    Newest Adobe Flash and Shockwave, and Java, too!

    Sure. But someone ought to start a dedicated thread and write a cleaned-up how-to procedure for that, don't you agree? I can contribute a regshot "redo.reg" of the minimum registry changes needed (to be attached soon to this very post) and the picture below...

    Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    I bet you do banking using your Win Vista, and your bank(s) have installed safety software by Diebold/Warsaw/GAS Technology on it. If so, such safety software is known to cause instabilities (usually related to win32k) and slow the system. But since they update it constantly, the BSoDs usually go away by themselves after some time. The system slowdown, however, only gets worse on time passing. The best overall solution is to have duplicate Windows in the same machine, let one as is for banking and clean the other from such security software and use it for everything but banking. Yes, it requires a double-boot setup, but nothing is perfect & there's no such thing as a free lunch, of course!

    Audio driver for Realtek HD Audio Hardware?

    Credit, where credit's due, of course. But bear in mind you've studied the driver and the hardware till it made sense for you, and then you brought that to the community, and performed an impressive troubleshooting, together with @Dave-H: the persistence and patience both of you demonstrated is paradigmal of how it ought to be done, and fully deserving of the successful results reached. Of course the driver is important, but the whole process illustrated in this thread actually is just as much important as the driver itself.

    Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    It's OK! It's sorted out, now. Take care to post in the right thread in the future, though.

    +1. Did you remove it before retrying?

    Newest Adobe Flash and Shockwave, and Java, too!

    Shockwave 12.3.5.205 is out, too. It's probably the last iteration of it, since its EoS was April the 4th, 2019.
  9. It's worse now, because now one gets "Server not found" from trafficmanager.net... So what was not hoarded and saved seems to have fallen down the memory hole forever (unless it's been moved to yet another CNAME... then again, it still'd be problematic brcause the numbers in the url are not related to the KB numbers in any obvious ways, IMO). BTW, has anyone perchance preserved this one?

    End of POSReady 2009 patches, what to do?

    Same here. My next machine will be debian x64 / TrueOS (= FreeBSD x64) double boot. And I'm giving it a VirtualBox on each, to run XP SP3 from, so as not to stop using the XP programs I love. But browsing and new programs will be on unix, as soon as both XP and 7 become unusable. I hope to have that new machine up and running before Thanksgivings. For now I'm still deciding about the hardware and looking for good deals. I'm in no hurry, though, 'cause 7 should go at least up to 2021, and XP SP3 on bare iron maybe just as long, if not more.

    Wise words.
  12. If, instead, MS nuked Windows 10 with extreme prejudice and released 7 SP2, 8 SP1 and 8.1 SP1, the world would become a wonderful place.
