  1. AOL users: you may be aware that AOL recently discontinued free access with the traditional AOL client. The only way to access mail for free is to access it using a web browser and going to aol.com. To continue using the client, you must upgrade to AOL Desktop Gold and pay a low monthly fee. However, AOL has now released AOL Shield (free) which is a "optimized browser for users on dial-up internet connections and/or older operating systems. AOL Shield is optimized for older operating systems like Windows XP and Windows Vista. It also has features that enable it to run on computers with a dial-up internet connection." For more information or to download, see this page: AOL Shield

  5. Original January 4, 2019 post title was "Update IE8 to TLS1.2 for (nearly) Last Skype 7.36.0.150 on Windows XP". Update title changed May 1, 2019. Readers wanting Skype-specific info should page or find down to the ORIGINAL INTRODUCTION. UPDATE INTRODUCTION: This compiled procedure, Instructions To Add TLS1.2 To Windows XP OS & IE8, turns out to be useful for non-Skype purposes, and may now be obsolete for the intended purpose of running Windows XP Skype 7.36.0.150 (see posts below). For convenience of other readers, I've reorganized the original post so that the procedure steps now start near the top. I've also edited OS registry variations in steps 9A and 9B, made a change in step 11, and added a 12th procedure step, each helpfully noted by posters below. ----------------------------------------------------------------- INSTRUCTIONS TO ADD TLS1.2 TO WINDOWS XP OS & IE8 (Compiled from MSFN source posts credited) ----------------------------------------------------------------- 1) If not already updated, download and install Microsoft's updated Windows Installer 4.5 (KB942288-v3) from https://download.microsoft.com/download/2/6/1/261fca42-22c0-4f91-9451-0e0f2e08356d/WindowsXP-KB942288-v3-x86.exe 2) Set a System Restore point marked, say, "Spoof POSReady ID registry edit" 3) Put the following POSReady spoof text (omit the hyphen lines) in POSReady.txt, rename to POSReady.reg, right-click Merge, Yes. ---------- Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\WPA\PosReady] "Installed"=dword:00000001 [<-- BLANK LINE] [<-- BLANK LINE] ---------- 4) Navigate to: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/search.aspx?q=kb4019276 5) Find down to POSReady, Windows XP Embedded versions of KB4019276 Click Download button for that version. Click English in the opening language window (or other language). 6) Navigate to: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/search.aspx?q=KB4230450 7) Find down to POSReady, Windows XP Embedded versions of KB4230450: Click Download button for that version. Click English in the opening language window (or other language). 8) For each KB file: click, accept install, reboot. (Both create restore points just in case.) 9) Edit the following Windows XP registry entries in 9A and 9B to read as shown. If you aren't sure how, look up Regedit 5 editor instructions. For convenient automatic registry edit-merge, these lines may be pasted into Notepad text files, renamed .reg ,then just click the file after closing it (expect no response). (But to be careful, I edited them manually with Regedit 5.) 9A) After navigating the chain of registry keys, click the key TLS1.1, in the right panel, right-click "OSVersion", click Modify, enter the Value data already shown (not sure why), click OK. (I had to change "3.6.1.0.0" to "3.5.1.0.0" shown in obvious German in the source.) (EDIT: Other posters report below that if this key is absent, this step may be safely skipped.) ---------- [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\AdvancedOptions\CRYPTO\TLS1.1] "OSVersion"="3.5.1.0.0" ---------- 9B) Next click the key TLS1.2, in the right panel, right-click "OSVersion", click Modify, enter the Value data shown above, click OK. (Likewise I had to change "3.6.1.0.0" to "3.5.1.0.0") (EDIT: Likewise, if missing, skip this step.) ---------- [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\AdvancedOptions\CRYPTO\TLS1.2] "OSVersion"="3.5.1.0.0" ---------- 10) Click Start, hover Control Panel, click Internet Options, Advanced tab, pull the thumb bar all the way down. You should see new checkbox options for "Use TLS 1.1", "Use TLS 1.2". (KB4230450 will install these checkboxes, but they won't work without KB4019276.) 11) Check "Use TLS 1.2". Leave unchecked "Use TLS 1.1" (already obsoleted by TLS 1.2; and, TLS 1.3 was approved in 2018). (EDIT:) Leave checked "Use TLS 1.0". Click OK. The TLS 1.0's AES component is not insecure. TLS 1.0 may best remain checked for legacy websites needing AES or 3DES. (See explainers in posts below.) 12) (EDIT:) The following registry edits disable TLS 1.0's insecure cipher suites: DES, RC2, RC4, plus the insecure MD5 cipher hash. 3DES may be disabled optionally, but legacy websites without AES may need 3DES (Triple DES). TLS 1.0's secure cipher suite AES remains enabled, unchanged (no edit shown). Edit the following registry entries to read as shown: ---------- [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Ciphers\DES 56/56] "Enabled"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Ciphers\RC2 128/128] "Enabled"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Ciphers\RC2 40/128] "Enabled"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Ciphers\RC2 56/128] "Enabled"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Ciphers\RC4 128/128] "Enabled"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Ciphers\RC4 40/128] "Enabled"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Ciphers\RC4 56/128] "Enabled"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Hashes\MD5] "Enabled"=dword:00000000 ---------- You may need Triple DES (3DES) at websites which don't (yet) support AES. Here is the optional edit (not yet recommended) to disable 3DES (0's mean Not "Enabled", equals Disabled): ---------- [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Ciphers\Triple DES 168/168] "Enabled"=dword:00000000 ---------- The above registry edits (manual for transparency) are included in a larger set of one-click automatic edits in a download .reg file posted below.

