No, there is not a free upgrade, only paid. Probably won't work with windows 7, it is only intended for Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition , Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional , Microsoft Windows XP , Microsoft Windows NT Workstation , Microsoft Windows 95 , Microsoft Windows 98.

I can't install a visual basic 6.0. because I've been accidentally deleted the some components of system32. most especially the config.nt


If my memory serves, VB 6 was the last dos/windows version and windows;nt was simply a text file that held some config parameters when it ran in nt mode. I woud suggest you update your software, but if you are unable to do that, you might try reloading nt from diskette or CD. I think NT also supported the undelete command. If it hasn't been very long since you erased it, you may be able to restore it with an undelete. I think that was the command name.

Xp is not offcial


Please expalin.
I know you can Upgrade to XP at a discount from NT (actually it works from any pervious version of Windows to XP) but there is no Update from NT to XP.
I've been doing IT work for a long time, and I am a registered Microsoft Partner, and I have never heard of an Update to XP.

If you do mean upgrade to XP, here's how I would do it.
Get a copy of XP (preferably Pro, the upgrade version is fine, and you can still fine it a number of places). What they don't tell you about upgrade versions is that it is a full copy of XP, that just have a sequence that need the previous key to continue.
Use the XP disk to format, and begin the load.
During the install, it will ask for the qualified version of Windows you are upgrading from. You put in the NT CD, and it will continue the install (you just have to swap CD's back and forth a couple of times).
The previous version does not need to be installed.

If the NT is the only disk you have, and you don't want to purchase the XP upgrade, there is a whole process that you have to go through.
You do have to create 3 floppies that have the boot and load sequence.
This is not a real user friendly install, but it can be done.

I personaly would spend the time and money to find a copy of XP. Here again, your end product is going to be something you are much happier with.

Upgrade usb1.1 to usb2.0


If you don't have the 2.0 hardware, the drivers won't do any good. Tthe 1.1 will still work, and is not noticably slower.

AMD k6-2


the problem is xp which makes with an older K6-2 the clock speed lower. It takes a lot for a machine to run XP.
The best way is either go back to 98 or the only way could be ME.
not much what you can do about it otherwise
