Most of us that run especially Win98SE dread going to the Windows Update Website and getting the suggested updates because some of them always crash your machine, now if you've never ran into this issue then good for you!!! Have a good day and Goodbye, I'm not posting this for a collection of smartass comments, but if you have run into this issue, then the following tip is for you.
<b><font color=green>Get all of your updates, let the download and install complete, but do not allow the Windows Update Website to do the restart of your computer, cancel the request to restart, close the Website, make sure all desktop windows are closed, and restart your computer yourself, it will not crash.</font color=green></b>
No I haven't tried that, I've got a broadband connection and can get all the updates in just a few minutes, so I really don't see the need, but if I was still on dial-up I'd definitely take that route.
Ahh...I am on a blistering 45.2 Kbps dialup. Gotta make me downloads count..heh heh.. One thing that helps is the free Security Update CD that MS sent me...has updates through Feb. 2004 for XP, ME, 2000Pro, 98SE, and 98 which leaves me with not nearly as many to get from their site.
