  1. i think it was possible to get 1050ti working by manually adding the device in the inf files, but the performance is very limited.

  3. There are many reasons Windows 7 is an objectively superior OS to Windows 10 and why I will use it until I die. This is one of them: Naturally, Windows 10 users won't get this notification. That would, you know, actually improve the UX, so that would be anti-Windows 10. Guess you'll have to wait for the Sunday paper to tell you what you missed.

  5. Thanks for the explanation, @VistaLover I guess NM28 will stay mostly unused here as long as NM27 works fine for me... Ctrl-TAB is limited to 6 previews as can be seen from your screenshot. For now i've adopted the Tab Groups extension, the only thing i don't like about it is that the grid covers the whole Serpent window, but i'll get used to this.

  6. Hi Gansangriff. You have a sweet setup, thanks for sharing. My router is proprietary from my internet provider. I've always wanted to flash or 'open source' a router but haven't done so yet. So aside from the hardware firewall (proprietary, query backdoors) most blocking is done at the system level. Lots gets on my nerves, thanks for asking. Don't use Flash, no Smartphone or closed-source 'apps', disable most software update checking and online access, use a custom user.js file for Mozilla-based browsers, disable "features" like 'pocket' and 'sync', avoid the "cloud", don't trust password managers, minimize JavaScript, block advertisements, encrypt sensitive data, etc. Probably be living out of a van soon, pay cash for everything and use a read-only OS with a roaming laptop. Now where did i put my medication ;) All systems here (GNU/Linux, Windows 98, Windows XP) have their own software firewalls. All browsers either don't support JavaScript or have it fully or partially blocked. My Windows 98 system uses an ~13,000 entry HOSTS file from MVPS. On GNU/Linux such a large HOSTS file would slow down the system, so NoScript and Bluhell Firewall is used there with SeaMonkey. I coded a Bash front-end for youtube-dl, which allows quick terminal access to various video sites. I coded a Bash scripted web browser that parses as much data as possible from Wget fetches. Also coded some web scraping scripts to avoid visiting bloated sites and automate daily data collection (news, weather, comic strips, etc). Fair amount of coding and upkeep but it's a hobby anyway. For now it's all good, don't get much bloat either and systems have little overhead.

  7. This looks suspicious. I've never seen these parameters be used automatically, only when i manually include them out of curiosity. Start regedit and check the value of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\BootExecute

  8. NM27 (Tycho ~ Mozilla 38 platform) and NM28 (UXP ~ Mozilla ESR 52 platform) profiles are, in essence, non-interchangeable; I had always preached in the past in these forums that the only safe/sane way to upgrade to NM28 (from NM27) is to create a fresh pristine NM28 profile and then selectively transfer items from the NM27 one... If you won't adhere to that advice, then be aware that the profile-upgrade-process works only one-way (27->28); once a NM27 profile has been touched by NM28, it is rendered in many aspects corrupted for NM27 use... As others have said, the workaround is to launch via command-line arguments: NM27: "path-to-palemoon.exe[27]" -no-remote -profile "path-to-NM27-profile" NM28: "path-to-palemoon.exe[28]" -no-remote -profile "path-to-NM28-profile" Paths to profiles can be absolute or relative to the respective .EXEs; just to be on the safe side, I'd use absolute paths... If you don't include the -no-remote switches, then you won't be able to launch both; but I strongly discourage simultaneous running of both versions - and accidents do happen, so back-up profiles regularly... ... But you are forgetting that they are different applications, more specifically St52 uses Australis while NM28 doesn't (and this is app-specific code you're requesting to change...). To elaborate some more, the infinitely wise Mozilla devs () first crippled the browser.allTabs.previews Firefox feature, see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=844952 and its many duplicates, and then, in a fashion we've been very accustomed to during the massacre that led to Quantum, they were unable to fix back, so they axed the pref altogether, along with supporting code: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=670684 While this isn't exactly what you asked for, in Serpent 52 you can enable the pref browser.ctrlTab.previews (default is false) and by clicking CTRL+TAB you get a graphical preview of 6 of your (many) opened tabs: ... but when you select "Show all XX tabs" (29 in my screenshot), this will only trigger the "List All Tabs" drop-down menu (which, incidentally, doesn't include pinned tabs ) ...

