  1. Yup! They appear to be failures, even with older versions. Folders in older version would be created but empty (ADK_4 and sub-folders). Not sure if useful, but I got them while the still existed. Side: The latest v20.10 (32-bit) doesn't run on XP/2003 (32-bit) for some reason. (Note that I "jumped" to the end of the topic, so...) Guess I'll try them on a 64-bit Win7/Win10 (I have them loaded on another PC). Not worth loading XP/2003 x64 right now. Busy trying to Reconstruct WinRE.WIM on a friend's Dell that a "helper" upgraded to Win10 and destroyed it (deleted when I had her "uninstall/back out). She's mad at the "helper" now. Won't let anyone but me work with it. (Addendum Side: Last person a few years ago "boogered" her profile - Original Name is using "Test" user-id - probably tried to "fix" using the XP-but-wrong-way method of make-new and copy-to...)
  2. FWIW, I got all the XP-X64 EXE files and double-checked that no more updates just after/around MS clobbered support. Done in a HyperVM (whatever) on one my other PC's (Srv2k8R2). Maybe an upload to Web Archive is in order?
  3. @xpclient Yes, those, as well as these: I may already have O2K2/O2K3 (not really sure) but I'm still using O2K7 and a very good friend of mine has Off2010 and plans on reloading their Dell Win7 from Recovery Partition. Where have you been uploading to (must have missed that)? A beer is in order as soon as you get it done.
  4. @jaclaz @Tripredacus Holy squat! Someone doesn't like Mr. Dvorak. Click on that medium link. "410: Account under investigation or was found in violation of medium rules." Sounds a lot like Twitter: "Shut up about that."/"How DARE you try to correct as blue check person! Suspended!" <crazy-googlie-eye-emoticon> (Side note: Yep! His account is suspended - the link is in the oldest Wayback...) BTW, Still kicking. Glad to see some of you still around.
  5. "Piece of <insert derogatory expletive here>" And yes, apparently back up again. In reference to said "person" I railed him for (1) His SHA is entirely different, so I'm assuming he/she/it (PC correctness on twitter - mustn't mis-gender) either (1a) downloaded a DIFFERENT version or (1b) altered it or (1x) downloaded with some POS software. (2) I uploaded mine to VirusTotal, got "hits" then realized OMG-AUTOIT and uploaded JUST an AutoIT from extract and SAME RESULT, proceeded to inform User that he's not too bright and should resign from TrojanHunter Club. End result - Fork-em for a cruddy reporting of a respected website "issuing trojans/malware" (not true at all) and Reboot is apparently back up (for now) and Steve-o is once more a happy (and somewhat smug -> purported TrojanHunters) camper. Back to fixing a dear old (from 50 years ago) gal's PC that her Son-In-Law was kind enough to "upgrade" to Win10 before I had a chance to back it up (hence stomping on Dell's WinRE.wim in Recovery Partition so I have to "recreate" it). Note: More to it than than but I think I have a handle on it (needs tested) - idea was to be able to Factory Restore if ever sell it (It's a bad-a$$ PC). HELLO, OFF-TOPIC!!!! L8tr, y'all and STAY SAFE FROM DA GLOBAL BUG!
  6. Just gonna bump this. Maybe it's just me? Reboot seems to be inaccessible (again?). ======= tracert reboot.pro / Tracing route to reboot.pro [] ======= ("reboot.pro" via one lookup) Source: whois.ripe.net IP Address: % This is the RIPE Database query service. % The objects are in RPSL format. % % The RIPE Database is subject to Terms and Conditions. % See http://www.ripe.net/db/support/db-terms-conditions.pdf %ERROR:201: access denied for % % Sorry, access from your host has been permanently % denied because of a repeated excessive querying. % For more information, see % http://www.ripe.net/data-tools/db/faq/faq-db/why-did-you-receive-the-error-201-access-denied % This query was served by the RIPE Database Query Service version 1.96 (WAGYU) =========== Mind you, Arin isn't blocking. It can't seem to find which lookup website I had used (now), but it seemed to indicate registration was good until September (?) of 2021. Is it just down or was it hacked or blocked or what? https://www.abuseipdb.com/whois/ https://ipinfo.io/ === LOL! Malware (someone reported it?) === https://urlhaus.abuse.ch/host/reboot.pro/ HOLY CRAP! It's a file made by WIMB!!!! This "spyware hunter" is a POS on Twitter...
  7. Welp, this explains why IE11 isn't included in your WUD UL. If anyone still wants it, it still exists and there's one last Cumulative Update on the Catalog. Original + Cumulative (No direct links, Steven...): https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/18520/download-internet-explorer-11-offline-installer https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4534251 WTH IS THIS THINGY? (v11.0.0.4 / 10/21/2019) "NOW WITH BING AND MSN" lol! x64: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=41628 x86: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40907 Welp#2: Went back and read some more of the thread. YEESH! What a wet bag of worms! (and that I replicated some stuff already in the topic).
