OTL tools - last Win 98 ver?

My computer is an old PentPro Win98SE PC. (Yes, I have to replace it, but unfortunately it can't be soon.)
I downloaded the actual version 3.2.31 of OTL (and OTH) as forum text says it works on Win98 (the tutorial says it doesn't). Well, worse was true - OTL did not work, complaining on unregistered class and performing "illegal operations"...

Please tell me:
- Which is the last version of Oldtimer's List-It (and the other tools) that will work reliably under Win98SE. I guess there is a "Last Win9xME pack" frozen somewhere? (Hope it makes compatible reports so that experienced geeks could help with advice.)
- And where can I find those old Win98 versions for download?

Sorry to make you go so far back in time.

No idea about the older versions of OTL but I wouldn't use them anyway.

You could certainly run HijackThis with Win98 so I would start with that.


This the latest version. If it doesn't want to work then try

You might try DDS by SuBs:
Don't know if it will work or not but if it works it will give more info than HJT.

Please download DDS from http://download.blee...om/sUBs/dds.com or http://download.blee...om/sUBs/dds.scr
and save it to your desktop.

* Disable any script blocking protection
* Double click dds.pif to run the tool.
* When done, two DDS.txt's will open.
* Save both reports to your desktop.
