    Should I use XP on my "new" old notebook?

    I know this topic is a little bit old but a couple of weeks ago i had a similar problem with an old compaq notebook from the year 2000. This notebook was a gift from a friend. Machine specs: Intel Celeron-A 400 Mhz 64 MB RAM 1 GB Harddisk On that notebook windows 2000 was installed together with office 2000. Nothing else, even not a virus scanner. On that machine outlook needed round about 5-7 minutes to start. Even if you are patient this is a long time. So i decided to run Windows NT 4.0 Workstation on that machine. Biggest problem was usb because nt 4.0 has no native support and ms refuses support for nt 4.0 see here: Windows NT 4.0 does not support Universal Serial Bus. But a Dell driver Everythingusb.com works for me. OK, it is only usb 1.1 but better than nothing. This laptop is running fine as a typewriter and my outlook 98 starts within 30 seconds.
  3. you have a high chance that your files are NOT being accessible ... even when the certification server is on a different machine and your backup is not damaged in any way. get informed about efs ... then you know why no one is answering your question(s). don't get me wrong efs is secure ... a little bit too secure from my point of view. i suggest truecrypt for your purposes with a container file. regards, genu
  4. Wicked work as usual Kurt_Aust, many thanks from me too. You are a real lifesaver. best regards, genu
  5. My Rig: Quadcore, 8GB RAM 2 out of 20 games won't work. I would recommend XP x64 for use too if you have all drivers.

  7. Check your name resolution. check if your dns/wins/dhcp options settings are correct and everything is working properly. btw: NetBIOS is *NOT* route-able .... only in conjunction with a wins server.
  8. If someone is missing the Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) High Definition Audio driver here ist the solution, MS Support article: http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb%3Ben...mp;x=8&y=12 To obtain the driver visit e.g. ati.amd.com - from drivers and support - catalyst drivers - go to optional software and select from optional software the Microsoft UAA HDMI Audio driver: http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst...ver=xp-optional
  9. There are some 'virtual drive' type plugins for TotalCommander that also depend on it. Newer Alcohol 120% versions and Alcohol 52% (mounting only) uses SPTD too.
  10. Normally this can be done by e.g. notepad runas /user:%COMPUTERNAME%\Administrator "%ComSpec% /C notepad" or with a batch @ECHO OFF runas /user:%COMPUTERNAME%\Administrator Admin.bat you may have a look at this piece iof software : RunasSpc http://www.robotronic.de/runasspcEn.html
  11. The technique isnearly the same, the patches and hotfixes are different of course. In general Unattended Windows helps and there is an article Getting the hotfixes or you may have a look into this thread.
  12. A new version for SPTD for Windows XP/2003/Vista (64 bit) is out. File Name: SPTDinst-v160-x64.exe Version: 1.60 Date File: August 05, 2009 Download: http://www.duplexsecure.com/en/downloads * edit * Just found this interesting post for regtweaks in this forum: reg hacks a thing of the past, use hive files
  13. Kurt_Aust: My last Session as an attachment of this post. As a sidenote : i use seraphs ie8 with no tweaks. Last_Session.ini
  14. Kurt_Aust, you restore the Quicklauch via batchfile but the "show desktop" icon is missing. To restore the quicklauch icon : - copy from an exsting XP installation the file "Show Desktop.scf" as a template to quicklaunch ... - or create a new one. To create a "Show Desktop.scf" make a textfile with this content: [Shell] Command=2 IconFile=explorer.exe,3 [Taskbar] Command=ToggleDesktop ... and safe it as "Show Desktop.scf" and place it in AddOns. Then add it to the RUN1_XP-64.BAT batchfile after : REM fix Quick Launch toolbar (broken by IE8 installer) MkDir "%UserProfile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch" MkDir "%SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\Default User\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch" New: Copy "%Source%AddOns\Show Desktop.scf" "%SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\Default User\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch" Copy "%Source%AddOns\Show Desktop.scf" "%UserProfile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch" Full: REM fix Quick Launch toolbar (broken by IE8 installer) MkDir "%UserProfile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch" MkDir "%SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\Default User\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch" Copy "%Source%AddOns\Show Desktop.scf" "%SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\Default User\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch" Copy "%Source%AddOns\Show Desktop.scf" "%UserProfile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch" ... and you are done.
  15. Kurt_Aust : Please don't misunderstand me. In most cases Movie Maker will work - without the extra codec installation as described by me. But sometimes it dont work. BTW this is platform-independent. I experienced the same error on x86 machines. From my point of view sometimes some codecs are not able to self-register "right". Normally the K-Lite Codec Pack works like a charm, as far as i know this is the only codec installation setup who checks exsisting codecs first. My instruction was meant for problematic cases. mniceguy81: johnhc is right. DirectX 10 or later will be only aviable on Windows Vista or later. This is the MS-Way to enforce you to buy a new OS. If you really need dx10 or later i recommend to test your game on win7. edit reason: directx addenum
