    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
  2. 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.
  3. 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...
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Greetings! Welcome to MSFN!
  7. Hello! Welcome to MSFN!
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Thanks! that worked... I didn't think to try ones that didn't explicity say they worked with 98se (that one appears to be for 2000+) It works perfectly! ...and that one was right on thew drivers page for this sytem on dells site...if only I had been adventurous when I saw it before.
  11. Hello, all. I am trying to get the audio working on a Dell Optiplex 170L (865 chipset) with Windows 98 SE. I have all of the other drivers installed, the video was a little tricky, but i got it eventually. Here is the information from the Unknown Devices utility. Thanks for any help... really don't want to use a PCI sound card if i don't have to. P.S. On the dell forum a long time ago some guy said He got it working, but didn't state how.
  12. Figured it was worth a shot to try patching the Java installer with XomPie. While it changed many things, no dice.
  13. Found XP running at the front desk at the local bowling alley. I tried several times to get a picture but my phone Reeeeeeeally does not like to focus on screens at a distance more than point-blank. (I will try again eventually) Heres the best I got: The little screens over by the lanes that show your score appear to be running MS-DOS. The first lane we tried to use was evidently having an issue:
  14. TWO XP sightings today! First one was at CountryMax ( a farm/pet supply store). It was on a cash register. Interestingly, the other two registers ran 7 and 10, leaving none with the same OS. No picture for this one, sorry, the cashiers were conveniently in the way. The second was Windows XP Embedded at Wegmans (Grocery Store), on a scale. Amusingly it was stuck logging on. They have many scales there, they probably run XP embedded as well.
  15. It says VFC above it and AMC (ATI Multimedia Channel) to the side and below it in your picture. It is an extension by ATI of the VESA Feature connector. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feature_connector https://web.archive.org/web/20050210035518/http://www.ati.com/support/faq/amcvip.html Note that they say you CANNOT use an IDE cable (Assuming you even had an appropriate device to hook to it): But perhaps you can....
  16. Would an object like this be of use? https://www.ebay.com/itm/PCI-32bit-Dual-PS2-PS-2-Card-PC-Keyboard-Mouse-PCI-2Ports-PS-2-without-USB-/181671723885 Or would that require a driver the Windows 2000 installation would not have at Install?
  17. Windows POSReady 2009 has been spotted at a Canoe Shop. I am responsible for it being there, I am involved with the business and that was their loaner system until I got them their new Windows 7 PC up and running to replace a dead HP AIO. Dell Dimension 4700 if anybody's curious
  18. It seems to be different in the Finger Lakes Region. Here they all run Windows 7 with the classic theme.
  19. Windows XP has been spotted on the local news (Fox Rochester) No picture, it was just probably stock footage from years ago, as it showed the old Google logo.

  22. Well, the United States is losing its Net Neutrality, The FCC has voted 3-2 to remove the rules. It sounds like there is still some hope, there's congress and stuff, and talk that the FCC could be sued. https://www.theverge.com/2017/12/14/16776154/fcc-net-neutrality-vote-results-rules-repealed
