Wanna run modern gaming on your outdated Win98 PC?

because somehow, someone got Minecraft to run on that OS. It's not running too well, however, but the fact it can be played is probably a miracle.

Various Firefox addons such as AdBlock, NoScript and such have probably done more to keep malware off my PC than most of the AV software, since browsing can deliver you a payload the quickest way...

Install the OptiFine mod for your version of MC and adjust video settings- or adjust them if oyu have that installed already. Your video card is likely not handling things properly for distant blocks.

Admittedly I have had far more malware issues with 7 than I ever did on XP- some of that I can blame on there being nastier malware since the mid-00s, I guess, some I can blame on more security holes...
