Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have windows me 98 and I can not download mircosoft words or update the computer. I know in the end I will have to buy a disk to update the computer. I was wondering if there is anything else I can because I just paid an arm and a leg to get this computer to work. - Cassandra, Illinois


Answers :

I'm very sorry to tell you, but anything below Windows 2000 is no longer supported.

Microsoft announced back in July 11th 2006, that they will no longer support them.

I would highly recommend getting a new computer. JUST THE TOWER. You can still use your mouse, keyboard, monitor, speakers.

If your computer came with windows 98, it is very old. If you try and upgrade your operating system to xp, your system will run very slow unless you upgrade your hardware. And its really not worth it.

Virus? My computer has been sending error messages that I have a potential virus threat and provides virus protection options. WHen I select them it takes me to an advertiser page. Also, my wallpaper is changes and will not change back. When I select ctr -alt- dlt a message appears basically stating that the administrator has blocked this option. Finally, it will not let me download any virus removers and I believe the one I have is outdated because it doesn't find this virus. What else can I do


Firstly, the most important thing you can do is keep up-to-date virus protection-either a paid program like "Mcafee" or a free version, (which I'm not sold on but better than nothing)like AVG.....available here:http://free.avg.com/download-avg- ... Gateway 450SX4 Notebook
