  1. Yes, no uninstaller exists at this time. I believe running the installer on the administrator account has modified permissions on the folder, so thats why the installer can’t automatically upgrade. sorry for the confusion
  2. @roytam1 It looks like you have now seen your own proof it works without SSE, but here is mine anyway, just in case you want to see. The browser is a bit sluggish, as expected, due to no real GPU and an old budget processor, but it does indeed work on this MMX-only Mendocino CPU.
  3. 1a. I still cannot replicate that error on any of my machines. 2 a, b and c: Sorry, i didnt mean literally the "Administrator" account, just an account with admin privileges. please install from your normal account as you were doing, because if it worked before you evidently have sufficient rights there. Also, @roytam1 I can provide that screenshot you ask for when i get home later today
  4. Even though it works on MMX-only?? forgot to mention till now, but it does not still work on the K6, as I expected, due to the K6 having a half-baked MMX. I do not beleive this to be a bug. But as I believe I stated, the serpent IA32 build works completely fine on my Mendocino 500MHz PII-Based Celeron with MMX only and not any SSE. Here's even a shot of it running on the MMX-only mendocino
  5. I can certainly try again on the K6, tomorrow. Just about to go to sleep here.
  6. Turns out it was because the AMD K6 seemingly doesnt have a full MMX implementation. Serpent IA32 works fine on the Mendocino (full MMX) Anyway: Announcing browser installer version 3.1! Change Log: -Added Support for Serpent IA32 -added message to warn users to run as Admin -updated serpent info in the info section As always, get it here: http://i430vx.strangled.net/files/XP/RoyTam%20Browser%20Installer.exe
  7. On my K6 166MHz system, yes. That's the one. Haven't tried the Mendocino yet.
  8. I tried the new serpent build on an even older PC, since I saw "ia32" I figured it didn't even need SSE. However it does not appear to run. Does the Serpent ia32 build require SSE, and as such is a bit mislabeled, or is NoSSE support just not working right now but intended to be at some point?
  9. Hi RoyTam1, tested your Serpent 52 Non-SSE2 test build, It's working beautifully on my Pentium III 1.4GHz. Once I finish tweaking it I expect it to run even better. But even as of now, discord web (which, if you aren't familiar, is very bloated and slow, even a bit sluggish on my Core Duo ThinkPad) is quite usable on the PIII using that browser. It's truly amazing. I'd imagine you may find more optimizations to make, as the build is in it's infancy. Keep up the good work, dude!
  10. Like win32 said, yep! even k-meleon, i made it back up the profile first for that one, since its in the program folder. planning on making it more seamless for other browsers (as in, not deleting the UOC patch if installed)
  11. I have updated my Unofficial RoyTam1 browser installer to version 3.01! change log: -fixed download of FF45 SSE (was downloading a .gpc file instead of the 7z) as always, keep me updated with bugs, feature requests, and problems. get it here: http://i430vx.net/files/XP/RoyTam Browser Installer.exe
  12. What ever happened to that effort to port stock chromium?
  13. My first that I really owned was a Compaq Presario 1065. I got it in maybe 2011 or so. (For the curious: Win95A, 16MB RAM, 1-ish GB hard drive.) The second, a couple years later, was a V2 Premier system (P4 3.4GHz, 512mb ram, 180GB hard drive, XP Home) The Presario lives on but the V2 Premier POSTed more and more intermittently until it outright refused to. Pretty sure it was the CPU that died, but the motherboard got damaged in storage so i couldn't verify that. These systems were both hand-me-downs from where my parents work.
  14. Because they decided to. Same reason that anyone uses any program. but I booted my one 7 system with the MSE on it, let it update, no EOL nag there yet, FWIW
  15. Instant messaging platform, I guess it's sorta how (old) skype works in terms of it's function. Upwards of 300 million users IIRC https://telegram.org/
  16. I'm just speculating here, but I bet that the part where they fail is when MU says "verifying download", doesn't see a valid SHA-1 cert, and fails. The Standalone updates either don't check, or use their own/more basic integrity checking method.
  17. I figured I'd make a group on Telegram, to perhaps get a few people that don't like/ prefer not to use discord. The group serves the same basic purpose as the Discord Server, a way for MSFN members to join and talk about MSFN and related stuff. The link to join is: https://t.me/msfnorg
  18. If/When @looking4awayout's build process slows down a bit, I can happily host it on my site. I can do it now but it wont be easy keeping up with his new builds every five minutes.
  19. Sorta funny that we have a thread on each forum about the state of the other, but in the past couple of years especially, sadly neccesary.
  20. A lot of normal "legacy" firefox extensions work just fine too...
  21. I mainly Use @roytam1's K-Meleon, Serpent, and New Moon 28 builds. Some people say they have sites that wont load in these but I have encountered one as of yet. I've never tried the 360 extreme browser, because while I hear some tracking is blocked, it doesn't sound like all is. And I have no real need for a heavy chrome browser anyway.
  22. RyanVM is back up information on the outage: Re: Shutting this down Post by RyanVM » Tue Nov 12, 2019 10:52 am When it rains, it pours.... Sorry for the recent outage. My hosting provider had to take my site offline due to it being under extreme load (looks like it was being DOSed or something). Hopefully a temporary issue....
  23. The actual AOL website notes that the chrome version of shield has NO XP/Vista compatibility
  24. Maybe compared to the older ones, or some fluke causing that...but of the 15+ Win7 PCs I either have or deal with, it has degraded performance horribly, especially in windows explorer. But that's my 2¢, only. :)
