And a lot less problem than XP. I know it isn't PowerDVD,
I have never had a problem with it on any OS. I ran 98se until recently, even had it on a old, old, old laptop ( Pentium 150 Mhz, 80 Mb ram) and it ran fine, and not that slow. Used Sygate firewall, AVG anti-virus, Spybot S&D, and Adaware. I would guess AOL is the problem, it is very intrusive. The only thing an AOL disc is good for to most people is to hang in the garden to scare birds.
I recently purchased a new HP Presario with 512 RAM and gave my 98 Presario to my 5 year old granddaughter who is entering Kindergarten. Naturally it had to have an ISP, Spyware, Anti-virus, Firewall, and of course for a kid, a good DVD-Rom. I bumped the Ram to 128 and it is so slow its almost impossible to wait out. My question is how to stop some of the programs from booting up on the 98SE operating system? Some people have told me that AOL Spyware protection is causing the problem, others have said its Cyberlink Power DVD, (how do you get them to answer an e-mail) and still others I don't yet have enough RAM? Help!
