Go to the microsoft windows 7 web page for a program to run maybe and the needed basic minimum requirements.

I doubt a ME computer would be a good choice for such an expensive upgrade and you can't use an upgrade disk either.

Hang up and live.

Your best bet is to install Kernel EX compatibility program. (This allows many Windows XP programs to run on Windows 98/ME.)

Then install Firefox 3.6.28 and Flash Player 9,0,47 (9.0.47).

Flash Player 10 will also work with Kernel EX but you have to download Adobe's archived file which is >100MB. Flash 9 still works on YouTube and is a smaller file.

This should keep you current enough until you're ready to upgrade your computer or OS.

Without knowing your system specifications it is impossible to tell what OS it might be compatible with. It is highly doubtful that Windows 7 would run. It may run XP but probably not well. Probably best to get the most you can from the current OS.
