  1. jus' luvin' all this work and effort in this package....... but methinks i do have a wish.... in the windows restart drop down menu is it possible to 'see' RESTART IN SAFE MODE..... as opposed to the F8 key or using meconfig...???
  2. much appreciated, as always.......................
  3. with all the positives that the 98SE2ME has done for my particular unit, a 1.4ghz.......... would it be possible to install a DVD-RW that stated for an XP/2000 OS???
  4. Is it possible with the nice package of 98SE2ME to insert a DVD-RW that says it is for XP/2000???? Scratching my head looking at a SONY DRU-810A.........
  5. Any shortcut to a file [not necessarily system or folder shortcut] that does not find its target file is disabled, and displays a generic icon, to let you know that you need to repair it or delete it.For example, create a new shortcut on your desktop to winfile.exe, found in %windir% [usually C:\WINDOWS]. Then move winfile.exe to any other directory. You will notice that after u restart Windows, or after you refresh/delete/recreate %windir%\ShellIconCache, or after you press F5 on the desktop, the winfile icon will show as a generic icon, represented by whichever shell32.dll icon is set on your computer for generic/non-existant/disabled/invalid file/folder shortcuts. Then if u move winfile.exe back to %windir%, the icon should "fix" itself upon next restart, F5, shelliconcache repair/recreation. Hope this helps. welllllllll i knew if it annoyed me enuf and i poked around enuf i would come up with 'ungreying' my logitech scanner icon. dug into symantec's tech d-base and came up with some added lines in the win'ini............ : Manually add the printer settings to the Win.ini 1. Click Start, and then click Run. 2. Type msconfig and then click OK. 3. Click the Win.ini tab. 4. Double-click the [Devices] entry. 5. Click New, and then add these two lines of text: WinFax=WINFAX,FaxModem: WinFax (Photo Quality)=WINFAXHQ,FaxModem: 6. Double-click the [PrinterPorts] entry. 7. Click New, and then add these two lines of text: WinFax=WINFAX,FaxModem:,15,45 WinFax (Photo Quality)=WINFAXHQ,FaxModem:,15,45 8. Click OK, and then click Yes when prompted to restart the computer. done........ i'm my own hero......
  6. sincerely appreciate the hospitable response......... without getting into the software(s) can you possibly give me an example of a greyed out button shortcut, albeit in the registry or system folder??? i can probably take it from there and pillage my way through, living up to my name......... thanx again............
  7. one more time for me.... both my machines are identical with all the 98se/me upgrades running nicely...... one machine is a 300mhz gateway the other a 1.4ghz gateway........both with identical symantec systemworks and internet security software as well as their winfax 10.0....... and both machines have the Logitech Pagescan colorscan 3.0 imageware software originally a win95OS product. i noticed after all the 98se/me upgrades that the 300mhz puter's Logitech control center's fax icon was greyed out and said it could not detect a fax program. i went as far as clearing ALL traces of symantec and logitech, incl. the registry and system files and 'clean installing' the softwares. same thing. it can 'scan and send' but the icon is forever greyed. the 1.4ghz is fine. i know i'm overlooking something. can i impose on your hospitality once more????
  8. consider me updated........ w/gratitude......... tweak or script......... my 98se has never run better............ and i consider the 2nd half of your response a gift............ thank you again.................
  9. always appreciative of all that you and the contributors do........... don't know if you saw my post edit p.s. or i'm in the wrong thread on this wish......... what about combing the date/time and regional settings into one .cpl on any new mods?????
  10. that was tooooooooooooo easy........... never thought of checking the reg. settings............. nothing there.....lol.............. thanks again........ p.s. - wishlist........ whattabout combining the date/time & regional setting objects in the control panel????? possibly tab oriented?
  11. just noticed an abberration on one of my 98me machines........... no clock in the tray..... might not have anything to do with the upgrades. right click where it's supposed to be and the clock menu shows........ the box is checked for the clock to be there, but when i uncheck the box the space for the clock disappears...... lol.......... no am/pm in my documents either....... date/time is in control panel, totally functional......... clue? appreciate the assist........
  12. already on to that.......... thanks for the reply but if you could lead me to the registry or ini area that i could reconfigure that particular tray area as it also encloses the task scheduler so i can 'play' with it............ BTW 4+ days and no blue screen since the 98seMe upgrades................. BOTH machines.........
  13. all is well.............. but i do have one question/request...... i also use a freeware aka TclockEx in my clock tray....... and i have noticed since all the mods that it tends to resize itself......... is there anything on your site or mod that i can 'fix' the sizing on that icon area.......???? thank you again......
  14. all is well............ glad i found the correction quicker than the cause....... possibly the 98se updates may have put a few issues in default state..... but my order of updating is whenever there is a 98se update i always follow thru with a re-install of option 3 and 1 of the 98seMe............ no clue as to why my pooters went on a 12 hour cycle, but if it occurs again i will take notes............. lol............
  15. double high 5's on all this work....... no problems at all upgrading as long as the original 98SE unit is 'tight'....... i have two on my desk......... one a 300mhz gateway and a 1.4ghz to its right....... i run the 1.4 for 3 days before i upgrade the other one...... i seem to have lost my blue screen syndrome.....lol........ one question-------- i see that the msdos.sys file is totally changed from the original 98se........... can it be put back in............ to what advantage/disadvantage.......?????? p.s........... coincidental or a bug????? i dunno.......... but i just discovered that my regional clock settings were wiped out when i saw that my antivirus was running 2x per scheduled run and when i double checked the scan program there was no a.m. or p.m. finally went into the control panel regional settings and all's well............ still the dbbl hi 5................
