  1. Mathwiz - you are correct about the Firefox https and mixit's grey boxes. Going to unsecure on FF per your suggestion lets me see what mixit had added. And I also run https everywhere. Thanks. For some reason, here on msfn.org, the page selection and last page buttons are working again. So it will be a good day today!
  2. I also see KB4049068 in the yellow shield. What is it? A 50% CyberMonday discount to upgrade to Vista?
  3. Ok OK - I'm so over-secured that the only thing still working is a manual typewriter and carbon paper. But for my OTHER machines -- "On my wife's important SOHO machine (Win 7 64-bit), we are still using Office 2003. Should any of the recent updates for Office or Compatibility be run manually on her machine?"
  4. mixit - thanks for info. Q - on the thread for XP POS, there are recent links for updating the 2007 Compatibility Pack for Office 2003 on our XP machines. Should I also run those on my wife's Win 7 64-bit machine on which we still have Office 2003 with the Compatibility Pack?
  5. den and mixit - thanks for your patience, After fussing a bit with my Firefox, I am able to see Mixit's insert link only after both (a) importing the certificate for msfn.org and (b) clicking on the lock icon in the address bar, seeing that this page is partially not secure, clicking on the > and hitting "Disable for now". Unfortunately, that last option (the button for "Disable for now") is not available on every page. On this XP machine, I have Firefix ESR 52.5.0 (32-bit). Running FF with Add-ons Disabled didn't help. Only the steps above helped. The normal icons for moving to other pages still don't work unless I right-click and hit Open in New Tab. Why so tough?
  6. Everyone - three things - 1) mixit - your posts show only a grey box where you present useful info. (Just recently at http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/171814-posready-2009-updates-ported-to-windows-xp-sp3-enu/?do=findComment&comment=1147450). What should I do to see what you posted? 2) On my wife's important SOHO machine (Win 7 64-bit), we are still using Office 2003. Should any of the recent updates for Office or Compatibility be run manually on her machine? 3) On this my favorite forum, the buttons for INSERT URL (the chain link icon) and >> (go to Last Page) don't work. Also, the buttons for any page (such as "122") don't work. Might 1) and 3) be the result of my having so much security on my Firefox browser that I now need to use a password to go to the loo? (NoScript, Disconnect, BetterPrivacy, AdBlockPlus (actually turned off for this site), CookieMonster, HTTPS Everywhere ...) Thanks.
  7. den, heinoganda, bersaglio and mcinnwwllrrll- From a link on Askwoody, I just noticed there is ALSO this: Word Viewer Description of the security update for Word Viewer: November 14, 2017 (KB4011264), which leads you to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4011264/descriptionofthesecurityupdateforwordviewernovember14-2017 . I remember that you all said we SHOULD run the "Word Viewer" updates if we have Office 2003 with the 2007 Compatibility Pack. (Correct?) So, should we manually install this update for Word Viewer: November 14, 2017 (KB4011264) ? Thanks.
  8. Den shamed made me for always being the last one into the water (although I normally prefer swimming after the sharks are well fed), so I ran the updates ASAP last night BEFORE Dave-H gave us the "all clear". Was a bumpy process - not speedy. First, Belarc shows the following, which I had first downloaded and installed manually from the links above: KB4011265 on 11/14/2017 KB4047206-IE8 on 11/15/2017 Second, "Review Your Update History" shows me the following, and these are what came in through the yellow shield after the two above: Windows XP Embedded Security Update for WES09 and POSReady 2009 (KB4047211) Wednesday, November 15, 2017 Automatic Updates Windows XP Embedded 2017-11 Security Update for Windows XP Embedded SP3 for x86-based Systems (KB4048968) Wednesday, November 15, 2017 Automatic Updates Windows XP Embedded Security Update for WES09 and POSReady 2009 (KB4048970) Wednesday, November 15, 2017 Automatic Updates Office 2007 Security Update for Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack Service Pack 3 (KB4011205) Wednesday, November 15, 2017 Automatic Updates Windows XP Embedded Security Update for WES09 and POSReady 2009 (KB4050795) Wednesday, November 15, 2017 Automatic Updates Third - weird man - Belarc also shows the following WITHOUT A DATE - THE DATE IS BLANK !!!!!!!: KB4011205 So - do I have everything, or did I leave my umbrella, my right glove and my homework in the taxi? And what about that blank date? - that's new - never before.
  9. Den - done. I couldn't do condensed links using the links icon - gave me an error message. So they are full links. Also, I find the last few days that the page links for this thread don't work. They work only if I right-click them and Open in New Tab. Maybe something about the new Firefox? By the way, plugging the AC into the parallel port worked great although it caused a loud whine. I don't even have to actually connect any more - just wave the wire in front of the machine and all of a sudden it goes really fast.
  10. OK - I'll do it, whatever it is. Just let me have the lines and I'll write them. "To speed things up, first take the AC power cord and shove it into the parallel port socket."
  11. Mcinwlw (or is it Mcilnnw?) - regarding your last note at http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/171814-posready-2009-updates-ported-to-windows-xp-sp3-enu/?do=findComment&comment=1147063 ... I'm an innocent man! Dencorso stuck my name on the very first post, and I've had to enter the Witness Protection Program. I had at least five or six out-of-shape XP owners curse at me, and one threw his floppy disk player at my window. They just don't listen when I tell them I only know how to run Windows 98. Go ahead and make any change you want - I think I'm safe now hiding out in this IBM 360 Control Console.
  12. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    At some point, we'll all hoist a final pint and go our separate ways (until we get back together to do the same thing for Win 7): https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/10/05/mozilla_extends_and_ends_firefox_support_for_windows_xp_and_vista/
  13. Tomcat and bphlpt - thanks for your responses. Tomcat - please give your favorite link to repasting instructions for a newbie. In my wife's SOHO, I have an old Dell Optiplex 780 running Win 7 Pro 64-bit, and Speccy shows that the CPU gets hot. Time to cool it down.
  14. Dumb Q - should I install http://support.microsoft.com/kb/4019276 ? I ask because my XP machine is wired to my home network, not WiFi. (But other devices are WiFi off the same modem-router with wired and WiFi.)