(While 7.41.x.x may be actual "last" for WinXP, it may or not nag you to "update", requiring a separate fix or version downgrade. My version 7.36 didn't get the nag, and 7.40 was also reported to lack the nag when it mattered before April 12.) I've compiled pieces of the fix puzzle I found elsewhere on MSFN, because the complete fix isn't obvious to WinXP Skypers searching from elsewhere on the web. The fix isn't that difficult, but the usual warnings that novices should back up the registry before editing it, do apply. The download KB file installs, and each set their own restore points. I hope just setting a Restore point before starting the edit will be adequate. I haven't used my desktop PC WinXP-SP3 Skype (mostly chat) for months while the power supply was down. Yesterday I fixed it. To my surprise, Skype errored with "Sorry, we couldn't connect to Skype. Please check your Internet connection and try again." But the internet was ok. Many Skypers aren't techies, and most of the posted complaints about "Sorry, we couldn't connect to Skype", don't have a fix other than get a new OS like Win7, or use web Skype. For good reasons, we don't want to give up WinXP, at least as a backup to Win7 (or even Win8.1 for my keytablet). I've thoroughly tested Win10, but I'm not interested in that control-freak bugfest. One elsewhere-posted answer with no fix, helpfully explained that Skype had switched to using the more secure https encryption protocol TLS1.2. Skype for WinXP uses the SSL/TLS protocols built into Internet Explorer 8, which is the last Internet Explorer version for WinXP. IE8 normally has a maximum version of TLS1.0. Skype servers apparently turned off insecure TLS 1.0 sometime after I had to quit using this Skype last year (2018). So the fix is to add TLS1.2 to IE8, and it did work for me. At MSFN I found the bitter-end holdouts on WinXP, same website where I found the Win98 bitter-enders. (Btw, one poster at MSFN said the famous Windows OS bitter-ender AXCEL216 aka MDGx aka George, is still alive!). One or more MSFN gurus noticed that Microsoft is still updating Windows XP embedded OS for computerized cash registers (etc.), a WinXP variant known as "POSReady" (POS= Point Of Sale). They figured out how to spoof WinXP-SP3's identity, so that it will pose as, and accept POSReady updates, including those which to add TLS1.2 to IE8. (If still relevant to Skype readers, do the procedure above. Even if another post-April 12 Skype for XP fix is found, this procedure will likely be needed as well.) When I did this procedure (in January of 2019), the "we couldn't connect to Skype" error went away. However, a new sub-login dialog appeared that only allows a Microsoft school or business account. This dialog went away after I clicked on an existing chat account. (See new Skype 7 login obsolescence described in posts below, first reported elsewhere as of about April 12, 2019.) I hope this helps. Al
  6. Since there's not much info out there on the web unless you spend a considerable amount of time googling, I thought i'd post the solution so more people can find it quickly. Update: The latest problem with activation affects both XP and Vista however it’s relatively easy to fix, you need to update your root Certificates (The same issue causes problems browsing the net too) I have created a Batch script that will download and update the Root Certificates accordingly but it will be a couple of days before I can post it. Below is the Original Fix I posted Turns out it's exceedingly easy to restore Windows XP Online Activation Open the Start Menu Right Click on Internet and choose "Internet Properties" Goto the Advanced Tab Scroll down near the bottom to the Security Section and uncheck both: "Check for publisher's certificate revocation" "Check for server certificate revocation" Now you can activate online as normal or use the "Windows XP Product Key Change Tool" I would reccomend re-enabling both options afterwards even if you dont use Internet Exploder (which you REALLY REALLY should not be) If you’re still having problems: I highly recommend downloading the “Windows XP Product Key Change Tool” it’s an official Microsoft tool and you should be able to download it from majorgeeks worked in every other instance for me where the built in one didn’t. (And in think it also lets you use different type of keys from the media the OS was installed from, such as Retail on OEM and such) Also make sure your clock is set correctly (A common source of TLS problems)
