Win98SE and IE updates

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win98.gen_discussion (More info?)

Following on from the recent discussions, could someone with an
up-to-date Win98SE box please run msinfo32.exe and indicate which of
the many updates have been installed? Are there any other OS updates
which msinfo32 does not detect? I would also be grateful for a list of
the updates appearing in IE's Help->About window. TIA.

    Dear Frank,

    I don't have 98 anymore so I can't help you with that.
    But, for listing fixes installed I have found this to be the best.

    Belarc Advisor:
    http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html

    It lists pretty much everything and then some.

    Click on the following link, copy the results to your clipboard and paste it
    into a reply to this thread: http://aumha.org/mydetail.htm

    Example:
    <paste>
    Browser Name: Microsoft Internet Explorer ver. 6.0

    Browser & OS: (Major & Minor Version Information)
    4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)
    ;SP2;

    Screen Resolution: 1024 x 768
    Color Depth: undefined
    Java Enabled: true
    </paste>

    Best to rely on Windows Update for critical updates your machine should have
    rather than picking & choosing ones you /think/ it needs.

    There's a mess of regular criticals, both at the corporate site
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows98/downloads/corporate.asp

    & at...
    http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/catalog/en/default.asp
    ...., which also can be got by...
    (1) "START button, Windows Update".
    (2) Click "Personalize..." in left pane & then check "Display the
    link..." in right pane.
    (3) Click "Windows Update Catalog" in left pane, which is now under "See
    Also". (Perhaps you need to leave & re-enter the site to see it.)
    (4) Click "Find Updates..." in right pane.
    (5) Select OS in window & click "Search".
    (6) Select "Critical Updates...".

    You must decide which apply to your computer, when you take them that
    way. And the literature may not be perfectly clear about it. Perhaps, if
    you've done it once letting the site decide, you may now...

    "START, Find, F/F, 'Windows Update.log'". (Use double quotes around that
    name.) Click it for a possible clue inside. Otherwise...
