  1. I don't know if it would work, but have you tried Sandboxie? If that doesn't work, you can try to install the VMWare version you want to use, copy its program files to anywhere else, then uninstall it and install the other version you want to use.
  2. You need to boot into another OS or live CD to replace the files to be patched. But you have to extract these files from an XP CD. They will have "ex_" and "dl_" extensions, you can open them with an archive manager (7-zip for example).
  3. Glad to help. I also want to say that ShadowFox works on this browser. It is a must for me since dark theme doesn't work browser-wide. You must download Windows x32 version and place it in Application Data\Mypal68. To install, run it, select your profile folder (go to about:profiles to find out if there's more than one), press TAB to select the other options, and finally select Install. After the installation, you can delete the executable file. But you may want to backup your userChrome.css if you have applied custom modifications as explained in this thread, since it replaces it too.
  4. I simply didn't have a use for it Currently I use the browsers which works without needing the functionality of TLS 1.3 proxy. I have a second WinXP install though, without TLS 1.2 updates. I wanted to try it in that install, but I had to download it from this installation because I didn't want to mess with configuring some browser! (laziness shows up :D) And, I don't want to boot it up anymore as the reason of installation was I couldn't boot up this one after I've installed Linux (I just had to edit boot.ini, but I found it out later). I think I know the reason: the setting you shared (dom.moduleScripts.enabled false) breaks uBlock Origin. It also crashes the browser eventually (I think it's because of uBO as well). Without that setting set to false, I can use uBlock Origin without any problems (But the version is 1.42.4, while it's 1.44.4 in my main PC's browser Firefox 105). Addition: Oh wait, it's because Mypal doesn't support auto-updating of extensions and I installed it before the update. If I reinstall it, then it should work fine too. Does it have an In-Line Translator though? It's the only feature I'd use (apart from full page translate). (Oh wait I should be able to check it, right? )
  5. Thanks for the performance tweaks and SuperStop button, I'm looking forward to apply these when I get to the XP machine. For the extensions, I think uBlock Origin is a better solution (low resource usage) on low end machines. And this is the translator extension I use: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/imtranslator/ It has some features like Inline translator, which will translate the selected text and put it next to the original. Inline Translator in action (On my main PC & Firefox 105 though): Edit: Hmm, I've found something about Adblocker Ultimate:
  6. What are you planning to do by installing Windows 98 on a 2021 system? I hope you are not planning to actually use it, because for that using an era correct system would be more appropriate.
  7. I was using Psiphon on Windows XP when I need to bypass login page on some WiFi I found. Their website says it's not supported since December 2019, but you can try to use it: (Warning: DIRECT LINK) https://psiphon.s3.amazonaws.com/legacy/psiphon3-legacy.exe For Chromium 80>: If you get 360 Extreme Explorer which is available at this forum, you can download VPN extensions. The one that works without an account is called "Just vpn": https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/just-vpn/apmomfapnjopaiiidbockbmbkklcfgni Another option is to use Tor (Download the latest version available for XP, and you can use its proxy settings on other browsers). OT: I can't see AstroSkipper's custom emoticons, because PostImg is blocked here. Doesn't that suck?
  8. YouTube on Opera 12.18 (ViewTube + WMP + K-Lite Codec Pack) The video is blank, because Windows can't capture WMP playback screen if ran with hardware acceleration enabled or something IDK.
  9. Shorthorn Project has them. Go to "Ported Applications" and you'll see everything ported, including the games.
  10. If you can provide your hardware specifications, we might give you better advices about installing W11 to your current system.
  11. Hey come on "guys (since we know all of you are )"! I didn't do it to start a gender argument here, I just thought of it because his name's being used for females here (believe or not). Maybe gender info can be put under the avatar like some forums did. And when someone chose not to specify it, we can just call them "they". Isn't that for allowing TLS 1.3 on system-wide? AFAIK 360Chrome and Firefox (at least Mypal 68) supports it, so I thought of using a browser which is incapable of it. In the end Chrome 49 came up on my mind, but if you know the one that is "compatible with most sites but doesn't support TLS 1.3", let me know. By the way, my XP-system has an Intel Pentium 4 3.06 GHz "Prescott", 1.5 GB of DDR2 RAM and an ATI Radeon 9200SE.
