I hadn't but I have now and regret to report that it's still crashing. IE version is IE 6 SP1 - not that we actually use it, but it's there. I think that when I get a bit of time I will completely wipe the system and start over with a clean install of 98se, SP3, KernelEx and Revolutions Pack. Does it matter which order I do them in?

Before you do a clean install, try reinstallin IE 6 first.
Install the SP3 first, then IE 6. I don't use KernelEx and Revolutions Pack, so thats up to you.
Make sure you use the version with the IE 6 files and not 5.

How about maybe you or someone like rloew provide the best fix and I'll add it to the SP.
I will also downgrade mlang.dll. I don't use IE @ all, only the core files. Thanks for your input.


OK, here's how to get the fully patched IO.SYS :

1. Start with the KB311561 (2001/12/1) version of IO.SYS.
2. Apply my version of Steven Saunderson's IO.SYS patches : http://www.geocities...au/general.html
3. Apply rloew's IO.SYS patch : http://www.msfn.org/...post__p__929801

It's fairly straightforward, however, let me know if you need the actual patched file and I'll upload it somewhere.

Joe.

Most recent updates 12-05-11
Added rloew complete IO.SYS patch that supersedes all previous patches. It addresses offset in File

It addresses Partition offset bugs. My Patched KERNEL32.DLL addresses File offsets.

KERNEL32.DLL 4.10.2225 RRL
Added Patched CDFS.VXD rloew unique patch script
Added Patched IO.SYS rloew unique patch script

"Unique patch script" is not very descriptive and won't reflect the change to IO.SYS after the next update replaces the change notice at the beginning of the Post.
I suggest:

KERNEL32.DLL 4.10.2225 rloew 2GB Patch
Added Patched CDFS.VXD rloew 2GB Patch
Added Patched IO.SYS rloew full Partition Patch
Ye who enter my domain. Beware! Lest you become educated in the mysteries of the universe and suffer forever from the desire to know more.

I'm totally new to this site, so please bear with me.

I just formatted my old PC and reinstalled Windows 98se.
I just found out that Windows Update v4 is no longer supported by MS.


If I download Gape's/PROBLEMCHYLD's Unofficial 98 SE Service Pack 3
will it have all the updates I need or do I need to go to the Microsoft Download Center and download updates.


I already know that DirectX 9.0c and Internet Explorer 6 are not part of Gape's/PROBLEMCHYLD's pack. But besides DirectX 9.0c and IE6, do I need to download anything else from the Microsoft Website??

If all you want is to have your basic system up to date, then you're all set. Whether or not you need anything else from Microsoft is up to you, such as Windows Media Player 9 or .NET Framework.

Actually, all you need can be found at the admittedly overwhelming but amazingly rich MDGx domain.

This unofficial service pack for w98se already contains all official microsoft updates, so you don't need to download anything from them.
On top of that it contains unofficial updates which are newer than the official ones.

I'm not even sure that you still can download w98 related material from microsoft. If you can, it means they forgot to delete it from their server.

Why is Norton Security flagging the file? It says its found a medium security risk.

Norton Security automatically deletes the file after download - This is what Norton Security states when I download the file.

This file risk is medium.
Threat type: Insight Network Threat. There are many indications that this file is untrustworthy and therefore not safe.

False positive, of course!
These reputation-based detections will flag almost anything not hugely popular.
You'll probably get such detections from almost any unofficial update.

An exe file which purpose is to deeply modify your operating system qualifies for "medium risk" indeed. ;)
Thought Norton shouldn't delete it.

Disable Norton the time you do the update.

Don't know which one you downloaded OR what version of Norton you're using, but I just downloaded (using FlashGet, as the "direct download" was incomplete) the first package, "un-zipped" it and ran a scan (SAV v10) and it found nothing.

You'll have to create a separate folder, tell Norton to EXCLUDE the folder, turn Norton OFF, download the file to that folder, then re-enable Norton. Also Disable Norton when installing.

Definitely a false-positive from your version of Norton. WWW-search on that reveals a LOT of false-positives.

Someday the tyrants will be unthroned... Jason "Jay" Chasteen; RIP, bro!
