    I've changed my mind. I'm going to keep it up. Y'all have inspired me to not give up. So, XP x64 will remain my main OS for a long time; I can still squeeze more life into it.

    I have always thought that having the latest is never the best. The latest operating system (or now version of Windows 10) is the worst thing you can have for security. Computers must be updated but not to the latest version. For example, it is better to have Windows 1803 updated than 1809 updated. Microshit uses our computers as a test bench and the correct updates are passed on to companies after 4 months or more. The proof of this is in the Windows 10 itself, update options and selection of the download semi-annual channel.

    I wanna tell you something that happened to me. I have a network populated by Windows XP machines, all patched and with Avast and they are all connected to internet and they use it on a daily basis for any sort of stuff. There are other machines in the network that are running other OS like Fedora Linux with Nod32 antivirus and Android with Avast as well. Last but not least, there are virtual machines with Win10, Win98 and other versions of Windows for testing purposes, but they are not accessible from the outside world. Recently we decided to setup a test bench in bare metal, running Windows Server 2019 and connect it to internet and the outside world. We've got an email from the ISP stating that one of our machines has probably been compromised as it has been used in an attack. Later on, we found out that the attacker managed to get access to the machine by using a vulnerability in the RDP protocol of Windows Server 2019. The machine had all the latest updates installed, but no antivirus or firewall other than the default Microsoft ones (it was a test bench after all). It's funny how someone who attacked a network full of Windows XP machines just ignored them, went straight to the one running Windows Server 2019 and managed to compromise it... It surely makes you think...

    An update about the Wayback Machine saving process. I finally got some courage and, after thinking, searching, reading and even asking for help (a big thank you to them! ), wrote a Python script that automates that said saving process. It's sloooooow but restartable (i.e. will continue with the first link left unprocessed), so it will take a while to go through the links @ED_Sln posted before. But rest assured that, eventually, all those links will appear on the Wayback Machine! Right now (at the time of writing), 284 links had been processed

    I can control myself, therefore no public download links! Honestly, MS can integrate even more censorship modules and other nonsense in their current "permanent construction site", which goes past me. I continue to use Windows XP!

    @artomberus ... Actually, the very last build of Vivaldi on the stable (release) branch that would run on Vista SP2 is 1.1.453.59, based on Chromium 50.0.2661.102 source code: The screengrab is actually from an unofficial portable installation (in PAF format); search for it on the web... Official link to the v1.1.453.59 (32-bit) installer: https://downloads.vivaldi.com/stable/Vivaldi.1.1.453.59.exe The very last build of Vivaldi on the snapshot (dev) channel that would run on Vista SP2 was indeed 1.2.470.11, based on Chromium 50.0.2661.89 source code: (... again, this is a portable installation in PAF format). The relevant vivaldi blog entry is: https://vivaldi.com/blog/snapshots/snapshot-1-2-470-11-editable-gestures-2/ but, as you found out, ALL binary links are 404'ed now... TBH, both builds date to May 2016, which means they are probably unsafe to browse today's web with, not to mention that many sites have dropped long ago Chromium 50 compatibility; YMMV, but poor site/page rendering is highly probable ; if you plan to install uB0, 1.16.18/1.16.20 is the last one (but hard to find as a .CRX file) that successfully works with those old builds... I only have on disk the 32-bit version of Vivaldi 1.2.470.11[dev] (file Vivaldi.1.2.470.11.exe, dig. sig. of Wed, May 4th 2016, 17:08:01), but I am unsure as to whether I am allowed to share it here... Don't have time currently to search exhaustively for an archived link for it (sadly, web.archive.org doesn't appear to have salvaged it )...

    I am opposed to the idea that RT should have to 'worry' about some 'internalized' ADD ON working with his Browsers. It seems like that ADD ONS (LEGACY) can 'stand on their own' -- so LET them do that. (Evil Humor) And, @VistaLover enjoys solving SOME riddles related to 'Ghosts in the Old Machines' https://o.rths.cf/boc-uxp/ RT has some ADD ONS (*.xpi files) listed for download at his above URL for BNAV Browser. https://legacycollector.org/firefox-addons/ This above URL has Firefox LEGACY ADD ONS too. Just a straight forward download, no install involved. https://legacycollector.org/firefox-addons/722/index.html NoScript Security Suite

    We are all well aware of the mess WannaCry caused, yet it was mostly due to unpatched Win7 machines, not the ones running Windows XP, so here we are, years apart, with computers running Windows XP. We can see the programme opened in which the doctor was filling the forms and the obvious bar at the very bottom showing that it's Windows XP (no POSReady or whatever, plain XP). I wonder whether these machines are patched or not... (If you are wondering what that medicine is, it's something to encourage you to p*** and it's not for me. I was "lucky", though, 'cause another doctor asked the one I was talking to a consultation and as soon as she walked out of the room I took the chance to take a picture of the screen. When she came back, she suspected nothing).

    I agree that someone from MCP coming onto this thread and striking a disagreeable attitude, making threats, and generally being unpleasant, doesn't exactly predispose folks here to try to accommodate their wishes. And it's also true that to the extent there are "branding" issues with unofficial builds, they are the fault of MCP themselves, not @roytam1. So I can sort of understand having a spiteful attitude toward MCP and their demands. But I think we already decided we weren't undertaking a full rebranding of New Moon or Serpent anyhow. At this point, all we're talking about is getting rid of the "you've successfully upgraded" Web page and redirecting a few Web pages that come up when users of @roytam1's browsers use the Help menu. It's just not that big of a deal, and it's worth doing anyhow for the benefit of New Moon / Serpent users (not to mention msfn.org, which stands to gain a few more members). If it eases tensions with MCP a bit too, so much the better. (And if someone's really stubborn about it, they can switch all their prefs back in about:config anyhow.)

    I think @VistaLover has a point, here. Changing both app.support.* strings to default straight here to this thread on MSFN is easy to do and might be a good 1st step. This @roytam1 might implement already in his next installment of the compiled versions of all browsers he's providing modded versions for XP. It's much simpler than rebranding, uncontroversial and breaks nothing, while being an incontrovertible proof something is actually being done to proactively prevent people from going to PM forums for support.

    @foxzzy First, I want to welcome you to the MSFN forums ... However, and any forum admin will probably agree with me, it's not polite or even compliant with forum rules to have your second post be a slightly reworded version of your first one, asking about the exact same thing... You made your first post here: <thread link invalidated because of thread merge: it's the 1st post on this thread, now> and @Mathwiz was kind enough to provide you with links to the main MSE thread, where your query should have been answered, beyond any doubt... Did you ever bother reading the relevant posts (found in the "last-ish" thread pages...) ? You obviously didn't like the answer you received and you opted to come back with this duplicate query/thread... This is a real faux pas... MSE/XP is dead; first, M$ made its engine non-XP compatible; an interim mitigation was applied, but the final end was imminent: M$ also changed the "format" (for lack of a better term) of the actual definitions to be only compatible with the updated (non-XP compatible) engine; any attempt to patch those files will invalidate their file signatures/HASHes and render them "corrupt", unable to be used even with the old engine... What you're asking is for someone to deeply patch official Microsoft files (both engine DLL and definition files); even if some able person manages this, it wouldn't be allowed to post here "hacked" Microsoft files... FWIW, MSE is kept going by M$ only for the sake of Windows 7 (and they are being gracious to those few Vista users, too); once Win7 reaches EoS in several months, the future is unclear for "legacy" MSE (replaced by updated WD in Win8+)...

