    No, I corrected that previous post. I've tried to find some kind of pattern. It seems, folders with .exe's are the prime target. I can open folders with images (.jpg, .png etc), then close and there is no issue re-naming. Folders that have programs in (not installed, just original backups), even just opening, then closing will cause the lockup. BUT, not always. I also removed Panda with those 2 loaded programs that I couldn't stop (by their design). Using MS Config, I unchecked all of my installed programs (non MS), but that made no difference. To be clear, none of this has to do with the active O/S partition. These are other partitions on other HDD's (I have 1 SSD, & 2 HDD's all partitioned at least once. The O/S is on the SSD) I'm going to try a shot at AutoRuns. ProcessHacker & MS Config aren't cutting it. I use them since they are reasonably easy to read, understand & use. .

    Newer motherboards that support WinXP

    Hi there, Please take a sceenshot, I don't think they're working in full, I really did long searching and found nothing LAN/ USB3/ ME/ driver exist with XP32, which I think "nearly impossible". appreciate if you can post some evidence to proof your success. I got AsRock Z170 OCF so LAN driver for xp32 is the top essential that I looking for. Peace
  5. Hello! I'm unable to download the installer for the latest version for some reason. This is what I get. Two different laptops and my phone. Is there an alternate link to download it from? Thanks! Edit: I managed to download it from https://www.techspot.com/downloads/downloadnow/6207/?evp=d9f913b04aaf59bc81b0e65acdc5e5df&file=1

    Are you saying ShellFolderFix is what is causing your issues?

    Agreed 100%, I also experienced very long SQL Server installation in 2010-2012 or somewhen then.

    ShellFolderFix has to run, same goes for ClassicShell it retains the 'Classic' (2k) look. I disabled both, but the problem remained. I took a screen shot of Process Hacker in normal mode and Safe Mode to compare the differences. BTW; Explorer was running, I had a folder opened at the time. .

    Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    If they do release an ARM version of Edge, it will probably be ARM64 because of the whole Windows 10 on ARM effort they've recently been pushing. AFAIK Windows 8.x RT was made for ARM32.
  12. For about a month, maybe a little more, GE 6.0.2 or a lower version doesn't work anymore. The server login failed. Error Message: "GE can't contact the imagery server to download new images. GE detected an error while trying to authenticate." I guess something like a handshake Problem (SSE/TLS). I tried higher versions and succeeded partially with version 7.0.2.8415 (VC++ 2010). Test system WIN ME / KernelEX update 18). On my main computer (G41/Core2DUO Wolfsdale), I can start and run it, but ME crashes after close. Best is to restart directly by CTRL-ALT-DEL. On another machine (ME/KEX18/G31/Core2DUO Wolfsdale) GE 7.0.2 starts, do login, the globe appears and the zomm works, too. However, no new images are loaded here. I suppose a missing dll on the second one. I had ruled out KEXT after a test. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions about this?

    Instagram videos not working in Firefox 52 ESR?

    @Mathwiz _________________________________________ I usually use NM28 with XP. But having multiple browsers installed is always advisable. For example with NM28 I cannot access the advanced configuration of some routers. For the model below: https://www.amazon.it/TP-Link-TL-MR6400-Monitoraggio-Traffico-Alternativa/dp/B017IGEPWW I have to access only with I.E.8 from my pc with XP. Sorry for the OT,

    Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    Also I want to see if an ARM version of Edge Browser will released for Windows RT 8.1. (I've never really got a clear answer to this, but where is the best place to post about Surface RT tablets and Windows RT questions?)

    Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    So what's new and exciting these days at Microsoft? Windows 10 version upgrade woes? Oh those are old and rancid! What concerns US? What's waiting in the Windows Update Catalog? Well, here are some updates for Windows Server 2008 R2, which is maybe officially for some neighbors of ours, but which we might quietly appropriate and enjoy as well ... KB4488661 NET Framework 2.0 update KB4488666 NET Framework 4.6 update KB4488869 NET Framework 4.52 update KB4489873 Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 9 KB4489876 Security Only update for March 2019 KB4489880 Security and Monthly Quality Rollup for March 2019 KB4489489 Security and Quality Rollup for NET Framework 2.0, 3.0, 4.5.3, and 4.6 -- contains KB4488661, KB4488666, KB4488869, plus the old regulars mspatchregfix, KB3078602, and KB4020478. Not so much to shout about actually, since MS's shoving what used to be a half dozen or more patches into one "rollup" . Oh well. One more minor thing, I'm expecting to move very shortly, and my internet interfacing may be a bit ... irregular... for a time (my beloved PC will be in a box in a storage cubicle for a couple of months unless I'm damn lucky, I'm trying to say). Granted, I haven't been doing anything really essential to GreenHillManiac's operations, so I expect things to continue smoothly. But if anyone is curious about my sudden silence , that'll be the reason.
  16. That's a good question. Older versions of Serpent do. Newer versions, however, sync with Palemoon's system (called Weave), as does NM of course. (The Palemoon team has been trying to make Basilisk more independent of Mozilla's infrastructure. That also applies to the add-ons Web pages.) I think the switch was made around December or January; I'll have to look to be sure. Edit: Looks like the switch was made 15 Dec 2018. Thus, you may want to try the 8 Dec 2018 version of Serpent (still called "Basilisk for XP" back then): https://rtfreesoft.blogspot.com/2018/12/weekly-browser-binaries-20181208.html From a technical and privacy standpoint, I think Palemoon's sync is better, but that does you little good if most of your other browsers use Mozilla's sync. BTW, I now use @roytam1's Serpent even on Windows 7, but not because of sync. It's because, since (IIRC) version 56, FF requires WE versions, while Basilisk doesn't support WE versions. But Serpent supports both, as does FF 52.9.