  9. I've finally tracked down my printing issues in 360EE v11, v12, and v13. While I can't speak for WHY this was happening, I found a fix for it nonetheless (only tested in v12 and v13). Whenever I would attempt to print to my wireless printer via 360EE, the browser would LOCK UP requiring a process-kill via Task Manager and a reboot of my wireless router to get the printer back! 360EE would "scan" for printers and find one of my Roku Express HD Streaming Media Players instead! The then-idle Roku would then steal the IP Address for the then-idle wireless printer and 360EE would try to print to the Roku which would just ignore the "data" being sent to it. The "fix" is to disable 360EE's "stupid" print preview 'feature'. In v12, add " --kiosk-printing --disable-print-preview" to the Parameters line in 360Loader.ini and go to chrome://flags and DISABLE "Enable Cloud Printer Handler". In v13, add " --kiosk-printing --disable-print-preview" to the Parameters line in 360Loader.ini, no chrome://flags needed changed in v13. Shew! What a Relief! That was kind of a nightmare, lol.

  10. Greetings! I use Windows 98 FE for day-to-day operation, music, cinema, internet and games. This is the basic (and the most basic) system. Here's a message like this from outside (using GoogleChrome software, shipped from Virtual PC 5.0):

  11. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/windows-finger-command-abused-by-phishing-to-download-malware/ It is interesting to note that Finger.exe is also available in Windows XP. The exe is in the "System32" folder. This type of attack will probably never affect our OS. But considering the rarity of use of the Finger.exe command, it might be interesting to consider blocking it. Adding a rule to block the connection in your firewall has the same effect. P.S. For OS after W.XP, for example w.10 x64, the rules are at least 2 because you also need to lock the exe in "syswow64".

  12. It's indirect protection. If they change the method of attack it will be in vain. I personally prefer to use a direct block. I put a custom rule in NVT OSArmor that blocks Finder.exe: [%PROCESS%: *\finger.exe] In OSes later than W.XP it is easy to get a firewall hardening for the most abused commands via the tool below: https://hard-configurator.com/download/ LOLBin - Add If a rule is not in the list it is easy to add it.

  16. Probably not... except if hardcoding a full path to a specific profile in the commandline. But mixing up those default folders is probably a very bad idea. 1) What I'm doing with any Mozilla browsers if possible, is to use portable versions, with profiles inside program folder. 2) If not portable, am using the Profile Manager, to juggle multiple profile folders inside the same settings folder. So far I just let it ask me at every startup which of the profiles shall be used, but it has preselected the "last used" profile, and occasionally I click blindly too quickly, after having used a different browser version last time, and oops... ;-) Luckily no fatal disaster yet, my non-portable browsers seem all too old anyway. 3) A safe way, after having created multiple profiles with Profile Manager, is to hardcode a specific profile subfolder in the commandline for the browser start. 4) Another tricky way roytam1 has included in his special fx36 fork (firefox 3.6 with TLS1.2): the program folder contains a bat-file with a hardcoded path to profile folder in this same (program) folder. If starting the browser with this bat-file, it's like being portable :-) .

  20. Windows 8.1 is a SFF/tablet/emerging market SKU, which could only be the reason why it was installed on that HP. As an example, in the US, that OS would not be allowed to be put on that hardware, as can be seen in the specs which primarily shows Windows 7. https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03364089 If you had purchased this PC new from HP and it came with this OS, then you would need to get the recovery media from HP. Otherwise, you'd need to get a new license for an OS, Windows 8.1 or otherwise for reinstall. Because Windows 8.1 with Bing is not a retail edition, the installation media is not made available to the public.

  21. This has got a little weird. I can play the sample videos, but actually not the "DreamScene Content". So I checked with my non-w7mfplated VM and it is capable of both. While with W7 media foundation, it only plays wmv content and not mpg content. The sample videos are wmv and the "dreamscene content" is mpg. That may be one of the main reasons why DreamScene for W7 wasn't well received, but need to check further. Update: installing K-Lite codec pack basic 15.9 has fixed the dreamscene issues.

  28. Well, @Jaguarek62 was right when presuming people here would be familiar with any of the standard messages from any module of an NT-Family OS, simply because it actually is a reusable template commonly seen, as @asdf2345 nicely explained. Bear with me, please, your going like ... ... with all due respect and wishing to cause no offense but just state a known fact, just shows how people from the younger generations are more sensitive than us old timers. While you're right about the rules and all, you're failing to factor in the different generational sensibilities (we have members ranging from tweeners to 80+ years old, here at MSFN) : *nobody* here wanted to disrespect you nor offend you, and your participation is quite welcome, but older people like me tend to be seen as rude by younger people, nowadays, when, in fact, we just mean to be straightforward.

