Legacy Files

This page is for listing files, fixes, and general info on older hardware and software I’ve used.

I have some older systems that don’t run the latest software very well. On these systems, Windows 98 SE is the OS of choice.


Files I’ve used under Windows 98 SE:

win98_activex_fix.zip (438K) ActiveX install fix. KB912812 update in April of 2006 disabled ActiveX installs under Windows 98. Things like Office Update, Macromedia Flash, and Microsoft Gaming Zone use ActiveX to install.

ie6fix.zip (383K) Fix for Windows/Explorer hangs when moving/deleting a larger number of files (such as emptying the Recycle Bin).

ie6fix_files.zip (408K) The same IE6 Explorer fix as above, but packaged differently.

Native USB Support Native support for many USB devices (such as thumb drives) under Windows 98SE.

ps2_mouse.zip (13K) PS/2 mouse drivers. 3 button support and higher refresh (smoother movement).

Process Explorer 11.11, Autoruns 9.13, – last versions to run under Windows 9x (98SE and Me).
