5/2006— Microsoft Ends Support for Windows 98 and Windows Me
Effective June 30, 2006, support for Windows® 98, Windows® 98 Second Edition, and Windows® Millennium Edition (Windows Me) will end.
Existing support documents and content, however, will continue to be available through the Microsoft Support Product Solution Center Web site. [Microsoft’s] Web site will continue to host a wealth of previous How-to, Troubleshooting, and Configuration content for anyone who may need self-service.
Microsoft is retiring support for these products because they are outdated and can expose customers to security risks. Microsoft® recommends that customers who are still running Windows® 98 or Windows® Me upgrade to a newer, more secure Microsoft® operating system, such as Windows® XP, as soon as possible.