  31. The English requirement on the forum is for text posts, not for screenshots. Our users are from all over the world and we have no expectation that the language on their computers is in English. If you see something in a screenshot in another language and you do not know what it says, you can use an OCR translator, or transcribe it yourself into a translator program, or worse case, just ask the poster to translate for you. Otherwise, ignore it if you do not want to go through the effort to try to help someone.

  41. I think the t530/w530 would do better than the t520/w520 because Ivy Bridge is 22nm and performs as well as Sandy bridge equivalents while using less power and also because Intel HD graphics 4000 is better than hd3000. If you hate the chiclet keyboard then you may be able to replace it with a t520 style 7row keyboard.

  44. Mostly using this config: -Intel Xeon X5670 2.93 GHz 6C/12T -12 GB DDR3-1333 -NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800 (which is like a GTX 260; I think Santa will bring something that brings me into the DX11 age ) -1 TB 7200 rpm HDD (a WD Purple IIRC) -500 GB 5400 rpm Seagate HDD I remember when Vista came out and always wanted to use it, but only got to use it 12 years after release. And now look at me. Since I first heard about kernel extensions, I always wanted to make some, though my attempts were always unsuccessful. At one point towards the end of 2019, I was experimenting with changing new win7+ functions to older ones present on Vista, specifically for Waterfox Classic. I got the UI to load but it would crash immediately. Then I learned more and more about the process and decided to choose an OS where a kernel extension effort would: -not overlap with existing ones -be plausible -and also be workable on my bare metal So I chose Windows Vista! Vista takes about 40 seconds to boot for me, compared to about 25 seconds for XP x64 and 7 x64 on my main workstation with a 7200 rpm HDD. While the boot process is quite uniform for me on XP and 7, the sequence can be quite erratic on Vista, with the periods of ntoskrnl-stored startup screen and blank screen with cursor (pre-orb animation) seemingly varying in length per boot (sometimes my monitor gives me a no signal message post startup-screen; other times it doesn't). Perhaps fragmentation is a factor (I have Vista follow the standard weekly defrag schedule), but I also see a possibility that this occurrence of boot time variance to whatever is responsible for causing usermode (don't believe I have seen kernelmode components fail to load) library/executable load failure on Haswell and up. This in itself is a major Achilles heel of the operating system and needs to be resolved somehow if I were to successfully create kernelmode extensions that allow hardware typically accompanying recent CPUs to fully function. X58 is period correct for Vista and my machine does work very well with it. Just wondering; do you have indexing and SuperFetch enabled? That's responsible for most of it, and both should definitely be disabled on an SSD. I had noticed that my disk I/O indicator light was on constantly for awhile; Process Hacker said it was a low-priority read operation by a system process on a Vista ISO I had recently used in a VM. After disabling SuperFetch, that stopped. It's not going to be of much use if it's going to be for something used so rarely. The SuperFetch algorithm must have prioritized it so highly because of its size and recent usage.

  45. My specs: Intel i5 8250U 8GB RAM 250GB SSD Windows Vista Home Premium x64 (German) I started using Vista in 2008, after our XP PC refused to start. Back then, I did not know that it was a driver error which led to the crash and not a hardware error (Nowadays I am the PC specialist in our family lol), so we bought a new PC. I cant remeber the processor but I know it had 2GB RAM and ran Business x32. Vista was very nice, we used it till 2013, before we upgraded to Windows 7. I remember that Vista did not support IE10/11 and Office 2013, which were the two major problems with it. We didnt use Windows 7 for a long time (I think only till 2014). In 2015 we upgraded to Windows 8.1, which was very fast in comparison to any other OS I had used before. When Windows 10 came out, our PC couldnt handle, so we made a fresh Clean Install of 8.1 and even nowadays it still runs veryy fine (we upgraded the RAM to 4GB)

  46. Yes, even I have experienced a little delay even on SSD, but I found Win7, 8.1 and 10 to be slower for mysterious reasons. Maybe the SSD is a little bit of a bottleneck as my A400 SSD has no DRAM cache. So I think a Samsung EVO SSD or Crucial MX500 SSD should further improve the performance and speed up boot time.

You can use the pre-EOL updates from the repository provided by @greenhillmaniac or from another zip file provided by Josh Davidson over at Youtube with a tutorial to install all the pre-EOL updates. This method works ONLY for an online Vista image. I don't know about update integration. Link to the video: https://youtu.be/zCxW4DXvK_s Hope this helps
