  1. I gather you're a Vista fan , right ? In that case you ought to know , there are no Vista video drivers for Intel Haswell at all , so I couldn't install them , even if I wanted to. This bug happens on Vista RTM (without DX11 support) , how would you explain it then ?
  2. One simply can't beat the Dutch quality . Made in Holland , Made with Love , Made by Dixel. P.S. Thank you for the kind words.
  3. The next stage/phase of chromium development is web.brain , to track down and eliminate survivours after the global takeover .
  4. Not this one , no . It's just yet another ugly and bloody obvious tracking/telemetry technique we shall have to disable/block.
  5. Any realtek chipset should do just fine ! If you read the ME docs , it says it has it's own mac address , right ? So how it will send any info if it's own LAN is switched off ? Of course, there are newer motherboards that have realtek onboard already installed and the address is known to intel ME , but you will have another card with another address and intel ME won't have any drivers for it ! Checkmate. P.S. I'm sorry , I don't know about 2017 motherboards , my youngest is more than 8 y.o. , as of now. But in theory it should work too ! Just try to use older PCI cards. (not PCI-e). On the other hand , PCI-e should work too . I just didn't test it myself . To answer your question , my chipset is Q87 and ME can't go online with another PCI realtek card ! Another mobo is with Q45 , the same , it's blocked.
  6. @ArcticFoxie, and if you have a 3rd party firewall , you also need to allow it's driver . But that's it.
  7. You're welcome , enjoy ! Hi , I'm sorry , I can't find your post I've seen a bit earlier (where you showed us your XP network settings) . You do not need all that bloat you enabled (like client for Microsoft , etc), you only need TCP/IPv.6 or v.4 (depends on the ISP). I remember I suggested you to disable some junk services earlier , and you liked it , perhaps you will like this too. Have a nice day.
  8. If you want , I can send you [I think I had said it a very long time ago] my version, not only it has a good dark theme , but with dark webpages (inverted) . Plays 4K on youtube [even wih XP] and has no russian language . With zero russians involved during the building process. Also , it can pretend to be an iphone without detection. Due to my laziness, it still has minor English language misspellings. I should say they are more like a weird translation made by a non-native speaker. {but not russian , lol}
  9. A free advice from an old school dude : 1- Just buy a dedicated network card [not intel] and this will prevent ME from going online . I can send you a link to a good German store (approx. 5-12 Euro). 2 - Also , you need to disable the onboard intel LAN in your BIOS. 3 - Realx and Enjoy . P.S. Not sure if this trick will still work with the modern systems. I do not have any. My "latest" is from from 2013 and the trick works on it.
  10. Well , I have a haswell laptop , it has this bug without Nvidia drivers installed , how woud you explain it then ?
  11. So we may safely assume those are win10 ported drivers . Why ? There are no 372.93 and 373.19 windows 7 drivers . I looked at some others (older ones) I received from FS and all of the numbers correspond to their windows 10 versions (!), but not win7. Like 369.09 and 39 https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/game-ready-drivers/13/236586/nvidia-driver-36909-/ BTW , looked at 373.19 again , it supports all 1000 series cards , including GTX 1050 Ti , only the lowest end GT1030 is missing.
  12. You're welcome ! I'm sorry for your 30 Euro down the drain . If only you lived nearby ... I could solder them for free . Buy an office Siemens board, where it could be disabled in BIOS , yes , there are some boards like that , for your 775 socket also . A good example would be Q35 chipset boards where Siemens folks made an option to disable it completely , even with a password protected setting , so no one could revert it back! I'm guessing could be found for 10-20 euro max in Germany.
  13. Yet another link says : "Key Features: - Latest 7th Gen. Intel Core i7 processor - Latest GeForce GTX 1050 2GB GDDR5 with desktop level performance ! And you may know that the first GTX 1050 driver is 375 , so this one is (at least on par with it or even newer) So we can assume the neighbour is right . https://drivers.softpedia.com/get/GRAPHICS-BOARD/NVIDIA/MSI-GL62M-7RD-NVIDIA-Graphics-Driver-373-19-for-Windows-10-64-bit.shtml
  14. @win32, wait a minute ... I'm stunned , it's a legit win10 driver ported to Vista !!! This driver exists out there in the wild ... but for Win10 only !!! Just search for "nvidia driver 373.19" yourself . So the Fujitsu Siemens staff ported a win10 driver !??! And look at the date added "November 2017". https://drivers.softpedia.com/get/GRAPHICS-BOARD/NVIDIA/Acer-Aspire-TC-730-NVIDIA-Graphics-Driver-373-19-for-Windows-10-64-bit.shtml
  15. Why no shared worker folder, lol ? [one of the most notorious trackers] . I mean, you clean up almost innocent folders/files and not them ??? This is no mocking , just a friendly advice. P.S. Look , even MSFN logs are there , in that folder.
