DOS anti-virus recommendation

Yes, I'm serious. I know the prevailing consensus is that you can't get a virus because DOS is dead and old. But that doesn't in my mind mean that one can't pick up a classic 1980s or 1990s virus off of an old FTP archive or BBS dump, used recyclable or program disks, or random "abandonware" …

Re: Win311 will not start ?

Try running setup and switching to the normal 640x480x16 VGA mode driver. I think you might just have an issue with your video driver.

Dreamblaster X2 Midi File Playback in Windows 95

So, I just got my new Dreamblaster X2. So, thought I'd relive the 90s a bit and play some MIDI files I'd downloaded. Nope. I remember MIDI enough from the 90s not to have high expectations, but this sounds broken. The general sound is that of a department store Casio keyboard playing in demo mode, …