Replaced Monthly Rollup with the new KB4503273 (located on the root directory of the repository) Added Security Only Updates, KB4499180 and KB4503287 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)") Replaced Internet Explorer Cumulative Update with KB4503259 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)") Replaced .NET Framework Security and Quality with: -KB4495604 for .NET 2.0 SP2 (located in "/NET 2.0 SP2/Security and Quality Rollup") -KB4495596 for .NET 4.5.2 (located in "/NET 4.5.2/Security and Quality Rollup") -KB4495588 for .NET 4.6-4.6.1 (located in "/NET 4.6-4.6.1/Security and Quality Rollup") Added .NET Security Only Updates with: -KB4495609 for .NET 2.0 SP2 (located in "/NET 2.0 SP2/Security Only") -KB4495593 for .NET 4.5.2 (located in "/NET 4.5.2/Security Only") -KB4495587 for .NET 4.6-4.6.1 (located in "/NET 4.6-4.6.1/Security Only") Added a new folder into the root directory of the repository named SHA2 with the Servicing Stack update KB4493730 and KB4474419 (new version that fixes SHA2 support for MSI files) and a readme explaining why these updates are needed Added Extra updates KB4501226 (located in "/Extras") with an updated readme file Guess this could also count has the changelog for updates released this month. If there are any issues do post to warn others. BTW, should I include the .NET Framework 4.7.2 installer and instructions on how to install it? Could be interesting. https://mega.nz/#F!txxRyLzC!1vBMGzMHiL864f3bl1Rj1w

    Today I notice the ads are gone... since I know money has been tight on the forum and I cant personally donate I'm a bit concerned that the forum wont get enough revenue if they stay broken. What's happening with them?

    Where's @Bersaglio? I assume we can just change "192" to "207" in the links below. I'm about to give it a try anyway. Edit: Apparently works fine. (Avast did scan "plugin-container.exe" for me, but didn't find any malware!)

    Alright, so about my server issue: FALSE ALARM. Nothing was compromised As a precaution more security is in place now, though. I’ll hopefully have it back up tomorrow (therefore my installer for roys builds will work again) sorry for any inconvenience about that

    @Mcinwwl Try it with the help of "https://web.archive.org". For this I found a website where the original links of Windows Live Essentials 2009 are available (https://xhavitks.de.tl/Messenger.htm). Now take the desired link, for example from "Download Windows Live Essentials (Messenger) 2009 - Polish (full)" (http://g.live.com/1rewlive3/pl/wlsetup-all.exe). Insert this link into the search of Wayback Machine, I found the best in 2014 (Jun 6). Give the process some time. I've downloaded 41 languages myself, but I have no way to upload them permanently. If anyone has a chance I can upload them, so you can send me a PM.

    Great news! @WinClient5270 will not have to edit the listings for AVG and Avast to add, "Works on build 6002 but causes BSODs on build 6003." (However there could be other build 6003 incompatibilities lurking out there.)

    Success finally. All updates installed and Avast 18.8 running OK now. @Vistapocalypse. Thanks for your link to spiceworks. I was following that thread too and the persistence of @spicehead-3vg61 grabbed the attention of @Peter (Avast) mentioning my original post here at MSFN. The first Avast/AVG micro-update (released in April) did indeed change my registry settings for Csrss as @artomberus showed in his screen shot (but in my case using Avast instead of AVG) but my system was still BSOD on reboot. Avast was showing:- Avast program version 18.8.2356 (build 18.8.4084.0) Virus definitions version 190521-4 After confirmation from @Peter (Avast) on 4th June, I ran the Avast Emergency Updater: (just to be sure) (at this stage I had not seen a difference in the ‘About Avast info’) C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast\AvEmUpdate.exe as detailed here. After a reboot: Avast now showing:- Avast program version 18.8.2356 (build 18.8.4084.0) Virus definitions version 190606-4 It appears that Avast Free (For Home) did not update to program version 19.3 (and later to 19.5) as indicated here for (Avast Business Antivirus) but remains at 18.8, BUT now the second micro-update (within the Virus definition update) (released on 4th June) has resolved the BSOD and I am now up to date with MS Updates...Phew!

