I'll start the Topic an leave to others for a finish.
I was reminded of my "Dial-Up" days when I saw "!" complain of being cut-off during a long D/L. I advised him to look @ http://www.killprog.com for killcopy.exe which may help. I have another bit advice for his Win98, ie;
""""Advise "!": More info on KillCopy:
my KillCopy_ver_note version I have is 2.85 for WinNT/2000/XP/2003
Must D/L (ver 2.82) from http://www.killprog.com/KCinst_2_82.exe
Look out for killcopy to change your "Delete"
into "ByPass ReCycle Bin and go straight to Oblivion!"
"!", I didn't know how to contact and send this; but this is better anyway. If it helps you, it can help others.
Installation, updates, general problem solving and assistance.
