Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

Hi all. This is a very special request. In the times of the Windows 95 Betas, MS shared some infected CDs with some beta testers. Has anyone here have such disks?

Or do you collect virusses (it can, somebody collects stamps, or betas or virusses).

It was probably an accident. In other words, the CD-ROM's were probably defective.

back in that time about 99% of the PCs have been infected because everyone swaped floppys with their friends - remember, this was more than 10 years ago - even the most known security specialist(s) (e.g. Peter Norton) did not believe in Viruses
