I downloaded the registrybooster file to try and boost the speed of my old puter, but when I try to ecexute it I get the following: "This program cannot be installed on a server edition of windows"
Can anybody help me?

The download version I found said it works with 2000/XP and Vista. If it's the same thing, and since you posted in the windows 98 forum I'm guessing you are using windows 98 and it won't work in 98... :thumbsup:

Thanks, Wildabeast.
I went back and saw indeed that it needs a newer version of Windows to work.
Is there anything that might speed up my Windows 98 computer?

Here's a MSFT link to Make Windows go faster! for 98. It's been a while now for me but I remember there are some good things in there.
