As mentioned above KernelEx 4.52 really improves the experience of Windows 95, 98 and especially ME!
KernelEx 4.52 is a discontinued project and can still be downloaded. If one has questions they can visit KernelEx Wiki.
I was not able to install Internet Explorer 7 with KernelEx, though, the Browsers I can install are amazing.
The newest Slimbrowser 7.00.082, that came out this month, is working perfectly on my Inspiron 8000, 900 Mhz., 256 MB RAM, Windows ME, Internet 6. There are no Script errors! This browser works as well or better than any other.
I have installed Firefox 3-9, Nightingale, (2014 edition), Opera 11 & 12, (12 is a bit too slow), SeaMonkey 2.01 as well as others, including older ones for 98/ME. There are just too many Script errors on a browser for Windows 98/ME that does not have KernelEx support.
My older Thinkpad 760XD, 166 Mhz, 56 MB RAM can browse with Firefox 3 and SeaMonkey 2.01, (OffByOne is cool for a little search - 1 MB Browser). I am unable to run Slimbrowser 6 & 7 due to a GDIPlus error message.
On my Thinkpad 390E, 333 Mhz. and my Inspiron 8000, (better the 8000), I can watch YouTube, installing FlashPlayer 10.8 on the Inspiron and 10.1 on the Thinkpad 390E, (due to the CPU speed limitation described in KernelEX Wiki.
Having said this KernelEx is discontinued and is a very small program code. This should be studied and written in by the Browser Programmers and others!
