  2. @HoppaLong Please read the following article, see section Method 3: Reconfigure the boot.ini: http://www.vernalex.com/guides/sysprep/hal.shtml Doing this way you don't need to replace any files (like the other tool posted by caliber), simply choose a boot entry. Unfortunately, don't have much time to thoroughly explain certain things. I'm usually messing with the complicated stuff. My patcher shouldn't have issues with USB2 and definitively works with KMDF drivers (from VIA and Fresco Logic). Be warned that some badly written drivers may cause issues with PAE enabled. PS: Just check that russian patcher, it is just an automated installer for Dibya's patch and has the same issues.
  3. have some news... keyx ver 191027 will dropped, ie reverted to ver 190424. it was bad idea. instead improving KeyX, now i write new tool, specially for VM window resize to aspect... new tool is bit more smart. it will called from Window Menu via right mouse click on window header - no more idiotic workaround for PCem etc. alse new tool will look real guest area size, w/o menubar/statusbar. ie aspect 4:3 will very precise... now i want ask, what name is better for my new tool (Virtual Machine [Guest/Client] [Window/Area] [Sizer/Resizer]): VMCAR/VMGAR/VMGASes /etc... or somewhat other?
  4. Mcinwwl posted about the distorted audio issue: "It still affects all the videos on VOD.TVP.pl. Polish national TV provider, might be geofenced. It was reported first time over a year ago by @kitaro1, so won't likely change..." ____________________ In about:config, click New/string: general.useragent.override.vod.tvp.pl then value: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:55.0) Gecko/20100101 Goanna/4.0 Firefox/55.0 This works on Serpent55 / Moebius here, with test link "Ceremonia Otwarcia" on vod.tvp.pl: https://vod.tvp.pl/video/eurowizja,ceremonia-otwarcia,45326534 - no more distorted audio, no geofencing...
  5. That was from ReactOS 0.4.3 and it didn't work, so I deleted it. I'll upload a newer version soon; when I do, let us know if it works for you.
  6. There had been numerous reports of Win7s automatically upgrading to Windows 10 ever since it became a thing. I haven't seen any reports of it since Windows 7 went EOS.
  7. What in this world makes sense anymore? I did try all possible tricks, in time - especially with gmail it's impossible, they must have all possible decryption algorithms together with backdoors. Linux or Windows, it doesn't matter - it's all on the mail server side. But since I don't have the ANSI compiled executables (on this machine at least) and neither recipient's e-mail address, it's a moot point. The old AHK 1.0 can be downloaded from the official AutoHotkey download page, the compiler is included, and the scripts can also be launched as-is through a double-click. If an update() error occurs, please copy the update.ahk script from the NetMeterEx/Lib folder to C:/Program Files/AutoHotkey/Lib (create the Lib folder if it doesn't exist).
  8. I actually have one of those RAM packs, the 16K equivalent for the Timex Sinclair 1000... A system before my time, and even with the advancements available for it today, a system I decided not to bother doing anything with.
  9. Today
  10. @VistaLover This is off-topic, but there is a workaround for Otter to get YouTube and Facebook videos working on XP. You need to download this - https://otter-browser.org/tmp/otter-browser-xp2.zip Then you need to copy the "Lib" folder over from that version to the current version. I did that ages ago, and it still works. See this thread for more detail.
  11. This is my situation: Not always "liberation.eulerian.net" is blocked by ABE of Noscript: The block of the list is OK.
  12. It does not make sense though about not being able to post an exe inside a compression file. What if the file is placed inside a folder and renamed txt file or something and then zipped? It might be a Linux thing/mail setting?
  13. Lots of great info as usual, major pity I'll forget most of it soon (just hoping to find it again later when some day needed), but a simpler lesson to take away from this: Contrary to previous theory, Mozilla-browsers are NOT the only ones supporting modern (?) ciphers on older systems. Just about every other browser can do it too - EXCEPT one: IE!
  14. Unfortunately it doesn't work, at least not with all providers. Stumbled into this too many times to even attempt it again. And I don't even have a recent version of the script compiled with the old ANSI AHK. So it's best to self-compile from the sources. As a bonus here's the sources to a RAM/swap/CPU/system load monitoring script that I've been using back on 98SE and XP; this one can be compiled on Unicode AHK v1.1 too (for Win2000+): MemPanel1101_src.7z
  15. It should be okay to send an executable inside a zip file etcetera.
  16. A few years ago I developed such thing in AutoHotkey. It's not perfect but it did work in an updated 98SE as well as in XP and 7. Now I'm on Linux and dunno how current version works, if at all. Also dunno how to send you an executable, considering how anal all mail providers have become, and the fact that I no longer have an online repository that I could link to. Maybe attaching the source code here would work, but you'd have to install the old AHK version ( and compile the script yourself or run it as is. There may be problems when the settings file doesn't exist, I never got around to fix that issue. If you need more help you may contact me privately. NetMeterEx1509-15011_src.7z
  17. Working great on Windows 10 1909 (OS Build 18363.476) as well. Just needs the version check to be updated... I'm guessing the errors showing up all over that log are due to version check failing to recognize the build as compatible. debug.log
  18. Since using this system online more than anticipated, got tired of the manual certificate update workaround mentioned on page 3 of this thread. The workaround is okay if routinely visiting the same old sites but most recent browsing has been visiting new sites, exploring and learning more about Windows 98. This was already mentioned by siria on page 3 and others have brought it up too, just being thorough. A simple way to update certs even in old SeaMonkey v1.1.19 is to replace the outdated cert8.db file with an up-to-date file from a recent version of SeaMonkey. I imagine this would also work for older Firefox. If you don't have ready access to an updated cert8.db file, download the latest SeaMonkey for 32-bit Linux from https://www.seamonkey-probject.org and extract the downloaded *.tar.bz2 file, which 7-Zip handles nicely. The default location is C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\default\your_profile\. Beats constantly handling new certificate popups the manual way.
