Upgrade to Y2K Compliancy
If you're running Windows 95 or Windows 98, your OS is not Y2K ready. You can get a copy of the upgrade fix on CD by calling one of the following numbers:
For Windows 95 users: 1-888-673-8925
For Windows 98 users: 1-888-219-1302
When you connect, press 4 to get a live operator, or just stay on the line. Tell them you want the "Windows 98 (or 95) year 2000 update" on cd-rom. They'll ask for your physical address (not email) and will send you the upgrade CD free of charge. They say it takes 4 weeks to get, so you'll want to request it soon.
