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

Does anyone know what the last definitions update was that supported FAT for McAfee VirusScan Corporate 4.5.1 SP1? As it is no longer supported, or should that be the last scan engine to support FAT.

AFAIK, the current definitions and engine work in 98SE, although McAfee say it is 'unsupported' in 98SE...
I've used engine 5100 okay even 'unsupported' since all 5000 series engines are 'unsupported' in 98SE. Not sure about 5200 working though... Have not tested it...

If you have MDGx's 98SE2ME or Tihiy's RP installed then you will probably have problems with 4.5.1 SP1 since it does not work correctly in Windows Me and the two mentioned custom packs update enough of 98SE with Me files to be a problem with 4.5.1 SP1...

ONGD - FREE - SymmTime (Time synchronization and multiple timezones display)

*Note: the application is advertised as only working on NT4/2000/2003/XP, however I have it up and running without a glitch on my Win98SE. Please keep in mind though, that my system is manually upgraded and running on KernelEx (0.3.2a at the moment of posting).

Anyone able to test it on a vanilla Win98SE, please do and report the result. Unfortunately, currently I do not have this possibility.
