Ever since I loaded IE8 (because I was forced to I might add) the gmail account does not load properly and asks me to load the basic HTML for slow connections, (I'm using dialup), whereas before when I had IE6 the page always loaded properly. I tried turning off chat and turning off buzz but I'm still forced to use basic HTML

I'm not sure, why this is in Windows 98 forum.
We're talking Windows XP here, right?

IE8 is much more complicated tool, than IE6, so this mat be a reason, especially with dial-up connection.
See, if Firefox, or Chrome will give you same problem.

Some Gmail features have failed to load due to an Internet connectivity problem. If this problem persists, try reloading the page, using https, or using the basic HTML version. Learn More.
OK

It looks like your slow connection is the issue.
Did you try a different browser. I don't think, it'll matter, but it's a free try :)

He Broni,
getting back to the original topic re: windows 98 system, ever since i removed remanant of Norton via the removal tool you pointed me to i'm getting error messages:
"The program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down" this pops up shortly after windows opens.
In addition my compact disc play no longer works. The autorun feature does not recognize any cds in its tray, and when i go to my computer i see the cd there on the D Drive, click on it open it, both nothing will play on the cd and i get another error message, "The program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down" the details of which say EXPLORER caused a general protection fault in module LZEXPAND.dll at..." tried scandisk but that did not repair the problem just got stuck at some point
What can I do about this I never had it before and the D Drive always worked?

I do NOT consider the above as a polite reply.
I didn't pressure you to anything.

Once more, what is your Windows version? 98, or XP?
If 98, IE8 is not compatible with Windows 98.

Internet Explorer 8 is not compatible with Windows 98. I even don't know how you're able to install it.
The last version compatible with Win 98 is IE 6.
It's an outdated and unsecure browser.
That's another reason to use another browser, like Firefox, or Chrome.

You're getting the above errors, when doing what?

No No No Broni, that was another computer i was talking about, i thought that the Norton removal tool you pointed me to fixed my windows 98se computer but it just got rid of the norton antivirus program and gave me a new problem, the computer below has IE6 not IE8 and now keeps giving me the following error message:

"The program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down" this pops up shortly after windows 98 opens.
In addition my compact disc play no longer works.

"The program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down" this pops up shortly after windows 98 opens.

Does it say, which program?

It's been years, since I used Windows 98, so I'm not sure, if I'll be able to help you out here.
