  2. I'm gonna leave this guide for defusing the timebomb here. http://cache.tehsausage.com/flash/defuse.txt Instead of changing the year to 2040, it replaces the value with a NaN - "not a number". Adobe's code will check if the current time in milliseconds is above NaN, which always returns false, so it basically means infinity. I did it before january 13th, everything Flash-related works fine. Now I wonder if it's possible to set the system date to before January 13th, install the latest flash, then follow the guide and return the system date to how it was. Also apparently the same

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. you can't easily to downgrade profile from NM28 to NM27, this requires places.sqlite schema change this will require porting large chunk of code from NM28 to SP52, since NM28 is forked from FX24 UI, porting may cause UI breaking heavily, and I don't have enough time for porting and testing. only build config is changed, so something requires SSE2 will not work properly (for example, wasm)

  7. Definitely download, install and configure Classic Shell. This will give you a good experience of Windows Explorer on 7 that has strong similarities to WinXP. I'm on Windows 7 myself but only because Classic Shell makes Explorer and the Start Menu tolerable for me - if Classic Shell wasn't available then I would think I'd just go over to Linux Mint. In point of comparison I have to say that I do find Win7 to be a pretty good system and am overall well pleased with it.

  10. Classic Shell, now Open Shell along with 7+ Taskbar Tweaker made Windows 7 a good choice and are even more important with Windows 10. Without these third party programs that restore useful functions I'd probably still be on XP most of the time. I'm waiting for someone to bring back the classic theme for Windows 10, Microsoft screwed it up so bad removing that option it has turned the OS into a joke.

  11. Never really moved on, I just triple boot with XP, Win 7 and Win 10. On an older computer I've still got W2k. Each OS has it uses, especially XP with programs that can't be installed on the newer ones. Of the bunch Win 10 barely gets used, I consider that OS a joke but will probably be needed in the future.

  12. The WidevineCDM (v1.4.9.1088) inside official Basilisk as well as in Serpent 52.9.0 has been broken since August 14th 2019 (!), because evil Google , the current owners, have de-authorised that deprecated version from receiving decryption licenses (i.e. keys) from sanctioned WV lic-servers... WidevineCDM has always depended (in Firefox-type browsers) on system provided patented decoders (IOW, WMF), thus it used to require at least Vista SP2 with Platform Update Supplement (PUS); when one visits a WV test page with latest Serpent 52 in Vista+, e.g. https://bitmovin.com/demos/drm , you sad

Various non-official Chinese sites are already redistributing (modified?) standalone installers and re-packaged versions of Chinese Adobe Flash Player v34.0.0.92 (official site https://www.flash.cn/english only offers stub installers ) ... I won't post any links here, of course , but - depending on your searching skills - you might be able to stumble upon them ...

  17. 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

  18. One thing you can try is get StartIsBack++ since it can skin the taskbar independently of its Start menu and the rest of Windows. Once you create and apply a Uxstyles made for taskbar in StartIsBack++, it should work as long as SIB++ works. Even if the Windows Uxstyles breaks.

I don't know what (don't read) google writes to the ordinary users , but according to their own documentation it does what it says, besides you may wanna read more carefully what I write , you have mixed up the two different flags : " --process-per-site - Enable the "Process Per Site" process model for all domains.

The answer isn't hiding. short version: It feels like it's no longer being supported. It hasn't been updated for the last two major windows updates. It no longer works unless you running a year old (or more) version of win 10.

  26. Well, if you use these parameters, on the next normal check you may get those "cleanup" messages. And since you run the check on the system drive, it won't be able to do it right away and will ask you to schedule the check for the next boot... For now, run chkntfs /D , then chkdsk c: /f /x , then reboot. After this avoid running chkdsk manually for a while unless you have a real reason to do so. Use the PC normally and see if these cleanups appear again.

  27. 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.

  28. 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

  32. I use Open-Shell with a taskbar texture found in the last post of this topic on Classic Shell forum. In the settings on the Taskbar tab, besides setting Taskbar texture and pointing it to downloaded image, Vertical stretching must be set to Tile, otherwise, the border is missing. Obviously, Customize taskbar must be enabled for settings here to work and you'll probably want to tweak Taskbar look and Taskbar opacity as well.

  34. Not AV, but I suggest you take a look at Malwarebytes Free 3.5.1 which I use on my Vista system (I use it instead on AV). You can automate scans via Task Scheduler. Also, I used to use Avast Free AV (it still receives definition updates on Vista and XP), but it suddenly became glitchy at a point of time. Don't know whether it's just my issue though. One more suggestion: take a look at Clamwin AV, a wonderful, open-source AV that supports Windows 95 (yes 95!) through 10.

  35. Yes, from experience, version X of the uninstaller will uninstall ALL (NPAPI, PPAPI, AX) Flash versions <=X This one has a digital signature (SHA-2 only) of Dec 22nd 2020 ; to be honest, I'm quite reluctant to try it out; Adobe are known to be very insidious , so I fear they may have artificially blocked any Flash version from being installed after this tool has been run... But I'm just being paranoid, I suppose... As for version 34, I think in China (and probably in Enterprise distributions) Flash hasn't died with version 32.0.0.465...

I got through the install (using a USB 2.0 flash drive and a USB 2.0 port) somehow without BSOD and later installed GPU, audio, wifi etc. Drivers through driver booster (I know it caused issues for you but not for me in this case). I was surprised at how a Windows 10 Intel HD graphics 505 driver successfully installed on Windows 8.1!! Also, that laptop has only 32GB of internal storage, so no update

  43. Yes , you're right . I just thought it was necesary to tag a supervisor so he could intervene and keep this topic clean , also add a function where one could be able to block members . Besides , I've already asked a user (not pointing fingers at anyone) to stop disturbing win32 and me with longish texts containing the same questions over again . Please tell , is there a "block user" function over here ? I can see only "ignore" , but that isn't helping.

  44. Hi , I'd like to add . All versions starting from Opera 69 do NOT remember extensions' settings . They revert all settings to default if the browser is re-launched. Chromium is even worse . It simply turns them off (tested on chrome 86). I mean the extensions without locale settings , which I managed to install.
