hi all.a friend of a friend has asked me to take a look at a computer he has pulled down from the loft.(belonged to his late wife)he has no experience of computers but wants to have a play about with it and see it he can get to grips with it.he managed to set it all up and it boots to the login screen but he doesnt know the password.
he has told me he has a windows 98 CD that came with the computer and a few other discs.he is not sure of the pc specs and it will be monday before i get a look at at myself.
im thinking a complete reinstall of windows would be in order.i myself use xp home and have formatted and reinstalled this OS a few times easy peasy.windows 98 does not seem that straightforward though or is it?( i have just read microsofts help on this)
can anybody advise me on this please.i have downloaded all the windows 98 updates and when i find out the pc specs will get the drivers for mobo etc.anything else i will need or to watch out for?
