  1. Depends on how you configure firewall, how you use your system and with who you share it. I personally hope that rumours of post-POSReady EOL XP updates will be real and there will be a way to lay my hands on them
  2. Try programs like process hacker or process explorer to check out who is a parent process for this. Also check task scheduler. If that fails, I'm out of simple solutions, and I don't know complex ones.
  3. I somehow love the topic's title... could you please rename it, so it becomes obvious what it is about from afar?
  4. Hi. You'll find many people with similar mindset here
  5. Hi Guys, I'm pre-patched for now. Woody reports out-of-band kb4483187 IE update causes crashes on Newer systems. Anyone have spotted any IE misbehaviour on XP after applying recent patches? https://www.askwoody.com/2018/reported-crash-with-the-new-out-of-band-ie-fix-on-win7-kb-4483187/
  6. Don't you, or one of your homemates, use anti-tracking software, that SPAM's Google with dummy requests? I had similar problem when I used trackmenot! browser extension.
  7. It makes me wonder why someone uncovered topic from February and makes it another "My beloved system is the best!" argument. There are plenty of dedicated topics, where all the points you are making were already said...
  8. Alternatively, leave your XP machine looking for updates for 24 to 72 hours, depending on your internet and 1st CPU core speed.
  9. Horovitz is always good. Like the man. Good guy tinfoil hatter, and writes in interesting way. Much more fluent than mine
  10. As jaclaz already said, DD https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dd_(Unix) If you are not Linux savvy, or in general not experienced with command line, I guess jaclaz would recommend you DMDE free. https://dmde.com/download.html (as he did reccomend this for me 2 years ago). If you really need something with a simple UI, you might check out if any of the popular backup software companies, like Macrium, Acronis or Aomei, has a free of charge software that can create an exact image, or other ways, clone the disk, and then mount it or browse it some way. DO NOT look for simple tools to back-up and mount drives, as they usually are designed for fully-functioning disk and Windows installations. Your search might include companies that were closed or quit the market, because any "disk cloning software for Windows 7" should work now the way it was at a release date, I suppose.
  11. I updated today certs and windows and Office. All went smoothly via Windows update. I have only TLS1.2 enabled in internet options. Fun fact - recently I changed my monitor for XP machine, from damaged 17" ACER to used 19" Dell bought for a bargain price. Dell also can serve as a US hub. What surprised me is that Windows update actually found drivers for that and provided as optional hardware update. Drivers are dated back to 2006, which means they ain't throwing old stuff away from their servers yet :)
  12. Avast recognized recent Basilisk.exe from Roytam1 as malware by heuristic engine. I reported that to Avast as false positive.
  13. Up to my experience, rather not. Most "Facebook apps" you can find for the system will be just a web wrappers, simply an IE11 limited to displaying Facebook page.
  14. @kitaro1 Did you try polish language pack for BasiliskXP? Does it work smoothly?
  15. Wrong topic, please read and ask any questions when in doubt
  16. Actually not by the company that sells 'Security', as the paper itself looks professional, but by the clickbait-driven Mass Media that refer to it, all of them linked the first post.
  17. Thanks for giving an answer proposal, but we both know I wasn't asking you The difference is that you posted some uses of such adapters, while Original Poster didn't... well, actually he asked for them, which makes your cases differ at a crucial point
  18. I'd start from asking, why have you bought such a device, without knowing what it can be used for? A hobbyist, collector of mysterious converters and adapters, or you just felt sad for 'em cables laying around useless and lonely?
  19. Soon seeing live again: https://tidesfromnebulaofficial.bandcamp.com/track/tragedy-of-joseph-merrick-2 If you are wondering how it sounds and looks live, our beloved govs decided to sponsor a site that posts footages of polish bands. See and listen: https://ninateka.pl/film/tides-from-nebula-made-in-polska But actually, all that I've been to sounded better than this one
  20. Don't forget Basilisk for XP, also by Roytam1 ->author of NewMoon
