  1. According to theiir main page, taht's not even illegal! https://www.sandboxie.com/ Sophos is excited to announce that we are making Sandboxie a free tool, with plans to transition it to an open source tool. This new evolution of Sandboxie is one we are enthusiastic about, but that does not mean this was an easy decision to make. Sandboxie has never been a significant component of Sophos’ business, and we have been exploring options for its future for a while. Frankly, the easiest and least costly decision for Sophos would have been to simply end of life Sandboxie. However, we love the technology too much to see it fade away. More importantly, we love the Sandboxie community too much to do that. The Sandboxie user base represents some of the most passionate, forward thinking, and knowledgeable members of the security community and we didn’t want to let you down. After thoughtful consideration we decided that the best way to keep Sandboxie going was to give it back to its users – transitioning it to an open source tool. We will release more information about the open source project as we continue to work on the details. Until the open source transition is completed we have decided to make all restricted features of Sandboxie completely free.
  2. Askwoody referred to 0patch service recently: https://www.0patch.com/patches.html Never heard of it before, never used it before and it looks like nothing for XP or Office 2007 was released since they died in the eyes of Microsoft, but if something appears, "Extended support" will remain closed for us, normies, and there will be no "Exceptional" patch on WU/MU... one might take a try?
  3. Or a hoax. Write "lite" in ebay announcements because I don't understand what I write about o.
  4. You guess? Thy shall knowth!
  5. Rest in peace, rloew! That's the first time someone I only knew through the internet died and, well, it feels odd. Oddly sad. But the worlds have to go on. Is there anyone who was in private contact with him to know what would happen to his legacy, both website and projects? Sorry if it's too early to ask these questions.
  6. I recently went back to classics: http://www2.tky.3web.ne.jp/~yosshin/my_works/download.html Yep, a freeware.
  7. Media keep rumouring about how unsafe XP is, but I'm keeping an eye on media news, and no rumour about massive and/or sophisticated attacks targeting XP are present. Most attacks targeting "home users" are still starting with phishing or compromised website. First you can fight against simply being careful and learning some best practices, plus using e-mail vendor who filters spam well second you can fight back using updated browser and maybe trying some isolation. Most attacks on home users are still ransomware or fake payments. First you defend yourself by making regular backup, second by using 2FA and being invulnerable for phishing. No big security hole was found since WannaCry/eternal Blue, so if you have POSReady2009 updates, you shall be secure enough. So, from home users perspective, sane XP user is still more secure of dumb clicker using whatever up-to-date system. If you really want to be aware of your outadted systems, you should start with your router, Android devices and iOT, which often contains simples tsecurity flaws "by design" and never get updated. Really, hat makes me wonder is why people whinning about outdated XP systems don't rush against Android devices being constantly far behind what google updates on daily basis, not even mention totally loosing support after few months
  8. And the "blog" links to facebook main page? o.O
  9. Not sure how often you need discord, but UI isn't THAT bad, and shall be working with Roytam's builds, which should be enough for occasional use. my last 2c and I quit OT now.
  10. You can take a try with Comodo Firewall. I never did anything as complex as you post in here, but it has a plenty of options, so you should make it up. Latest version I managed to make working with XP is 5.13. 6.x and upwards, despite being officially supported, caused my system to crash when some settings were enabled.
  11. As I initially wrote, I tried wget initially, and it was throwing out error... and sigh, I'm quite ashamed what it was. it turns out that "access denied" I initially received cam from the fact that I ran wget from user account, and wget was located in c: program files (x86) ... i did it on windows 7, GNU Wget 1.11.4. So yeah, actually I downloaded some file today, but still with wrong timestamp... as I'm not fresh enough to play with parsing content headers myself, I juts think I gotta try 1.9.4 ran from XP...
  12. Well, I tested Free Download Manager, and despite I checked the "preserve timestamp form the server" tickbox, it didn't work, and the date is recent :/ I cross-checked it with other, non-wayback machine file, and with those ones it worked well. Might it be that Internet Archive is changing those timestamps? oh, and bunch of links for testing: https://web.archive.org/web/20190726124453/http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/secu/2014/09/windowsserver2003-kb2972207-x86-nld_bb32e4ab293d32208635cc0bb9dffdb3b7a8560a.exe https://web.archive.org/web/20190726124514/http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/secu/2014/09/windowsserver2003-kb2972207-x86-ptg_c4580d1a146f572e7857018e4298a9990cdb9740.exe https://web.archive.org/web/20190726124532/http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/secu/2014/09/windowsserver2003-kb2972207-x86-ita_d5cbff29878fc957eae4b256f167918417a88e2d.exe https://web.archive.org/web/20190726124547/http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/secu/2014/09/windowsserver2003-kb2972207-x86-jpn_4675cf4de607daa7e33473efb6e0fc8ccf95cffe.exe https://web.archive.org/web/20190726124605/http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/secu/2014/09/windowsserver2003-kb2972207-x86-chs_34cde03ee16057673b89196585ab13f155742b63.exe https://web.archive.org/web/20190726124620/http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/secu/2014/09/windowsserver2003-kb2972207-x86-fra_09e7dd707ad91d01deb9daf9eeeda0285035f57f.exe https://web.archive.org/web/20190726124633/http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/secu/2014/09/windowsserver2003-kb2972207-x86-esn_2292207334a7f27e02edbe334b8411b54fe460dd.exe