Updates for W98

by TokioOkio / April 1, 2007 11:23 PM PDT

I was just reading the thread about updates for W98. Back in june 06, just before 98 officially went away. I downloaded all the updates. Now that I finally have my new hDD installed (Thaks to Kees Bakker and Bob Proffit), I need to install them, but I don't know how. In the top folderis a folder called software and an XML document which may be instructions but I can't read it well. Opening "software" leads to "ja" which probably means Japan and within it four more folders that start with com.microsoft.xxxxxxxx. Opening one of them and the next level finally appears a xxx.exe file and a "read Me". I tried clicking on one of the exe files but just now a note I couldn't read and no installation.

What to do?

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?
