  1. hello all, I am looking to replace my computer as it unfortunately doesn't what I need any more. I work from home and use it to run a lot of vmware guests so can lab up systems and also use it for general pc usage. I am wondering what i would get for the old system, though not sure if i am allowed to ask so apologies if i am breaking a rule. So, these are the components & case i am looking to sell as a single lump and thoughts on what i should/could ask for are appreciated. CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40GHz - Kentsfield 65nm Technology RAM: 8GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 400MHz (6-6-6-18) Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer INC. P5E-VM HDMI (LGA775) Graphics: 512MB NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT (ASUStek Computer Inc) Optical Drives: PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-218L ATA Device Audio: Realtek High Definition Audio Case: Antec P182 PSU: 550w Asus i think, not sure how to tell without taking out! Thank you.
  2. you need to use calcs to set/change permissions via the command line
  3. i use something akin to this: @ECHO off TITLE Applying Windows Post Service Pack 2 Updates IF EXIST D:\CD.txt set CDROM=D: IF EXIST E:\CD.txt set CDROM=E: IF EXIST F:\CD.txt set CDROM=F: IF EXIST G:\CD.txt set CDROM=G: IF EXIST H:\CD.txt set CDROM=H: IF EXIST I:\CD.txt set CDROM=I: IF EXIST J:\CD.txt set CDROM=J: GOTO START @author Neil Wooloff @version date :START SET /A NUMOFUPDATES=0 ECHO.

  4. i use this in the winnt.sif file: [FavoritesEx] Title1 = Hotmail.url URL1 = https://www.hotmail.com/ Title2 = Facebook.url URL2 = https://www.facebook.com/ Title3 = BarclaysBank.url URL3 = https://ibank.barclays.co.uk/
  5. in winnt.sif set the driversigning to ignore it then doesn't care if your using unsigned or not:: [unattended] DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore NonDriverSigningPolicy=Ignore as noted here: http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/19/#unattended
  6. i run .3.5 & .4 called from runonce at the end and no issue using this inside my app_install.cmd file START /WAIT %CDROM%\Apps\dotNET\dotnetfx35_x86.exe /quiet /norestart START /WAIT %CDROM%\Apps\misc\sleep.exe /t:30 /s:1 START /WAIT %CDROM%\Apps\dotNET\dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64 /quiet /norestart START /WAIT %CDROM%\Apps\misc\sleep.exe /t:30 /s:1
  7. got it working using this: START /WAIT %CDROM%\apps\AVG\AVGFreeEdition_v10.0.1388.exe /AppMode=Setup /UILevel=silent /InstallToolbar=0 /DontRestart /InstallSidebar=0 /ChangeBrowserSearchProvider=0 /ParticipateProductImprovement=0 /SelectedLanguage=1033 START /WAIT %windir%\system32\pskill.exe -t avgui.exe seems not possible to start hidden or minimized so i just kill it
  8. Hello nucleus, Did you ever find a fix for this as i am now using AVG and find this part rather annoying. am thinking of using pskill.exe to kill once installed as will run on next login. [edit] am currently using these switches and all is ok with install itself http://forums.avg.com/ru-en/avg-free-forum?sec=thread&act=show&id=110295 [/edit] Thanks
  9. cheers spoiled. yep, already using the ork to generate the .mst file i looked through many old threads, and found ref to deleting the error reporting keys. i also don't slipstream in the ServicePacks, and weirdly these produce a confirmation box at the end even though the command is correct. will test some more and see what happens.
  10. you need to add a command to the runoncex.cmd window so it will get to the end of list 1 in window and the show a 2nd window with the remaining applications can't find it on mine, sorry.
  11. Hello All, Have done a search and couldn't find what i was after. I recall once that to get Office 2003 installed at runonceex.cmd you needed to add some reg keys to the tweak.reg files so you wouldn't get an error. I have lost these and can't find them on here. Does anybody have these please? Thanks.
  12. thanks fell, exactly what i needed
  13. Hello, In xp with notify before download, in the box listing updates available you could select those not to appear again. In W7 i am unable to see how to do this? is it possible. I ask as want to hide the gazillion MUI list and also the new browser ballot one; (happy with firefox x64 thanks)
  14. Hello All, Apologies if no use, and hope you don't mind me using yours as a basis 64ninjas. The attached file, is based on a search using the MS Security Bulletin Search, using the below criteria: Website url: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/current.aspx Product/Technology: windows xp professional x64 Service Pack: sp2 update severity: all checked Gives a total of 196 updates in total. This includes all those that have been superseded and also useful extras like IE7 & IE8 & .net .... [edit] attached file only worked in IE not Firefox x64. doh!

  15. maxXPsoft, First I want to say thanks for spending time making and tweaking this app. On 3rd go it working all fine. Only thing I don't understand is adding off applications using Add Apps button. I have the folder Apps at the root and the app sees this, but no idea what I'm supposed to see or do. it opens the window with tick boxes, but no idea what i should expect to see. you have some simple steps an id*** can follow please. oioldman
  16. you can also get direct from Microsoft yourself: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/current.aspx

    ok, so still using RC1 whilst i learn to do unattended so bear withme please. whenever i modify my own theme by adding a new pic, it always creates it as an unsaved theme. why does it not update the active theme? anybody else noticed this?
  18. still being asked to login everytime i close & open browser.
  19. I have no need for this and did not select to be used during install, yet the silly icon is still there. wastes screen space and should;t be there if asked not to be used. This is how to remove: http://www.milka.dk/main/2009/04/25/Window...InExplorer.aspx basically, stop the x2 services: # HomeGroup Listener # HomeGroup Provider

    x64 & WMP

    but x64 os isn't exactly new to the market in any form, especially xp form. yes it did change in vista, and it is better i think - easier to use more than anything also agree that w7 will probably be last x86 os, which is no bad thing as hardware has been pushing forwards much more

    x64 & WMP

    which was developed and released by M$ if i'm not mistaken, and as such why the laziness to make an x64 activex control. i think it is a case of; manufacturers: nobody uses x64 so why make suitable apps end users: we don't use x64 because you don't make suitable apps chicken and egg situation

    x64 & WMP

    i do use the windows update built in to w7 x64 but also use xp x64 and here ie does not allow windows update to be used

    x64 & WMP

    sounds fair gents, but still... was going to mention ie as part of it, but thought no because i wouldn't stop and why is it so hard to make windows update work with x64 ie?

    x64 & WMP

    Why do M$ think that under the x64 version you would want to use the x86 version by default? as this is the one they put on the start menu. Seems pretty stupid to me, but they do include an x64 as well. That is even more stupid. Include both an x86 & x64 version of the same application on x64........ some stupid logic or what sorry, just a rant. changed shortcut to point to x64 one and deleted the default taskbar icon for it, again another stupid concept.