    Starter, its OK. In options, interface select show information panel, show startup selection tree, show service groups tree. I should have said Processes tab the next along, Explorer.EXE will be there sort alphabetically by clicking Process tab straight above the list. From what you have shown I would untick the E:\ShellFolderFixULink startup unless you are using it right at the moment. I hope you have manual system restore point placed as it will be dangerous disabling some startup functions. Starter shows user startups see the left tree list. It is safer to just disable these. This will be my lasts post for 2 - 3 weeks if I do not get on-line tonight, I can not log on with mobile phone. This will be edited out. Sorry missed the processes shot. Explorer should be there unless it is not running. My system shows many more. I know RT7 means a lot to you but having exceptions occurring means that the program is not that compatible or has a memory leak or something the mods are vast. The type column is showing the registry program association used for programs so that you can easily assign file types to startup with a specified program. For example Video Clip could be assigned to WMP.
  19. Off topic here of course, but while we're talking about browsers to possibly replace FF 52 ESR, do any or all of these browsers sync with versions of Firefox using the Mozilla sync system? I have other Firefox installations, all of which are the latest version on my phone and on Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 computers, and I wouldn't want to lose bookmarks, history and password sync with them if I went to another browser on Windows XP.

    Instagram videos not working in Firefox 52 ESR?

    Spoofing doesn't work for Instagram videos on FF 52.9; that is correct. I suggested that about 20 posts ago and it was quickly proven not to work. However I think @Sampei.Nihira was addressing @caliber's comment about a global spoof (general.useragent.override) causing Google Images to look "ugly." They kind of drifted OT a bit. (I mean, it's OK. It happens.) Context is everything. As I tried to point out in the Adobe Primetime thread, the only way you're likely to get FF 52.9 working again is to try to apply to FF 52.9 source the patches that the PM team applied to Palemoon/Basilisk on 21 July 2018 (and which @roytam1 applied to NM/Serpent), which fixed the problem on those browsers; then recompile FF 52.9 from the patched source. You might need to apply a lot of earlier patches as well, since it's likely that some of the July 21 patches depend on earlier ones. Personally, I don't think it's worth the trouble. Much easier to just switch to one of the browsers known to work.

    Microsoft Update Website Loop

    I have found that MS did something to Windows Update Site Agent 3.0 to loop on checking for the latest agent. 7.6 Works fine and i found that no looping is it. Just to inform you all also @dencorso the update agent that you provided to download is 7.6 so good then
  26. I can vouch for that, and believe me I've tried! It worked to get Facebook videos back to HTML5 after they dropped back to Flash a while ago, but that's not the same problem as now with Instagram. The fact that the videos still appear in the Page Info dialogue, and will play there, but won't appear in the pages where they should be, would seem likely to be caused by a scripting change Instagram made a few days ago for some reason, which Firefox 52 ESR either can't cope with or doesn't understand at all. The fact that placeholders don't even appear where the videos should be would bear that out. I've seen several posts where there is both a video and a still which can be sideways scrolled between. In that case the still appears correctly, but the video just appears as a white box. In my experience this is the first major compatibility problem to surface after FF 52 ESR came out of support, and I don't think it will easily be fixed I'm afraid.
  27. i found a pc with lot's of private data, which I deleted and installed everthing new. ahtlon xp and windows xp sp3 32 bit firefox 48.0.2 firefox addons from https://legacycollector.org/firefox-addons/ 7 zip 32 bit newest version ditto 3.21.134 - i like clipboard managers very much, very helpful tool infrarecorder 0.53 discontinued so far libreoffice 4.2.8 !!! sumatrapdf newest wmp 11, i just needed it to get access to my android smartphone with MTP which still did not work but i can still use it as a media player but mp4 playback didnt work until i installed lav filtes 0,69 this link helped me http://mydailytech.com/cracked-legitlibmdll-for-windows-media-player-11/ LAV filters 0.69 so that you can watch mp4-files with wmp 11 on non-sse2-cpus i hope no one is interested in the download links. i don't want to search them but all of the programs i mentioned are downloadable with a little search till now its a good feeling not to throw away old hardware. i dont understand really why people upgrade all their computers every year a working CRT monitor is not junk

    dencorso; Probably not, but "Starter" is from someone/somewhere else and after 10 years of no updates, "abandon" surely qualifys. I am going to remove Panda, it's only a backup A/V program, it's not active (per say, but those 2 processes running when not really doing anything doesn't cut it for me.