  7. Why Windows Vista isn't bad Windows Vista: it's the OS everyone loves to hate. Still today, several years later, I see it being criticized for having high system requirements and being a memory hog. But is it really that bad? I think not. In this article I am going to explain why I believe Windows Vista deserves more respect and really isn't bad, and hopefully convince some of you XP and Windows 7 fans that Vista is a very viable OS, especially by today's standards. So let's begin. Windows Vista, when released, introduced a completely different and totally new kernel and driver model than that of its predecessor, Windows XP. Introducing a new kernel caused compatibility issues with legacy applications, and an entire new driver model caused a number of driver compatibility problems. I'll admit, Windows Vista truly wasn't ready when it was released in its RTM version, as it still caused heavy disk I/O which drastically decreased the life of hard drives and degraded performance. There were also issues with OEMs, that hadn't yet released drivers for Vista or released drivers that didn't work well with the new driver model, and OEMs forced Vista onto hardware that barely met the system requirements for Windows Vista. They also stuffed it full of OEM bloatware which caused it to be even slower for users. However, in this article I'm going to explain how those problems were fixed and are now non-existent in Windows Vista. The Rise of Vista: Service Pack 1 released In 2008 with the release of Vista SP1, tons of issues were resolved, and speed was greatly improved. Some improvements made in Service Pack 1 were: Faster copy times, heavy disk activity was toned down dramatically, and tons of apps and drivers had finally caught up with Vista, but there were still some issues. Vista, even with SP1, was still lackluster and needed some work, to hopefully get people off Windows XP for good. There was still the slow boot up and shut down time, as well as a few instability issues. But soon, Microsoft was going to fix that in its next Service Pack for Windows Vista. Vista at its peak: Service Pack 2 released With the release of Service Pack 2 in April 2009, Vista was finally what I would call ready, and Microsoft had managed to finally advance the OS far ahead of Windows XP. Improvements in Service Pack 2 were: even faster file copy times, boot up time improved dramatically, stability greatly improved, memory (RAM) usage was toned down, UAC was refined to be less annoying (while keeping the OS secure), and support for newer types of hardware was added, including support for blue-ray discs. At this stage, Windows Vista was, in my opinion, a worthy successor to Windows XP, and was almost perfect. However, the hate still raged on in most people's minds. Why people still hate Windows Vista Vista is still hated by the majority today, and I believe I know why. Early adopters that tried Vista didn't give it a second chance. They tried it once, either hated it or loved it, and never looked back at it again. So they just hopped back to the trusty old Windows XP and waited for the next version of Windows to arrive, that being Windows 7. Despite service packs improving the OS, people still didn't give Vista another chance, and forever concluded in their minds that it was a failure. I've also had people tell me that they hate Vista because they "heard bad things about it". And a lot of people just jumped on the Vista hating bandwagon without even trying it, which in my opinion, isn't a smart thing to do. Why Windows Vista deserves more respect Windows Vista introduced many new technologies that are critical to Windows 7's existence. Some people may not realize this, but Windows Vista was critical to Windows 7's success. Had Windows 7 in its form today been released instead of Vista, Windows 7 would've received criticism for the same reasons as Windows Vista. It also had high system requirements (identical to Windows Vista's in fact) compared with XP, and it retained a similar kernel (only slightly refined from Vista) and an almost identical driver model introduced by Windows Vista, which makes it a complete departure from Windows XP as well. Compatibility issues would've existed, and Windows 7 would've been installed on underpowered hardware, just as Vista was, and users would've complained about slowness, and jumped back to XP, just as they did with Vista; which is why I believe Vista deserves more respect. Why Windows Vista is much better than Windows XP Some people might have trouble swallowing this, but Windows Vista truly is a large step up from Windows XP, in many ways. One large criticism of Windows XP was security, and despite Microsoft improving the security by releasing Service Pack 2 for XP in 2004, Vista really abolished that problem at a much higher level. With a stronger Windows Firewall and User Account Control that was refined over time to be less annoying with updates, Windows Vista is much more secure than Windows XP. Windows Vista is also better optimized for modern hardware, and takes better advantage of multi-core processors than Windows XP, and has a full-fledged 64 bit version. XP had a 64 bit version, but it was based on its server counterpart, Windows Server 2003, which caused compatibility issues and was not widely adopted. Windows Vista also has more secure networking, and with Service Pack 1, tests showed Windows Vista outperformed Windows XP in the file copying area, just as Microsoft had claimed to improve with the update. Windows Vista also introduced DirectX 10, which delivered much richer gaming graphics and better performance than DirectX 9.0c which was the last version available for Windows XP. Windows Vista also introduced support for USB 3.0, which was much faster and more efficient than