  1. Using XP to defrag large FAT32 sata hard drive

    Defragmentation of FAT/FAT32 drives is inherently slow, much more if they are so large. If you want (much) better performance convert the disk to NTFS (you can do it with the "convert" command).
  2. IE 11 on Windows 8

    Sorry if I caused confusion, I'm here to answer your questions. Link: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17621/internet-explorer-downloads If you select Windows 8/8.1 it says that there is no IE 11 for Windows 8, if you select Windows 7 you can download IE 11 for Windows 7. File: EIE11_EL-GR_WOL_WIN764.EXE (the greek version), version, size 57,2 MB. Here I must make a confession. Until now I haven't installed IE 11 (I preferred to stay with IE 10 for the moment). I have started the installation to check If it installs but I haven't finished it. Today I did a complete installation to check what happens. It installs alright (at least so it says), reaches the point where it says "You have installed Internet Explorer 11. You must restart your computer etc.", I restart and I still have IE 10! I haven't seen anything like that before. I submit the contents of the IE11_main.log file in Windows folder: I tried several times and this is always the output. If anybody can understand what goes on and tell me too it will be appreciated!
  3. Yes, sorry I messed it completely.
  4. As far as I know if there are spaces in a command line then you must use initials. Try "echo 64 bit system" (with the initials).
  5. IE 11 on Windows 8

    If you go to the Microsoft's page for Internet Explorer downloads you will see that there is stated that there is no IE 11 for Windows 8. This is not quite true since some time ago there was an IE 11 version for Windows 8. I have downloaded it at the time and in fact it is the IE version for Windows 7. If you go to that page and choose to download the IE 11 for Windows 7 you will get the same file which you can normally install and use on Windows 8.
  6. Latest Updates Mis-Labelled?

    If you have a look into the WinSxS folder (at least on Windows 8 that I have) you will see names beginning with "amd64-" instead of "x64-". The fact is that AMD was the first to release processors of the x64 type (the Intel Itanium - IA 64 - was released before them but it is another thing) and the "amd64" terminology remained in some extend.
  7. Are you sure that this is all? If yes, then you shouldn't... When you know that someone spies you then just don't trust him. Do what you can to prevent him from spying you but never be sure that this is all.
  8. What about KRACK?

    I don't know how many are informed about the KRACK vulnerability of WPA/WPA2. Have a look here: https://www.cnet.com/how-to/krack-affects-everyone-heres-what-to-do-now/ Microsoft October security patches for Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 are addressing this issue. For Windows 8 I used the Windows 8 embedded October security patch (which must be the same for the Windows Server 2012 one, at least they are reported to have the same size in the Microsoft Update Catalog).
  9. Peer to peer with 9x?

    Maybe out of topic but I think that the PCs' connection we are talking about is more accurately described as "ad hoc" connection.
  10. In the Adobe Flash Player era YouTube's videos were FLV ones. Does anyone know what they are now (in their original form)? I have the impression that they are MP4 but I'm not sure at all.
  11. What do you mean by "client area"?
  12. I totally agree but I still prefer Windows 8.
  13. September 2017 update rollup

    With only it's own updates Windows 8 is as stable as always. With the Windows Server 2012 updates I don't know (JodyT can talk about that).
  14. Oh, I see.. Anyway, 1.46 GB aren't so much for today's disks (personally at least I can live with it.)
  15. What are these other "components"?
