  1. Hello Rippie,

    Unfortunately the only software that I tested was "Boot Log XP".

    I don't have Windows 7 or even Vista, so I won't test any other "Boot Logger" too soon… :lol:

    Meanwhile this program only works for Windows XP, but they intend release a version that works in 64-bit, Vista/Seven:

    We are working with new versions of Bootlog XP. Coming soon we will release version for XP-64 and for Widnows Vista/Seven.


    Kind regards. ;)

  2. Last month (April), after one year (it takes ages to HP fixes this problem) HP finally begins to release a hotfix to this problem.

    This was the worst support case that I have ever seen in my life.

    After install all the new updates displayed in the HP page for my printer all my problems and errors with the Word 2007 are gone now. Even using HP as my default printer (no changing was necessary anymore).



    Good luck.

  3. Yes. You are right.

    The "Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1" is the full updated package for v2.0 SP2, v3.0 SP2 and v3.5 SP1.

    You don't need to install " .NET 2.0 SP2" first.

    Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1

    Full Package

    To download the full package, rather than the bootstrapper, click on the link below:

    .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 (Full Package)

    IMPORTANT: After installing the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 package (either the bootstrapper or the full package) you should immediately install the update KB959209 to address a set of known application compatibility issues.

    If you still have problems with these .NET versions you can try also the updates below (post v2.0 SP2, v3.0 SP2 and v3.5 SP1):

    01-) KB961118

    02-) KB946411

    03-) KB961073

    04-) KB962231

    05-) KB959362

    06-) KB962878

    07-) KB958252

    08-) KB957661

    09-) KB967339

    10-) KB960754

    11-) KB961901

    12-) KB968561

    13-) KB968760

    14-) KB958722

    15-) KB969612

    16-) KB956484

    17-) KB968556

    The best thing to do is to wait for a new update rollup package with the above mentioned patchs.


  4. Hello cluberti,

    In the Windows XP SP3, I followed the instructions mentioned in the above post, but I have 2 doubts:

    1-) In the Performance Monitor, after I add the 4 counters, in the "System Monitor Properties", in the "Graph Tab", in the option "Vertical Scale", which should be the value to set (default is 100) since I have 512 MB of RAM?

    2-) Now, in the "Data Tab", in the option "Value Scale" (default is "default"), which should be the correct value to set here based in the configuration above?

    I have tried many values, but I never can see the 4 lines of the 4 counters at the same time in the graph displayed in the "performance monitor".

    Thanks in advanced.


  5. The GDR (General Distribution Release) updates can be found on Windows Update site so as to be available to a wider audience.

    Another key item is GDR's are tested to a greater degree than QFE (Quick Fix Engineering).

    QFE, also known as "hotfixes", are created when a hardware, BIOS or a software issue is identified that needs a fix in a specific and small subset of customer environments.

    These fixes (QFE) have not been tested for the same length of time for regressions or incompatibilities as what a GDR fix typically goes through.

    Another key point is QFE's generally contain all the prior fixes from both GDR and QFE, while the GDR's releases in the same package do not contain all the QFE fixes. Files in the QFE folders are cumulative and contain both "the GDR-class fix" and "all previous hotfixes" that affect the included binaries.

    GDR branch fixes are available from the "Microsoft Download Center", and QFE branch fixes are available directly from "Microsoft Support".

    Remember a hotfix (QFE) is to fix a specific issue quickly, while "Microsoft Update GDRs" are created to improve everyone's experience.



  6. every time I boot it, after it already loaded the desktop and is loading the auto-start programs, it'll breifly flash a black screen, just before starting the network, which is usually the last thing to load.

    I had this problem once, and the culprit was the NVidia Graphics Card Driver.

    I did some "bad configuration" (change 'Coolbits' settings) and the "black screen" blinks every time that I turned on the PC.

    Take a look at your video card driver.

    Good luck,


  7. Here are some working links:

    For an x86-based computer - WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe


    For an x64-based computer - WindowsUpdateAgent30-x64.exe


    For an Itanium-based computer - WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe


    Happy download for all. :thumbup


  8. Hello,

    (Assuming that the cumulative update includes all previous updates, I have removed the individual IE7 updates and opted to list only the latest cumulative update.)

    This update is not included in the Cumulative Pack for IE7:

    You may want to add KB938127 V2 for IE7 to your IE7 updates list, spacesurfer. The original IE7 KB938127 vgx.dll patch could not install under XP SP3 and only installed under XP SP2 but Microsoft issued a revised patch in late August to correct the problem. Get the revised patch here:


    Thanks very much for your time,

  10. Hello,

    Do you have any program to manage ISO files?

    1-) If you have it, you can edit the "WINNT.SIF" file attached to include your "product key";

    2-) Then open the ISO file and replace your old "WINNT.SIF" with the new one;

    3-) Test if this ISO version is working for you.

    On my VM it doesn't ask for the admin password!

    But you probably know that your configuration isn't "Fully unattended". Don't you?

    It asks for HD partitions and it will open the Windows Welcome or Mini-Setup ("Setting Up Internet Connection" and "Create User Accounts") screen after the installation finishes.

