The largest Internet access services provider in poland is TP. Their main offer is ADSL with dynamic IP. The TP keeps track of what IP was used by whom in what time period, so it is possible to track a "villain" down and prosecute accordingly. The TP has a right to disconnect the user violating the law, as well. By knowing the IP used it should be possible to track down the provider and perhaps the country region, as TP does use different IP ranges for them.
Perhaps, an official investigation will be the most effective tool to get the "punk" stopped.

Perhaps I could be of some assistance with legal actions against the attacker. But, the first thing to do would be to find out what company is the the Internet access service provider of the attacker.

There is another version of the Windows 98 Unofficial Service Pack made by a small group of polish people (I would rather say teenagers because of their language habbits). The core of their distribution is the good old USP 2.1 from Gape. They added some themes, utilities and made some improvements through resource editing. Then presented their creation as USP 4.x
So, they are Windows 98 fans, as well. But, they do not like the MSFN, as their creation got significant amount of bad opinions here.
The term "Windows 98 USP wars" is my own name of the USP related flame war. Apparently, the changes introduced in the "new" polish USP edition were not considered as significanly usable by the majority of the local community. The Gape refused to include the changes in his package, as well. The flame war was suppressed by moderators, as far as I remember.

After posting a few comments about Unofficial Service Pack Plus, I tried to keep away from the flames. There was no point in arguing with people preferring quantity over the quality, I believe.
