Quasi, I'm stumped. I've got Firefox on my computer, but am so used to using IE that I rarely if ever use Firefox. Nonetheless, Firefox is a wonderful browser and far less prone to letting in viruses.

What has me stumped is why would an alternative browser have any effect on running Windows '98? If the problem is his OS how will this help? Is it a matter of not being able to upgrade to the latest version of IE with Win '98? I think I'm getting to my real question here...albeit slowly. LOL Do you suspect the problem is really the browser?

Also, if they're ending support on Win '98 in July (and that was extended support) why not upgrade to XP? It's only $89.

What size is your hard drive and RAM, RO? If you got the computer in 2001, I think the processor should be okay. A couple of years ago I updated an old Gateway with an AMD 400 processor to XP. My biggest constraint was my hard drive size (only 10 gigs and quite filled with other programs) and a motherboard that couldn't handle more than 384 MB of RAM and my desire to run Media Player while posting and IMing at the same time.
