  1. If they have no password, NO remote access to Windows will work, neither shutdown, nor psshutdown.
  2. That link is broken. Try this for now:
  3. I can confirm that AnaDisk completely bypasses the BIOS and accesses the FDC hardware directly. So if AnaDisk "sees" the drive, your drive and cable are good, but this won't detect misaligned or worn heads. If an AnaDisk "scan" of the floppy reads all the sectors, your drive heads and floppy are good too. In Europe, we had three types of 5 1/4" double-sided drive: 360k, 720k and 1.2M.
  4. No, it isn't browsing history, for sure. Like Maxfutur, referrer (referer) is I agree The domain squatter for all the links is hitfarm. The ad server has determined that "slip" is an item of female underwear and is serving ads and multiple links according to this definition. @Mim0 Please remove the link to on your home page from the sentence: "... because the original web-site is down..." Thanks.
  5. Fedora 10 (not listed) CentOS (also not listed)
  6. The two sets of numbers are not the same thing. Windows allocates space in blocks, not in single bytes: each block is usually (but not always) 4096 bytes. On a flash drive, or external drive with FAT/FAT32 formatting it may be much bigger (4096, 8192, 16384...). So the "allocated" size for a 1-byte file will be actually 4,096 bytes or more. The first three sizes are "allocated" sizes. The second pair of sizes are the actual file sizes added together.
  7. "early turn of the century" just about sums it up for me, in this cautionary tale. Looking back, it is clear that it was a compromise solution at a time when disk prices were way above what we have now.
  8. I didn't make it clear that this applies to both Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Not sure whether you know this, because only the Windows 2000 list has been changed.
  9. Regular users will know that from time to time Microsoft serves garbage instead of windowsmedia11-kb946665-x86-intl.exe It's happening again -- I have multiple reports from all round the world that the windowsmedia11-kb946665-x86-intl.exe download is corrupt. It's not just me and it's not just one or two countries. Anyone know how to get Microsoft to fix this?
  10. I can confirm what Tomalak has said. KB956391 replaces KB953839 which replaced KB950760. To verify this you need to see the Security Advisories, not the KB articles. (Source: (Source: is KB950760. Thanks for compiling and maintaining these new lists. .
  11. That's because they are the exact same links as are listed in the KB article I posted. KB949104. Except, that by now they are beginning to propagate. Two of them now work. The third still doesn't. Come on Microsoft. Get you act together. When the KB article says: that's wishful thinking, not a version of reality that's actually recognised in Europe..
  12. There's a newer version of the Windows Update Agent (WindowsUupdateAgent30-x86.exe) announced -- version 7.2.6001.788. See KB949104 "How to obtain the latest version of the Windows Update Agent to help manage updates on a computer" Don't bother trying to download it just yet, because Microsoft have managed to give three broken links to it. --
  13. Answering just the question in your topic title, no this is not a SP3/AMD problem. That affected only HP computers and then only if an HP install or recovery disk had been used. The problem (short version) was that HP installed an Intel driver file on the CD sent out with all computers, including those with AMD processors. If you really need to know, it is not too difficult to determine when SP3 was installed, by looking in the registry and/or in WindowsUpdate.log or (simplest of all) by using Nir Sofer's WinUpdatesList (wul.exe). I would not like to see SP3 installed or uninstalled whilst both AVG and Comodo are running, but then I am naturally cautious when installing Service Packs!
  14. As these are all functions from the standard C library, have you tried asking this question in the Programming section of these forums? You might need to provide more precise information, including what language(s) are being used on the affected systems. Link: Programming (C++, Delphi, VB, etc.)
  15. I would include HFSLIP as well as nLite, especially if the option to remove Security Catalog (.CAT) files is used. At least one person in this topic is using HFSLIP. If anyone really wants to know how to fix this, you must first carry out the steps outlined by cluberti. This includes manually checking the files present. Have you checked your system32 and dllcache folders against the following list? Advpack.dll, Dxtmsft.dll, Dxtrans.dll, Extmgr.dll, Icardie.dll, Ie4uinit.exe, Ieakeng.dll, Ieaksie.dll, Ieakui.dll, Ieapfltr.dat, Ieapfltr.dll, Iedkcs32.dll, Ieframe.dll, Ieframe.dll.mui, Iernonce.dll, Iertutil.dll, Ieudinit.exe, Iexplore.exe, Inetcpl.cpl, Jsproxy.dll, Msfeeds.dll, Msfeedsbs.dll, Mshtml.dll, Mshtmled.dll, Msrating.dll, Mstime.dll, Occache.dll, Pngfilt.dll, Url.dll, Urlmon.dll, Webcheck.dll, Wininet.dll Have you also made the registry change to enable verbose logging? Have you made a copy of WindowsUpdate.log available? There is no point in speculating about the cause, if none of these steps are carried out.
