    Normal mode booting OK but BSoD in safe mode

    By the way to see the unused security descriptors reported you must use chkdsk with the /v switch (we always talk about NTFS file system of course).

    Normal mode booting OK but BSoD in safe mode

    Minor inconsistencies of a drive happen from time to time (not very often), unused security descriptors are always present even if you run an NTFS system for just a day. Reallocated, pending or uncorrectable sectors are rare but they do still occur and usually are harmless (unless they increase from day to day which is a certain sign of disk failure, I had such a case myself).

    On Windows XP SP2 and SP3 (at least) the "do not load" is in place of "enumerate" which is present in the ntbtlog.txt in previous versions of Windows but here ntbtlog.txt fails to present it correctly. Sorry but I run chkdisk all my life (almost) and all this stuff is absolutely normal (the bad sectors aren't so common but sometimes they exist too).

    The action cant be completed...............

    Then it might just be a bug of Windows 7?

    Strange unexplained problem = reinstalling of the OS (that's what I do, of course you can try System Restore - I do - and if you have a disk backup program and one or more images made before the problem occurred it can be very helpful and time saving).

    Connecting to another PC on My Home Network

    Maybe the hard wired PC is the one that isn't visible?

    Internet Explorer 11 will be available for Windows 8!!

    It's a shame that IE 11 is available for Windows 7 and not for Windows 8, time for this to be changed.
  8. Is it so simple? And what exactly do you copy (the executable file, all the files in its folder, anything more)?

    Windows 2000 SP4 on an i7-4790 possible?

    Running Windows XP on Haswell is a big success as far as I can say, perhaps Windows 2000 is too much (or little) for it.

    Download Accelerator for 9x Systems?

    Free Download Manager 3.9.7 is very good but it is for Windows XP and higher: https://dn3.freedownloadmanager.org/fdminst.exe (in case you or anybody else is interested).

    Windows Update Issue on Fresh Install

    Post EOS Windows XP updates (from the Microsoft Update Catalog): KB4018466 KB4019204 KB4022747 KB4024323 KB4024402 KB4025218
  13. Compatriot, I would suggest a reinstalling... If you have the same problem again then there must be a problem with the installation media or the procedure of installation That is the correct way, after that check if everything works OK and then install everything else step by step checking every time the same thing. In this way you'll find if something causes the problem.
  14. WMP 12 doesn't exist as a standalone installation, at least not from Microsoft.

    Microsoft Edge coming to Windows 7 and 8.1

    Both words Quantum and Spectrum have the same merit: they impress...
