  1. I would love to have these features in my XP machines!!! 3GB patch and DX11 working. I know that you are under a slow connection right now.. but I hope that you could upload these patches in the future. With each of these additions XP with last and live longer!
  2. really anxious to test the patch!! I continue using XP in all my machines and they are flying already in comparison to 7/8/8.1 Also waiting for it!!! my goal is to get the maximum performance from machines Lat one, Im the one who tries.. and I dont say "thats imposible... upgrade to 7/8" Do you have any post with the working procedure to enable DX11 on XP? I really will want to try and check if there are increase of performance in DX apps (currently using DX9c) Cheers
  3. I bet that its a problem like that. Maybe XPsp1 dont give me all the full speed of my USB2.0 ports. Im checking USB ports have a 10% reserved bandwidth.. maybe very few? I can tweak and raise this value? The machine is a Intel Quad core from 2008.. using a motherboard with Intel chipset
  4. Hi guys! I ask here because I know that there are many people using 2K and old XP versions here. Maybe someone is aware of this problem and know a way to fit it. Some AVi files freeze any video app when they are loaded from USBstick/USB-HD and also from DVD as Im reading here: Same AVI files when they are being read from the system HD works perfectly. Any clue to solve this problem? My external HDs and USB sticks are OK.. I verified that AVI files working OK in XPsp2 and upper.. I tested with NTFS and FAT32, same problem with small AVIs or bigger ones. Nothing happen with other video formats like wmv/mp4/mkv/mov/mpg... Players and apps tested: MplayerHC, potplayer, WMP. Exist any hotfix for windows2000 or XPsp1 to solve this?
  5. Its not the hardware... the crap is windows 7 and the "security". Audio is downgraded to avoid be copied. You will do right if you delete this OS from your machine and go back to XP or use other OSes
  6. Probably a feature of XP sp2.. I need to investigate Thanks for the info! Ill get in contact with him because Im not totally sure if that IE6 can be removed totally from folders. I start to think that IE6=explorer.exe
  7. If I open any folder.. and I write "www." or http.// in the address bar.. this folder converts instantly into a Iexplorer 6 window!!!!!! I always used Nlite releases without the Iexplorer/outlook/WMP and I though that IE was removed totally from my XP There is a way to remove it totally? Some dlls that I can unregister to make the folders system more light? Maybe a way to downgrade this folder-to-iexplore6 feature and use iexplorer5 or lower? maybe replacing files from 2000 into XP? (Im trying to speed up the windows GUI when browsing folders)
  8. so what is the solution? I bet that servers admins know a lot about these problems. Use alternative file commanders instead the m$ crap? go to dos/linux/osx? What Pro users/corporations do to handle this problem? All windows releases suffer of this problem? I tried 2003 and its present too. What about these new 7/2008 OSs? For me they are just consumers OSes with tons of stupid visuals and huge in resources....
  9. The thing that I really hate from M$ is that there is not info about why the delay when accessing to a huge folder. When I use: - farmanager: At least a file counter appear.. showing what amount of files are being read before display them Something like that when accessing windows folders would be nice. Probably all is related to these stupid DLLs that m$ add, like shdocvw.dll, and rest of sh*.dll, zipfldr.dll etc.... Im tempted to install win2000 and check if there is no delay as XP and beyond... The Explorer integrates less of these "fantastic features" that we really dont need and are only slowdowners
  10. wow I go to check!!! thanks for the tip pal. If its working Ill solve the problem and get rid of these file commanders edit,.- Its removed already is this nlited version I use
  11. Thanks for the reply pal ! I tested tons of these explorer replacements.Currenty these are the ones that I use (no fav one yet.. but the speed is amazing) - Nexusfile, - farmanager - necromancer navigator About your comment of winzip I was using the winrar explorer for long time too.. its also really fast when browsing
  12. @jaclaz thanks for the help. I tried with the info in your links but the problem is present yet. Seem that its a problem of XP architecture. As I was reading in other places Explorer enumerates all files to count total size and to display a progress bar. I also think that explorer read properties of each file.. not only names... so imagine the delay with a folder with tons on files. Its a pity that win98 and win2000 were faster displaying these big folders than newer OSs..
  13. I use XP,SP2, folders using always list view (no thumbs or other crap) and when I need to browse a folder with tons of files.. (>10.000 pics for example) with XP windows/explorer.. I have to wait long time.. same waiting when I select 10.000 files and I press copy/cut/paste... I have noticed that using Norton commander like apps the waiting time is really smaller, also if I have accessed to one of these big folders recently and I return to the folder, the access is done instantly (some cache somewhere?) There is any registry hack of fix for XP to get same speed when browsing/editing these big folders with the XP explorer as the other Commanders? (PLZ.- Im not a newbie so don't reply about use antivirus/malware removal. I know that this is a "Feature" of XP.. the delay is cause XP reads some extra data on each file when accessing, and I want to get rid that process. Just display the files and names)
  14. dont show icons: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics] "Shell Icon BPP"="0" "Shell Icon Size"="0" "Shell Small Icon Size"="0" kill explorer.exe and reload
  15. oh thanks for the post.. these tweaks are useful for detail view... Using the list view to display only filenames is faster. Anyway windows continue reading the files... maybe for prepare the time estimation if you select all of them and do right click or press shift+del. The command lines options are useful here: rmdir /s /q folder Removing that stupid "read of files for time estimation" for the copy/move/del animations boxes would be better for increase system performance when doing these tasks
