Thank you very much "VanguardLH" for your link
I could use it to install IE6 by transfering the file with a USB key (from
my Vista) and Internet Explorer 6 now works fine on the W98 machine!
I did all the Windows Updates with no problems, no more "illegal operation"
I am now in the process of getting Adobe Flash Player 9, but for some
unknown reason I can not access www.adobe.com
I had the same access problem for getting Adobe Reader 6.0, but I found a
direct link just like you gave me and I got it installed OK.
Hopefully I will find a similar solution for the Flash Player and/or the
reason of the "Page can not be displayed" with adobe.com
I know this W98 computer is minimal for web surfing... I don't use it, but
for the time being my sister is happy with it for emails, games and some web
surfing, until she gets a new computer!
Thanks everyone for your attention,
