    Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    My bad, I meant the 8, more or less prices should be the same between Sweden and Italy on these items, possibly a little less in Italy: https://www.apple.com/it/shop/buy-iphone/iphone-7 here the 7/7 plus is between 549 and 789. The 8/8 plus have been rebated recently I believe due to the launch of the new XR/XS, they are currently : https://www.apple.com/it/shop/buy-iphone/iphone-8/display-da-4,7"-256gb-argento#00,10,21 889 and: https://www.apple.com/it/shop/buy-iphone/iphone-8/display-da-5,5"-256gb-argento#01,10,21 999 to which you add the Apple Care 169 Euro. jaclaz
  4. Yes, I wouldn't do that either, it's too risky for my taste. But in my case this procedure was needed to fix a dumb mistake one of our technicians made. We had a computer with Win NT 4.0 that wasn't booting, and he suspected it could be a problem with the hard disk. He took the HDD from the old PC, and used an IDE-to-USB adapter to check it in a new computer running Windows 10. As soon as the disk was connected, BAM! the NTFS version was upgraded. He simply browsed the volume with Explorer, but didn't write anything to it. It turned out that the real problem with the old computer was a faulty cable. We replaced the cable, but now it still wouldn't boot because of the changed NTFS version (the old PC only had NT4 SP3 installed, so we got a Blue Screen of Death at startup) We finally managed to fix the drive by installing NT4 in another (very old) machine, and plugging it in that box to be able to run DiskProbe and change those damned bytes related to the NTFS version When the failing machine booted again at last, we ran chkdsk just to be sure and it only found a few metadata errors, that were quickly corrected. There was no data loss, and the PC runs fine, thankfully. Regards.

    win98se mouse too fast

    It might be something to do with how windows98 handles USB devices, since the keyboard will also misbehave if I disconnect and reconnect it.

    Disable "Special Tasks" in XP

    I was wondering if there is a way to disable "Special Tasks" in Windows XP. For folders containing pictures or videos, Windows will add a section in the left side bar named "Picture Tasks" or "Video Tasks", right above the always-present "File and Folder Tasks", "Other Places" and "Details" sections. There are probably more types than just the ones for pictures and videos. For several years now, I have had XP set up to display all folders in Details view (by clicking the "Apply to all folders" button after having configured one to my tastes). This way, I don't get additional columns in the main panel of the folder if Windows decides this to be an image or video folder. However, this doesn't prevent the "Picture Tasks" or "Video Tasks" sections from appearing. I have found many articles on the web describing how to disable "Automatic Folder Type Discovery" on Vista and later, but the procedure doesn't appear to work for Windows XP.

    You can try using a PS/2 mouse, unless your motherboard doesn't have a PS/2 port. Did you try changing the mouse speed in the Control Panel Mouse applet?
  12. Same symptoms as described in my initial post.

    win98se mouse too fast

    OK, So I've been attempting to install windows98 SE on my Ryzen 5 2400g system using @rloew's patches, it's been going well so far. I've made it up to the windows98 desktop, but i now have an issue with my mouse. It jumps to the corners of my screen way too quickly and it's unusable. Earlier during the install, I could use the setup /il switch to fix this problem - /il - Load the Logitech mouse driver. Use this option if you have a Logitech Series C mouse. is there a way to tell windows98 to use the Logitech mouse driver all the time? or another solution?
  17. The thing - at the time - was for the NTFS version 3.0 (Windows 2000), The idea was to still be able to use a previously/originally formatted to 1.2 NTFS volume after the Windows 2000 arbitrarily changed it to NTFS 3.0. I personally wouldn't even think of running NT 4.0's chkdsk on a volume that was originally formatted as 3.0 or 3.1 (and populated by the install of a later, Windows 2000 or XP, let alone Vista or later), maybe nothing bad will happen, but I wouldn't take the risk. jaclaz

    It's not like it is Brazil only, I don't think that situation is very different in Italy, maybe the iPhone is (comparatively) a little bit cheaper, but not by much. An iPhone 7 revolves around the 900-1200 Euro range. (which to me - being notoriously cheap - seems like a lot of money) A fridge (a normal one usually already has a freezer) is in the 300-700 range A freezer (again a "normal" one) is in the 300-500 range. The twist (at least here) is that you see around lots of people with iPhones and iPads, they have become a sort of (poor man's) status symbol, though I believe that most are not actually "bought" but rather "rented" from the SIM card provider, and paid on a monthly basis. jaclaz

    Error 0cx000007b On Game Launch

    Hi jumper! Thank you so much for the reply I knew something wasn't right when I saw those entries lol! It's just so weird that that this particular game is the only one that is showing this. No other game I've tested does, however, when I actually launch any of those games, it doesn't show in Task Manage that they are 32-bit apps. I certainly don't want to break Skype. Although my version is pretty old, because a) For some reason I can't recall now, I wasn't able to install a newer version, and b) I hate the more recent versions of the app lol! Also, I can't even tell if the Skype installers are 32-bit or 64-bit, when I search for the downloads. Anyway, I double-checked all the Visual C++ Redistributables I have installed via Add/Remove programs, and it does list that I have both x86 and x64 versions of the Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable. So not sure how to proceed if, in fact, that is the problem.
  20. if you don't mind using non-free program, Paragon Partition Manager (DOS/Win versions) can downgrade NTFS version by some mouse clicks.
  21. hope you don't miss my message:

    Error 0cx000007b On Game Launch

    From Capture2.jpg, your Steam app is 64-bit and the only copy of the CRT runtimes it can find are the 32-bit files installed with Skype. While updating those files with 64-bit versions should fix the problem for all 64-bit apps, that would break Skype and other 32-bit apps. > 9) Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable Installing the 64-bit version should fix the problem without breaking Skype. Otherwise you will need to uninstall the 32-bit version of Skype and install a 64-bit version.

  24. How to get the Group Policy Editor on Home version: https://www.itechtics.com/enable-gpedit-windows-10-home/ Open up the Group Policy Editor by launching gpedit.msc as an administrator and make the following changes: Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Data Collection and Preview Builds. Double click Telemetry, hit Enabled, set the value to 0 and click apply. It's counter-intuitive, I know, but that is the actual way to do it.

    use custom CAB files for a win9x installation?

    The Scripts rebuild the entire set of CAB Files. They cannot rebuild a single CAB or just a few CABs.
  26. yes it will be, eventually. this is stored in palemoon.exe and xul.dll.
