This is the sequel to "Rebuilding an old computer" in "Internal Hardware".
Have it running with W98se, unofficial SP3.53(U98sesp3.exe), motherboard drivers(ex GIGABYTE support/downloads) and generic USB driver package(Nusb33e.exe) all apparently loaded and working (did not have to choose a program,).
Now attempting to install firewall, AV and browser.
Not able to open 'clamwin-0.99.1-setup.exe', 'tpfirewall209.zip' or 'OperaSetup.exe' files, all of which were supposed to be W98se specific. Have also, while trying to ascertain the correct program with which to open files(none of which have worked so far), forgotten at some point to uncheck "always use this" box. Now stuck on a program that does not work, and is applied to all three files.
The only info I've found so far applies to XP, although it is stated in a related thread that it also applies to 98/98se. Unfortunately, what is described is not the same as what I see.
The instructions are as far as I can determine, "right click(the file), click 'properties', on 'general tab' click 'change option'." I have no change option on there.
Have I missed something when installing the "upgrade" files?
Have I got the wrong files(98 instead of se)?
How do I reset the "program that opens" again?
Do I need to disable IE for Opera to work?
