    I have a peculiar prob. I have a p4 1.7GHz 384MB ram PC with win xp nd win98 running in 2 partitions. Recently i'm facing the following probs in my win 98:
    1. when i rt. clk in any link in my IE6 window and select open in new window - it fail to opn. A blank window appears but address bar remain blank.- same thing happens with digit dvd/cd - when i click the view/install button - a blank window opens only but nothing happens.

    2. adobe reader 5 was running fine. when i try to install adobe reader 6 - it does not install.- now I dont have adobe at all.

    3.RealOne player was running fine - when I downloaded Realplayer10 and tried to install it - it first shows - uninstall component missing-old version can not be deleted. Add remove programme says the same thing about real player. when I manually deleted the folders and tried to install the new versions - it copies all files- places a desktop icon- but on clking the desktop icon noting happens . so now i dont have real player too.

    It seems the problem started after I installed and then removed some software - i forgot whichone.

    can any body help pl.

    Hmm, u should probably try registry cleaning [system mechanic, regvac]

    Then remove the dead add remove entries[ system mech.]
    And finally reinstall the software.

    While ur at it, please scan for spyware, just incase u dont usually do that,

    besta luck.

    i think u are having Win 98 First Edition,so the softwares are not installing.
    For viewing Digit CD/DVDs u should have latest Flash Player and DivX codecs.

    thanks all of u,for your kind atention. Pl. note
    1. I am using win98 SE. I can run digit cd/dvd fine but the problem starts when i clk. the view/install button on a software/movie link. a blank window of IE opens and nothing happens. I have flash player and latest divx codecs. they are running fine.

    2. Recently when I tried to install Norton Sys works - it gives an error message " VISUAL C++ runtime error! Unexpected programme termination.

    3. Blaze media pro generated error no:2605 while installing, and terminated.

    I am at my wits end. Please help.

    a few things to check

    - delete temp folder
    - run msconfig command and remove unnecessary programs from start up
    - try repair installation of ie 6 from add remove programs and choosing repair . else update to ie 6 sp1
    - u seem to have a lot of unsuccessful installations . try reinstalling older version of real player and uninstalling it and then install the new version . make sure u restart the system after each install/uninstall
    - run sfc command and restore files if asked for
    - are u running an antivirus s/w ? if u dont suspect a virus in ur system , try disabling antivirus while installing stuff
    - do u get any CAB file errors while installing software ?? try running scandisk in thorough for ur windows drive
    - u have mentioned 384 mb ram , are they the same make and speed ?

    do tell what the results are and how u fixed it when u do .

    a few tips , dont try to update to new version of anything as soon as u get it , try keeping win98 a little outdated , but functional in most cases . use xp for all the updated and flashy apps . as far as possible dont try to delete files and choose the uninstall option . try opera , u will love it , i open up 20 pages at a time at lightning speed in my old pc and it holds well
