  1. Actually it is a terrible idea, that site is (clearly) a scam. It is a generic text filled up with technobabbling that invariably delivers you he same (crappy) repair software, examples: http://threadposts.org/question/517069/EMET-5-5-fails-to-load-on-reboot-with-some-group-policy-editor-settings.html Actually being "winwiki.org": http://winwiki.org/outlook-express/ It also covers the Internet Explorer 10 zing error http://winwiki.org/internet-explorer-10-freezing/ jaclaz
  2. Just in case/FYI, a new kid on the block: http://reboot.pro/topic/21211-powerrun-v10-run-as-trustedinstaller/ jaclaz
  3. Yes, definitely and undoubtedly. Point might be if such abrasiveness is justified in the context ... jaclaz
  4. Hmmm, IMHO essentially the reason why the whole Aeroglass stuff exists is because the good MS guys decided to DEPRIVE their customers of choices, it would be - more than ironic - tragic that a tool useful to re-acquire a certain degree of freedom decides to stop supporting a part (even if minor) of its customers, effectively depriving them AGAIN of that re-acquired freedom of choices ... jaclaz
  5. A new kid on the block (command line) for Linux and Windows (and MacOsX) UNtested by me: https://github.com/BurntSushi/ripgrep jaclaz
  6. I didn't add anything, I simply quoted the example on the page I pointed you to: http://www.robvanderwoude.com/datetimentparse.php (which is something that you should have already found ) Of course you should adapt the example to your specific usage . jaclaz
  7. Well, having (such a beautiful thing as) a Skype account AND NOT using it is suspicious activity ... jaclaz
  8. ... lighting was already a pretty much useless thing, the concept has been brought to the extreme https://techcrunch.com/2016/09/20/why-why-why-headdesk/ Hard to disagree with the conclusion ... jaclaz
  9. Sure , you are parsing incorrectly the result of time. Managing dates and time in batch needs some attention, and - like always - you shouldn't invent things before having fully appreciated "previous art", go through this: http://www.robvanderwoude.com/datetime.php http://www.robvanderwoude.com/datetimentparse.php If you are using 24h clock but your local does not provide a leading 0, but rather a space: and - AGAIN - DO NOT use brackets in the names of files, before or later you will be bitten by that, if you really want to use brackets, use square ones [] or curly ones {} (which are not a "special" character in batch). jaclaz
  10. Well if you use UEFI-CSM it is not UEFI but BIOS and everything is "normal", nothing actually like a "install W2K in UEFI", just a "plain" "install W2K in BIOS (provided by UEFI CSM)". You might be interested in booting from a GPT style disk from BIOS: http://reboot.pro/topic/19516-hack-bootmgr-to-boot-windows-in-bios-to-gpt/ without using a hybrid MBR, some of the techniques discussed there might work for a RAW (or "static" VHD), but it has to be seen if suitable drivers (Firadisk or WinVblock) actually work or can be made to work in 2K (or if there is some other driver, of the "miniport" kind that can be modified to hook the grub4dos mapping), otherwise your only possibility is that of a Hybrid MBR and it has to be seen (AFAIK noone tested it) if Windows 10 will "like" that or use a MBR style disk. jaclaz
  11. If SHA1 matches it is fine. Both MD5 and SHA1 were provided as - while most hashing tools compute BOTH MD5 and SHA1 - some will only compute MD5 or only SHA1. Cannot say about the other question, I don't recall any particular "technical" version, AFAIK they are all the same. jaclaz
  12. It should be OK, BUT (you never know) check the hash(es) of the downloaded .iso: en_windows_7_professional_with_sp1_x64_dvd_u_676939.iso aka X17-59186.iso should be: MD5: ed15956fe33c13642a6d2cb2c7aa9749 SHA1: 0bcfc54019ea175b1ee51f6d2b207a3d14dd2b58 In any case, ignore the date you see, that should be a "standard" iso as it was available on Digital River (or on MSDN or Technet) with just SP1 integrated.

  13. And now ... http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=5769 http://www.myce.com/news/hp-pre-programmed-failure-date-unofficial-non-hp-ink-cartridges-printers-80457/ ... we have printer software updates that "brick" the printer if it is using non-original cartridges. jaclaz
  14. Can they? ALL of them? I don't want to put you down in any way, but you make it sound "easy" something that if not impossible will be very, very difficult. About booting Windows 2000 in EFI, it will be interesting to see how you will manage it (VHD images and/or MBR style disks do not replace BIOS calls/services ... ). I would say something like the (AFAIK never released, possibly only vapourware) Bambios would be needed: http://www.osxbook.com/book/bonus/misc/legacyboot/ But I am unaware of the existence of similar projects jaclaz