    If you prefer to use Nlite again, then make sure to choose the option to "DO NOT Encrypted the Admin Password". And then try with this configuration.




  11. Hi gkhnoisgtht,

    The other reason for the screen appears during setup is a missing "Computer name".

    You should have both: "Computer name" and "AdminPassword" in your "winnt.sif".

    Test with the configuration example showed below:






    And try to use the "quotes" in your WINNT.SIF to see if things work this time.

    If your problem persists, then post you "WINNT.SIF" here, but don't forget to remove your "ProductKey".

    Good luck,


  12. Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool (KB892130) - Can't find it anywhere.

    You can find the "EXE" here:

    HOTFIXES: Win2000 SP4, WinXP SP2, WinXP SP3 and Win2003 SP2, Under New Management!

    And the "CAB" here:

    Windows XP SP3 updates for use with HFSLIP

    Direct link for the Cab File:

    Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool Cab File

    Microsoft Windows Component Installer - I slipstreamed it in using hfslip but it always downloads it again when i check for updates.


    kb942763 and kb898461, they were not integrated in the iso

    And here:

    Problem with HFSLIP 1.7.6 (XP SP3+WMP11) ?

    Good luck,


  13. You can set this here: "WINNT.SIF" in the "UnattendSwitch" option.

    UnattendSwitch?, What is this?

    dear Friends...

    im edited my winnt.sif file for some reasons.. And i have one code line but i donno what it does

    UnattendSwitch = "Yes"

    what is changed if i make it "No"

    wht is its working in unattended Cd...


    Specifies whether Setup skips Windows Welcome or Mini-Setup using the CD Boot method.

    Set this to yes to skip the "Setting Up Internet Connection" and "Create User Accounts" screens.

    In your case you'll have to set it to "No".



  14. Hi,

    If you have free time to read about:

    Windows SteadyState

    I don't use this add-on from Microsoft, but you can take a look at the site and read the documents about this product for Shared Computer Family.


    Sorry, I don't remember where I saw someone talking about this new version released by Microsoft for free to genuine users.

    Good luck,


  15. Hi, :hello:

    but i couln'd find how to clearing the list of program that recently opened when we finished insttaling the windows,


    This tweak will disable completely this "non nense" feature, and you can "Pin to Start Menu" only the items that you really use every time.

    also how to arrange the icons in the Desktop with My Computer First.


    My Computer First = 54

    My Documents First = 48

    This tweak will also change the order that these items appears in the Windows Explorer.

    another problem is, I downloaded the modified sysdm.cpl file but after i put it in to my windows, somehow always renamed in to sysdm.cpl.bak. Anyone can guide me trought? Thanks alot.

    "sysdm.cpl" is a part of the "Windows Protected Files", so every time that you replace this archive by a modified one, the Windows File Protection (WFP) reverts it to the original one.

    Windows File Protection and Windows


    Description of the Windows File Protection feature


    If you want to use modified files you should use nLite to disable the "Windows File Protection" (important Windows feature).

    Good luck,


  16. Hi, :hello:

    For the DirectX End-User Runtimes (March 2008):


    I extract the content of the file “directx_mar2008_redist.exe” to folder called “DIRECTX”.

    Then I do my command line pointing to the “DXSETUP.exe” inside that folder with this switch:

    DIRECTX\DXSETUP.exe /silent

    For IE7 I use this command line:

    Windows Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP


    IE7-WindowsXP-x86-enu.exe /quiet /update-no /nobackup /norestart

    Good luck,


  17. Hello Felix,

    I found the link for that file here:



    KB905474 - Download, Windows Genuine Advantage Notification


    If your language isn't shown, simply let Windows Update install the update. Then search for "KB905474" inside WindowsUpdate.log (in the WINDOWS folder) and post the link in this thread.


    GreenMachine's Complete SP3 SVCPACK.INF, All the updates installed at T-13


    This list of updates and hotfixes are those I have determined to be necessary to show Zero Updates needed, High Priority or Recommended, in Windows Update. One major obstacle is finding the hotfixes. I use a combination of standard hotfix downloads from Microsoft, inspection of WindowsUpdate.log for update URLs, and NirSoft's SmartSniff to detect from where the hotfixes are downloaded.


    By the way, I don't know what is "webcontrol updates".

    In any case, maybe you could look at this site (maintained by "Tomcat76") and try to find something useful information about "webcontrol updates":

    Current Windows XP SP2 updates

    Best regards,


  18. What I did - I downloaded the new WGA (KB892130) through Windows update, I was unable to find a standalone download for it. So I went in the C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\downloads folder and created an SFX archive out of the KB892130 folder (which was named a49d784415582d2f98c84ceb0a75d898) with the command "update\update.exe /q /o /n /z" to be run after extraction and added it to SVCPACK.inf.

    Was the only way I could find to make it work.

    I have been watching this thread with interest and have followed all the instructions on page 1. Currently i am testing with Windows XP Pro SP3 (integrated) and IE (installing from SVCPACK with Hotfixes etc).


    Hope my little bit of input is helpful.




    Here is the original link (official executable file) for "KB892130 - Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool v1.7.69.2":
