Well, I use windows 98 and now I have this message that the microsoft will not support windows 98 with critical updates anymore
For one thing, my computer suits me just fine and I'd have a hard time updating to XP on this old system, probably having to get a new video card, etc. It would just be easier to buy a new dell desktop.
Having said that, I do not want to plunk down $750.00 for a new system when my old system works great still for my purposes which are basically e-mail and surfing the web.
Do I need to be concerned about hackers having more easy availability to my system now? I run several programs like AdAware SE, SpywareBlaster, AVG free and Tune-Up utilities and Registry Repair.
Would anyone recommend changing to Firefox as my default browser? I personally hate firewalls, but I would consider one if needed.
So, the bottom line is:
Is it still safe to run Windows 98 SE without having access to Microsoft's critical updates and do I have any viable alternatives to Microsoft?