https://web.archive.org/web/20190726124648/http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/secu/2014/09/windowsserver2003-kb2972207-x86-enu_33be765b1a232875d327a79834a1c24e46b54745.exe https://web.archive.org/web/20190726124705/http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/secu/2014/09/windowsserver2003-kb2972207-x86-rus_64afafbce906d91f6590dff3d86bedb8627e1f55.exe https://web.archive.org/web/20190726124720/http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/secu/2014/09/windowsserver2003-kb2972207-x86-trk_472c95d7e28cef7a0704724c0deda9ba29e1ff0a.exe https://web.archive.org/web/20190726124733/http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/secu/2014/09/windowsserver2003-kb2972207-x86-cht_93673cea321e3995260b1867881141638ac197d4.exe https://web.archive.org/web/20190726124748/http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/secu/2014/09/windowsserver2003-kb2972207-x86-sve_45eb4801a83f5ac3727c71f86a08bfa4e4ec2715.exe https://web.archive.org/web/20190726124803/http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/secu/2014/09/windowsserver2003-kb2972207-x86-deu_c7f71b42fe0153e88f433c44fb82021eb7fbd2d3.exe https://web.archive.org/web/20190726124826/http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/secu/2014/09/windowsserver2003-kb2972207-x86-kor_e1b4361e12a92992d3886309ac3648831e5b6888.exe https://web.archive.org/web/20190726124841/http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/secu/2014/09/windowsserver2003-kb2972207-x86-hun_8586de439f104796026a4a80b0d02f268f60c239.exe https://web.archive.org/web/20190726124859/http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/secu/2014/09/windowsserver2003-kb2972207-x86-ptb_cc9f4110cd6a5e96013c0d1f443a32346dcb8bba.exe https://web.archive.org/web/20190726124915/http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/secu/2014/09/windowsserver2003-kb2972207-x86-csy_1f25a4497caa29e82b7f93d90a8ba17b6a0f233f.exe https://web.archive.org/web/20190726124930/http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/secu/2014/09/windowsserver2003-kb2972207-x86-plk_32b54437cc6b0de87f4dc4533ac3b9f9401d1c31.exe
  13. I updated first post: -fixed description of one update -added powershell 1.0 (wayback machine link) -replaced .NET 1.l1 links with their wayback machine versions. If there will be anything to do, it will not be me to do it - I will be away from internet for few weeks from today.
  14. KB926139 Powershell 1.0 (links for MUI and localized installers are dead, but I found this one working on pl-pl system) https://files.downloadnow.com/s/software/11/90/51/19/WindowsXP-KB926139-v2-x86-ENU.exe?token=1564041378_0e0ddfdc68da54751826f21e13787129&fileName=WindowsXP-KB926139-v2-x86-ENU.exe There is also full set of links for Vista and Server 2003 on official M$ sites, only XP links seem to be quite dead... :/
  15. Damn, I looked up using catalog and those were dead. Thanks!
  16. Updated! @PCDW_386's post above linekd in first post. Please keep it updated so we are fully covered (love delegating responsibility ^^) File in 1st post updated. Updates: -Added .net links, courtesy of @heinoganda (3.5 and 4.0 Wayback machine references not tested yet) -Added Server 2003-only links for .Net updates -Updated marks of SSE2-exclusive patches + added their list at the end, courtesy of @ED_Sln Questuions: - Server 2003 .NET 1.1 patches have only 18 languages, instead of "normal" 24 variants. Was .NET 1.1 published in limited locales, or did MS manage to wipe off some links? - Are there multi-locale links for those patches? - Do we want to archive Powershell 1.0? links are still on-line, but we have PS 2.0, so is there any reason for that? Problems: - Links for KB2978114 (Server-2003 only) are all dead, and Wayback Machine finds nothing in archive. Can we somehow lay our hand on those files? - I did not wayback-machine-archived .NET 1.1 links yet. There were some problems with previous file versions, due to magnificent board's copy-paste capabilities, any problems report to me, please
  17. What about KB4507456 telemetry reported here? I was not offered this update via WU, only KB4507449, but maybe "anyone" had this update?
  18. @dencorso you're not the moderator we deserve, but the moderator we need ^^ @PCDW_386 most of these Wayback Machine links were tested by me recently, as I downloaded the files myself using them txt list is ok, drop it and I'll attach it in first post.
  19. I updated the list, as @heinoganda found some character issues board did to me during copy-pasting into N++, grr.... @PCDW_386 all Mediafire links should be archived in Wayback Machine. Since servers might get dead soon, If you could make separate file with all links replaced by Wayback machine url's, that would be great. If there will be some links to be fixed manually, I'd be able to handle but 6500+ links is too much for me
  20. List of XP updates with description and links updated with corresponding findings of @ED_Sln and @heinoganda Do not contain .net installers and Microsoft Security Essentials (to be found in separate topic) @dencorso don't you think it should land at the beginning of the topic, to make the list visible? XP Updates2.zip
  21. Sorry to be a police dog here, but I guess Vista and Server 2008 deserves their own topics in Vista board. Good archive needs to be indexed, you know
  22. If so, they will be able to update to W7 SP1, and then install SHA2 patch, so no "decommissioning" is happening in here
  23. Rather yes, as windows update will start requiring code-signing mechanisms not supported by XP/ Vista. Whether patches will be still available via catalog or totally disposed off, I could not find exact statement. Maybe if we find some genius hacker to write unoficcial SHA-2 patch for XP/Vista/Server2003/server2008 we could still use those systems, but I guess Microsoft will rather implement a killshwitch on their end, some sort of {if (os.version == "XP") {connection.reject();}} I remember i was about to check this tool in the past, but I got it lost from my radar in the meantime...does this tool include POSREADY 2009 patches, or only pure XP patches after April 2014? What is the update mechanism of it, does it download patches connecting to WU, or download them from catalog, or has its own patch repository?
