About the book:

Windows 98 ships without its source code, but it's still possible to tweak it to look and behave the way you want. Sometimes you need to poke around and modify the operating system's binary files with a hex editor; sometimes all you need to do is perform some trickery with the interface as it is. Windows 98 Annoyances is for those who refuse to accept Windows 98 at face value.

Author David Karp is clearly a power user, but rather than simply dump reams of technical data upon the reader, he explains how to accomplish specific goals relative to Windows 98's appearance and behavior. Karp tells how to rig your system to flush its Temp folder (reclaiming disk space formerly used by crashed applications) every time it starts up. He also tells you how to build a text box that acts like a DOS command prompt. Excellent nuggets pack this book, and you can feel sure you'll implement at least a few of them on your machine.

Windows 98 Annoyances is, ultimately, about hacking Windows 98, never accepting anything as good enough, and always looking for a better way to do things. Karp provides excellent guidance to the Windows 98 power user. --David Wall