USB 2.0 that was available on Windows XP. Although, most USB 3.0 devices will still work—in a technical sense—with Windows XP because they’re backward-compatible. However, they will fall back to USB 2.0 compatibility and transfer data at about one-tenth of the potential speed of USB 3.0. Also, Windows Vista introduced a much faster, more efficient, and more convenient search. Open any explorer window or open the start menu in Vista, and there's most likely search present there. In Windows XP, all you have out of the box is the classic search from previous versions of Windows. And although it works, it's still not as convenient or as efficient as it is in Windows Vista, because you only have it all in one place, rather than throughout the system like in Windows Vista. Although it really wasn't necessary, Windows Vista introduced a very elegant desktop composition engine known as Windows Aero, which looked, to me anyways, much more appealing than the Luna interface that was in Windows XP. And it was refined to be less resource intensive with Service Pack 2. Windows Vista: a viable choice for many, even today Windows Vista was truly ahead of its time, and by today's standards, it still pretty much meets everything most people would want from an operating system. It's very similar to Windows 7. It works well on modern hardware, as it's optimized for multi-core processors, and works with most of the latest third party software. And it also supports 64 bit computing very well, just as well as Windows 7 in fact. And much better than Windows XP did. I'm not saying we should all just switch to Windows Vista, but if you're still using Windows XP, upgrading to Vista with Service Pack 2 wouldn't at all be a bad idea if your hardware can handle it. Conclusion Well I'll leave you with this, and I hope I helped some of you realize why Windows Vista was really a misunderstood operating system. Today, Windows Vista is much better than it was in its infancy, and is no longer "crap" like people have claimed that it is. As long as you run it on compatible hardware and keep it up to date, it will run just fine. In fact, I use Vista (or server 2008 as a workstation rather, the same as vista pretty much) as my main OS, and it runs just fine. And I don't understand that if someone that likes Windows 7 tried Vista today with Service Pack 2 installed on modern hardware, how they could still hate it- but that's just my take on this. If you know why please explain. Thanks very much for reading! -2008WindowsVista

  9. (Updated July 2019) I am posting this message as an alternative to the (not MS Official) WinXP SP4 Update Package. HERE, I kept having stability problems (PC Crashes) after installing the SP4 Package. Which proves NOTHING about whether to use the SP4 Package. MANY others have used the SP4 Package with NO PROBLEM and get a good result. But the SP4 Package is NOT a 'Microsoft Official' Package either. WinXP_SP3_Updates_Hotfix_List.txt <-- Download (View) this FILE, attached at bottom of THIS MESSAGE here. https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com Download individually KB Updates (Hotfixes) from above (Official Microsoft) URL As far as SEARCHING for the 'KB UPDATES' -- this seems to have gotten WORSE than it was. WindowsXP-KB892130-ENU-x86.exe <-- I could NOT get this to LIST at the 'MS Catalog KB UPDATES' site. But GOOGLE Search = "Windows XP KB892130" did display a URL download (MS Official site). http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com <-- Search = "Windows XP" It lists categories like "Critical Updates" , "Updates" , "Service Packs" , etc. Mostly, using say Search = "KB946648" will list the item for download -- but NOT always. Best of luck on the Searching, you may be better at it than me. So first, install (re-install) the WinXP SP3 (Service Package 3). Hopefully then, WinXP is rebooting and stable for you. Then you can MANUALLY install the UPDATES to WinXP SP3 (Hotfixes) via using the FILE LIST (attached here). Download and Install the KB FILES (*.EXE) from the 'MS UPDATE CATALOG' website. So, you just 'grind through' installing the LONG list of KB UPDATES for WinXP in a 'one at a time' basis. This is TIME CONSUMING but simple, and you can eventually get it done. http://icrontic.com/article/repair_windows_xp Finally, IF you continue to have PROBLEMS with WinXP, consider to use the SYSTEM REPAIR feature via RECOVERY CONSOLE of WinXP (using the official WinXP Install CD, boot up with that). THAT should definitely get you back to a STABLE WinXP situation. This should give you a CLEAN REGISTRY type situation with WinXP. THEN, you can install SP3 (Service Package 3). And THEN, you can install the KB UPDATES as described. Hopefully, you get most all of the 'critical' KB UPDATES for WinXP SP3 installed properly. This is more a 'minimum reasonable' suggestion for WinXP SP3 and KB UPDATES. IF the WinXP SP4 Package works for you, that might well be a better choice. WinXP OS is NOT supported officially anymore. However, there are BROWSERS that support WinXP. (NEW MOON Browser = 'Pale Moon' fork by @roytam1) is updated to work with websites via WinXP.