  12. Visit https://archive.org/details/360EE_Modified_Version, click the down arrow icon next to "7Z", select 360EE_13.0.2250.0_Modified.7z, extract it, run 360chrome.exe, visit discord.com/channels/@me, log in to your account, you'll have fully working discord including voice calls.
  13. To be able to buy it, I'd have to work for 5-6 months without spending my money. Repeating, I cannot spend it, otherwise I wouldn't be able to collect the required amount. He (or she, I think Mina looks like a female name & nice 7601 addition (Windows 7 SP1 build number) by the way! But I had it first ) must take care of it well. By the way @AstroSkipper, if I didn't understand wrong, do you need a tester with a period-correct hardware? (for testing hardware load) Because I have that and would be able to test (if old Chrome still is able to render web sites properly though... ) I have a Pentium 4 though, and it even has SSE3 (but cannot say it's too powerful though... at the end it's Pentium 4 )
  14. Why you have to be so correct? That's right folks, get PERIOD-CORRECT hardware if you want to use an old OS without having any hassle! Can't install XP on Z790? Because it wasn't meant to do that! And even if you were able to do so, you'll never be able to reach the full power of your hardware, which means you'll be wasting it. I actually hate to waste my devices, I must be able to use them by utilizing their full potential. Although living with a poor family & being broke led me to do that, I'm thinking to continue to do the same even if I get better economically. Pentium 3? 98/2000/ME (if you know what you're doing ). Pentium 4? 2000/XP. Core 2 Duo? XP/Vista/7. Core 2 Quad? Vista/7. (I do find quad core on XP overkill) Core i Series? Go with 7 all the way up until you reach to the point where you can't install it. Because there will be the moment when Windows 7 will be unable to fully utilize the hardware and you'll be forced to install a newer Windows.
  15. It's great and everything working as it should be. Old games running without a requirement of "feature install", DX hook graphic mods are compatible unlike the newer versions, no high HDD usage, no excessive RAM/CPU usage, no "application recommendations" on Start menu, no inconsistent context menu design, no telemetry tweaks required, no "TPM & 8th gen CPU" requirement, no internet connection & MS Account required to set it up, no forced updates, no "This PC" (why, isn't that My PC?), no useless & slow UWP applications as Windows Photo Viewer, Windows Movie Player & Calculator replacements, No OneDrive which runs in background by default, no forcibly enabled & CPU hungry Windows Defender, no ugly flat icons, has REAL Classic Style unlike Win 8's "Aero Basic recolor", no lockscreen as if it's either a phone or a tablet, no ugly & crowded Ribbon UI on Explorer, no ugly flat color Windows icon, no requirement of using two different apps for settings, no annoying sound effects, disable UAC easier, has a Start menu which is simple and useful, doesn't remove personal files after applying updates, doesn't annoy you when installing another browser, going to recovery and other start options just requires to press F8 before boot process, much stable, no bloatware/having two different applications for one purpose, Installing language packs offline is much easier, you can access Sound Enhancements faster, doesn't "require" SSD for smooth usage, has AGP support, last Windows to support 32-bit only processors, still able to run modern browsers (Even MS had to support it through their Edge), installing .NET Framework 3.5.1 doesn't require Windows install media because it's enabled by default, Half-Life 1.1.1.0 works better than it does in XP, handling of larger image files in native programs is better than how it was in XP, although it was based on Vista it was optimized greatly so it runs better on the same old hardware, more customizable than the newer releases, Wi-Fi network menu doesn't cover a whole lot of right edge of the screen, Task Manager is much smaller than its newer counterpart while fully expanded & no collapsed view by default, and yeah, that's my experience of Windows 7 when compared to other versions of Windows.