  19. Thanks for the feedback jaclaz, very creative system monitor. Also came across this site, which has TinyResMeter (92kb) in the system section, unfortunately it does not monitor network activity. Lots of other goodies at this site too. https://tinyapps.org Sometimes almost panic thinking this great old software is going to disappear but can't download the entire internet. Seems i'm always late to the game, enjoying Windows 98 after most have left, enjoying games most everyone has forgotten. Maybe i'm mistaken, i always thought Windows 98 had a built-in network activity monitor. I don't have one running and didn't see it in any of the network adapater or networking configurations. Maybe it just pertained to dial-up or i'm confusing it with Windows XP.
  20. And - you know - when some time later I bought a RAM expansion kit ( a so-called RAM-Pack) for the ZX81: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAM_pack taking the memory from 1 KB to 16 KB, thus I could run "very complex" programs, and I had to make a wooden support for the computer and pack to avoid the "wobble" problem, there were already rumours of (at an extremely steep price) an expansion up to 64 KB! You may now understand, how nowadays that Mega/Giga/Tera bytes are considered peanuts I still have preferences for small, tiny programs. jaclaz
  21. your link is not working any working link please ? i need this !
  22. Well the laptop is a Asus V6000 model V6X00VA , V6VA-X02P. Its a laptop for Windows XP with a Pentium M 2GHZ, with 2GB ram with a ATI mobility Radeon X700 128mb. Under Windows 98 with system.ini i limit the ram and the vcache to 512mb (1FFFF). I put a dx diag from my XP session, I will reinstall windows 98 with the command you tell me i thought install with the Unattended Boot CD for 98 would fix most of my issue. By the way i got glitch graphic even with the C8_*.inf file Edit: So i did a full reinstall of Windows 98 with the command "Install /P i" (cause french version replace setup by install), then i put back drivers i got available (sd, ms,xd cards, lan , sound) and also i unchek steering in the pc bus then i run the driver installer its go decompress the file in the ATI/Support folder then in ATI/Support/6.2/Drivers i put my modified INF with only one line added the one you told me. Then i make a restart and i got this screen : I remove back the driver, install the cpanel, force windows install back the driver then still get this screen with windows working behind (keyboard, sound everything work in except the screen). DxDiagXP.txt DxDiag98.txt
  23. At the very bottom of the first post of the thread at the Russian site, do you see "4.9MB" followed by a "U" then a ~40 character alphanumeric string? That is a torrent magnet link. Assuming you know how to download with a torrent client using a magnet link(*), then you should be able to get the file from there. The link works, is well seeded, and downloads quickly. Cheers and Regards (*) If you don't, you really need to learn how to do this. You are bound to need this in the future, so it is a VERY easy and good skill and tool to have in your toolbox.
  24. ^^This. If you have downloaded new symbols, then hitting "Cancel" will work every time. A minor annoyance, but still better than having to tolerate the unaesthetic Windows 10 UI abortion without AeroGlass. I am also hopeful that @bigmuscle will update it to have 1909 compatibility. I have been a long time (since 2013) financial supporter of his work and will gladly, and without hesitation, make another donation if he does.
  25. caliber, I've tried using every combination of words from that image you uploaded. Must have performed three dozen Google searches. I cannot find a link for that app. I typed this sentence into Google: "All 32-bit editions of Windows starting with Windows 2000 are limited to 4GB is not because of any technical constraint on 32-bit operating systems." The name Geoff Chappell appeared in several of the Google search results. If you've got the app without a link please upload it somewhere so I can download it. Thanks caliber.
  26. What's the Manufacturer/Model and specs of the laptop you're using? This will help us figure out if there may be other issues contributing to the problem. Most likely you will need to first install Windows 98SE with ACPI disabled (SETUP /P I) if you have not already done so. When I tried with ACPI enabled on my laptop I got an unrecoverable series of crashes. It's been several months, and I don't have the machine readily accessible at the moment, but from what I can remember you should only need to uncheck one option box to disable PCI steering. Other changes may produce different results and these may vary yet again according to the hardware in use. Your changes to C8_30314.INF should have been sufficient; you don't really need to change anything else but you will have to point the Update Driver wizard to the 9X_INF folder manually rather than depending on Catalyst Setup. I would just use one line and truncate the entry to just ""ATI MOBILITY RADEON X700 Series" = RV410_ENU, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_5652" eliminating the REV, SUBSYS, and CC codes, as these get really super device-specific for no reason as they all point to the same section. Now, C9_30314.INF does NOT have all of the required sections to install a RV410_ENU device. This may be the reason for the crashes if you were using this INF at this point rather than your C8_30314.INF, which does have all of the required sections. Simply reverting to your C8_30314.INF may work; if not, or if you experience crashes/instability, start over using 98SE with ACPI disabled as above.
  27. It's there for me, under "Connected Domains": Adding and enabling the filter list you linked to, blocks it (green colour turns to red) ! Screenshot of the uB0 logger with the tracking script blocked: I've opened that actual script inside a private tab and it's indeed nasty...
