  1. As of today (26 september 2020), the windows update for xp and vista (and maybe 2000?) is working. Grab them while you can Note: the wsusscn2.cab is still only sha2 signed
  2. I use Macrium Reflect Free for all my backup / cloning purposes on my work and at home. It's free for both comercial and personal users. Give it a try.
  3. Running a year 2000+ cpu without thermal paste is asking for trouble. That 2 or 3 dollars/euros that you save on a small cheap tube might cost you a new system. Even if the cpu doesn't thermal throttle, the huge spikes in temperature from idle to load might kill the chip. Also remember that older cpu's are NOT designed to run hot like today's cpus.
  4. Intel HD is responsible for the graphics output. It is directly connected to the internal display and it can't be disabled. On modern operating systems, when a 3D application is detected, the driver enables the discrete GPU and renders only that specific window (or fullscreen) application. The intel HD is still rendering the rest of the screen. XP doesn't support switchable graphics so this will never work. You can only disable the intel HD graphics on a laptop after doing several hardware modifications or if you have a "gaming" laptop that has that feature. (some laptops have a "gaming mode" or "performance mode" that, when enabled, bypasses the intel HD graphics at hardware level).
  5. Except IE9 on vista x64. It needs some extra procedures to install. On x86 there is no problem
  6. I can confirm. The new wsusscn2.cab doesn't have a sha1 signature. Here's the last version with sha1 signature Filename: wsusscn2_sha1.cab Date: 14 July 2020 Link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/jxklkf1p8bjifff/wsusscn2_sha1.cab/file MD5: fe805bbf07898f2ab4ebc5e8a63983a8
  7. I have that same problem if I enable windows XP automatic updates. Disable windows XP automatic updates (set to never check for updates), reboot the system and try again.
  8. All I did was download wsusscn2.cab from here http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=74689 and toggle the offline mode in WUMT.
  9. For now, wumt and wsusscn2.cab is still able to search, download and install updates. Probably is a good idea to backup wsusscn2.cab. Microsoft might remember to delete older updates at anytime from now. (Top: vista sp2 vanilla, Bottom: xp sp3 + posready)
  10. My vista system now shows 0x80072efd error every time I search for updates. I suppose vista updates should still work because of windows server 2008... Can anyone confirm that updates are also down for vista?
  11. It should be a intel 810 chipset Try this https://download.cnet.com/win9x67-zip/3000-2108_4-104242.html Supports PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_7121.DeviceDesc="Intel(R) 82810 Graphics Controller" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_7123.DeviceDesc="Intel(R) 82810-DC100 Graphics Controller" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_7125.DeviceDesc="Intel(R) 82810E Graphics Controller" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1132.DeviceDesc="Intel(R) 82815 Graphics Controller"
  12. I have to ask... how do you have so much detailed information about updates and which versions of the files are updated or not? Is it all about experience / trial and error? Because I was thinking that it would be interesting to make an index about every dll and exe version, where to get them (KB number that includes the updated file) and some kind of utility that scans your system and displays outdated files for you. Like an improved windows update.
  13. 1. Do you have 4GB or more of ram and there are 64bit drivers available? If yes install 64bit. 2. Try to download a VISTA installer that has SP2 integrated. It's faster and cleaner. 3. Yes. Windows update is bugged. Before connecting to internet you will need to install these updates: KB4019204 KB4012583 KB3205638 KB4015380. If you already have IE9 installed, you also need KB4018271. Grab them from here 4. There is no problem if you don't follow the correct order. Superseded updates will fail to install so there is no risk to install out of date components.
  14. Server 2008 also has the Extended Security Update program like Windows7. The KB numbers are public and can be downloaded through the microsoft catalog. But can't be installed on windows server 2008 without some more or less legal patching of windows update dll's. As far as i know, they run on an unpatched windows vista but, just like any other server 2008 update, might not work as intended.
