  1. I don't have that problem, but I use it on an LCD and a TV through the SVIDEO out. I can't say I've actually tried connecting both DVI ports.
  2. NOD32 8.0.319.0 is probably the best/fastest antivirus for XP and XP x64. It's not free, and there's a nag that keeps asking you to update.
  3. Which GPU are you running? I'm running a 9800GT in XP x64 and it works well. Try the following: 1) Run the nVidia uninstaller, remove everything - reboot 2) Run DDU (last XP version is - reboot 3) Install nVidia 340.52 driver If your power supply is good and you can rule out the drivers, then your GPU might be defective, which was quite common for any series 6xxx and up. It's debatable that there has been no stable nVidia silicon up until perhaps Kepler.
  4. For what it's worth, I had OFfice 2003 installed for years and kept on top of the compatibility pack updates... One day, one of the updates broke Office and I said to heck with it and moved on to 2010 with a classic menu add-on.
  5. If you feel like testing later operating systems and browsers, test Chalkboard. IE11 is by far superior to anything else in terms of raw speed... Microsoft probably has all sorts of undocumented API calls and under-the-hood secrets that they keep from devs like Chromium, or the Chromium devs just don't care enough about Windows to match its speed. IE11 also beats Edge, hands down. On my old Windows 10 Tablet which I use in the bathroom, I exclusively use IE11... It's the only browser I can use in a reasonable manner on such a slow system.
  6. Anyone know anything about KB4464524 released 5/7/2019? Are the other updates safe? Update for Microsoft Outlook 2010 (KB4464524) 64-Bit Edition Security Update for Microsoft Excel 2010 (KB4462230) 64-Bit Edition Security Update for Microsoft Office 2010 (KB4462223) 64-Bit Edition Security Update for Microsoft Office 2010 (KB4464520) 64-Bit Edition Update for Microsoft Outlook 2010 (KB3114559) 64-Bit Edition Update for Microsoft Visio 2010 (KB3115314) 64-Bit Edition
  7. This did work at one point on XP and was disabled... I don't remember the last version when it worked, but it was a long, long time ago... Maybe like a twenty-something version. This is something that I genuinely believe can be hacked back into Firefox on XP. SvyatPro did some nice work hacking it into Chrome on XP, and it worked well. I can send you the details if you're interested.
  8. Yes, now if only we could hack hardware layer acceleration back into Firefox XP (They removed it at some point). https://www.datafilehost.com/d/88c47980
  9. Fixed it. When I re-entered the boolean key, I put in browser.tabs.remote.force-enabled. It should be browser.tabs.remote.force-enable without the 'd' at the end.
  10. I enabled this with FF 52 in XP x64 a while back and I started fiddling with the settings mentioned in this thread. I regret it. Now it's not working anymore. I'll have to load up a ghost backup of my Firefox preferences to see what changed.
  11. I'm getting this crash when launching the 64-bit version in XP x64. Any advice please? I tried it with a new, clean profile as well. Thank you.
  12. C:\WINDOWS>dir KB3001652*/s /a Volume in drive C has no label. Volume Serial Number is D09E-A816 File Not Found C:\WINDOWS> Nothing at all. Thanks again.
  13. You mean in the veent viewer? Nope, nothing there.
