look for any drivers you need before you upgrade and d/l them,so you have them ready to install

Honestly if I was upgrading from Win 95 I would go to Win 2000. Its much more stable than Win 98 or Me. What are the specs on your computer. Cpu,ram,hd,motherboard,etc? Dai is right about the drivers part. If you have a legacy system Win update might not even carry the drivers for your system.

Hi,

Good advice from my friends on the forum. I would like to add that if you choose to upgrade to Win98, then go for the Win98se version and not the straight Win98. As said, WinMe will work for you, but is not a great OS itself.

Since you've mentioned 3 versions of Windows, I don't know which forum this should go in, so I'll just move this thread to the Win ME forum.
