  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 m

  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 lau

  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 woul

  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 ex

  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 diffe

  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 insta

  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.

  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.

  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
