Default after 98lite (good?, .wmv and internet browser)


i just used "98lite" (search if you do not know what this is) and installed microsoft windows 98 se with microsoft windows 95 ocr2 explorer, no internet explorer.

what do you think about this?
do you think i can install the last version of windows media player?
is there any other way to view .wmv files? wich is the best internet browser to use now?

Well, since you've now lightened Win98 some apps won't work since they rely on IE and its files, so they probably won't install or run unless IE is installed. There aren't many so don't worry (WMP7 and up need IE, so you can't install them).

Firebird is a good browser now that you're IE free! Opera is another good one, but it's ad supported....
Media Player Classic is a superb replacement for WMP and it has the ability to play just about every format (even Quicktime and RealMedia) with the use of some codecs/filters. Here's a link to a great codec pack that has WM 7-9 support as well as Divx, Xvid, and many others (plus another player).
