Windows 98 is a many-splendored thing, but it contains its share of flaws. Accomplished Windows 98 users know how to solve, or at least work around, these problems. Bulletproofing Windows 98 encapsulates some fairly advanced Windows 98 knowledge into an easy-to-browse format, enabling you to make adjustments to Windows 98 that ensure top performance and maximum reliability.

Glenn Weadock and Gerald Routledge touch on every aspect of Windows 98 in their efforts to provide you with a more efficient machine. Not only do they show how to free up enough hard-disk space to install Windows 98, they tell the reader how to set up a batch installation routine that works over a network. They give similar attention to hard-disk optimization, printing, and remote-access arrangements.

On top of its specific instructions for tweaking Windows 98, Bulletproofing Windows 98 includes a lot of informative prose that details how Microsoft's bestselling operating system works under the surface. In a typical passage, the authors explain the differences between the printing capabilities of Windows 95 and Windows 98. In this comparison, they explain the new OpenType font specification fully.

The CD-ROM that ships with this book includes a grab bag of demonstration software, including trial editions of Symantec's pcAnywhere, Norton AntiVirus, and Norton Utilities, along with Quarterdeck's CleanSweep and Niko Mak's WinZip. --David Wall
