  1. Meanwhile, you might even consider acquiring some jute carpets (while deleting them one by one by hand) ...
  2. I'm sorry I'm unable to help, since I've never ever used any version of Outlook at all: I went from Pine on IRIX to remote Web-Mail directly. However @Mcinwwl's advice seems sond and wise to me, so I second it gladly. OTOH, I can see a notebook might be perhaps less dangerous than a huge enamel-on-cast iron bath tub, although perhaps it may be just as lethal...
  3. /overwriteoem !!! Yes, of course! I half-remembered you had found a way to do it without needing to do it by hand, but I wasn't able to remember what it was. Sure. Great! I'm happy you you have it fixed now, and in a faster andd less error-prone way than by hand.
  4. "Windows Starting" wrong language

    This is your issue: Change it to sv-SE, then remove en-US, using the procedure I gave you links to, Good luck!
  5. Well... it's consistent, at least! You can, of course, replace them by hand, but you must remember that you'd need to grab and rename ntkrnlmp.exe to ntoskrnl.exe and ntkrpamp.exe to ntkrnlpa.exe, because yours is a multiprocessor/multinucleus machine, and use the renamed files for the replacing, or the system will refuse to boot, as you do know. I know you've danced to that tune already once, so this is no news to you, but reminding of the pitfalls in critical tasks is never too much, right?
  6. Checck whether C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntkrnlpa.exe, C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntoskrnl.exe and C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\ntfs.sys are v. 5.1.2600.7459. If so, hide the offer to update KB4101864 and forget about it. My 2¢ only, of course!
  7. "Windows Starting" wrong language

    Try these (not exactly what you asked, but should do it, too): http://www.nextofwindows.com/how-to-change-the-default-language-for-windows-7-logon-screen/ https://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/39104-completely-change-language-ultimate-installation.html https://web.archive.org/web/20130603140952/http://windows7forums.com/tweaks-guides-howto/53992-how-remove-language-button-your-logon-screen.html
  8. And you're very welcome to stay, too! All careful users, who test things, report bugs and use the software intensively are a fundamental asset to keep New Moon alive and kicking! And we both know that the single most important tool to keep any one OS usable in a day-to-day basis is a good, up-to-date browser... So New Moon is the main life-line for both XP and Vista. Long live @roytam1!
  9. I, for one, think any developer who wants to lick MS's bee hind is free to do so, but there is too much hübris in telling anyone to move on to be countenanced in silence, and this is what makes such enjoinments both nasty and ridiculous: die-hards, like me, don't move on because we want to stay put... and this is part of freedom, that thing which everybody and her cousin seem to swear by but, at the end of the day, nobody tolerates (at least when it's used to do what they don't want others to do). MS will pass, Windows 10 shall rot, but freedom is forever!
  10. That is *very* strange. Make sure you had actually installed @heinoganda's modified KB4074852! The symptoms you describe are those due to the original MS update and should *not* appear when @heinoganda's modified KB4074852 is used instead. In a nutshell: so far, so good. But I'd wait some more to be positive it's flawless, just to keep on the safe side.
  11. Cooler than dry ice.
  12. Theme CSS wrong for current page number

    Really? It's been like this for some time already, see <this thread>.
  13. Microsoft Living Up to their Name

    I use MS support (and AVG, while I was a registered user) to complain only: when I've done enough to feel frustrated enough I call them and complain, complain more and then complain even more... and if they break the call I call again and complain even more... and when they say "well... but, sir, you must see that..." I tell them the beauty of being a registered user is that I paid for the right to complain to exhaustion, at the very least, since they have no clue about solving my issue (whatever it may be) anyway. Then I go to the movies or watch some TV, get some sleep, and then get back to the issue with a lighter spirit and usually get to solve it myself, usually with the help of friends from forums and related places. :-)
  14. I do hope both do both. We're all old timers here, and things said in a bout of irritation (even if better left unsaid) should not drift us apart. There's just a handful of us left. and we should stick together, as best as we can. Let's please forgive and forget. My unasked for 2¢, for all it may be worth.
  15. Intel USB 3.0 xHCI XP driver

    AFAICS, ramateja.g has stopped working on that driver at the end of GSoC 2017 and did not yet resume it. The results are at <this link>, but are far from usable yet, if I'm not mistaken.
