Hi, I wonder if there are any reader downloads available for Win98SE.

My parents have an old computer, when the click on some links there is only a small symbol, a tiny box containing a red square, a blue triangle & a green circle.

On this webpage for example, when I click on the "application" or the "guide", I only get that symbol.

I can still click on the HTML link, that works


I think it might be a PDF file, does Adobe no longer support Win 98?

Of course they do. Any version below 7.0 will work on Win98SE, I use 6.0. :thumbsup:
