  1. Oh WOW! I am so sorry to hear that. I wondered why we haven't seen that many posts from him in quite a while. Den was also very kind and helpful to me. He and Trip have been the two mods that I have personally interacted with the most over the years.. Thank you very much for sharing this sad news, Dave. May he rest in peace. EDIT: Looking back over my old records I was reminded that Den and I joined MSFN within a few weeks of each other, which means nothing, really, but was just something we had in common.
  2. Go here - http://www.opendrivers.com/download/driver-83547.html The "Official Server 1" link didn't work for me, but go down to the bottom of the page and find the "Backup Server" link. That worked for me. Cheers and Regards
  3. Yep, your last example sounds like my situation. (I had the shots + booster, plus flu vaccine, etc Fortunately my wife has avoided getting it, so far.) I started the first mild symptoms 12/27, got worse and had my test 12/29, I continued to get worse with a peak around 12/31-1/1. My main complaints are congestion, cough, severe body ache, mild fever. ::sigh:: I'll live.
  4. Admittedly, I'm just as confused as you are jaclaz. (And the OP might be as well.) At first I was going to answer the OP with And I was going to provide a link showing how to install, or remove, language packs for Windows 10. Then I thought about it and seemed to remember that Home didn't allow language packs to be installed? And I thought I read somewhere that in order to install language packs that you had to upgrade Home to Pro first? This - https://www.groovypost.com/howto/install-change-languages-windows-10/ - almost says that, but it makes a distinction between Home and Home Single Language. Then I ran across the link I referenced above - https://windowsreport.com/download-install-windows-10-home-single-language/ - and figured that maybe I was wrong? Why would they reference a Single Language version if that was the only way that Home comes? As to its "advantages": I'd be interested to hear from the OP what indeed were his motivations for wanting the "Single Language" version. As to what any of this means to the conversion instructions, I have no idea and frankly don't care, because: 1) I have no interest in any Home version of any MS OS 2) I have no interest in any version of Windows 10 Cheers and Regards NOTE: Please excuse my current attitude. My son came down with COVID last week (mostly asymptomatic and he's doing fine and recovering well) and I just found out an hour ago that I have COVID as well - not so asymptomatic - so I really feel like crap. Oh well, it will get better.
  5. OK, after looking, I've seen that there is a difference between Home Single Language and "regular" Home. I guess the extra simplicity appeals to you? I haven't found any tutorial on how to convert Pro to HSL, but here is an article that explains where you can get a copy to download and install. https://windowsreport.com/download-install-windows-10-home-single-language/ You "might" be able to install and have your existing data survive, but to be on the safe side I would suggest copying your user data someplace safe and copying it back after it is installed. Good luck! Cheers and Regards
  6. Maybe a dumb question Dave, but any chance the "space" in "E:\Dump Folder" is involved somehow? You might want to try a different folder on E:, one without a space, just for a test. Cheers and Regards
  7. ESENT has been around since Windows 2000 through Windows 11. Maybe this will help explain ESENT, and convince you that it is both not "junk" and also useful. From https://www.minitool.com/news/esent.html: What Is ESENT? --------------- What is ESENT? ESENT is an embeddable transactional database engine. It was first provided with Microsoft Windows 2000 and has been available to developers since then. You can use ESENT for applications that require reliable, high-performance, and low-overhead structured or semi-structured data storage. The ESENT engine can meet a variety of data requirements, from simple data like hash tables to data that cannot be stored in memory to more complex data (such as applications with tables, columns, and indexes). Now, many teams at Microsoft currently rely on ESENT for data storage, such as Active Directory, Windows Desktop Search, Windows Mail, Live Mesh, and Windows Update. Besides, Microsoft Exchange uses a slightly modified version of the ESENT code to store all its mailbox data.
  8. Maybe I'm missing something, but following the link and reading the article is great, but I found nothing to download. Cheers and Regards [Note: @DixelI sent you a PM]
  9. I was going to agree with @UCyborg I'm not sure how XP does it, but for my Win 7 system, I'll have one instance of explorer.exe for the desktop, then another for each instance of Windows Explorer I open. But since it hasn't happened again, then maybe it was just a glitch, so never mind. Cheers and Regards

    System_Info

    I don't know if you've seen this little app before, but if it's functionality is not already in System_Info somewhere, it might be worthwhile either including it, or it's functionality in a later release. The app hasn't been updated in three years, so might be considered quasi-abandoned? It's also just an HTA, so it's straightforward to update or modify if needed. The app is atmzzrSystemCheck - http://automizzer.webatu.com/atmzzrsystemcheck-en.html - It's function is to check the version of the various runtimes on your system, and provide links to the latest official versions available to download, if you are not up to date.
  11. I have NOT checked these, but I found links here - https://www.apk20.com/apk/5239/v/135362/ and here - https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/hiya/mr-number-block-calls-spam/mr-number-block-calls-spam-4-0-3-release/, and they do seem to be identical, so...
