When on the net I get a message from windows 98 that script is not enabled on this page and am asked if I want to continue running script. It says it is eror 63 and that " length is not an object" I never got this with 95, just with 98 beta and now the full version. How do I fix?

That sounds like a java script error, and has nothing to do with your PC, but with the person who wrote the web page.

Go to Control Panel, then Internet, then choose the ADVANCE TAB, then Check the box next to "DISABLE SCRIPT DEBUGING"
Enable all JAVA as well.

Then, you might need to reboot. try again and let me know.

If this do not work.Reject the answer.

when i open tools all i get are 3 boxes , find, map network drive, disconnect network drive. Could this be a bug in the 4.5
browser. Also I get the message that I can't run active x because I haven't authorized it. Could this have anything to do with the fact that I neglected to delete the beta browser before
installing 98 ?

you seem that you are using NEtscape.
in Netscape, Edit,preferences,advance,then see if the Java script is enable. try reinstalling the software.

What browser are you using? when you meant 4.5 you mean netscape? or IE?
well. reject the answer. or reinstall the software.  I would say that you reinstall the software. and if you want upgrade to IE5 the latest version.

sorry, the problem is with IE. It doesn't happen with netscape or Geoplanet.

You indicated BETA code, I had that problem, when I updated from BETA code via upgrade.  Had to completely format my disk and start a new installation.

I'm just wondering if this couldn't be like my situation, upgrading from beta code..   The problem with upgrading from beta code is that often elements in the registry are actually locked in and you can't amend or update them as needed.

Just .... in case.

Endless abnormalities existed for me when I upgraded from Windows 98 BETA 3 code to final retail versions, and entailed weeks of long distance calls, troubleshooting processes, workarounds, reinstallations and so on.

BOTTOM LINE, NEVER UPGRADE from BETA CODE -- DO CLEAN INSTALL.
Although a clean installation was required for me to stabilize my environment and start enjoying some of the benefits of Windows 98, it also meant reinstalling all my applications, upgrading drivers, etc.  Bottom line, the sooner the better.
