-Internet-Related/Burp-Suite.shtml http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jce-7-download-432124.html
  7. Sorry, I am afraid I can't recommend anything as I only have a cheap Behringer UCA202 whose headphone out sounds like crap and a cheap Zishan Z1 which sounds very good but has latency issues, in addition none have the feature set you're looking for.
  8. Plenty of good to excellent Windows 98 compatible USB Audio devices listed here: http://www.thewelltemperedcomputer.com/HW/USB_Audio.htm 98 supports USB Audio 1.0 (UAC1) which is PCM up to 24bit and 96khz without need for third party drivers. USB Audio 2.0 (UAC2) is supported by Windows without third party drivers only in recent iterations of Windows 10, all lower Windows versions will need third party drivers to use those interfaces. I am not aware of any 9x compatible third party drivers for those. Some USB Audio 2.0 compliant devices can also work without third party drivers in legacy USB Audio 1.0 mode.
  9. Couple of Opera 12.02 questions

    1) In Application Data\Opera\OPERA\TOOLBAR\standard_toolbar.ini under [Document Toolbar.content] section. 2) Presumably you can drag tab out of Opera to regain a new working window. You can then close the original window and reopen tabs in in the new one. If you don't have a download you don't want to interrupt it's best to just close Opera and restart it IMO (provided it's configured to reopen all tabs that were opened when closing).
  10. It's been a while I didn't bother trying watching vids on youtube even with Flash as it's so slow. If I want to watch a vid I just open the url with youtube-dl and watch it from my desktop once it's downloaded.
  11. I have an msys version of git running fine here. I couldn't run more recent versions based on msys2 when I tried. Nice thing is I can use Mintty which gives me, command history, copy/paste, drag&drop, color scheme and 10.000 lines or more scrollback buffer, etc, you can't run command.com in it however but win95cmd.exe runs just fine in it as most console programs do, generic Mintty issues apply of course.
  12. Painfully Slow Network Speeds

    Maybe you just need to uninstall and reinstall TCP/IP, worked for me a while back.
  13. Well this won't eliminate your windows loading error as this is likely either hardware or driver problem, it just allows you to conveniently intercept boot mode options and manually change it to normal if you wish so, best you can do I am afraid.
  14. Better check your own tinfoil hat for leaks!
  15. msdos.sys is a simple text file indeed.
