Unfortunately the Windows 98 performance problem was not adequately fixed.
We are attempting to diagnose and remedy the problem as quickly as possible.
I will let you know as soon as the problem is fixed. Customers on Windows
NT and Windows 2000 are not affected by this problem.
Sorry for the confusion.
