Nicolaasjan, thank you. I have already read this post, I also tried it, but I forgot the command "cd / d C: \ updates". Thanks to your notification, I have already successfully installed the IE9 update from March 2021 and I'm moving on :-) :-) :-)

Yeah, Windows 10 is so bad that I cannot describe my experience in sufficient number of words. I actually wonder what Vista haters think of Windows 10.

People called Vista bloated when Windows 10 is 1000x more bloated than any Windows version

Honestly have to agree,

but anyway, I am hoping I can find a Dell Inspiron 531s, with a AMD Sempron processor that is fast, and I will be planning on removing Vista Home Basic and install Vista Ultimate on it and use it as my daily driver on it...

Wish me luck finding it ;)

 

EDIT: I found a Dell Latitude E5420 for sale, since I am not going to get a Inspiron 531s (since they only have x86 support) + here are the specs:

CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-2520M clocked at 2.5GHz

OS: Windows 10™ Pro (I know that @Win10-Hater hates Windows 10, so I will be trying to downgrade it to Windows Vista Ultimate)

GPU: Intel® GMA HD Graphics 2000 or Intel® GMA HD Graphics 3000

HDD: 250GB

RAM: 4GB

ANOTHER EDIT: Since I couldn't afford a Dell Latitude E5420, I decided to upgrade my old PC (Toshiba Satellite L505-S5964)

Here is the processor I will be upgrading to

Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T8100 at 2.1GHz (from  Intel® Pentium™ T4200 at 2GHz)

My specs:

PC - Early 2006 MacBook Pro 15 inch (MacBookPro1,1)

Intel Core Duo T2500 2.0Ghz CPU (32 bit)
2 GB 667Mhz DDR2 RAM
100 GB Apple-branded Fujitsu HDD
ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 GPU with 256MB of VRAM
Windows Vista Ultimate SP2 x86 build 6002 (dual booted with OS X 10.6.8)

My Experience:
I first started using Vista in 2012 (Home Basic) and it was on an old Compaq Presario CQ60. At first I didn't like it since it was the Home Basic edition with a stripped-down Aero, and I wanted at least Home Premium or Ultimate, but it did run smooth. However, over the years I fell in love with the OS, mainly for the eye-candy looks and few other stuff.

9 years later, I now have the range-topping Vista Ultimate installed on my Early 2006 MacBook Pro that I got in August this year and it runs really smooth. I have fuly patched the OS till it's last update in April 2017 (I used offline updates)


I have Ultimate Extras installed on Vista, but I am not able to get DreamScene or the extra games (I only got the Ultimate Extras sound effects)  even though I see WIndows DreamScene update in the "View Installed Updates" in Control Panel :(
