This question was answered on June 16, 2004. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

#1 It seems tobe an incompatibility issue when running anything higher than 3.0 you should just continue using 3.0

#2 In Windows Millennium, use an Emergency Boot Disk to boot the computer to MSDOS mode Without CDROM Support At the A:\ Prompt, type Ren c:\explorer.exe explorer.old, and then press ENTER Restart the computer.
