  2. The source=hp is how your browser configuration is telling Google that your search originated from a homepage. None of the rest in blue is hard-coded in 360Chrome. Your issue all boils down to this homepage parameter and where it came from. A hard-coded search would have client=aff-cs-360se in the URL location you have source=hp. What did you set up as your 360Chrome's homepage? Do you have any extensions that alter your homepage? Please also verify that you are not directing through a Proxy (or verify that your proxy is not altering your search query).

  3. I did not say that I "can't and won't do anything about it". I did say that if you use my version AS-IS then I do NOT see the behavior that you guys are reporting. AS-IS when you search for "movies" (without the quotes), you should be sent to here -- https://www.google.com/search?q=movies&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8 (even in Incognito, you do not need added extensions) Without knowing a detailed step-by-step process of what you guys did that "broke" the AS-IS functionality then there is nothing for me to do, I cannot repeat what you guys are seeing, I only have the ONE google search engine in my list of search engines. I need to know what process you took that ended up reverting the list of search engines. I cannot repeat what you guys are seeing. I'll do what I can to help, but I need detailed step-by-step process of what reverted the list of search engines.

  4. LOL! Just to bore you all with the history, the reason I have these machines is that I like to have a physically small and light unit that I can carry around easily when I'm away. Those 10.5" screen models all fit nicely in my shoulder bag! The problem with most of those small netbooks/notebooks is they were very quickly superseded by tablets, so they were never really developed into anything more than very basic computers. Almost all of them are very underpowered for anything other than very basic use. The first two Asus EeePCs I had were at least proper miniature Intel based laptop computers, with easily changeable external batteries and things like disk activity lights. The second one could be upgraded to 4GB of memory, which helped it a lot, as did fitting an SSD of course. They were designed for Windows 7, and didn't have high enough resolution screens for Windows 8/8.1 to work properly. I managed to upgrade to Windows 8 and then 8.1, but a lot of the apps wouldn't work, they just crashed the graphics driver, and those that did work needed a registry hack to fool them into thinking it was a 768 screen instead of a 600 screen, but they looked blurry and distorted. No hope of getting Windows 10 to work. That's why I then went for the third Asus machine, the AMD based one. That had a touch screen and supported Windows 8.1 and 10. It was fixed memory (fortunately 4GB was fitted) but was really crawling slow. The problem was the rubbish processor. Eventually I got so annoyed with it every time I tried to use it, that I looked again for an alternative which was the right size, and still had a conventional HDD or SSD so I could transplant my drive yet again, and came across the Lenovo Flex 10. I'm actually very pleased with it, it performs a huge amount better on Windows 10 than the last Asus machine did, and the other two performed on Windows 8.1. It's missing some things that the Asus machines had, like an Ethernet port and SD card slot, and only two USB ports instead of three, but I can live with that. The touchpad is dreadful, even worse than the ones on the Asus machines, and they were bad enough, but as long as I can use a mouse that's fine. I do think this machine will be my last as far as small netbooks go, which is why I'm anxious to get everything I can out of it! Cheers, Dave.

  5. That "might" work, haven't tried it. But I don't see that as the real solution, I think the status bar disappearing was unintentional and therefor a "bug". I feel that the default status bar needs returned, not "replaced" with a "new toolbar". Kind of like "replacing" the IE desktop icon on XP with a "shortcut", the shortcut doesn't have the same context menu as the "real" IE desktop icon.

  6. Deltarune and Undertale both work on the Extended Kernel. I had to rename KERNEL32.DLL.OLD to KERNELOL.DLL in SysWOW64 though.

  7. There was a reason I had mentioned the kernel extension projects. The group working on OneCore API has had success getting the XP family of OSes to run DirectX 10 games. There's a few other screenshots like that on their site. I would have given OneCore API a spin already, but before I do that I plan on backing up my system just in case. And to be clear, I don't doubt that getting Cyberpunk to run on XP would be a tall order. It's not very high on my list of priorities, but hey; apparently CDPR provided some assistance to Windows 7 users wanting to run the game, even though 7 doesn't have DX12 support. It would be an interesting challenge to see if some combination of these tricks could pull it off.

  8. @Tonny: Do you have a necktie nearby? Anyways, let's talk business. If you learn to tinker with Linux, with all the troubles you'll encounter, that's one step in the door of the IT industry. Probably a good place to be at the moment (moneywise, if that's a concern). So the troubles with Linux will pay off, I think. Give Linux a second thought. New Windows versions won't go in the direction that you like. This comapany would rape you if it brings them money. So to have some options on the table is not the worst thing. Why the old Windows OS? Always a combination with the hardware that is in use. You can get old computers for free, but of course they are underpowered for a current Windows. Why Windows then at all if Linux is the holy grail? Some programs are better on Windows. I prefer the old PhotoImpact against mtPaint and Gimp for example. Dual-boot, get the best from both worlds, and have fun with your computer.

