    Yes I know...98 is OLD. I am soon buying a new comp fully updated. But for the time being I would like to fix some repetitive errors on my computer... One error I get playing games or using internet explorer scanning the net is the following...

    Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

    Runtime Error!

    Program C:\Program files\"insert name of program here"\CLIENTR.EXE

    This application has requested the Runtime to terminate in in an unusual way.

    Does anyone have any idea how to fix this error?:?:

    Win98 only runs for so long before it just needs to be started fresh. After installing programs, removing others and so on for a long time, the best bet is to format the drive and install Win98 again so it can get a fresh lease on life.

    Oh, and more times than not a Runtime error is caused by bad coding (particularly of web pages) rather than a problem with the machine. If you don't think this is the case for you, then head over to and under their SUPPORT header, look for the Knowledge Base and do a search there. It is surprisingly complete... but I guess it had to be given the number of problems that always seem to accomany ANY Microsoft product.
