Sounds like you require 128 bit encryption which are not supported under windows 98. you could try to go into explorer options and enable 128 bit under security tab.

microsoft doesnt support windows 98 anymore thus the reason why you can't get critical updates.

you should consider upgrading to xp

For Windows XP and Vista

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\ Parameters
EnablePMTUDiscovery DWORD 1
DefaultTTL DWORD 128
EnablePMTUBHDetect DWORD 0

For Win 98

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\MSTCP
DefaultTTL String 128
PMTUBlackHoleDetect String 0
PMTUDiscovery String 1
SackOpts String 1
Tcp1323Opts String 3

Note: Windows 95 users should first download and install the WinSock 2 update from Microsoft. Then follow the steps as mentioned for Win98.

Play online and Windows version will be handled by the web site. It does not matter which windows version you are using. The game runs by the engine on the web site.

My game won't open, it says "New GFXSurface failed...get tech support..."


for some old games you usually need some kind of emulator, basically this will allow you to run a game in an environment the game was designed for.

out on a limb here but i assume usage of windows vista.

More ram and vdeo card


it sounds as if your MoBo is seeing the video adapter as a source of ram. if that is the case, then installing memory in units of 1Gb will cause a stick to not be seen, therefore utilized. you may want to refer to you manual for memory limits and poosible comparibility issues. they are usually quite in depth. also, make sure that they are all the same make model and speed. these issues have wreaked havoc on the prettiest of pc's.

My computer have no sound. It only reproduces Cd, using "Cp player". but if I want uses other programs like Windows Media Player", or "Winamp", there is no sound. And i have no...


usually windows 98 computers have this problem. if you go onto microsofts site and look for windows 98 media player updates then it should sort this problem. otherwise you coud do one of the following:

- purchase windows xp from pc world or somewhere simular or otherwise just download from the internet using a download program called a bit torrent tracker ( a program which lets you download software and things for free....which is on the slide if you know what i mean)

- check that the volume on media player is set to play out

any problems still let me know by email milliprowd21@yahoo.co.uk
