  1. And now something totally different... http://glovis.usgs.gov/ This is the slovest running site i ever opened on regular basis, you may check this one as well :>
  2. Well I had a problem with Hearts of Iron II game coming from one of Cenega's* editions, maybe they screwed something up? Maybe try to get some other game's version (eg. demo, as mentioned at beginnig) to check that. Sorry, nothing else comes to my mind, seems to me like a situation where the game just doesn't like this specified configuration and for unknown reason and refuses to work. *(Kolekcja Klasyki publisher, for rest of world information)
  3. Ok, first I'm sorry if I ask too stupid questions or give too obvious advices, but start from the simplest things? Did you patch the game with the latest ones? What are your desktop serrings (resolution, colors)? Some older games required me to turn down to 16 bit color palette to run properly. Do you have some kind of IS software taht can possibly cause problems? Added AOE to whitelist? Tried to run the game without the intro (which means moving away intro file from it's folder for a while)? Does the game have any config.ini file where modify games settings? Maybe some default setting causes problems. And last but not least, you have Win7 stated as your main OS in your profile, Uncle Google says it should work fine under new machines, maybe there's no need to use Win 98? @ jumper Wikipedia says: Pentium 166 Mhz CPU, 32 MB RAM, 200 MB HDD
  4. @jaclaz: So much trololo Yes, I do use XP hme witth POSReady updates nd encounter no problems. So If you use it and you're worried about safety... just don't. Properly set up Is will keep you safe. I tried to follow the "apocalypse" topic and haven't read about any unpached critical vounerability in XP so far. No, I never used IE8. I quit after IE6, then I went Firefox and never back. @up Opera?
  5. Ugh, gets creepy... Can't tell you why, but for some reason keeping 7 as "main" and upgrading system on VM to 10 seems more "legal" to me
  6. Maybe this VMWare audit clause was made for the case of virtual machines running not licensed versions of Windows, since one should have a licennce for each of 'em. Just guessing, can't think of any other explanation making a smallest bit of sence. Not that this makes this much of it...
  7. Simply sticking with XP until I buy myself a new PC. Everything works fine so far, suprisingly well as for a dead system :>
  8. Yep Comodo can be reccomended. While versions 6 and 7 caused my XP to crash, I still use Firewall and Defense+ from version 5. I used AV as well, until I encountered update prblems, as described here: https://forums.comodo.com/antivirus-help-cis/comodo-av-version-5122562492599-wont-update-t88447.0.html You must be aware that some people disreccomend Comodo due to their EULA. Additionally to Comodo FW/D+ I have Avira AV Free (best accuracy according to latest AV Comparatives test), Malwarebytes nti-Malware as on-demand scanner (from time to time), and Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit as additional paranoid protection (easy to use, almost install-and-forget) Hope I helped a bit :>
  9. Or other words, hi :> Humble geographer from Poland here, Brought here thansks to Windows XP home half-official updates, trying to get smarter in any kind of IT-related things. Video games addict (mainly PC, but also 8/16 bit consoles and computers, including my most beloved Pegasus famiclone and Famicom AV), history and military thing freak, most recently wandering about security-related forums (malware, privacy etc.). Trying to learn Power Shell - don't know why actually chosen this one from all things that might have been learnt, but keeps me interested so far. I hope to learn here few trick and maybe help someone if I can.
