USB Bug found with fast AMD chips, Win98SE

But Microsoft has the solution, it says

People with AMD microprocessors running at clock speeds over 350MHz and who use Windows 98 Second Edition need a workaround if they're using USB devices. The Microsoft support site, which has a specific page on the problem here, is offering a downloadable file which it claims will solve the problem. According to the site, people with PCs that use a Via USB controller and an AMD processor clocking at 350MHz or faster, could have problems making their USB peripherals works. The glitch is caused by a timing specific problem in the USB driver, according to Microsoft. Thanks to Japanese reader Battlax for pointing the problem out to us. He also adds that Melco, which has a site here, has released an AMD K6-2/533 upgrade kit, which will allow users to overclock their K6-2/500s to 533MHz. ®
