Where to get updates for Windows ME?

I know that microsoft has stopped issuing updates for Windows ME but does anybody know where I can get the updates that were issued up to the time this July that they stopped issuing them? I had to do a restore on my computer and I don't have want to spend the money to upgrade to XP right now. Thanks for any help.

The definitive upgrade for MyEnemy is XP. If you spend money on nothing else, spend it on XP. MyEnemy is the absolute worst OS that Microsoft has ever released. Any time you spend installing MyEnemy is a waste of time.

I must agree with the Mod. ME is absolute junk. ME and XP are like night and day. I would have no idea where you could ever get an update for ME.

what about win98?

I also have a copy of win 98. would you recommend loading win 98 over using ME? XP is out of the question at this time. This is a second computer that is only used for dial up internet. Thanks

I would definitely reformat the hard drive and load Windows 98, or better yet Windows 98SE. It is a better OS than MyEnemy and much more stable.

what about a copy of IE6?

Can I also download a copy of IE6 or IE7 and will either run on this OS?

Once you have reinstalled Windows 98SE. Go to the MS page and download IE6 SP1.

Once you have installed it you will be able to use Windows update to get all of the MS updates. Then you're done as there will not be anymore.
