Due to visit my mother in the next few days and to take a look at her laptop running windows 98. I am sure it will need a good defrag and cookie clean - not knowing 98 - can anyone recommend a good cleaner? I certainly know that her photos are in a mess - she download kodak software - but I only ever use Windows (XP) picures (My Pictures) which she too would like to do. Is this available on 98? Will I be able to view thumbnails in 98 - or it is just icons? Thanks in advance. SM :)
Wonderful advice - thank you. Know about CCleaner - and will try the DF7. It is easyshare - perhaps I'll leave it there then and remove My Pictures as Mum has photos everywhere! When Mum saves a photo sent to her on email can you specify where to put it on 98 or does it go automatically?
That depends on her email client - Easyshare will only manage images that have been saved or stored. Find out where emailed images are being stored/saved to and see if there is a `Monitor these folders` option in Easyshare where you can add it.
Dump the Easyshare and use Picasa for Windows 98 click here Picasa has a much better interface and allows a lot more manipulation with simple one click buttons. Whilst both are simple photo organisers Picasa is more intuitive.
Thanks - will look at that. Just done 98 windows update here - and gosh what a mess. Have now had problems with IE6 and Outlook Express. Finally removed IE6 - back to 5 but Outlook Express went with it back to 5 and now can't access any emails!!!
What problems with IE/OE6? Even if I were to suggest Firefox and Thunderbird the machine would be less secure without the `latest` IE updates. Make sure you keep a backup of the old OE files while trying to get it all going again. click here