  8. @sdfox7 - I assume that this method still works for Flash v32.0.0.192? http://sdfox7.com/chromexp2.htm
  9. Mostly private matters - hoping I (and especially my wife) will still be around for my 50th Hi-School Alumni party in August. "Still Alive And Well" - J. Winter
  10. Semi On-Topic - there's another place to clear some Cache crap in "Options"->"Advanced"-"Cached Web Content" (NOTE! It's in a DIFFERENT folder). Lots of space save by using both those "clear" functions ("Cached" using 250mb!). Best to be out of ALL tabs before you do that. and BEWARE that I had a boogered "Cached" and had to do a chkdsk and manually delete. Be ALSO aware that the whole "different" folder is a "caching folder" (for want of a better term) that you can literally delete and Firfox re-creates it from scratch.
  11. re: Difference between Shockwave and Flash Player: https://helpx.adobe.com/shockwave/kb/shockwave-player-faq.html#main_3 Basically, you're "kind of" right about Shockwave and "games", although my grandkids (several years ago) played games on PBS Kids website that were apparently Flash (?) games. On spare XP computers, mind you (not on MY computer, kids!)... And the result was the same re: Macromedia folder contents, but BOTH entries exist in Add/Remove, so I can't really definitively vouch for existence of both (busy cleaning up junkware).
  12. You have GOT to be kidding me! Doing a Google Search yielded a topic (for newer FireFox) that said "Clear Cache", so I cleared EVERYTHING "History->Clear Recent" (didn't even restart, still in SafeMode), and it works now! WOW! BTW, I replied to myself (instead of edit) to indicate the "fix". I'll soon see if it's still borked after I do a bit of web browsing and report back on this comment/post. "I see weird people and events, no ghosts yet. Scary!"
  13. I have a real oddball that may even affect Windows XP. When attempting to download (e.g.) Windows2000 SP4 EXE, I get a real nasty message that it can't read the source. I have installed all of the latest (as indicated on MSFN) Extensions/AddOns and have no "blocked" in RED on the Options page. It appears to have begun yesterday after fighting with installing "unsupported" Java (v191 "overlay" on v151, maybe I should have used v181?), the latest Flash and Shockwave, and NoScript. I haven't tried disabling NoScript ( which was SUPPOSED to work (but maybe I'm wrong). AdBlockPlus is also installed but shouldn't affect Wayback. POTENTIALLY "Google Redirect Fix 2.1.10" may have something to do with it, but I don't see how for that either. A side note of another (to make the RED disappear) removal - "NET\Framework\v3.5\Windows Presentation Foundation\DotNetAssistantExtension" contents (also should have nothing to do with). Screen Capture of the specific problem attached. (Guess I've lost my Geek on this one...) Note that the specific error was SUPPOSED to have been fixed long ago in Firefox. ALSO note that it WORKS in IE8. This kind of makes me suspect Firefox is the culprit (also part of the "Get Up-To-Date" installs the past several days). I'd appreciate it if some kind sole would confirm/deny this? If need be, I'll indicate ALL AddOns/Extensions. ==== EDIT ==== Nope, STILL doesn't work with FireFox in Safe Mode. This didn't start happening until after Upgrade FF and attempt to get something via WebArchive. I DID have FF v46.0.1 (AFAICR) and had no problems except for the AddOns/Extensions (etc) not updating. @sdfox7 @dencorso - if you notice this, try it. Something is amiss (or I've lost my mind DURRR).
  14. JEEZ, I hate to bump old topics, BUT... Reading, @sdfox7 said in one thread: Chrome v34.0.1847.37 was the last Non-SSE2, and in THIS one it's said the v34.0.1847.137 is the last. It's not on his webpage (see previous comments) from the self-extractor that was sent. I DID find the full "137" installer on FilePuma. Is this the same as was provided? I MAY have a use for it on my old P-III Dual-CPU NetServer, otherwise, I guess I'll be using the v34.0.1847.0 one. Thanks for your patience for bumping an old thread. I'm loathe to dump that old beast (dual-550 + 1g RAM, noted in another OLD thread). It has an older Firefox (unsure what version I installed) on it and it DID work for my grandkids playing online games (has XP on it). /EndBump
  15. My sincerest apologies for being scarce and not making a donation. Personal matters have drained me both emotionally and financially. My thanks to all that have contributed to keeping MSFN alive and well. Live Long And Prosper, Y'all. <Hillbilly Spock>
