Microsoft will stop providing almost all support for 98 / ME on the 11th of July 2006


This is for XP Home system requirements


This is for XP Pro system requirements


To check your current system

Download and install Everest Home Edition

Run the programme, click + next to computer then summary

Look on the right for the system details

Clean installs of a new OS can be less troublesome than installing with an upgrade CD
