I have the XP dual-boot setup with Win98se on the C:drive and XP on the G: drive (that's just the way the XP installation named the drives). Everything is great performance-wise with both operating systems. I use XP for almost everything except a few games, NERO, and Kodak software.

Today, I upgraded my copy of Ad-Aware SE Personal to the new version (1.04). During installation it uninstalls any previous version. Installation went fine. I then decided to upgrade Ad-Aware on my Win98se platform so I booted into 98 and noticed that the desktop icon for Ad-Aware was missing. I went to "Add/Remove Programs" in Control Panel and it was listed but when I tried to uninstall it could not find necessary file but it let me remove the item from the list of programs. I went ahead with installation of the new version and all works fine.

Question: Why did an installation under XP affect a program in Windows98se?
(my partitions are 1. Win98se, 2. primary partition for BootItNG, 3. XP (primary partition), 4. Extended partion w/2 volumes (D: & E:). I have an internal zip drive, CDRW & DVDRW. (see my signature)
