The Complete Windows 95, 98 & ME Troubleshooting Guide

Buy A New Computer.

No, I'm not being facetious. I'm actually curious how you're even online reading this article if you still have a computer running those operating systems, because they are antiquated and dangerous. Let's face it, your computer is well over a decade old. The average lifespan of a PC is 4 years. You've already managed to make it live 3 times longer than it should have. It doesn't owe you anything. Put it out to pasture, already. For less than $300 you can easily pick up a brand new system, that will put that anchor you call a computer to shame. I'm talking about netbooks. netbook.pngAny computer as old as your current one is either so slow as to be non-functional, or so loaded with security holes, malicious software and virus vulnerabilities as to be a danger not only to itself, but every computer in your home and everyone else on the Internet. Yes, you read that correctly. A computer that can be overtaken by a malicious entity, can then be used as a "zombie" to spread malicious software to others. So, you're actually putting others at risk. Do us all a favour and take that computer offline and get yourself a new one.