  16. You still didn't answer my question. You wrote the bug has something to do with Nvidia DX11 drivers .
  17. Thanks cap., actually I was one of the first ones to notice it and wrote win32 about it, that's why I game on x86.
  18. @win32 , 373.19 is a very special case , indeed : 100% official Vista support . It still has the Vista block and it doesn't call for memcpy_s in ntoskrnl ! By the way, it is actually newer than 375 , I think . Why I think so ? Some file versions are similar and it has the telemetry . And as far as I remember, the 375 (official nvidia driver) was the first to incude it ! Pascal , no , I do not have any Pascal , also I sold my Maxwell recently . But Dereck Draker (also a Fujitsu Siemens owner) says it works with GTX980 and it is very fast. As for me , I tested it with the Fujitsu Siemens laptop (obviously), the card is the first version of GT820M , also I can confirm it works on GTX Titan (the first titan) , GTX780 , GTX780ti [the first version]. My neighbour says it works with DX9/DX10 games with his 1070 , but I can't confirm . I mean , there is no reason for him to lie to me, but I just can't go inside his house and test myself. Yet again , I can give it to you , no prob. . But only to you , since you also own a Fujitsu Siemens. EDIT : Forgot to say , there were a bit older drivers (several actually) like 372.93 , 373.06 supplied to us , and they all work with Vista . And you know 372.70 was the last one.
  19. Still work for me ! Archived drivers from the official Intel page. http://web.archive.org/web/20171008142049/https://downloadmirror.intel.com/20758/a08/GFX_Win7_32_8.15.10.2761.exe http://web.archive.org/web/20171008142245/https://downloadmirror.intel.com/20758/a08/GFX_Win7_64_8.15.10.2761.exe The forum rules say I must include the source page too : http://web.archive.org/web/20171008141948/https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/20758/Graphics-Intel-HD-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-Vista
  20. I think you won't be impressed . Even though they were quite expensive , they aren't for hard core gamers . I prefer German quality , so I always buy Fujitsu Siemens (yes, they were still made in Germany up until 2018, don't know about now). If you want the models , some of them are D3012-a1 GS3 with 16GB DDR3 , D2912-A1 GS2 16GB and I game on a haswell board Siemens Fujitsu D3221-A12 GS2 W26361-W3321-Z3-04-36 , LGA 1150 , DDR3 32GB , it supports SLI . I love their design and quality . none of the Fujitsu Siemens goods have failed me yet. (for decades). Also , got several 24 inch Fujitsu Siemens premium monitors 16:10.
  21. I have a unique driver version 373.19 x64 and x86 too (released on 1st of January 2017) , it was available only for those who paid for extended support . Only for Fujitsu Siemens notebooks' owners (some models) . So , as you may guess , I'm the owner of this marvel ! This driver works on laptops and desktops too . I'm guessing it could help you , no ? I mean , you could compare the dlls , right ? It has outstanding FPS in Vista . This driver includes the telemetry , but partially removed . I would gladly give these drivers to all of the members here , but their EULA forbids me to do so , sorry folks !!! But we know win32 has a Fujitsu-Siemens laptop , so no problem giving it to him ! Why silent about it ? I dunno , perhaps bacause he just stopped writing to me ... all of a sudden.
  22. The solution could be to use these flags : --process-per-site (force to run all facebook or any other site's tabs in one process , even if you have a gazilion of them opened) Also , some of the flags to reduce chrome's RAM and power consumption , esp. for notebooks. Here is a good compilation : --enable-low-end-device-mode --disable-highres-timer --disable-low-res-tiling --wm-window-animations-disabled --enable-rgba-4444-textures --disable-login-animations P.S. These are only to speed up the browser , the above flags do not have anything to do with privacy/security. These also reduce CPU usage , esp. at the start : --disable-background-networking --disable-preconnect