    Hello everyone, this time I do not bring a question if not a solution for all users who are still using Windows Vista in 2019, how to install new versions of the .NET Framework in Windows Vista! Tested versions for me: 4.6.2 | 4.7 Requirements to be able to update net framework in Vista to more recent versions: Service Pack 2 installed (I recommend having the platform supplement and all the updates until April 2017) Net Framework 4.6.1 (Latest version compatible tested until moment with Vista) Compressor files like WinRAR or 7zip Warning: You will not be able to use Windows Update again in Vista after installing NET Framework 4.6.2 or 4.7.2, I recommend updating the system with all the updates until April 2017! Let's start with the procedure: Download the net framework version chosen in this case 4.7.2 from the MS page With our file compressor open the executable to install net framework and look for the file ParameterInfo.xml and copy it to the desktop Open the xml and search this line: <BlockIf DisplayText="#(loc.Blocker_UnSupportedOS)" ID="UnSupportedOS"> Replace all this code: <BlockIf DisplayText="#(loc.Blocker_UnSupportedOS)" ID="UnSupportedOS"> <And> <Equals LeftHandSide="Installing" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <Operation /> </Equals> <Or> <Or> <GreaterThanOrEqualTo LeftHandSide="6.1.0" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <TargetOS /> </GreaterThanOrEqualTo> <And> <Equals LeftHandSide="6.2" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <TargetOS /> </Equals> <Equals LeftHandSide="Client" BoolWhenNonExistent="false" Id="IsClient"> <RegKeyValue Location="HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\InstallationType" /> </Equals> </And> </Or> <And> <Equals LeftHandSide="10.0" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <TargetOS /> </Equals> <GreaterThan LeftHandSide="14393" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <RegKeyValue Location="HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\CurrentBuildNumber" /> </GreaterThan> </And> </Or> </And> </BlockIf> For this other code: <BlockIf DisplayText="#(loc.Blocker_UnSupportedOS)" ID="UnSupportedOS"> <And> <Equals LeftHandSide="Installing" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <Operation /> </Equals> <Or> <Or> <GreaterThan LeftHandSide="6.0.0" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <TargetOS /> </GreaterThan> <Equals LeftHandSide="6.1.0" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <TargetOS /> </Equals> </Or> <And> <And Id="Is2k8ServerCore"> <And> <And> <And> <LessThanOrEqualTo LeftHandSide="6.0.0" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <TargetOS /> </LessThanOrEqualTo> <GreaterThan LeftHandSide="6.1.0" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <TargetOS /> </GreaterThan> </And> <Not> <Equals LeftHandSide="Client" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <TargetOSType /> </Equals> </Not> </And> <Exists> <FileVersion Location="%windir%\system32\oclist.exe" /> </Exists> </And> <Exists> <Path Location="%windir%\system32\scregedit.wsf" /> </Exists> </And> <Not> <LessThanOrEqualTo LeftHandSide="4.0.31106.0" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <FileVersion Location="%windir%\System32\mscoree.dll" /> </LessThanOrEqualTo> </Not> </And> </Or> </And> </BlockIf> After saving the file open the net framework executable Open the label that you have installed Vista in this case C and you should find a folder with a long name that includes hexadecimal characters, open it and quickly replace the XML ParameterInfo that you edited. Note: I may still show you that it is not compatible, this is tedious and annoying but try several times as fast as possible to replace the xml ParamenterInfo while the files are being extracted before the installation begins! Net framework updated in Windows Vista!

    Someone may have mentioned this before, but Windows Vista seems to run fine with Haswell if it is installed on another computer and then the hard drive is moved to a Haswell system. I tried this with Windows Vista 32-bit (but it should work with any version) and had no problems arise. I didn't install drivers or do any extensive testing but it seemed to be fine. This was with a Q87 motherboard and an i7-4790 CPU. I do plan on setting up the OS properly in the future, so I'll see if anything changes.

    Even when "Automatic Updates" is turned OFF in the Control Panel, which has been my selected setting since at least 2007, there is an eponymous sevice which is set to "Automatic" by default, which I've always kept untouched. I'm disabling it right now. It might solve the issue in an easily reversible way, IMO, being an alternative to removing the POSReady key. Let's see what happens... Cross your fingers!

    A possible future vulnerability based on that code. It may be that it doesn't even work on Windows XP. Interesting is the possibility offered by Novirusthanks OSA which has 2 specific rules:

    @Nojus2001, you're definitely not alone. A weather forum I used to visit that closed sometime late last year or early this year was revealed to be running on Server 2003 until the bitter end. I'm sure that it's found itself mired into tonnes of big corporate networks too. It makes a wonderful workstation OS as well. And this is my 15-hour-old XP x64 install: :
