  1. Thanks to 0patch we have some more info: https://blog.0patch.com/2020/03/micropatching-unknown-0days-in-windows.html I went to check the PFM files: "open with Windows Font Viewer" start - run - fonts - double click on a font and you will see the Windows font viewer. No type of PFB file on my PC. The MMM file type is considered a media file, and opened with Media Player. So I created a new type of PFB file that is opened with I.E.8 which in my pc is blocked by a Novirusthanks OSArmor rule: Also changed the type of PFM file with I.E.8. For now, the MMM file type remains unchanged.

  2. No crashes of dwm.exe without AG on my 2 different computers. It's not Windows issue. I think, AG just didn't support 752 build.

  3. I had contacted bigmuscle about the same issue I'm having and on his testing, its the Windows 10 Cumulative Update Build 1909 (Build 183623.752) update that's broken and DWM randomly crashes even without Aero Glass installed. I think all we can do is wait till Microsoft releases and update that fixes the issue with the DWM crashes and perhaps in the meantime avoid the Windows 183623.752 update if wanting to use Aero Glass.

  4. Why must there be so much JavaScript bloat. It always gets justified with security, modern, clean and responsive. Does anyone remember "Feather", a light-weight front-end to the site? In New Moon, the "polymer" YouTube is slower than the previous layout in Opera (and Opera is very slow). The "mobile" layout loads fast. But I can't right-click on a link to bring up the context menu. It gets interpreted as a left click and the link is followed.

  5. It really comes down to how the software uses the processor. Here's the Ark comparison: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/compare.html?productIds=83359,82765 The memory bandwidth and speed is better on the 1650, but the CPU cache is better on the 2640. The 2640 is also designed to be used in dual-proc boards, hence why it supports QPI and the other one does not (look at the Bus Speed numbers.) In a real world scenario, the program itself may have a determining factor for which of these two CPUs are the ideal choice, however it is also possible that the observable difference may be negligible.

  8. before doing anything else, the very first update is to install the latest available Servicing Stack update (SSU) for Win8.1 manually download & install KB3173424 servicing stack update; also install KB3184143 update and run GWXControlPanel or Never10 to prevent any unwanted upgrades to Win10 for Win8 (or Win8.0) manually download & install KB3173426 servicing stack update and reboot; from past experiences with Win8, I had to restart the computer after installing the KB3173426 update edit: btw, the KB3110329 update does need to get installed, regardless of order (and whether the latest cumulative rollup is installed or not) as it is offered thru WU (windows update) on Win8/8.1 OSes
