Last Versions of Software for Windows 98SE

Recommended Posts

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.

Great idea

This thread is a very good idea as it allows us to list fully functional software for 98 and share our experiences of it. Some software will work on one machine and not on another due to configuration of the PC. As anyone thought of doing the same for 95 OSR2?.http://www.msfn.org/board/style_emoticons/default/whistling.gif

@ galahs:

I think you should group Microsoft IntelliPoint and Kensington under a new heading: Mouse Drivers

You did not yet add HDD Health, from my last post, here's some more info: its a S.M.A.R.T. monitor for HDDs

It's the LAST FREE v. 2.1 beta, build 159.

You also did not include PopUpKiller, but don't do it just yet, because I've just found out the project was resurrected and there is a new version I mean to test. About it, more later.

Keep on the great work! :thumbup This topic sure rocks, and you do too! :thumbup
