  1. I'm interested in trying WinXP 64 because I usually have a lot of tabs open in my browsers...and am hoping the extra ram would keep the browser from getting bogged down. Since the bogging down (slowing and sometimes locking up) seems to be caused by memory leaks (MyPal68 and Centaury are especially prone to this), all the extra ram should make a difference. Has anyone found this to be true when running WinXP 64?
  2. The Dell support website doesn't list a WinXP ethernet adapter driver for the Optiplex 9020. The adapter built in the computer, and it's an Intel Ethernet Connection 1217-LM. I haven't found anything for it so far, I wonder if there's a workaround...I could try the driver from my Optiplex 9010, or download a Windows 7 driver...but I'm not sure. Does anyone have a solution to this problem?
  3. Astroskipper, thanks for the Testdisk suggestion. I've been trying it on the Ultimate bootcd and Hirens Bootcd PE. I'm going to try to attach 7 screen shots from running the Analysis section, could you give me your opinion as to what I should do next...
  4. I was adding a new partition using Disk Management, and seconds into this action the screen went black. When I rebooted the dual boot WinXP sp3 computer it wouldn't go past an error message indicating it couldn't access the boot disk. Eventually I started the computer using a bootcd and ran Disk Management which showed the missing boot partition was still in place but its 113.68 gb was identified as "free space". When I right clicked on the missing partition, the only option was "new logical disk". I was later able to run the analysis part of a file recovery software and it looked like the files/data were still there. How to recover this partition? I've had a hard time running any partition software from inside thie bootcd's minixp, so I'd appreciate some suggestions. I've discovered that others have had a similar problem when using Disk Management, but haven't found a solution yet and I'm hampered by the very old version of Opera (v12) that comes with the bootcd's minixp...it can't access most websites for security reasons.

  5. Has anyone found a way to use the latest Hirens Bootcd PE with Windows XP. It's listed as having a minimun requirement of Windows 7. Since my problem has to do with my missing boot partition, there's no specific OS involved. But there is a tool developed to copy the ISO content properly in the USB device, Hiren’s BootCD PE – ISO2USB portable tool, and when I try to run it I get an error (external exception CO6DOO7F)...which looks like it might be referring to a missing dll, possibly one that is only found in Win7 and later. I'm trying to run this tool on my other WinXP computer. My boot partition vanished when I tried to use Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) to add a new partition...something I've discovered is a known problem, so I've lost access the my WinXP operating system. I'm using Hirens Bootcd 15 to boot up the computer and try to find a solution, but the included miniXP browser (Opera 12) is so old that most websites won't run in it(security errors) and I'm having trouble getting most software to run in the miniXP environment. Hiren's Bootcd PE has much newer software included, and Firefox 78, so I'd like to try it out. Anyone had any luck with this newer Hirens bootCD PE?
  6. I've never heard of Kafan Minibrowser, I'll give it a try. Ditto 360 Chrome Explorer. Thanks for mentioning them. I have Chrome 43 but can't get most websites to work, always getting error messages like : This site can’t provide a secure connection mybrowseraddon.com uses an unsupported protocol. ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH
  7. I've spoofed the useragent and it shows me as Firefox 77 and Windows 10. That's apparently not enough to fool the Kanopy website. Are there other ways to do this? Sorry for the delay in answering your message, this website didn't notify me.
  8. Kanopy.com is a website that has many classic movies available to stream (ie: Seven Samurai, Rashamon, Citizen Kane, 8 1/2), for free is you have a public library card at qualifying libraries. But it requires an OS newer than WinXP, and every time I try to play a video I get a DRM error, There's a help chart that shows it's only supported on WIndows 8 and above, using Firefox 47 and later. I use Firefox 52.9 ESR. Has anyone found a way to get Kanopy to work with WinXP?
  9. The one time I tried to use Windows 7 (it came install on a used Dell Optiplex I bought), I had such a difficult time with it...eventually had to reformat the hard drive, that I'm loath to try again without knowing exactly what I'm dealing with. Your answer is a bit cryptic, have you actually used one of these system builder packs?
  10. I just came across an OEM System Builder's Pack that someone gave me long ago, it has Win 7 Professional SP1 64bit inside. On the outside it states that for a desktop system it must be preinstalled on the hard drive using the OEM Preinstallation Kit (OPK). Which I don't have. It also says that this preinstallation requirement does not apply to server software. I'm thinking of using this as a dual boot on my WinXP sp3 computer. Does anyone know what this OEM Preinstallation kit is and if it's really necessary for installation?
  11. It was posted purely by accident. I was looking for the original post and couldn't find it so I assumed it had been swallowed by the internet ogre and posted again.
  12. Is anyone using Maxify printers with WinXP? If you are, which models will work and where did you get the basic drivers?
  13. Here's what's happened...I downloaded heinoganda's fix packages, but during the installation it turned out that I had to have a WinXP installation disk. Which I didn't have...so with every request for a missing file I searched through my computer and found most (but not all) of the requested files, but with no idea which versions these files were from. The end result was that IE6 was installed (but only works on a few websites), and when I tried to run OE6 I'd get an error message that msoe.dll was missing. The missing file is in the C:\Program Files/Outlook Express folder. Is there another place it should be? I couldn't find anyway to uninstall heinoganda's fix, so I tried to run my ie6setup.exe which failed with the usual message about a newer version already installed. Today I went back to the suggestion from antiproton and pulled out the MAILNEWS.CAB folder, extracted all the files and ran setup50.exe . Nothing visible happened. Then, just for the heck of it, I ran msimn.exe and the Outlook Express 6 configuration window opened up. I proceeded through the configuration and then downloaded some email. Next I closed Outlook Express and tried to start it via Internet Explorer 6. That failed with the error message that OE couldn't be started because msoe.dll couldn't be loaded. So I went back to the extracted msimn.exe (still in it's extraction folder) and OE6 started up. But now I notice that the emails I downloaded are only showing the From, Subject headlines, and nothing in the message area. Perhaps there's a setting that I need to correct for the message content to show. So that's the current state of affairs...OE6 is starting up but not working properly. I'd like to be able to uninstall heinoganda's IE6 and see if I can get the extracted Outlook Express setup50.exe file to work to try to make a proper installation from the extracted Outlook Express cab files.
  14. Hi...I'd like to see the "medicine" you have created that will allow me to uninstall ie8 completely.  My email is jbclem1@charter.net.

    Thanks...

    John

     

     

  15. I reinstalled IE8. It didn't show up in Add/Remove Programs, so I went to the Windows/IE8 folder and ran spuninst.exe. The uninstall program ran, I restarted the computer and tried to install IE6 again. The problem is still there, so I can't install IE6.
