I had this happen in Win98 too, so I'm hoping someone here
can explain why it happens.

I'm running ZoneAlarm, and when I open Windows Explorer,
ZoneAlarm informs me that Windows Explorer is trying to access
the internet.

What's up with that? I thought it was a glitch in Win98, but
obviously not, since XP is doing the same thing.

Any theories? Thanks.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
