Hi,

I installed Oracle 8i Personal Edition in Windows 98. My question is that how should I come to know that Oracle is started or shut down.

I mean when it is installed in Windows XP I go to Control panel -> Services -> checks the status of Oracle Listener and Server manager.

So how to check in windows 98.

Bye
Ashutosh

You could try to connect to the database using SQL*Plus. If there's a success, your database is up.

Yes, I know you'd like to know something like that. But, both Windows 98 and Oracle 8i are quite ancient (am I wrong if I say that both operating system and database are not longer supported by Microsoft and Oracle? I know for Oracle 8i, but Windows 98 ... or is it Windows 95?).

I really wouldn't know how to check whether the database is up or not; perhaps there is something like Enterprise Manager - check the documentation (I believe it can still be found on the Oracle Technology Network. However, having OEM or not, SQL*Plus will show you the state of your database. I'm sorry if it doesn't satisfy your needs, but I don't know anything better.

I guess that tool (anti-virus?) which noticed you about presence of that virus should be able to disinfect your computer. I believe any of them should be fine (Sophos, Norton, AVG, ...) - there are plenty of them; perhaps to choose one of free of them first.

I didn't quite understand what does your last sentence have to do with either virus or database status. What opportunities are you talking about?
