    Change language of an updated XP

    Ok, the system is up and running, however it's... uh... "hybrid". Some menus are in Italian, some others are in English. I installed the SP4, 'cause Harkaz wrote in the topic that "Windows XP SP4 can installed on any version of Windows XP with SP1", which led me to think that SP4 actually includes SP2 and SP3.

    The wikihow article I linked to has the Community Tested green badge, which signifies: But are you sure installing (unofficial) SP4 is the way to go?

    Change language of an updated XP

    I just changed the values in the registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Nls\Language Default: 0409 InstallLanguage: 0409 I'm now downloading the Service Pack 4 (instead of SP3), so hopefully I won't have to reinstall too many updates. Hopefully it's gonna work. I'll let you know.

    Change language of an updated XP

    @FranceBB : Italian (it-IT) is what is called the base language of your OS, and it can't be fully reverted to English (en-US) without an OS re-install; however, people have posted a workaround, which might solve your predicament... Funny thing is, the person asking for that in tomshardware site is a (supposedly) compatriot of yours, wanting to change from Italian to English: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/281286-45-change-display-language-windows-professional => "as far as I know there is only one way. SP3 + regedit" ; the youtube video guide has been long removed (probably at MS's request), but, thankfully, another site has saved it as complete instructions, including screenshots: https://www.wikihow.com/Change-the-Language-of-Your-Computer-(Windows-XP) I believe WinXP SP3 update (in en-US) is saved by MSFN member @sdfox7 in his server (but should be available in Microsoft Update Catalogue)... Worth a shot trying the procedure... Auguri
  6. Good If you can, let us know how it went. jaclaz
  7. My hero!! Thank you so much for this! I will try it after the holiday.

    @someguy25 Have in case of the cases created a small batch with which this problem, which appears to be partly after updates, can solve on the fast. All you have to do is adjust the language code.

    Change language of an updated XP

    @Mathwiz it's a localised version of Windows Professional. MUI it's just not there: Can I "convert" a localised version of XP into a MUI one? I googled the "Language Interface Pack" and I found a link https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=1231 but it just lets me download "Readme.html" (3kb).

    Hello @bigmuscle,how do You think, it is stable enough to release as stable? Best regards
  13. I've noticed I'm getting an error in Event Viewer titled Security-SPP with Event ID 16385 every 30 seconds saying the following: Failed to schedule Software Protection service for re-start at <time_stamp>. Error Code: 0x80070002. I'm using an OEM install of Windows 8.1 - no upgrades, IIRC this is the OS this laptop came with (Lenovo Y50-70). I've had a look online, and whilst I could find others with the same issue, there isn't an easy fix and many talk about importing the tasks within the SoftwareProtectionPlatform copied from other working Windows 8 systems. So far I've ensured that NETWORK SERVICE has full control in permissions for the C:\Windows\System32\Tasks\Microsoft\Windows\SoftwareProtectionPlatform folder. I've been able to open Task Scheduler OK (some mention it errors for them), but even with Show Hidden Tasks enabled, cannot find any tasks listed within the Microsoft\Windows\SoftwareProtectionPlatform folder. What's concerning me is this is apparently related to license authentication so I don't really want to mess about with things I know little about and then be left with activation problems. But at the same time it would be an absolute pain to reset my PC - especially just for a relentless Event Viewer error.

    No E-Mail Notifications?

    WELL! I just got an email now for a PM. But I had gotten PMs over the past week that I didn't know I had until I got here. So it works sometimes.
  16. Don't mention it. This'll probably be useful for anyone trying to run 9x bare metal, too. I believe Ryzen 2 and TR/EPYC don't have the VME bug, or it's much less pronounced. But Ryzen 1.0 does, and the fixes don't completely mitigate it.

    Aero Glass in Chrome 41 and later

    Well, I find it a "legit" question (as long as noone asks why I run XP SP2 ). jaclaz

    Because one can! It's bad netiquette on MSFN to ask such a question... I'd imagine that, at 400, posts you'd know that by now...

    Beware Office 2010 Updates!

    Good news all round! Microsoft Update is no longer warning me that I've hidden an important update, and KB4461522 has vanished from the hidden updates list. Now, should I uninstall KB2863821?

    HW RAID 1 vs SW RAID 1 vs incremental backup

    Yep, I used them (Dinamic Disks) "extensively" on Windows 2000 in "mirroring" mode, aka pseudo RAID 1 (much less on XP - a small hack was needed on some system files to have them working) and never had particular issues. Over the years however I have seen quite a few people recovering from "mysterious" issues with "normal" disks. More than a few times, for *some reasons*, the 0x07 Partition ID of "normal" NTFS primary volumes (system and boot volume) *somehow* was changed to 0x42, and the disk volume became unreadable/the system couldn't boot. A direct disk edit to 0x07 solved the issue just fine. A similar example: http://reboot.pro/topic/3463-converting-a-dynamic-disk-back-to-a-basic-disk/ Of course if the disk was actually Dynamic you should also delete the info at the end of the disk. Or use TESTDISK: https://mypkb.wordpress.com/2007/03/28/how-to-non-destructively-convert-dynamic-disks-to-basic-disks/ Please note how the good MS guys want you to delete the contents to perform a conversion form Dynamic to Basic: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/storage/disk-management/change-a-dynamic-disk-back-to-a-basic-disk I never found a suitable explanation for this and MS lists (listed) only the opposite case (Dynamic Disks being *somehow* reverted to basic or "mixed mode"): https://web.archive.org/web/20080327141814/http://support.microsoft.com/kb/236086 https://support.microsoft.com/en-sg/help/320283/you-cannot-revert-a-disk-to-a-basic-disk-if-the-disk-appears-as-dynami jaclaz

    Can Windows XP Pro x86 *Safely* TRIM an SSD?

    I focus more on Windows 9x Applications. NTFS TRIM Programs already existed. I don't have enough documentation on NTFS to write one. You can TRIM a NTFS Partition by Zero filling it and then use the Zero TRIM Mode in my Program.