  9. For me it originally started from frustration and hate towards Windows 8. Back in 2014 I was still running Windows XP and all sudden everyone were like "OMG xp is out of support, it will be flooded with viruses, it is totally unusable to anything, upgrade to windoze 8." and I hated it. There was plenty of Microsoft propaganda going on to increase sales of Windoze 8 for those who wanted OS that actually worked properly out of box and was designed for non bacon grease covered monitors. I decided to keep using Windows XP until life decided that I wont and was forced use that piece of s#it called office 365 on my personal system. So I decided take last sensible OS called Windows 7. Few years passed and I was sticking with Windows 7 and eventually was rooting for it. It was very decent operating system and had ACTUAL IMPROVEMENTS in my usage. During that time my XP pc fell out of use since I had no time for fun like before. Then Windoze 10 came out that was free update and MS forced it into my pc against my will (since that hidden option to force update to Windoze 10) and at that point it was personal for me. It messed up my computer totally and I had redo everything. If you need to force OS for some doesn't that mean there is something horribly wrong by design? Also everyone were so love with their Windoze 10 systems and praised Microsoft and were insisting everyone to use it and being hostitle to those who did not want it. I eventually ended up giving it a shot saying that I will never go back to older Windows versions. As vanilla it was horrible to use so I ended up installing classic shell and some other mods and it was more ok but still felt buggy and also someone in Microsoft decided that consumers were still not harmed enough when they added new useless task bars , then they decided to disallow disabling "anti consumer inexperience" aka bloatware downloader on home and pro edition of Windows. That combined with inability to pick what updates to download like on Windows 7 and older plus settings resetting after updates I decided I had enough and rolled back to Windows 7. When I mentioned what though from Windows 10 and what could be improved everyone were so insulted like I would have kicked a dog. It is just a software and not everyone want to use what you like. But everyone were thinking Microsoft was their friend and cared from them actually and that is why any critic was not ok. That point around 2015-2016 I decided to permanently ban Windows 10 on my personal network and stick with Windows 7 and newcomer Windows XP that was back in game I also got rid of most of internet services at that point and wont regret it. Then micracle happened and I was no longer required run any of those software on my personal system. It felt so good to install what I wanted and not install anything forcefully. Then Windows 7 eol date came and felt like I was last man standing behind using older OS. Everyone were thinking older Windows was only good for retrogaming and if you plugged into any network it would get flooded with viruses and hackers would turn into botnet even I knew that was bulls#it. Then I found site called MSFN.org while was looking some XP compatible browser and well here I am. I know this is long answer but you asked why and here is why. At this point in time I am fine for anyone use whatever they want BUT DO NOT TELL ME WHAT OS TO USE. I do not care if you got Windoze 10 or 11 and got picture of Microsoft CEO on it and you worship it, but do not push it down everyone throat. Some are too simple minded to see choice of os or choice of anything in this world. All is forced in this world liked or not and most are fine with it since "someone else knows you benefit better than you" And if someone think I am stupid, diehard or anything else because I said this then it must be that way. I do not have to please anyone.

  10. Looks like the NHS is still very much based on Windows XP. This was spotted at St George's Hospital in London: p.s not my CT Scan, it's the one of an old woman I think

  11. Yep, that's indeed a VM with XP on it, which just shows that there are some programs that don't run on newer version of Windows and clearly don't run on Mac OSX.

  13. I was watching a documentary made in 2019 about Chinese PCB (Printed Circuit Boards) factories and what happens when an engineer submits its order with the circuit to the factory in order to print it and I found something interesting: our beloved OS, Windows XP. It's funny, though, how factories are relying on Windows XP to produce hardware that is shipped all over the world, most of which doesn't support that OS... Windows XP booting in the background:

  14. Image from a recent news article, my guess they use XP as they can't easily upgrade emergency centers, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

  15. It's not Windows XP. If any version of windows, that thick taskbar, and the small, non-green start button would say that it's Windows 7 (Windows Basic theme) But its probably not windows. https://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/2446733/russia-plans-a-switch-to-linux-to-rid-the-country-of-western-pigdogs https://www.defenseone.com/technology/2019/05/russias-microsoft-knockoff-gets-security-upgrade/157310/ Apparently some unnamed russian internet offical has confirmed it to be XP, but it sure doesnt look like it. I’m not convinced.

  18. At a local supermarket: I had also stopped at an office with a beige P!!!/4 tower complete with two CD-ROM and two floppy drives. It wasn't on though or else I would have grabbed two XPs in one day!

  19. The support may be over, but this doesn't mean that people stopped using XP. Today I've been to the dentist and he is using XP. When I asked him why, he said that XP is connected to the sensors of the tools he uses on a daily basis and that he upgraded to Windows 10 months ago as he changed his computer, however the technician he called spent hours trying to make it work with those sensors but he failed, so he reverted to Windows XP. "I've been using these things since 2005" he said, "I'm gonna keep using XP until I'll change the whole thing, its tools and its sensors, which is unlikely to happen anytime soon". Since I wasn't able to take a clear shot, I told him about the Windows XP Spotter group and I quickly told him that we take pictures of XP running in businesses 'cause we are fan of the OS, so he kindly let me take this picture:
