  1. Hi guys, I have two almost identical machines running genuine Windows XP Home OEM SP3 - one is my work computer, the other is used for file storage. Internet Explorer 8 installed; POSReady hack too. Automatic update is off, I prefer to check for updates manually on weekly or by-weekly basis. Usually there is no issue with updates, except for the very annoying fact that of lately it literally takes several hours for the updates to show up (per usual, every time they are no more than a few of them - update for Internet Explorer, the OS and now and then MS Office). I use Symantec Endpoint Protection 12 client for anti-virus and firewall - this thingy is pretty heavy, but it does not really matter if it is on or off when the update is going on. Both machines have 2.2 MHz dual-core processor, one has 4 GB of dual-channel DDR400 memory, the other - 2 GB. In other words, hardware is not a problem for the scanning of updates to take so long. I have been browsing this forum, as well as the Internets for solution, but could not really find anything that would help (probably my bad). So I would really appreciate it if a friendly soul guides me on a way to solve the issue. Thanks in advance! Best :-)
  2. Hi again :-) For the benefit of the community and per the suggestion of @sdfox7; I tried DivX 5.1.1 Pro Codec on my Win 95C machine. It works flawlessly. In the process though I hit some snags. Namely, when I first tried to play DivX/MP3 encoded video file, Windows Media Player loaded up some crappy InterVideo Audio filter (iviaudio.ax), and not the Fraunhofer MP3 filter that I wanted, thus producing a garbled and crackling sound. This necessitated me to get rid of the InterVideo crap. After some search on the Internets, I managed to do this by the following: 1. Start/Run 2. regsvr32 -u iviaudio.ax 3. Delete iviaudio.ax from Windows\System 4. Restart comp. After that, Windows Media Player loads up the MP3 codec to play audio as it should. I also had to install Radium MP3 codec 1.263 (believe it is a hacked official Fraunhofer MP3 codec; had it in my archive, it is also available on the Internets). Finally, InterVideo WinDVD 3.0 (my software archive is bottomless) can play perfectly single AND double-layer DVD disks. It is awesome. The only remaining problem so far is that no version of VobSub that I tried works under Win 95C. Have to figure something else out in order to display subtitles. Hope this info will help other people. Best :-)
  3. Thank you very much, LoneCrusader, only because of you I now have a wonderful Win 95C machine based on a 900MHz CPU. Great work with the fix :-)
  4. Hi again, I experimented with a bunch of DivX Codec releases, and found out that DivX Codec Pro 5.0.5 works perfectly under Win 95C. Version 6.0 and above do NOT work, however. Hopefully someone in my shoes will find this info helpful. Interestingly enough, the movie rip that I used for my trials was DivX 3 video-encoded, and WMA2 audio-encoded. This prompted me to dig up and install decoder for WMA2 audio - thankfully, I had it in my software archive. More trials will follow, and results will be posted. Win 95 is so much fun, despite the occasional hiccups - for example, every now and then my machine hangs on shutting down. Best to all :-)
  5. Hi guys, I was wondering if someone would know which is the latest version of the DivX codec that works under Win 95C. Thanks in advance for help with this question. Best :-)
