Old machines running legacy versions of popular operating systems are more common than you might think. In fact, across the world, it is estimated that hundreds of thousands of terminals are still running on Windows 98 in spite of the security concerns and lack of compatibility with modern software. It is an issue that can be broken down to “if it isn’t broken don’t fix it”.
The problem is that, for many users of those machines, it is common to find issues and bugs that make it, in fact, a broken system. Since this OS version isn’t only outdated but unsupported, it can be difficult to find fixes. Worry not, though, because with this Service Pack you can finally solve many of the main problems that affect old PCs.
As an unofficial release, you have to take some precautions and keep the original installation disk handy, create a backup of all the data on the computer as well as of the system files. Also keep in mind that if you use Internet Explorer, you can run into some issues too.
