Hello everyone. I have been using W98 2nd edition and have just replaced my computer...new one has XP. It took me a long while to find out about generic problems in the W98 system...especially the shutdown problem. Can anyone give advice on what problems I will be in for with XP and what should be changed in the os to make the system run easier. Like removing the pw and sign in page and welcome page. I am not comfortible with going in the registry. Thanks for your help.
