The universal usb flash driver program was just what I was looking for.

But I didn't follow the instructions. (I did not uninstalled any flash dive drivers that were installed) And because I didn't trust it, I uninstalled some of its changes which I didn't think should have been made.

As it was installed, it works great.

My question is, how much of it is "all" Microsoft Software?

Most of the files are Microsoft files. The inf file is modified to allow the devices to be recognised.

The install loaded what appeard to be a newer version of Explorer.exe. Since I didn't know that it was a microsoft upgrade, I restored the Windows 98SE version that came with it. Ran sfc to sort out the changes. Kept some (kepted the files which were unique to the install) and restored others.

Flash drives, such as by Kingston (which no longer supports Windows 98SE with their newer flash drives), it would seem, can be used with it. (I had installed the the Kingston Windows 98SE driver set, too.)

Yes, a newer version of Explorer.exe is installed with this update. It is recommended to keep this version.

A few questions.

Currently, new flash drives work on my system just fine, as it is, with the "broken" install.

I suppose I can just re-run the original file.

How important is the Version 3.1.1 English Update nusb311e_upd.exe?

Or should I op to install nusb33e.exe instead?

It is my inclination, at this point to do nothing more until there is a problem.

As it's working. I'd be inclined to leave it. However if you want to update, then just install the latest version (nusb33e.exe).
