This build features a new setup look, out with the Windows 98 style and in with the more colorful one.
The blue bootscreen is replaced with a white one with the Windows ME logo.
The Explorer ''hide'' page and the Common Control Panel options now display the 3 boxes with the windows flag.
Windows Movie Maker carries the 1.0 version and is build 1236. Windows Media Player has been upgraded again to version 7.0 but retains the old look.
MSN Messenger Service has changed it's logo from the red MSN to the blue MSN with butterfly.
The Help and Support has a updated UI and system Restore has also incorporated the new UI Style that is later carried over to Windows XP.
If you use Microsoft Virtual PC (which is recommended for older Windows Operating Systems) make sure you upgrade from Microsoft Windows 98 or a previous Microsoft Windows ME build (such as 4.90.2394.0).
This is because the installation doesn't install the correct Display Driver and VMAdditions and/or S3 Display Drivers don't work.
