  1. I am happily ignorant about what certificates are good for. I don't know and don't worry as long as I don't have any problems with the OS I am running. Latest update here was april 19, Update for WEPOS and POSReady 2009 (KB4015193)
  2. Thank you, will try tomorrow - hope and trust I can report success then.
  3. I've done his before but now I can't do it, can you tell me how to add this line to my registry: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE_SYSTEM\WPA\POSReady] I can open the registry and find my way in there, but exactly how can I add the entry in the right place? The entries to delete isn't there already.
  4. That's what I have thought as well. I don't remember why I suspected it was a ActiveX problem but I must have sen a message or something. Anyway, updating doesn't work. But right now I am very confused. I copied instructions for an edit to the Registry, and took the doc file to another machine for printing. But what I found is that none of the two Brother printers I have connected to that machine would print. I get an error message, cancel the print jobs but nothing helps. And that is a machine i can't even remember having had any problems for a very long time. I could even use the printers from this machine on the my network. I didn't ever expect I'd want to use this word again, but now I am flabbergasted! Was even tempted to use all caps there;) Is there something in the air? In the news this morning was a report on several bursts of a radium isotope in the air somewhere in the country. That's the best explanation i can find.
  5. I installed Sp4 but get no updates, probably because Active x is missing, don't know why, never had that problem before. Can't find and install active x. So I think maybe I can install XPSp3 again and then POS ready, I only need to know where to find instructions. Or maybe an edit in the registry is what is needed?
  6. After installing Sp4 and turning automatic updates on, I don't get any updates, automatically or manually. Seems that Active x is missing, is that the cause? I just can't find out how to download/install Active x, can someone tell me how to do it? (Yes, I feel silly having to ask.)
  7. I went to the download link for Slimjet and found "This web site has been reported as harmful." And left.
  8. With a little snoking I discovered that the OS is Windows 10. Even with a 46" tv, I don't find working from my sofa at 3 m distance as comfortable as I would like. I am used to having a 20" monitor on the desk right in front of me. Maybe glasses designed for just that distance might be useful. I am trying to redesign my home for my new life since my wife now is in a nursing home with Alzheimers and she won't be coming back. It is a terrible loss. she's been a wonderful companion for 60+ years. I'll see her tomorrow but all she's talking about is why can't she come home with me? Well, I hope I'll get used to the new system, and I'll have to accept that there is nothing that can be done with the slightly oversize image bitmap that extend beyond the frame. It seems finding the ideal H and V parameters is not as easy as with a proper monitor.
  9. I got me a new mini pc, Acer Aspire XC-710 with Windows 8.1. It works reasonably, but at the recommended resolution of 1920 x 1080, the image stretches a little beyond the limits of the Samsung tv screen. I don't know if there are ways of getting an exact fit of image on the screeen? But since I don't care much for Win 8.1, what would happen if I tried installing XPSp3 (or Sp4) instead? If unsuccesful, I suppose the machine will be spoiled without any means of getting it back to life again? EDIT January 19, 2017: i returned the machine, didn't like it.
  10. I am afraid I am unfamiliar with System Restore. Can you show me how?
  11. Q: What happens if you do that? A: Nothing.
  12. I see this thread as my home at MSFN - and have a problem not related to SP4: I have done it before and have managed to fix it but this time I didn't have any luck with it. I managed to make the taskbar at the bottom of the screen double height, and I can't get it back to normal. It is not locked. How can I get it back to normal again?
  13. SP4 has been working quite fine for a long time but has developed some problems lately. 1. Spooler Subsystem error msg on startup, but ok at restart. 2. Updates been ok, but now the same 5 updates are being offered for installation again each time I shut down the machine. From July 14 ... July 17: KB3123055 ... KB3135986 I can chose not to download and install, or downlad without automatic installation. I now have turned auto updates off. I might perhaps be better of without SP4, using POS updates only?
