    hmmmm.. in w98.. you are always in admin mode..

    sounds like this isp software is geared towards win2k/xp..

    you sure you're installing from the right folder off that cd ? who is the isp ?


    edit : oh, you edited in the isp.. lemme look at what they have on their site.

    well i just started using this isp yesterday and it was working great. then something happend in my comp and it went on the binge so i used the recovery cd, and now i put the cd in (it autoruns) and it starts normal then it says i must have administrative priviliges to install "this software" WTF. it says to logon with a username that has admin access

    i searched all over the help files, i even resorted to my A+ book, to no avail. so now im using my old isp which expires in i think two days. what a mess

    I just looked at their site.. seems you have to be a member already to even see the downloads.. I'll send you a private message with some info to help you out.
