  1. I may have found the cause of that failure. You could try stop the "automatic update" service, delete the "%windir%\SoftwareDistribution\AuthCabs" directory, or even the whole SoftwareDistribution directory (I didn't do that though it seems no harm), reboot (not sure if it is necessary), then the signature validation passes.
  2. If thunderbird is also affected, you could raise the issue to bugzilla.mozilla.org.
  3. Never mind. I find offline update method using wsusscn2.cab could find office xp updates, and get the patch list.
  4. In order to fix OCR not working in "Document Imaging" tool, I am thinking of re-install MS Office XP. I have the original installation media, but the office xp update service is ended, so I need to get a update list and download them manually from catalog.update.microsoft.com. Now there are two problems: 1, Is there an update list for Office XP as for Windows XP? The list is relatively short (24 patches) seen from control pane "add or remove programs", so I could do it by hand anyway, but: 2, There are 3 updates without KB number, only shown as "update" and "cannot be removed"; click the "support information" will only get an "update ID": DA256408-A2E7-41A5-8AD6-62ACB86A0FD7 (this one I have identified as OfficeXpSp3-kb832671) 106E7A1C-22DA-42D7-8E74-37772A9C89FB FA111F3D-A299-438D-A61F-2E8D5138D1D2 The latter two I cannot find any KB number information.
  5. I 'd like to know if Serpent 52 still supports export SSL key like this: https://wiki.wireshark.org/TLS?action=show&redirect=SSL#Using_the_.28Pre.29-Master-Secret I created a bat file as this : set SSLKEYLOGFILE=E:\Basilisk\keylogfile.txt D:\green\basilisk\basilisk.exe But although keylogfile.txt is created, Wireshark (the last version for XP 1.12.13) cannot decrypt the SSL stream. It used to work with Firefox.
  6. Thanks for the update. And still a little surgery should be done to the install.rdf in the xpi archive to make it install on Serpent 52: <Description> <em:id>{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}</em:id> <em:minVersion>52.9</em:minVersion> <em:maxVersion>52.9.2021.*</em:maxVersion> </Description>
  7. I notice the huge memory occupation of Gmail web UI. The original working set memory of Serpent 52 is about 400MBi; When opened a gmail tab, it increases above 600MBi, more than 50% percent! Is it google's fault?
  8. Since you do not enable POSready patch, I think you could safely install all patch offered, leave off those would not install, then turn off WU for ever. Use other offline patcher alternatively.
  9. Yes, 16.12 is the last one displays DEP status right. Thank you for the tip! I usually use P.E. to find out which app is visiting network suspiciously, reading/writing crazily, consumes most memory, etc. I would not check DEP status frequently; I added that column because I saw another person's screenshot. And I disable image signature checking by default for it consumes lots of memory at opening, and never gives correct result at first run (lots of "not verified" error) .
  10. The process explorer version is 16.22, the last working one for XP. The DEP column shows nearly all processes are "Disabled", despite that I choose "Enable DEP for all programs and services except ..." in the system->performance of the control panel. What's wrong?
  11. From http://web.archive.org/web/20191108174030/https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/898461/software-update-898461-installs-a-permanent-copy-of-the-package-instal I have KB898461 installed long ago and integrated to a fresh installation, no problem observed. But from descriptions above KB898461 is not needed now since WU and AU is dead for XP.
  12. Thanks for your through test. So it seems some audio related APIs (are they standardized?) is only present in the newest chrome browser. But due to strong disapproval of 360's malware, I'd rather install zoom's client if I have urgent need to run zoom on PC. p.s. I advise you not using 360, strongly; and less strongly, zoom, for it's also reported to be censored by PRC, which I think is normal if it is developed and operated by chinese.
  13. No add-on and client is needed. You can use browser only: My problem is it complains that audio do not work: Video received OK, and chat works. p.s. Chrome 49 has the same problem.
  14. It shouldn't need install I think, just a web application run inside browser.
  15. Has anyone tried using Zoom in Serpent 52? I can't get audio work.
