Ok I realize my (responsibility) is to buy a new computer and stimulate the economy. Thing is I would rather buy some more ammo/take a training class on cold weather shooting. (cya now its gun related) Problem. This old thing has worked well but the disk defragmenter got (lost) ??? Was running slower and slower. So I tried "Disk Cleanup" and it died. Couldn't even get it going in "safe mode" (about limit of my knowledge) So I dig thru computer stuff and find the "wipe the hard drive/reset orig settings/reboot computer/remove all your info disk" I get that to load/run for half hr and now it (almost) works. I can (obviously) get online but few sites will work anymore. I can't even get to any updates which I know I need. The current (problem) is I get a "internet syntax error" on every new screen/anytime info changes. Top header "Internet Explorer script error" A (yield) sign with ! in it. "An error has occured with script on this page" "line 7" "Char 2528" "Error Syntax error" "Code 0" Then on bottom "Do you want to continue running scripts on this page? Yes/No" Anyone know how to get rid of that? (PITA to close it every time screen changes) Once that gets fixed (I hope) anyone know of site where I can get basic updates or even the current update if it will work with basic win98? I can't access most search engines/my e-mail, many sites and microsoft all I could get was they don't support 98 after 2006 (with most of page not showing) GT seems to work fine with only a few (strange) looking things. The quotes in replies the "box" goes all the way across the page but words stay in easy to read paragraphs. Thanks for any help.
