  1. Posting on open board taht you will not be posting on public board sounds like a poor way of starting conspiracy, ain't it? ^^
  2. Except it will be a case of, you know, few registry edits
  3. Hey patching tribe! I'm making my regular backup, just to be prepared for any trouble with updates now. So just asking once again, to be triple sure - are Ferbruary patches ok to be installed now? KB4487085-v2 looks safe?
  4. As we started using a bit of lawyerese in this thread, I'd suggest this might be violating paragraph 7.b of MSFN forum rules as long as you act like that in here, but what do i know... Glad it turned from rage and anger to constructive discussion and all's on track again.
  5. Because what you are asking for is a program of such big complexity, that there is no chance someone will just make it for a newcommer. And probably for any other reason as well, because there is little use for it, creation would take hundreds of working hours for experienced programmers, and maintenance and bug report would take even more. Secondly, there is no argumentation in your post how it could become any "common wealth". Where your request starts from "I want a program", rsponse "Find someone who can make it and pay him" might not be kind, but is plain logical.
  6. I hoped for someone more experienced to hop in here... I'm not an expert, but I'd use some tool like dmde or dd to create binary image of the disk mentioned. This is not the most easy-going way, but at lease you are sure that whatever bad happens, you have exact copy of the state from before your modifications. And that makes me doubt, I remember I used x64 tablet with 64 GB eMMC storage and windows 10 with current updates applied, and it was working. So assuming that you can mount it as a slave drive and browse on other PC, I'd just remove unnecessary files, so it has enough free space to launch and create temp files and page file, and try to boot. If this does not help, it means that failure root cause is not too little space. And no, I cannot say what at the moment.
  7. I'd personally assume that what was said on public board can be quoted. It makes sense
  8. @Sampei.Nihira OSArmor is not for me, as it would duplicate with my COMODO HIPS functionality. Hardentools and similar are a way to disable elements of an OS, that might have yet-undiscovered bugs and that I will not need, plus some more security restrictions.
  9. @adatatried changing user agent? As for PaleMoon thread, I don't want to be treated as one of MC haters... but unintended autoirony always pleases me
  10. The question we should start from to help you is "What is wrong with this old SSD, she needs to replace?".
  11. So I'd keep an eye on security fixes for the nearest supported OS (probably Server 2008). Hope you'll be sharing info Personally, I'll harden my winows even more, possibly by putting browser and/or Office in some sandboxed software and disabling more points of attack via manual modifying system settings or using some software like hardentools. Apart from EternalBlue, there was no major bug in Windows XP that was used for large-scale attack, and it looks like people are now usually via attack vectors that require action on victim's end - phishing, ransomware, macroviruses... Spyware is not that much value in the days of Facebook and Snapchat So I'd rather look for problems in Malspam and highly-positioned fake websites looks like a threat for someone, who is not a HVT him or herself. So I know that there is a danger coming from end-of-updates and it will be growing over time, but switching to modern OS will not be a panacea.
  12. Wasn't windows 98 released after windows NT listed by hotnuma?
  13. XP Updates2.zip ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ It's here, right on the 1st post! All linked to wayback machine in this post.
  14. Glad I didn't even have time to update yesterday...
  15. This soundtrack reminds me of Japanese Action Videogame soundtrack... Nothing less, nothing more
  16. So Microsoft don't give a crap to even offer it to home users... We'll lay our hands on 'em updates anyway, MSFN collaborative mind has experience in it...
  17. 1. Which version of Firefox do you use? 2. Which website do you refer to? 3. do you install POSReady 2009 updates or not?
  18. And, TBH, I've been reading how-to-geek some time ago regularly, but somewhen they started their review geek sub-section, and I feel they they've turned from help and guide articles into being big advertising tube. Now their articles are more "old is bad, new is good" themed, and argumentation "it's official, so it MUST be working better than replacement". And as for this particular article, I can agree that PM and Basilisk are slower than quantum-based Firefox, which anyone can test on his own PC, but the author also mentions security risk involved in using PM and Basilisk... and then it would be cool if he mentioned any real vulnerability that is present in Basilisk or PM, and not in the recent Firefox ESR. And last but not least, many of roytam1's builds suers were with Firefox 52ESR for as long as it was supported. We're in XP board, and there is no official alternative for this system. Remember that
  19. Hi, welcome, and have a good time asking and helping around
  20. I come from the retro-gaming world, where Rymdreglage, Swedish totally independent, totally non-commercial duo is best know for their 8-bit trip Music Video. Totally recommend. However, when you check their portfolio, they will have much more to offer. Except some songs and videos that are supposed to be funny, but are crappy in fact, they published a lot of cool songs, mainly chiptues, totally woth listening. some with their own awesome MVs too:
  21. I don't have XP 64, so i tested on windows 7. as roytam1 said, please use compat mode in about:config. I personally needed to enable all 3 (webgl, gecko and firefox compats). PS never expected to stumble upon geoportal on this site...
  22. I am grateful and cannot ask for more from you. Still, I am disappointed by TW devs and their communication with users. Please keep these things separate
  23. We are still speaking about a software, that claims support for windows XP, not for all versions released after XP Because TW notified me about that after an update caused TeamViewer Service to crash and it continued after every system reboot and after every attempt to run the software. Because TW didn't warn me about potential issue while I was prompted to update. Because TW didn't warn me when I manually installed newest version. Because their system requirements does not say that, their website does not say that. Only support board, where you need to know what are you looking for. Because most of the internet still uses ipv4, and see no reason why home user should have ipv6 installed in his local network - even f it's by default, it probably lies useless. Because secure user might follow the rule "if you do not use - uninstall it" and remove it even on newer windows. This rule isn't some geeky trick, this is one of three basic security rules by mr. Krebs. Because their installer could recognize if I have ipv6 installed, and install it on it's own - after all it has given enough permissions do do so. Because they recognized the issue soon after releasing an update from 13.0.6447 to never one, and nine months is enough to give a birth, and they still didn't give a ... requisite to giving a birth and didn't fix the bug and fail to inform users before they install a software. They didn't even reply with "no, we do not plan to fix it", which is what I would require from serious, renowned company, that treats its users fairly.
  24. Sure, I know there is a workaround, but what about fixing the software itself?
