  2. Hi guys. Is it safe to go with KB4074852 and KB4056615 or should they wait just one-more-month laid off?
  3. UxTheme Signature Bypass

    I ended up patching system files with that method as well. No dependency on AppInit_DLLs and secure boot status, no random blue screens or cancelled logins that may arise when using Aero Glass's CreateRemoteThread method, no issues with .deskthemepack files, works when applying themes via Windows 10's Settings app and the chosen them loads even in Safe Mode. Interestingly, with original files, system just falls back to default theme in Safe Mode rather than freaking out. Also ran the patcher on 32-bit system to get patched versions of 32-bit files, for consistency.
  4. Bit Rot is a type of PEBCAK. :yes:

  5. Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    My Win10 Build 16299 install is still going. No apparent data corruption despite the strange errors in Event Log. Windows Update history almost fully clean with one failed Flash Player update which got installed successfully the second time around. How did hibernation file get a size of less than half the RAM amount without touching powercfg remains a mystery, but it sticks after correcting the setting. Found another inconsistency. Using USB tethering to access the internet via Android smartphone and setting *NdisDeviceType to 1 in registry to stop the system from creating and asking for a new network location every time it's plugged in makes the notification area network icon indicate no internet connectivity. Clicking on it does show the Connected status for the device and so does the network indicator on the login screen. UWP apps behave as if there's no internet so can't check for updates. Internet Explorer browses the web just fine. Still getting a bit stuttering graphics with NVIDIA's Windows 10 graphics drivers. The issue goes away with older ones predating Windows 10. Newer drivers for older systems refuse to work on Windows 10. It seems they've made software compositing via WARP slower. Got smooth window animations on Windows 8.1 in safe mode, but they're choppy on Windows 10. And the big UWP app opens after logging in and tells you you're not connected to the internet. Did they forget to make safe mode with networking mandatory? Regarding the Settings app; I don't know if things are better in 2018 when it comes to stability. Back in 2017, it would almost always crash on me when going through the settings A - Z, somewhere in Privacy section. They've also changed auto accent colorization change to quick and abrupt from smoother variant (eg. when the desktop background changes). The background change is still animated and the AnimationDuration setting in registry respected. Maybe the swift accent color transition is meant as an optimization? Smoother version does spam application windows with more WM_DWMCOLORIZATIONCOLORCHANGED messages, but looks nicer. Now what rough edges may the RS4 bring?
  6. Yes, this is the 64-bit version of the software so it's located in Program Files.
  7. I know it is achievable . We did it last week in our overclocking club . But system is bit unstable.
  8. It doesn't work for me atleast . I am looking forward to Vista lover result.
  9. @VistaLover did you test if widevine work when media.eme.enabled = true ?
  10. Text-to-Speech Programs on Windows 9x?

    I never heard Siri on Windows. By the way what about changing voice of Sam. I believe somewhere it is their in binary.
  11. Text-to-Speech Programs on Windows 9x?

    Question is, will she be a usable TTS voice? I'm simply just asking if I could find her voice anywhere on pc.
  12. windows 95 on gateway 600yg2

    I have a patch that reports the Drive name. It works on any 9x OS.
  13. Copy and Paste is frowned upon in forums. I saw all three in a matter of minutes.
  14. New chipsets - Z170,Z270,Z370 or Ryzen support?

    What about plain 8100 on H/B/Z1x0 with modded microcode and graphics module? or 8400 hard-modded blocking 2 pins from connecting on H/B/Z1x0 with modded microcode and graphics module?
  15. Text-to-Speech Programs on Windows 9x?

    Get a iPhone you will have Siri
  16. I have not tested yet.
  17. Text-to-Speech Programs on Windows 9x?

    Back once again. So, I discovered Windows 9x computers were outstanding for reading books, something which will never go obsolete. Windows 9x is perfect for the job because ebooks are never gigantic or over 4gb. However, I have two problems: Where can I find some good, 9x-friendly document programs? I'm hoping these programs can open newer pdf and epub files. Is there any good, free TTS voices out there? Microsoft Sam, Mary, and Mike are pretty robotic sounding. I don't expect human-like voices, but something less more comprehensible like L&H Michael and Michelle. I have not tested Microsoft Anna yet (if her voice works, I'm content). Not 9x related- does anybody know where I could obtain the Siri voice used on mobile phones?
  18. Great, what about Z370, untested, or its not working? Performance of new 6 cores look nice. I also forgot on 2066.
  19. Yeah, what is wrong with that? Same question about different OSes. Third was in other thread, is normal to assume that not everybody watching all threads..
  20. YouTube WORKING! With Opera 12.02

    Something I noticed maybe a few weeks ago is that my work win-98 system can play youtube video's in opera 12.02. It's sort of a back-burner project to see how it is different than my home win-98 setup...
  21. ... For Pete's sake, please don't give the devs of ShareX such bad ideas (only joking, of course... ). I am a fan of portable applications myself, that's why I opted to go for the portable package - one additional advantage of such packages is you simply do away with a proper installer (mach, NSIS, Inno Setup, msi etc) and the OS checks/blocks they might contain, especially in the case of software not meant "officially" for your chosen OS So, is that a ShareX 64-bit installation made by the installer? I know you have a 64-bit Vista OS, if the app was 32-bit only, I'd expect it to end up in "C:\Program Files (x86)\ShareX" ?

  27. Windows XP Spotter (the club)

    Quote from website linked by SDfox Was certainly bullshitgenerated... http://www.bullshitgenerator.com/ My finding below... Photo is nearly unreadable, but that's the best I could get with my old cellphone camera... so for the sake of going on well with topic's rules From internet cafe at train station. Suprisingly, the place was still quite populated at low-volume hours. Few of them still exist in Poland in big cities. All PC's had XP, and a Firefox that looked like version 3.0 or some other oldie-but-goodie :>
