Hi Mike. My mate has an old PC running 98 and because it was always playing up asked me to try and help. I found it was fitted with only 96mb of memory when 128mb is the really the minimum for todays programs. Often with older machines, people overlook the minimum requirements - they were OK in their day sort of thing. May be an idea to check what is expected to run on the PC and whether the system is up to it. click here for Home Edition v1.51. It will be a good place to start. Good luck.
