I've never used KernelEx before, but I gather that it will fix this.
I'm slightly wary of installing beta versions, but I have been told that a new version 4.5 Beta 3, is coming soon.
Anyone any idea how "soon"?
Should I wait for it?
Also if I decide to go with the final of 4.0 rather than install a beta, does anyone know if this will this also fix my problem?
Yes, 4.0 Final 2 is enough to run Opera 10.60 (but not Flash 10.1). KernelEx is the most painless install/uninstall ever; they designed it to be ridiculously safe considering the file it modifies. I can't say for 4.5 (I'm waiting for beta 3), but I imagine it's just as simple as 4.0.
Even if you don't use (practically) any other unofficial patches to 98SE, KernelEx (4.0+) and RP9 are both simple, safe and powerful; I don't really know why anyone WOULDN'T use them (even if you don't use any other unofficial patches).
Personally, for KernelEx, I held out until they added the ''off by default for all programs'' option. After that, I installed it and love it. For the few programs I have that won't work without KernelEx, I turn it on for them (VLC, Opera 10.60, El Dorado), and every single other program runs just as it normally would on 98SE, no issues.
