A bit of history...

In 1998, Microsoft released Windows 98, the successor of Windows 95. Windows 98 was the first Windows operating system to include the Windows Update feature, located at the top of the Start Menu. The original Windows Update website was upgraded to a newer version in late 1998, becoming what Windows Update Restored v2 is. This website is the predecessor of Windows Update v3.0/3.1, and both revisions have the same user interface and design. Though, Windows Update v2 was only designed to work with Internet Explorer 4.0 (which shipped with Windows 98 First Edition), later upgraded to Internet Explorer 5.0/5.5/6.0. Windows Update v2 introduced a more user friendly interface, as well as a new logo and a better looking Product Updates Catalog.
