New User so don't blame me for my totally un-technical terms! At the moment using Windows 2000 instead of 98 My toshiba 1620 has got a ghost or something. My Accupoint mouse in the middle of the keyboard has taken to moving randomly up and down the screen and then will suddenly stop. I have a USB mouse to plug in and that seems to help it a little but as the mouse on the keyboard is the dominant mouse, always overrides it. I have tried uninstalling the mouse and everytime i reboot, it has reinstalled it. I have tried …

I created my virtual disk and all that good stuff. I inserted the CD and VMware detected it. I went through some installation questions like optimizing the disk ect. Then it told me to insert the boot disk into drive A:. I Inserted the boot disk and restarted VMware, and now it say "no bootable floppy, cd-rom, or hard disk". VMware doesn't even try to run the floppy. Please help, I am sure it is a simple problem, and I am just overlooking something. Note: I did download the files required for the boot disk. However, I am almost positive …

I'm working on a Compaq Presario 5150 running Windows 98. I can't copy and paste new files onto the desktop or any other part of the machine. I've tried dragging and dropping as a method of moving files but that doesn't work either. If I want to use a program from disk, I have to run it from the disk. Please help.

(This is my first post.) As the title suggests, I want to know of any security vulnerabilities there are in Windows 98. I have just installed Windows 98 on a virtual machine, and I wanted to see if I could exploit it somehow. The reason why I want to do it with 98 is because I know that not many people use it... so I can't really make anything dangerous for more popular OS's. Please don't think I'm trying to do anything bad, because I'm not. I want to learn this stuff because it's interesting to me and I think …

Hi. Im going to install Windows 98 Second Edition with 2.0.Net Framework and Internet Explorer 6.0. Only that, NO more. Is my computer fast if i do what? Will it be slow after 3 years? I only going to use IE 6.0. Not install or anything. Just surfing on facebook and hotmail. Will it be fast or slow on surfing on the net? My computer is a 766mb RAM 1,53 GHz Athlon XP CPU. Kinda old, but works great.

Hi, Thanks in advance to those who take time out to assist me. I am having an issue with my PC that starts with a Rundll32 error. Most threads I've read regarding the Rundll32 error indicat most are caused by virus's. I doubt that this the case with this pc as it hasn't been connected to the internet in over a year. This is a older pc that is runing Win 98 that I use for older legacy programs. It has been rock solid up to now and has very few application programs actually loaded on it. Today when I …

I you still want to use the application associated with this device file, try reinstalling that application to replace the missing file. vsdata95.vxd

Oh yes, I have checked everywhere for solution. Now very curious. I got it to where it would boot and display without all the display corruption ( many thousand stripes like a tv on horrible horiz.hold problem. Booted it 20 - 30 different times to test over & over. Worked until I packed it into the tote case, laid it aside a few days. Tried to boot again, back to square one. All the pretty colors and no actual way to view.

I accidently ( means I didn't know what I was doing) deleted stuff yesterday, and now am unable to boot up system.Whenever I try, it goes to safemode, which then tells me" registration/configuration error- Run SCANREG to correct". But then nothing happens and all I have is a gray screen with nothing on it and no way to run anything.I tried to use safemode and find other way in, and remember finding one message saying XMS cache problem. As you can tell, I'm very computer illiterate, and need step by step instructions on how to resolve this problem. The computer …

I am giving my HP Deskjet 3740 to neighbor with a really old Windows ME. It is up to date as far as Windows took Millenium. HP's site only has support for 2000 on up, not ME anymore, and I cannot find my old CD which did have 98 and ME drivers on it. So I need Drivers that will work on ME for the HP 3740. There must be either some generic drivers that would work or a site I could download the old ME drivers for it.. HP doesn't have them anymore. Any ideas or help is appreciated... …

Netstat display TOO brief to be useful - sorry about the spelling.... To try and find out about the times when my network card shows much activity in the absence of ME using the internet, I wanted to look at the the results from Netstat, but the first displays were short and after that they became instantaneous, i.e. just a flash. Is there a way of keeping Netstat's display on screen long enough to study the results ?

I have only just started using this feature. I have my monitor set to turn off after 5 minutes. After boot up this works ok for a while but fo no apparent reason stops. Going to Control Panel the setting is correct. I 'reset' and applying the 5 minutes again but it makes no difference. However, if I restart the PC it works OK until the next time, which may be a few hours or a day later. Any suggestions please.

I'm trying to get away from Windows, and maybe go to Linux...but I would like to experiment a bit, before I commit to a total change of OS's. Is it possible to run 2 different OS's on the same computer? If this is too vague, I can give you more info on what I am dealing with now...