  12. Unfortunately, https://hiyahelp.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360019692533-What-is-Mr-Number-Premium-for-Android- though at the google app store it still looks like it's free??? I'm confused.
  13. MediaFire not updated yet, but Mega is. Cheers and Regards EDIT: MediaFire works now.
  14. I agree with this part of your statement, but the problem you will probably run into is the newest games will refuse to run on Win 7, whether they truly need the latest driver which doesn't install, or if the game company can't or won't support Win 7 any more. Older games, using older drivers, should still be able to run on Win 7 just fine. Not being a gamer, neither of these cases bother me, and I fully expect to be able to run Win 7 for many more years of "normal" usage. As to the purpose of this thread, it will be useful to others if you note which versions of which games or apps are the last ones to run on Win 7. If possible, try to determine if it is the installer which, possibly artificially, will no longer function on Win 7, or if it is the game or app itself. Cheers and Regards
  15. @wimb, would you please point me to a link where it explains in detail what exactly that Win_Reduce_Trusted does? In an early post you state that it is "suitable to Reduce Windows 7/8/10 x64", and I'm interested it in using it for install applications other than VHD installations, primarily for Windows 7 and 8. If it wouldn't be directly applicable for such use, I could at least use it as an example to model from. TIA. Cheers and Regards
  16. Sorry @cannie, but when I just tried that link I got this as a response via email: Have you actually downloaded DisplaySet? If you have it, can you put it up somewhere like MediaFire? Cheers and Regards
  17. Yes, v1.1 of DisplaySet was first listed for download at PCMag on August 1, 2001. You can read the write up here - https://web.archive.org/web/20020602105227/http://www.pcmag.com/article/0,,s=1478&a=7388,00.asp, and the download page was here - https://web.archive.org/web/20020409051959/http://www.pcmag.com/article/0,2997,s=1478&a=7361,00.asp, but it doesn't work now. I couldn't find it available on the web, but someone else's Google-Fu is probably better than mine. Between 2001 and 2014 DisplaySet has been mentioned here at MSFN by several others including @jaclaz, @xpclient, and @cannie, so hopefully one of them might still have access to the file. Cheers and Regards
  18. According to https://www.pcworld.com/article/3623830/only-windows-11-pro-will-let-you-install-windows-11-with-a-local-account.html, I think that is only true for the "home" version, and not for "Pro." and even then, Cheers and Regards
  19. While I respect your frustration, I interpret your references differently, As I read the newspaper, I thought it meant that the "previously planned" part referred to them previously planning to allow tourists in as of August 1, but new data about the severity of continued infections has caused them to reconsider. Your interpretation could be a case of a misplaced coma in the newspaper text. As to the rest of your post, even Twitter itself has marked that tweet as misleading, so... Regarding the software/Green Pass mentioned in the OP, my state is one that has not planned such a thing and I doubt they will unless forced to. While I am vaccinated, I have never been asked to show such proof. I think such passes or software can be a good thing, but because of the worldwide nature of the problem, its use and enforcement needs to be consistent. While I respect states rights, the problem is too wide spread and people from various states and countries interact too frequently. It just doesn't make sense to use anything but a consistent unified approach. What approach is that? I have no idea what it is nor how we can get past the political nature of how this has evolved. All governments seem to be quick to blame anyone else for the problems and take credit for any small improvements. The public has become confused and distrustful. Very disheartening. With the current variants of the virus, and the likelihood of future variants, I can see this situation becoming like the flu vaccine, and maybe even combined with it? Each year a new one will come out, with varying degrees of effectiveness each year. I think that the virus and the flu are different than polio or other diseases. Those other diseases can be treated by a single shot that can immunize an entire population with an extremely high effectiveness. The virus and the flu, based on what I have seen, seem to have too many variants, morph too quickly, and affect folks too differently with their different physiology, ages, and medical histories. We're always going to be chasing a cure like playing whack-a-mole. But I hope I am wrong and an effective vaccine can be found. Cheers and Regards
  20. Site search does not work for me either. But then even when it did work, just using Google to search with a search string something like "site:msfn.org 'search string' " often worked better.
  21. @kasfruit, I respectfully disagree. The question was ''Can my 2006 Laptop use Samsung 860 EVO 500GB SSD?'' NOT ''Can my 2006 Laptop use Samsung Magician?'' To my knowledge, Magician is NOT required in order to use the 860 EVO SSD. Magician might offer some extra optimizations, but they are not required. Please explain, with appropriate references to Samsung documentation, if I am mistaken. While I have used the Samsung 850, 860, and 870 SSDs, it has always been with Win 7. I have not used any SSD with XP, so I could be wrong, but I don't think so. Cheers and Regards
  22. That was the identifier it gave me as well. Very Strange. (Win7x64, SRWare Iron [Chrome variant] as browser) Cheers and Regards
  23. And a 7th possibility could be a power supply that is just beginning to fail. An iffy power supply could cause the same kinds of flaky performance and random issues as bad RAM contacts or disk cable contacts. Cheers and Regards
