    Help, I just did a download for MS updates (all that were recomended) for Windows 98 for what is probably the first time, (too old to remember), on my 98 compaq pressario. Now when I am on the internet my download is very sluggish. The left side of the toolbar at the bottoms says "done" but the blue status line on the right doen't go away. Any ideas.

    Thanks for the help

    Its possible that the updates did not install properly or that you have other problems that were brought out the the updates.

    Firstly, lets that a look at what running on your system. Download Hijackthis and use it to Scan and to Save a log. Then copy and paste that log into your next post.

    I can imagine that the sys is severly fragmented - Del temp file/IE temp files and empty the trash and Defrag
