Just a backup in case the main list I constantly edit becomes corrupt. :thumbup

Hey galahs, why don't you just keep your edit text in two local text files and update those.

Just edit your first two posts and copy all text to the local file.

Then you can edit it offline and just copy and paste it into the edit windows!

Might be worth a go... :P

Yeah not a bad idea.

I'm actually going to modify the lists completely so I thought I'd do an online backup before the major change.

Dunno if I'll find the time to add useful apps to the list, however I'd like to mention that there are certain applications that do not work (at all, or work with limitations/errors/crashes/etc.) on a vanilla Win98SE, but they do work after system upgrades, provided by (un)official patches/packages; most important of them being KernelEx, which for example, allows me to run KMPlayer (which would otherwise throw a C++ error message box) and allows the use of Media library in QMP beta119.

Considering this, it may be a good idea to compile a list of applications and their versions that would run on such a fully patched system, together with the required upgrades for each of them. That would be hard work, I know, but it has already been requested so many times in the KernelEx thread and I thought it might be the right time to start building such information now.

OK, to contribute a little to this thread, I'll add a few apps that I use and think are noteworthy:

- ONGD - SHAR - Total Commander --> http://www.ghisler.com

- ONGD - FREE - SlimBrowser --> http://www.flashpeak.com/sbrowser/

- LAST - FREE - JWPce 1.50 --> http://www.physics.ucla.edu/~grosenth/jwpce.html

- ONGD - FREE/$$$$ - BSPlayer 2.x (Pro) --> http://www.bsplayer.com/en/bs.player/home/

To save confusion, a list of software that works after installing the KernelEX upgrade should be listed on the first page of the KernelEX thread.

I wasn't only referring to KernelEx, but to other system upgrades, such as RichEdit, gdi.exe/gdi32.dll, user.exe/user32.dll, msvcp71.dll/msvcr71.dll (VC2003 runtime), msvcp80.dll/msvcr80.dll (VC2005 runtime that needs installation; doesn't work by only copying those 2 dlls to the %system% folder) and similar. Heck, some applications may not work (correctly) even if gdiplus.dll is missing. Not to mention others that depend on unicows.dll...

I haven't seen my favorites security software around here, so I think it's time to post instead of reading:

Best Firewall around:

LAST - FREE- Jetico v1

http://www.jetico.com/jpfirewall.htm

Best HIPS around:

LAST - FREE - System Safety Monitor 2.0.8.583

http://www.syssafety.com/

Both of them working flawlessy on my WinME box (Celeron 650Mhz, 246 MB RAM)

In my opinion, combined together, they form the strongest and lightest security suite available on 9x Systems.

To be honest, I never used any firewall or resident antivirus on my 98SE system, and I'm still alive and kickin'. No router or any other fancy stuff.

The only protection I've ever used was Ad-Aware (1.06 R1 being the latest usable on Win9x) and Spyware Blaster, combined with occasional scans from Trend Micro's Sysclean Package (requires the pattern signature package), only when I suspected something fishy.

Opps! :blushing: A correction to my correction (forgot to highlight the changes! D'oh!) - also some other changes:

Others > move to a new Connectivity section:

LAST - $$$$ - SmithMicro HotFax MessageCenter 5.0.1 - - - http://www.smithmicro.com/

Others > move to Windows Utilities (note spelling!) section:

LAST - $$$$ - SmithMicro CheckIt Diagnostics 7.1.1.5 - - - http://www.smithmicro.com/

Others > move to Programming section:

ONGD - FREE - ActiveState ActivePerl 5.8.8.822 - - - http://www.activestate.com/Products/activeperl

Along with ActivePerl, can you add to Programming section the Perl Toolkit (from earlier post):

ONGD - FREE - Prima Perl Toolkit 1.23 - - - http://www.prima.eu.org/

You could add to a new Connectivity section the following (from earlier post):

LAST - FREE - Microsoft ActiveSync 3.8 (3.8.0.5004) - - - http://www.hpcfactor.com/support/syncsoft/activesync/ (not posted at MS...)

Works nicely with Pre-Windows Mobile 5.0 devices like 2000, 2002, 2003, 2003SE and still does wireless sync! ActiveSync 4+ is a major step backwards!

In Windows Utilities section (from earlier post):

LAST - $$$$ - Symantec Norton SystemWorks 2005 8.03 (2005.8.3.15) - - - http://www.symantec.com

galahs, you may want to put a note for those who want to locate older $$$$ software to buy, that searching places like amazon.com and others, will show second hand and old stock software. Auction sites are also useful but are often plagued with sophisticated piracy!

Rock on Windows 98SE! :hello:

One little remark, Xnview is not a multimedia tool, it's a picture viewer/converter just like Irfanview. It should be listed there.
