Certain Website App.Not Acceptable

By piko0 ·
I'm running a system with AMD 1.6GHz.,256mb ram operating Win 98 and using Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 as my browser. Recently I've tried to access a particular game called Party Bonus on It will not open for me so I can access it. It will open with Netscape Communicator 4.7 and Netscape 7.1. According to website requirements I have what I need, but they state they have an overwhelming amount of email inquiries and would take for ever to resolve this issue. Is there any settings I could change on Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 to gain access to websites that I now cannot? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Before doing anything else, I suggest that you upgrade to IE 5.5 SP2.

While Windows 98 can have problems with IE6, IE 5.5 works just fine and has security fixes that IE5 does not.

You can download IE 5.5 SP2 from the browser archive at

I just went to evolt and tried the webhat link and the download started just fine.

Check the HTTP and Security settings under Internet Options / Advanced.

Make sure that use HTTP 1.1 is checked and that SSL options are checked.

You might want to take a look at Sandi's IE page:

Since we know that you are having problems with IE, did you try to download IE 5.5 from Netscape?
