✔ Best Answer
You possibly could register it, but Windows Update for Win98 has been discontinued for years now. You'd do better by checking out the following:

Ditch IE and get a more modern browser (i.e. Opera 10.x).

There is no MS activation required for Win 98 if that's what you mean. I rather doubt MS still have Win98 updates available - have you checked?

As for drivers then they are normally downloaded from the computer manufacturers (if still available) rather than MS.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Wasn't all this covered already in another thread?
