  1. chrome://net-export/ it is not working on my 360 v.11.0.2251 (error loading page). I want to check if the Chinese telemetry has returned after 360 made me an autoreset after a possible shutdown failure.
  2. I have two problem with 360 Extreme Explorer when there are more than 30 tabs open. 360 works fine but when I close it and reopen it it takes more than 25 min. in loading the tabs. This leaves the computer completely unusable during this time (nothing responds). This usually happens to me on a computer with only 2 GiB RAM. Sometimes this process breaks down and 360 Extreme Explorer is reset to initial settings. At this moment all the tabs and all the installed extensions have disappeared. I cannot retrieve the tabs by pressing control + shift + T I had installed extensions that
  3. it was already disabled. I have found another solution, at least it has worked on the first computer with Intel driver by @blackwingcat run gfxui.exe (driver config) On 3D Custom Settings check the box. On Vertex change the option "Depend on Application" by the option "Enabled software". Press apply. Now K-Meleon & New Moon for Windows 2000 work perfectly. Thanks in any case.
  4. With this version I can run TRIM on SSD Kingston A400 with Windows XP. Thank very much. I have also seen the overprovision option. It's the first time I've read about this. On my SSD drive this program does not give the option to reserve a space for overprovision. What does this mean and how does it affect me? My drive capacity is 240 Gb. It is divided into 4 MBR partitions and these only have a few GiB of free space. Edit: I think it doesn't give me the option because I already have 4 primary partitions created and it cannot create a new one for over-provisioning.
  5. I've been looking at the matter thoroughly and from what it seems the latest Paragon GPT Loader driver that exists officially is and contains many bugs. Yes, there is Paragon GPT Loader but it is just a program that contains the driver (long live the confusion, long live the marketing). There is also Paragon HFS for Win to read drives with MAC format and it also contains the GPT driver In addition to the official version there is a fork that corrects the bugs. The current fork version is On their website they do not give the full version 8.0.1.
  6. Finally it has worked so much v. 5.2.3790.3959 (w2003 SP2) as v. 5.2.3790.1830 (w2003 SP1) Both files have = number of bytes, only version number changes. The files to download that I have put in the previous comment are valid for all languages (at least they work with XP English & XP Spanish). You copy original files to another folder before replacing them The issues that may appear before they work are: -By pasting disk.sys & partmgr.sys in \ WINDOWS \ system32 \ dllcache \ WINDOWS \ system32 \ drivers the original versions of Windows XP are fully or partially restored.
  7. The problem has been replicated on another computer that previously worked well @roytam1 This time it is a Pentium IV. I used to have an ATi AGP card. K-Meleon and New Moon worked fine on Windows 2000. Now the ATi card has failed. I have put a NIVIDIA card. Now K-Meleon and New Moon do not show the graphics or the interface and neither in the web browsing (only parts in black). Except if I disable 3D in Windows 2000 video troubleshooting menu.
  8. Indeed, Windows restored the files. So I have overwritten: \ WINDOWS \ system32 \ dllcache \ disk.sys \ WINDOWS \ system32 \ drivers \ disk.sys \ WINDOWS \ system32 \ dllcache \ partmgr.sys \ WINDOWS \ system32 \ drivers \ partmgr.sys At this moment Windows XP asks me for the CD to replace these unknown versions. I have answered that I want to keep them. When I have rebooted the system WINDOWS XP DOES NOT START, THE SCREEN FREEZES !!! These are the versions I have tried: disk.sys => 5.2.3790.3959 partmgr.sys => 5.2.3790.3959 Which do you have? @RainyShadow
  9. I go to the file explorer and share the folder with right click + properties + share folder. I have simple file sharing on FAT32. I have tried the following: -Disable simple file sharing. -Deactivate "control userpasswords2" (I have it on automatic password when logging in). -I have also read about this option: Administrative Tools + Local Security Settings + Local Policies: Network Access: Sharing and security model for local accounts But surprise !!! In this Windows XP copy that option is not listed. On Local Policies I only have 7 options listed. In other Windows XP copies
  10. I can view shared files from any Android phone on a Windows XP computer on the same network without Windows XP asking for the network password. Why does this happen? How can I force Windows XP to ask for the password at least the first time?
  11. I just downloaded it and it doesn't work on my Windows XP SP3
  12. Which Kingston version works on Windows XP? I have looked for tools from other manufacturers and none of them work for me, it would be good to have a list.
