  1. AKA, the only one around these parts running Sandboxie on Vista . Appreciate the title though . Still with FF52 ESR, for the time being. Been playing with roytam1's Serpent and New Moon lately though. No problems with either in Sandboxie, so far. Sorry for taking so long to reply.

  3. Hi @Vistapocalypse Just updated to Sandboxie v5.28 a few minutes ago. System is Vista HP x86, updated to April 2019. All is working well.
  4. @DanR20 @Mathwiz @VistaLover Thank you very much for the info, it's been very helpful . Just wondering also, what's the proper procedure for updating Serpent without losing custom tweaks and Addons? And, does the above mean the current release of Serpent/moebius is less secure than FF 52.9.0 ESR? Thanks.
  5. Hi, I'm currently running FF 52.9.0 ESR on Vista HP x86, and starting to worry with FF being so outdated. I've been looking at both browsers below, but not sure which one I should be using. Serpent/moebius for XP! http://o.rths.cf/basilisk/basilisk55-win32-git-20190330-09b851794-xpmod.7z Serpent/UXP for XP! https://o.rths.cf/basilisk/basilisk52-g4.1.win32-git-20190330-843e4ceff-xpmod.7z What's the difference between the two? Is one more secure than the other? The UI for basilisk55 looks better on Vista, but security is my prime concern. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks. @roytam1 Huge thanks for all your hard work, and time .
  6. @mike_shupp Thanks for your reply, and sorry for taking so long to get back to you. @Vistapocalypse gave me a good tip that maybe kb4338380 won't install due to earlier Meltdown and Spectre patches I'd skipped (they broke Sandboxie on my system). Gave them another try with an updated Sandboxie (v5.26), and here's where I'm at now: March 2018 KB4089229, KB4090450 These were the original updates that broke Sandboxie (SB). Now installed and working with SB 5.26. April 2018 KB4093478 This one also broke SB, but has since been superseded by updates in Jun,Aug 2018 - installed fine, SB working. July 2018 KB4340583 Never tested this one against SB, but it was superseded by KB4341832 in Aug - installed, and SB working. Aug 2018 KB4338380 Unfortunately, still getting - "This update does not apply to your system". I'm not overly worried atm though, it's currently marked by MS as "Exploitation Less Likely". I'll give it another look next month. On the upside, I'm now fully patched up to Aug, minus KB4338380, which might very well be replaced down the road. Kinda more pleased right now with the Sandboxie fiasco fixed. Thanks @mike_shupp , and @Vistapocalypse for your help.
  7. @Vistapocalypse Yeah, Sandboxie 5.26 (latest version) has been working good so far. Thanks for the advice re: the Meltdown and Spectre patches. I've been meaning to test them again since I updated Sandboxie. Probably best to post my results over on the Server 2008 Vista Updates thread.
  8. Many thanks @Sampei.Nihira . FF 52 ESR stopped updating NS at v5.1.8.4. I would have missed this update had it not been for your post, and this thread . @WinClient5270 , Huge thanks also, for creating and maintaining this awesome thread! And the same to those who've contributed to it .
  9. Thanks @greenhillmaniac . I wish MS had stayed with individual updates, makes it a lot easier to avoid a single problematic update, if one comes up. From now on, it's either all or none . @All Anyone else have a problem with kb4338380 (Aug 2018)? I'm getting a "Doesn't apply to your system" when I try to install. I think @Chronius reported something similar earlier, but those posts have since been deleted. I unpacked the update, and according to the text file inside, it seems to apply to Vista systems.
  10. @greenhillmaniac Are you missing KB4339291 & KB4339854 in July's updates? https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4339291/security-update-for-security-feature-bypass-vulnerability-in-windows https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4339291 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4339854/win32k-elevation-of-privilege-vulnerability-in-windows https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4339854 Edit: I forgot KB4340007 (.NET) Security Only update for .NET Framework 2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP2, 4.5.2, and 4.6 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4340007/security-only-update-for-net-framework-2-0-sp2-3-0-sp2-4-5-2-and-4-6-f https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4340007 ------------- Thanks again for keeping your repository updated :) .
  11. @JodyT , I'm still holding off on January's patches. This month's updates have been a huge mess. I need to transfer a lot of data off my system first, and make a system image , before I'm going to attempt anything. Steve Gibson has just released a handy little tool, InSpectre (portable), you might find interesting. https://www.grc.com/inspectre.htm --------------------------- Found another January Server 2008 update, released on the 12th. No mention of it at any of the usual places. Just by chance I was browsing Microsoft Update Catalog earlier, and came across it. I really wish MS would get their act together (Sigh!).

  12. January 9th 2018 Updates After last weeks out-of-band updates, there's not a lot for this month's Patch Tuesday. Just .NET updates by the look of it.

  13. Hi greenhillmaniac, Seems MS just updated your link today, for 2018. Each month, MS also release a new Security update deployment information web page, which is pretty helpful. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/20180109/security-update-deployment-information-january-9-2018 Ghacks too, provide a good guide of the updates available every patch Tuesday. Thanks for keeping your repository updated, btw.
