Your CPU load is at 100%. I wold be concerned about a virus or lots of spyware.

 

Virus scan as second opinion ( would not suggest use the same on-line scan as you have a/v software running). Please remember to turn off your A/V software before running any of these scans.

jenjen1018,

 

If you've got a 2gig machine with 256mb RAM and it scores worse than this one, I would highly suggest that you start another thread and post a test. Maybe we can help you out too. ;)

Most of those Running Programs, listed in purple & gray in your Test Details can be disabled from running at Startup. MSN Messenger has an option to run at Startup it its Options/Preferences menu. Don't know about M$ Works Update. Click on each one of them to find out more about them, and go here to reference the others:

Windows 98 can only handle 512mb of RAM, adding more memory is always good, but 256mb should be OK with 98.

 

That Cleanup! program WK mentioned should work well for you. On 98, it will prompt you to reboot so it can finish its job. Been using Cleanup! for a long time with no ill effects. Just use the Standard cleanup (default).

 

Then Defrag! ;) -kd5-

My brother runs 1MB of memory on his Win98SE box, and I think Ike is also running 1MB or 768. 98 is rated to handle up to 1MB, at least that's what the book for my PC says. I think that's another old wives tale, like 98 not "Playing well" with IE6. I've been doing that for years...

 

Also, if you are using Real Player Update, that is know spyware and should be removed. Run Adaware and Spybot S&D

mouse mentioned that in order for 98 to handle more than 512mb of RAM, you have to trick it into accepting more. I have no idea what that trick is, so I went by what is a commonly accepted rule of thumb. If anyone knows the trick you would use to get 98 to accept more than 512mb of RAM, I hope they'll post it here... -kd5-

Kd5, don't mremember the registry tweaks off hand, but got an 845m chipset, that when the intel mobo drivers were run, configured itself automatically (was suprised) for the 1 gig ram.

KD5, I don't know the tweak either, I'll have to check with my brother. Or, maybe Ike will chime in and tell us how he runs it so smoothly. I'm only using 256mb myself. If it's easy to tweak, I might add more to...:P

Your motherboard may handle the 3gb of RAM, but Windows 98 may not. As was previously posted, it has been tried successfully. Without the tweak though, it's a gamble... -kd5-
