  1. According to the PCI council TLS 1.0 will no longer be considered "Secure" and will be considered End-Of-Life after 30 June 2018. TLS 1.0 was initially created in 1999. They Suggest Migrate to a minimum of TLS 1.1, preferably TLS 1.2, citing only some of 1.0's vulnerabilities can be avoided, not all. https://blog.pcisecuritystandards.org/are-you-ready-for-30-june-2018-sayin-goodbye-to-ssl-early-tls Well, my website (Running Server 2003) Had a very short run at having a "secure" version... only a couple of months since I set it up. My certificate is self-signed anyways. Oh well.
  2. Version 3.0 and 3.1 Confirmed NOT Working On XP or Vista. Neither normal version or portable. They just silently close.
  3. Well you still CAN use the old phone service rather than the smartphone one... just tell it you're not on a smartphone. but the smartphone version is way better. By the way all you need is a texting-enabled phone. you can then type the link it texts your phone into a computer web browser and do it that way. Sorry landlines, you'll have to do it the old way.
  4. A month or so ago I had the Google backup and sync client running on my Windows Server 2003 installation... Still works today. I didn't need to fiddle with it to get it installed... Seems like it would be the same for XP. I'll have to look myself.
  5. Freindly Reminder that almost a month later... iTunes is still working. Apple sure can't manage to break things.
  6. Updated to reflect the fact that he has more than one build. Silly me. It was too late at night when I put this together.
  7. Firefox 52 ESR has reached End-Of-Life on September 5th 2018. Users on Windows 7+ can migrate to Firefox 60 ESR, However Vista and XP users are left in the dust. I Personally would recommend XP & Vista Users use one of rotyam1's web browsers if they aren't already: His Main builds being New Moon, a fork of pale moon, and Basilisk, a more Firefox-like browser. He also has a K-Meleon Goanna build However, they appear to have moved the date again, and have made yet another discrepancy. Here you can see 5 September 2018: 21 August 2018 appears to be their final decision. they're back to 5 sep, lol https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/end-support-windows-xp-and-vista The final version, 52.9, Was released on 26 June. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1319164
  8. I still get emails from MSFN for followed threads and messages, if that’s what you mean...
  9. I was watching a tv show called What Would You Do? It was a brand new episode. On the show there is a cash register in the background running XP. apologies, no picture...
  10. It seems that the recent server crash brought back a bug. When switching between pages of threads, using the page buttons, you get this: A spinny loading thing forever and ever. One must refresh the page and then the correct page of the thread is shown. Can you fix this again? Thank you.
  11. Seems smart to me. I knew it wasn't just several...I'm known for my massive understatements. Maybe this will just be another iTunes and continue to work for a while after 01-Jan-19
  12. I was browsing Twitter and saw something about steam ending support for XP. Not believing, I went to the Steam website, and unfortunately its true. I've been told there's several games that require XP to run on Steam. Considering that, it seems like a dumb move. https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=1558-AFCM-4577
  13. So why do you guys think iTunes continues to work? Did they just forget? Don't ask them, they'll probably "fix" it!
  14. Still Works! Even Without HTTPS Proxy! It says undefined off to the side. Don't Worry! It is just saying you need to purchase the entire album to get the song (and apparently freaking out a little): I had itunes gift card at some point, but lost it. Can anybody on XP/Vista confirm/deny the working of purchases?
  15. I suspect when you close the lid the laptop may be overheating, because it doesn't go to sleep. There isn't good ventilation with the lid shut. The switch that makes it know when its closed could be broken... but more likely a program is preventing sleep. can you manually put it to sleep from the start menu or a hotkey? http://www.tomsitpro.com/articles/windows-8.1-sleep-hibernation-settings,2-737-3.html also make sure all your drivers are installed. (I read your issue wrong)

    IE 8 in 2018?

    (Sorry if there's a clarity issue here, Its growing on me that there likely is...sorry...) I think he might mean did you install the updates listed on the page he linked to. Specifically these updates have been released after the end of Vinilla XP support. Find Them Here: http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Home.aspx The Office ones are only needed if you use the Compatibility Pack to open DOCX files on Office versions older than 2007 ALSO: You might need MSI v4.5: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8483
  17. Used to point to MSN.com, (DEFINATELY should have mentioned that.) but now it goes to http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/errorpages, in IE, at least. No. they show http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/errorpages Unless MS fixes the redirector there is no fix other than changing the deafault to something else (ex msn.com)... this post just an explanation for people.
  18. Microsoft released in a TechNet blog post on February 1st that Office 2019 (Scheduled for release later in 2018) Will only be supported on Windows 10. They also reveal in the post that it will be supported for only 7 years (5 Mainstream, 2 Extended) Rather than the usual 10 years. Office 365 will suffer a similar fate in 2020 it would seem. Source: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/windowsitpro/2018/02/01/changes-to-office-and-windows-servicing-and-support/ EDIT: Albeit unsupported, It has been made to work on Windows 8.x. Not like anyone needs new versions of office, anyways...
  19. The Infernal Exploder default Homepage (http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd=ie&pver=6&ar=msnhome) Is confirmed NOT working on Windows 98, 2000, and XP as of a week or so. Most people have probably changed their IE homepage, but I haven't. Plain old MSN.com still functions as intended. Now the default link redirects to an error page. (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/errorpages) Workaround (Pretty obvious, but): Set homepage to something else... in my case msn.com because I'm boring. But this is annoying because I can no longer leave the homepage at default.
  20. I'm not seeing anything that shows that it can take anything else, very possible the BIOS is locked to this CPU And you have a 100mhz FSB so I don't think you can use the 'fancy' 133mhz -EB models PIII, if any at all. Generally Tualatin (codename of later PIIIs, including the 1.4ghz models) dont work without an adapter, too. I'm assuming you have an 810 chipset but can you crack it open and look? it should have writing on the north bridge as to what it is.
  21. Greetings! Welcome to MSFN!
  22. Hello! Welcome to MSFN!
  23. I can confirm that it works perfectly-- I've used it for a couple of years now. I've had intermittent issues with the installer, though. Usually the full installer is needed.
  24. It's not exactly what you want... but once I was able to run IE8 with the IE6 theme. I'll look into how I did it and update this post. UPDATE: Meh. cant find anything. I did not install anything special to make this happen... I just found something on the computer... perhaps residue from an IE6 installation...this hard drive it was on was sadly wiped.
