but what they don't know is that MS issued a second patch
to address additional Y2K problems in Windows Explorer
and in Internet Explorer 4.01.
So how do you know if you have the correct patch? Simple.
Look in Windows Explorer in the Windows folder if you find
a file named y2kw95.txt
If you don't find the file, you need a new patch from:
No thanks! I'm here for you :-)
