Why don't you add /5.50.4807.2300 versions browselc.dll/browseui.dll

since it fixes the deleting large file bug.

not going to happen. the "delete large files bug" only happens in IE6 and not IE 5.01/5.5. AND not everyone uses IE 6. adding those files could break IE 5.01 for some Win98se users who use IE 5.01 [not IE 5.5 or IE 6].

This new service pack will update Win98 files only, or will update IE too? Will there be one separate unofficial service pack for each ver of IE?

I would have a solution for this:

Since Windows 98 Upgrade Pack contains the patch against

"pause or hanging on using IE6 with Win98se" and it is protected to only install if this

version of IE exists there would be no conflict.

We could use my fix but I suggest not to include an IE6 fix if it is recommend not to have it installed .

OK B2T and B2 other fixes and patches :D .

Is it maybe possbile for KERNEL32.DLL 4.10.2225 that we became

written here

isn't even 4.10.2225 ?

MS site for Q320798 says something like:

26-Apr-2002 19:53 4.10.2225 479,232 Kernel32.dll Windows 98 Second Edition
But file has this :
3. April 2002, 16:45 4.10.2225 478.720 Kernel32.dll Windows 98 Second Edition

So date and file size aren't correct.

Maybe it was only a 4.10.2224 kernel32.dll with changed version number :

Remember 4.10.2224 also has size of 478.720

Did you recognize the thing with filesize and date before?

But maybe I'm just :wacko: a bit crazy.

320798 is Korean only. Not English. That's why 4.10.2225 is different.

Actually, Q320798 fixes a bug that involves Korean web pages + DOCs, but the DLL itself is for English editions of 98FE/98SE [uS + UK].

Check it out:

* Microsoft Windows 98/98 SE Slow Office DOCs + Korean HTML Pages KERNEL32.DLL

(4.10.2001 for Win98/98 SP1 + 4.10.2225 for Win98 SE) Fix:

http://support.microsoft.com/?id=320798

Direct download [382 KB, English]:

http://www.mdgx.com/files/Q320798.EXE

Maybe we should consider that the discrepancy between file date + file size might be a M$ mistake [example: posted a new version of the patch, but forgot to update the web page]?!

They are known to make such mistakes in other similar cases.

http://support.microsoft.com/?id=320798 states:

The Korean version of this fix should have the following file attributes or later:

Date		 Time   Version	  Size	 File name	 Operating system
------------------------------------------------------------------------
26-Apr-2002 19:55 4.10.0.2001 477,184 Kernel32.dll Windows 98
26-Apr-2002 19:53 4.10.0.2225 479,232 Kernel32.dll Windows 98
Second Edition

It is usual that localized files have newer date/time than English ones.

The 320798 hotfix is genuine from Microsoft, you can verify it by checking the digital signature of the 320798USA8.EXE file that is available from MDGx site as Q320798.exe. You can also see that the package was digitally signed by Microsoft on April 6th, 2002.

The original file on the Microsoft web server is here: http://hotfixv4.microsoft.com/Windows%2098...NU_i386_zip.exe and the password is QI%ib3+* - if you want to be sure that you have really the original version ofthis fix.

@Petr: did you get that link recently or not? If so, how much after the EOL date can you request fixes for software?

I was told that there is no restriction, I can request hotfixes for Windows 95 or even Windows 3.1.

I think if possible later "Copy2Gb by LLXX " should be included too.

you can also use File Manager [winfile.exe] to work around the problem and just delete the large number of files from within File Manager instead of Windows Explorer. WinFile does not hang when removing a very large number of files from there. sure, Winfile does not understand long filenames but there is an add-on called FMLFNs that provides long filename support for Win9xME's File Manager applet. Get FMLFNs here:

I just tried request 279177 for IE 5.5 SP2 and was told that I couldn't as IE 5.5 SP2 was out of support. Could you please try requesting that hotfix as well?

our local US M$ support is no longer offering hotfixes for products that are "out of support"

note to Petr: thanx for your latest PM but at least pick up the pace and send me whatever Win95 hotfixes you get ASAP

you need to ask Gape, Marius '95. As Gape stated on his 98se SP page, it will only provide IE updates to embedded IE 5.0 originally included in Win98se. It will NOT provide IE updates for IE 5.5 & IE 6.0.

quote from his page-

It contains only operating system updates. It does NOT contain Internet Explorer 6, DirectX 9, Media Player 9 and their updates.
