  1. That WUA app is v7.6.7600.320 for Win7 SP1, dencorso - that same package also includes v7.6.7600.256 for WinXP SP3, Vista SP2 & Win7 RTM/SP0 as I checked myself. That did nothing to solve the WU problem and is kinda outdated; but this newly released KB3161608 Update Rollup of June 2016 is what actually fixed the problem - KB3161608 updates the Windows Update Agent app to v7.6.7601.23453 and is now the latest version for Win7 SP1 Quote from Microsoft support KB article 3161647 - the KB3161647 fix is included in KB3161608: . Took Microsoft several months to finally figure out and resolve the WU problem on Win7.
  2. There's a recent fix to the Windows Update problem for Windows 7 - install the KB3161608 June 2016 Update Rollup for Win7 SP1, which includes an updated Windows Update Client fix from KB3161647 (released June 21). Although KB3161647 is not offered as an individual patch, it's part of the KB3161608 update rollup. I recently installed the KB3161608 update rollup onto all my Win7 PCs, and after a reboot, Windows Update displays a list of available updates after 5 to 10 minutes of searching for updates instead of searching for a few hours w/out the KB3161608 update installed.
  3. I did not encounter the problem on the 32bit version of Google Chrome v49.0.2623.112 on XP32 & XP x64. But attempting to run the 64bit version of Chrome v49.0.2623.112 produced an error message "The procedure entry point Wow64GetThreadContext could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll" on WinXP Pro x64 SP2. Chrome v50.0.2661.75 was the last one to actually run on Vista SP2 (not on XP) as I tested myself (both 32bit & 64bit versions). However v50.0.2661.87 & higher refused to install nor run on XP & Vista (looks like Google blocked the installation on that one). Anyways, I'll use the win32 (or 32bit) versions of new Firefox versions as they still support XP & Vista. The win64 editions of Firefox only run on Win7 & higher.
  4. Hewlett-Packard has a copy of the KB953028 hotfixes bundled in Softpaq sp41191.exe. "TITLE: DirectX Fix for HP xw9400 Workstations with AMD Opteron 2347 Quad Core Processors - Microsoft Windows XP (KB953028)", VERSION: 1.00 Rev. A
  5. I've used XP64 for a few months on a custom built PC (an Intel D101ggc board with Intel Pentium D 945 3.4ghz cpu, 2Gb of DDR1 SDRAM and 120Gb hard drive) and have no serious problems. one exception is the Hewlett-Packard (HP) Officejet 6500A Plus printer driver which did not install nor function on XP64 because it's not supported [but does support XP32, Vista32, Vista64 & higher] (d**n HP) - there are a handful of HP printers with drivers that won't support XP64 but do support XP32. on the other hand, my other printer (a Lexmark Impact S301) has drivers that do support XP64.
  6. dump MSE on any XP system as Microsoft stopped offering MSE definition updates sometime in 2015 for XP users. the recent virus definition updates for MSE no longer work on XP and require Vista SP2 or higher as I tested them myself. And here's the site where I got those XP64 updates made after April 2014 to July 2015:
  7. flash player was updated to on August 11 as noted in Adobe security bulletin APSB15-19. it should still function on XP. flash ActiveX download is for Internet Explorer, plugin is for Mozilla based browsers (Firefox/Seamonkey) and PPAPI is for browsers like Google Chrome and recent Opera browsers
  8. not really. DX12 is tied to wddm 2.0 spec and wddm 2.0 is a win10-only feature. the Direct3D 12 API requires WDDM 2.0.
  9. direct DL link for KB3023607 x86/32bit avoid installing KB3023607 on computers using Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client application. a "fix it" solution is posted in Microsoft support KB article 3023607 for this broken patch
  10. speaking of KB3023607, that specific patch breaks Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client sofware. KB3023607 is only offered at WU/MU right now (and not through MS download center) and there's a fix for this "broken" patch mentioned in MS KB article 3023607. Do NOT install the KB3023607 update on machines that have Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client application installed!
  11. herbalist, it's the same for any version of Windows XP, including Home edition. my brother and I bought the Windows XP Home Edition RTM upgrade CD that came in a product box back in early 2003 and online activation still works, even past the April 8, 2014 support cut-off date.
  12. Actually the very last version of Google Chrome to work on Intel Pentium 3s / AMD Athlon XP-K7 Semprons is version 34.0.1847.137. I'm using this version of Chrome 34 on an old XP SP3 computer (Intel Celeron 1.1Ghz with 512Mb of RAM) Chrome 35 and above require Intel Pentium 4 with SSE2 & AMD K8 (X2) CPUs or better.
  13. any good reason why you want to use IE7 instead of IE8, ND22?
  14. Links to version 2.58 (final) of the 98 gold / first edition service pack released August 2012: full version (55Mb) lite version (30Mb) I may produce a 3.0 release sometime in 2015 after my family & I move to a new house in early 2015.
  15. effective 12/31/2014, this service pack has been retired as in end-of-life / end-of-support. From this point on I will focus my efforts in continuing the unofficial win98 1st edition SP with a 3.0 release coming sometime in 2015 or later.