  13. I use Avast v.6 Free Edition since I don't need a permanently activated antivirus that slows down my system. I only use it to analyze certain files before executing them. So I don't want more current versions of Avast that seem to work on Windows XP. https://www.avast.com/windows-xp-antivirus Besides that I also use Windows 2000 which is not supported. The latest virus definition for Avast 5, 6, 7, 8 is from March 31, 2020. This seems to be confirmed in these urls: https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/2190355-avast-endpoint-protection-now-has-an-end-of-life-of-december-31st-2019
  14. Thanks for the explanation. I'm going to try option 1. 1) write manually a MBR and partition table to it [1] I would like to know how the MBR knows that it has to start a specific file on the hard disk partition. Yes, I mark the active partition from Windows or a partitions program like Mini-Tools Partition Wizard. But how does the MBR know to start NTLDR for Windows NT 5 and BOOTMGR for Windows NT 6? It is something that I cannot understand, since just by marking the active partition and pasting NTLDR (among others) Windows 2000 and XP start up on a traditional hard drive without
  15. Manually boot a USB stick (boot files) I am trying to boot a USB stick by manually dropping the Windows files and I can't. On a normal hard drive, I would create a primary partition, mark it as active, and just copy the Windows startup files to boot. For NT 5.x (2000-XP-2003) I would put: AUTOEXEC.BAT boot.ini Bootfont.bin CONFIG.SYS IO.SYS MSDOS.SYS NTBOOTDD.SYS NTDETECT.COM ntldr And with this the hard disk starts, however, transferred to a stick this does not work. Although I read in several tutorials that the process is the same, or not? Some of these
  16. I am booting Windows 2000 on another computer and I have almost the same problems as on PM55 chipset. This time it is an Asus server from 2007 with chipset Intel Xeon 3000 (Mukilteo-2) (3000 series) (ICH7). In this case the USB 1.1 driver works correctly. And I don't have freeze problems when changing the USB2 driver for a generic one, but it tells me that USB2 is not compatible with "Standard Universal PCI to USB Host Controller" or with any other standard driver (in USB 1.1 it says yes). Even if I force the installation, I still get the yellow exclamation with code error 10. I
  17. uhjuju! Thank you very much, it has worked! What would be of us without this magnificent forum! about:config media.gmp-manager.url https://aus5.mozilla.org/update/3/GMP/%VERSION%/%BUILD_ID%/%BUILD_TARGET%/%LOCALE%/%CHANNEL%/%OS_VERSION%/%DISTRIBUTION%/%DISTRIBUTION_VERSION%/update.xml Replace %VERSION% by 51.0 leaving it like this... https://aus5.mozilla.org/update/3/GMP/%VERSION%/%BUILD_ID%/%BUILD_TARGET%/%LOCALE%/%CHANNEL%/51.0/%DISTRIBUTION%/%DISTRIBUTION_VERSION%/update.xml Go to Tools + Add-ons + Plugins In the Primetime Content Decryption Module provided
  18. Well, it's been almost 2 months, I get to install Adobe Primetime on Firefox 52 ESR but in the plugins list the message "Adobe Primetime will be installed shortly" appears continuously. Any ideas to activate it and remove the message?
  19. On various computers using Windows XP with K-Meleon (all versions) I have encountered a problem disabling personalized ad tracking cookies on Google. When I press the option "edit search settings" the pop-up window shows 1 millisecond and then turns white (not allowing time to disable). (on New Moon this works perfectly)
  20. The value did not exist. I have created it and set it to false. The problem persists. I will disable Direct3D on Windows 2000 for K-Meleon & New Moon to work in this computer.
  21. I suppose you have tried to disable the turbo
  22. Netflix is officially Windows XP compatible . This works in Firefox 49 with Silverlight
  23. It also works by disabling Direct 3D in the Windows hardware acceleration menu, so it works with 16/32 bit color I have done the video test in directx and the first Direct3D video fails, the rest look fine. I have reinstalled directx and now all the tests are correct. But K-Meleon and New Moon continue to black screen with direct3d enabled in hardware acceleration.
  24. I have found another solution, https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_xp-hardware/gpt-drives-in-xp/1826b5ee-107d-4274-83c7-3a0e0b50a958 Paragon GPT loader for XP, I have not tried it yet.
  25. Thanks for the ideas, I'm going to try now to see if I'm lucky. On w2000 I am using K-Meleon 74.0 20180718.win2000 (Palemoon-26.5-Firefox38.9) and New Moon 26.5.0-20180718.win2000 two great initiatives from @roytam1 that I hope will continue. The K-Meleon version is difficult to configure as it has many errors but for 2 years it has worked well for me moving it from one computer to another already configured. New Moon works great on w2000. I use these same browsers in windows XP but with updated versions in 2020 KM 76.2 / PM 28.9, the versions for w2000 do not work at all well in XP. The
