Format & re-install Win98SE

by chemrich / February 15, 2007 4:45 AM PST

I have Dell Dimension XPS D333 and would like to clean everything off the HD by reformating and then re-install Windows 98SE. I have my original Win98SE disk. My question is how will I get all the upgrades, patches and fixes I've received over the last 8 years?

Windows Update?

It still will supply Windows 98 users with such.

Were there others?

Microsoft still lets Windows 98 users get updates with Windows Update.

Maybe you asked something else but it wasn't clear.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
