  2. POSReady 2009 updates ported to Windows XP SP3 ENU

    NTFS is a bad choice for the media with low write cycles like USB flash sticks or SD cards, because journaling means extra writes. ExFat is better for them.
  3. Today
  4. It is Firefox bug that it does not accept system settings but always tries to imitate Win10 UWP appearance. You can tweak this behaviour by userChrome.css file, but the result will never be 100% correct. Example can be found here: https://github.com/Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx
  5. Yes, I'm afraid you cannot really do anything about it. That's how my Firefox looks now, too. I am also having text rendering issues with Aero Glass enabled; not sure how to fix those - guess I should create a new thread.
  6. I have the information that NTFS is the safer file system, especially if you have heavy file I/O and big files (system backup image for example). Else You are right
  7. I don't think it's Aeroglass, I think it's the new Firefox. Firefox Quantum broker all the addons. I was using classic theme restorer and glassmyfox to make my menu/tab/etc.. bars transparent. The new firefox broke them all
  8. Taskbar bug?

    I noticed a bug in the taskbar (and in the start menu if you use StartisBack program) The 2 lines when you idle the cursor to a icon from the taskbar keeps on there even if you move the cursor to another place When I open a program (i.e Explorer) the lines dissapear but keeps appearing when I exit the program and do the aforementioned steps. Somehow I can't make a screenshot of the problem, the lines dissapear when I take a screenshot... The bug is happening in Windows 8.1 64-bits
  9. How can one Disable Indexing

    Can someone help with the following. In Windows 10 ( also in other versions ) Right Click your HDD and go to Properties. Then Un Tick ( Allow files on this drive to have contents indexed in addition to file properties ). The next step you have to agree to. Now this Takes some Time to go through and Remove the Indexing. One might Ask Why I want to do this, well Trust me it has it's Advantages. Anyway I am looking for a way to do this in the ISO. So as that When the Installation of Windows is Complete that That Item Is Already Un ticked or Not Used. That would Save a lot of Time after an Install. I normally Use Nlite for Slipstreaming my ISO's to get them Up to Date.. I can't find anything in Nlite that would Disable Indexing. I have tried Disabling Windows Search in Services, but that does not do it. Any help would be appreciated ..
  10. What classified a Newbie ?

  11. AERO GLASS 1.5.7

    Yes, the artifacts exist and many of us have complained about this serious (unresolved) residual screen artifacts issue! See the other threads... http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/177288-thank-you-big-muscle-for-new-aero-glass-build-157/?page=3

  13. Hi

    Hi, my names Raul i've been with windows since i could remember and thought i knew everything thing there was to do with computers when i learned the names of all the Hardware inside my pc, boy was i wrong. Now a days i'm running windows 10 (16299.192) i have no idea what most of the customization i've done to this point has done to my pc but i'm happy to say its stable i can turn it off and on when i want to and from forum to forum ive been picking up a little bit more of the notion "your not the only one thats had this problem, the search tool is your friend" and that's lead me here i hope i can get to learn as much as humanly possible and hope fully not become a sore in anyones eye, well anyways glad to be here and thank you in advance to anyone who replies.
  14. Extended Kernel for XP (ExtendedXP)

    Any hex editor. (My ImportPatcher probably won't work; I haven't tested it on PE32+ files.)
  15. DISM needed (x64)

    btw can i use downloaded DISM from another folder or I need to copy it over original ?
  16. You will have to download the new 7z file when a new update gets released.
  17. I notice this alot. Instead of showing the website icon, the icon will be a blank page. Is this a common problem for other people? Also another question: will NewMoon update itself or will I have to download the new 7z file when a new update is made?
  18. Explorer.exe and file sizes in Win9x

    I checked my Kernel32.dll and it shows version, that is Win98SE correct? So I can try to replace the current Kernel32.dll with the KERNEL32.DLL version 4.10.2225 from your patch and leave the KernelEx 4.5.1. in place and it might resolve the issue? Thanks, DJ
  19. I just installed a new 27" LGE monitor, with the CD's drivers, on my computer and now Amazon Prime Videos won't run. I was previously using a 19" Dell Monitor that had no problems with Amazon Videos. Now I am getting a message on Amazon that says: "Unsupported Operating System Amazon Video titles can't be watched on this device because the operating system isn't supported. For more information, please see Amazon Video system requirements." I understand XP is supposedly not supported, but it WAS before I installed the new monitor. Is the problem with the new drivers? I don't have any problems with Netflix, YouTube, etc. I tried it on both Firefox and Chrome and get the same problem with both browsers. It doesn't make sense to me. The Display settings in Control Panel show: Resolution 1920x1080; LG IPSFULL(analog) on Radeon x85 Series; 32bit highest. My system is :Dell Dimension XPS, Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.60 GHz; 144 GB HD with 52GB free; 3.00 GB RAM; MS Windows XP Media Center Edition Ver2002 SP3 Can someone help or suggest a solution, besides buying a new system? Thanks
  20. DirectPlay 9.0c & Intel PRO/1000 GT on 98SE

    OK, maybe I'll try to get one of those cards and see if it works with the DirectPlay. But still curious since the GT card is on the list here if anybody is using it and can check if they have the DirectPlay issue, If they don't, then it may be a problem with something other than the card. Best regards, DJ
  21. DISM needed (x64)

    Sweet, thanks !
  22. Help with winrar sfx command

    maybe %temp%\system\upd.exe switches (e.g. %temp%\system\upd.exe /s=1 /o=2 /u=u or whatever syntax the WinRAR commands require)? You save it as a .bat or .cmd file and add its path to HKLM/Software/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run registry key.
  23. Recently my pc updated to the Fall Creators update 1709 (16299.125) for windows, I uninstalled AeroGlass before the update but forgot to uninstall uxstyle which stopped me from changing themes until I disabled the unsigned themes service (The unsigned themes service has since dissapeared for some reason). Since the update Firefox doesn't look the same as it used to, the menu bar used to have the glass effect on it but now it doesn't, previously I was using an Aero theme from Deviantart made by sagorpirbd but they don't work for me in 1709 so I am using a theme atlas image by Xemnes that I was told about elsewhere in the forum which gives me the aero borders. Here is what Firefox used to look like (sagorpirbd), And now it looks like this (Xemnes), Anyone know how to fix this? I have tried 'GlassMyFox' but that turns too much of it to the glass effect. Cheers. Also the symbol files haven't downloaded yet so i'm not sure if that would have something to do with it or not.
  24. Format FAT32. After "convert u: /FS:NTFS"
  25. DirectPlay 9.0c & Intel PRO/1000 GT on 98SE

    I have a lot of the Pro/1000 MT PCI, and never had any problem, using the latest drivers available, on W98SE, XP and W10. I'd send you one for free, but i suspect customs would make this more expensive than buying a used one in the US...
  26. Oww, come on , those that post links to "free tools" (if any) should be welcome, it's those that post links to "non-free tools" the issue. jaclaz
  27. For external media (stick, flashcard and old good mechanical hard drive) I use exFat. Anyone who has already dealt with this file system should, like me with an external HDD, see this file system as an advantage. With various defragmentation tools I noticed that the data was never fragmented.
