  1. Welcome to MSFN, @daniel_k! It's great to have you around! I guess he can all right: by changing the boot.ini line from (say): multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=AlwaysOff /fastdetect /pae to (say): multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Pro HK Change" /noexecute=AlwaysOff /fastdetect /pae /KERNEL=NTKRNLPA.EXE /HAL=HALAACPI.DLL then rebooting. I think this change sticks, so it should be possible to return to (say): multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=AlwaysOff /fastdetect /pae for the next reboot and the hal and kernel won't change back, IINM. It's been a long time since I last used that, however, so YMMV. But it may be of help. Of course, anyone who follow this advice, does so on his own, and knowing fully well that the standard disclaimer applies: I guarantee nothing whatsoever about it, nor about the use one makes of it. So, by deciding to apply it you fully accept that anything you do is of YOUR SOLE RESPONSIBILITY... Hence, if after performing this mod your pc morphs into a purple mushroom and explodes, causing a 10-day worldwide blackout in the process, you know you can't blame me for it! You have been warned.

    Latest Version of Software Running on XP

    Strange! It runs OK on Basilisk/UXP (Roytam1's on XP SP3) for me on three different installations (in different machines). Are you sure you've activated the Silverlight Plugin? Does your Basilisk/UXP installations even list the Plugin?

    Windows assigning same name to USB's when connected

    I'm not quite sure about where exactly your issue lies, but I bet USBOblivion can solve it. Do give it a try.

    Java Version 8 Update 201 is out. Is there a 8u202, too?

  7. Something isn't right with this build. It's crashing randomly on opening a new tab. Nothing of the sort happens with v. 20181208, so it must be due to some change done recently. I imagined there'd be other reports about it, but since there are none, here's mine. Bug-hunting is on!
  8. Behaviour Shield is a purely heuristic module, isn't it? If so, the best one can do is to turn it off / remove it forever. AVG, at least (and I've used it for many years, always was overly paranoid in its heuristics)... in fact, giving it a name which initials are BS is very appropriate. To believe in heuristics, one need at least 20 different opinions, since the engines suck so much. Leave it to Virus Total on-demand. Do not use it as an always-on scanner, because that's just a PITA, nothing more. My 2¢ only, of course! Feel free to ignore. But I'd feel very dishonest with y'all, hadn't I told y'all what my experience with antivirus heuristics is.

    MSE For Vista Now Shows XP Nag Screens

    Look: between 7 and 10 MS should have about 80% of the total usage share. Leaving something under 50% of that total on no antivirus, considering they'd be actively endangering the remaining 10 machines, just to try and force a couple more percent to move over to 10 is suicidal, and MS fully knows that. Of course they are bound to announce a grace period once again. They may be raving mad, but not complete fools.

    Update Win 7, or Not ?

    POSReady 7's updates are directly compatible with plain 7.

    MSE For Vista Now Shows XP Nag Screens

    Since no "POSReady-type" spoof is needed, for all purposes, the OS remains 7 (Ultimate x86 or x64 in my machines, BTW). So the question is will MS stop producing signature updates in 2020 (when, say, 7 still shall have about 40% usage share)? I doubt it. It'd be the equivalent of shooting a bazooka on their own foot. They may be raving mad, but not that mad, IMO. YMMV.
