  1. Then I need to be enlightened, as I am too young to remember any of these happening and I don't know what requirements ned to be met.
  2. It worked on older browser version having support for NPAPI plugins,. At work I have Windows 10 workstation, so Firefox 53+, newest chrome, or Edge are the competitors, and when I received my computer, all were too new to support Silverlight
  3. https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/93455-what-is-the-sse2-instruction-set-how-can-i-check-to-see-if-my-processor-supports-it Internet explorer is integrated into Windows XP operating system. Install security updates for IE8 TLS 1.1 and 1.2 might be used by other software, that relies on system integration instead of their own, so even if you don't use it intentionally, it looks like better to turn on
  4. Hey, just a notice - I created a topic requesting dedicated board for roytam1 browsers https://msfn.org/board/topic/178117-roytam1s-browsers-dedicated-board-in-members-projects-sub-forum/ Take a look and vote in a poll if you agree
  5. Hey, what do you think about making dedicated board for roytam1's Firefox-based browser builds having a dedicated board somewhere in https://msfn.org/board/forum/102-member-contributed-projects/ ? Currently everything is discussed in one topic: Which has already grown into megathread with different bug reports, questions, discussions related to roytam1's browsers... and they're quite many of them. Trying to find relevant info is getting quite hard with the volume :/ Dedicated board will help a) users to easily find his area of interest in the topic dedicated to his build/issue/question/suggestion b) help author to keep track of a separate issues. As the browsers seem to be popular among MSFN users, this is getting needed. Users, please vote in the poll to show if you agree Admins, mods, is this possible to happen? I contacted roytam1 beforehand and he agrees Plus, if the board gets created some redirection link in XP board will be helpful, as the browsers builds aim at XP compatibility, obviously PS turned voters visibility on.
  6. There might be old corporate websites that still relies on Silverlight, and as long as M$ officially provides support, they need to update... beware corporate lawyers, rarrrr! Last year I had to open Internet Explorer for once, as I needed to view some boring corporate broadcast and only IE was capable of displaying it - technology relied on Silverlight
  7. Glad we had no "memory hole" this time Get back to good health and thanks for quick action.
  8. If noone (even @FranceBB ) knows, then I'm afraid we cannot help you Unfortunately, Avast on my XP just works, so I don't have any experience in this matter.
  9. On my end, all found within seconds and installed with no bugs spotted so far! Only issue was .Net update running for half an hour, but as long as it works, I have no problem with it.
  10. I every hospital I've been to in past year I've been seeing XPs, so that's not even a challenge.
  11. Which means, you gotta start a job in NHS to solve the mystery, as this is the (geographically) closest thing to your current position where we hope such agreement will be working
  12. More of 'what Steam EULA says' in this case.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. I somehow love the topic's title... could you please rename it, so it becomes obvious what it is about from afar?
  16. Hi. You'll find many people with similar mindset here
  17. 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/
  18. 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.
  19. 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...
  20. Alternatively, leave your XP machine looking for updates for 24 to 72 hours, depending on your internet and 1st CPU core speed.
  21. Horovitz is always good. Like the man. Good guy tinfoil hatter, and writes in interesting way. Much more fluent than mine
