    Another victim for Windows 10...I have a customer that was in the middle of sending an email when the was a power cut that nealy took the whole town... After coming back on he restarted the computer and it tried to repair itself...nada He came to me and I tried to repair the start functions....nada... Started diskpart and checked volumes.... his C: drive was Raw....nice....now the only positive thing to come out of this is I always create a recovery image...and that when I create partitions always move the user from C: Now before I even think of doing a recovery install need to backup all his files... Windows 10 "Worst Crap Ever" In my book is really living up to its name.... bookie32

    My Win 7 still looks like Win 98! I hate CPU/GPU-gobbling special effects like transparency and the like, and the one thing I never liked about XP was the Luna theme. I always thought it made my windows look "fat." OTOH I think Win 8+ went too far in the opposite direction with the "plain box" look. Metro reminds me of Win 3.1 and the Program Mangler! It's OK @Jody Thornton; it's an opinion thread. Being neutral would kind of defeat the purpose I'm on both sides of this debate. I use Win 7 but also have Win XP mode running in a VM. Originally I just needed a 32-bit OS for older apps, and XP mode comes free with Win 7 Professional, so it was the obvious choice. But I find myself using XP mode a lot for newer apps too, like when the corporate-mandated Symantec antivirus gets a bit too aggressive and deletes Snadboy's Revelation and Opera Password Viewer from the Win 7 side . (Symantec doesn't "see" what's in my XP .vhd .) I often forget passwords and need help from those "hacking tools" Symantec doesn't want me to have.

    I found the solution to create a .reg file with this code and execute it: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager] "RegisteredProcessors"=dword:00040960 Then your Windows 2000 will support up to 65,536 cores. It works on Windows 2000 Pro, Server, Advanced Server, Datacenter Server. Also Windows XP and 2003.

    Have a look here at MDGx's site (Win98 page). Find any updates that you are specifically looking for and note the KB (Knowledge Base) number associated with the update(s) you are searching for. Use MDGx's Hotfix Request Form to see if the Spanish version of any of the updates are still available. If this doesn't work, you might try searching the web for the specific file names of any updates you're looking for. (example: KB# = 168115; English Hotfix name 168115US8.EXE [kb#+lang/country+8{windows 98}.exe]; not sure offhand what replaces "US" in Spanish filenames) If this doesn't work I'm not sure what else might help. If you do find any updates, be sure to archive them and upload them somewhere where others may benefit before they are lost forever.
