Unfortunately Windows 98 is obsolete software. It's not supported by Microsoft any longer, more and more programs will not run under it, Internet Explorer 6 is full of security holes, the alternative web browsers now no longer support it, and anti-virus software for 98 is effectively non-existant.

Very soon a point will come where nothing will work under Windows 98. Then access to software and internet sites will require a current generation web browser to view, and these only work under current generation operating systems - XP, Vista or later Windows 7.

The next incarnation of the Internet will require at a minimum XP, or preferably Vista or Windows 7, even just to connect to the Internet never mind surf pages. Many sites under old versions of Internet Explorer do not work at all.