  14. Hello, Does anyone on MSFN still use Windows XP as main OS? If yes, did you experience any problems with hacks after the EOL of Windows XP? And do you still use Internet Explorer 8?
  15. I use windows XP pro SP2 on my PC, my mac and my netbook, so I want all of you to tell me is it obsolete with SP2 and should I get SP3.
  16. After like 3min of connecting from my other Windows system to my XP MCE machine via RDP, it BSODs with error codes c0000005 (0x77cd252b 0x0052f36c) and states that the Windows Subsystem Process (smss.exe) was closed unexpectedly. Does anyone know what's causing this and how do I prevent this from happening again? It used to run via RDP flawlessly until now...
  17. I don't know if you saw this, but there are two new updates for XP, for XML Core services and GDI: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40919 https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=41715
  18. I have an Acer Aspire 5920 laptop from 2007 which came preinstalled with Windows Vista, and I decided to wipe the hard drive and downgrade to Windows XP today. As we all know, Windows XP lacks builtin SATA drivers, so it's impossible for the installer to detect SATA hard disks without either slipstreaming the drivers or loading a driver from an obsolete floppy drive. The BIOS in my computer allows me to set the hard disk to legacy IDE mode, so that it appears to the software as a PATA drive. I didn't want to go through the trouble of slipstreaming the drivers and burning another CD, so I set the hard drive to legacy IDE mode in the BIOS, and installed XP that way. Now I want the extra speed boost that SATA offers, but I'm having trouble installing the driver. I downloaded the Windows XP SATA AHCI Driver from Acer's website (link), but it refuses to install, giving me this error. Im puzzled, because Windows XP Home Edition is listed as a supported operating system, and I downloaded the driver from the Windows XP section of Acers driver list for this laptop.
  19. I want to make an unattended Windows XP ISO, and I want to disable 'Show In Groups' in My Computer, and set it to classic view. I looked through nLite to see Explorer/My Computer options, but there was no checkbox for disabling 'Show in Groups'. My question is: Is there a registry script that disables 'Show In Groups' in My Computer?
  20. Hello, I have the files from an original retail Windows XP SP3 install disc that I would like to process with nLite 1.4.9.3, with the goal of integrating all updates to date (including Internet Explorer 8 and latest Windows Media Player) followed by removing some componenets that I don't want. I started by using the RyanVM Integrator 1.6.1b2.1 to include the OnePiece Windows XP Post-SP3 UpdatePack v1.0.7 followed by its "OnePiece Remove AddOn"s to get rid of a few items like Windows Search. I then used nLite to remove more components and did additional tweaks, hoping in the end to put all that into an ISO. However, during the last stage of using nLite - when it says "Finalizing" after compressing cabinets - it crashes (please see attached screenshot). At first I thought maybe it is because the install files I fed nLite was processed by RyanVM Integrator 1.6.1b2.1, so I retried the whole process on unprocessed/vanilla Windows XP SP3 files, but nLite crashes at the same stage. I also tried to run nLite in an existing Windows XP SP3 virtual machine, and it still crashes at the same point. What am I doing wrong? Here is the nLite INI file with all my settings: http://pastebin.com/YQ1p4tqJ
  21. Hello I have a question - Installation of Windows XP is possible on the Lenovo Y510P? (http://www.notebookreview.com/notebookreview/lenovo-ideapad-y510p-review/specs/) I've seen KernelEx project (now is suspended, I know), that's why I want to try with XP. Last Windows which I like is Windows Vista, but there is a problem with " Interactive Logon Process Initialization has failed" and sometimes BSODs. If yes - someone can give a drivers install method? (there are drivers just for Vista) If someone haves questions - write. I apologise for my English. Thanks for help
