  1. Ain't it be a problem for some that kb3118304 have many language-dependent installers? Should we inform them that they misinformed masses in their blog?
  2. I'm glad to inform that you are right, and after manually installing Office 2007 patches scan for new updates went smoothly and they installed flawlessly. I'm also glad to inform that after recent updates, Avast! will most likely stop troubling your updates. Besides, I'm not sure how Compatibility Pack 2007 patches should apply to Office 2007. I've downloaded all of them listed by Bersalgio, and KB3191828, KB3203436 and KB3203438 got installed. KB3127894 thrown error that there is no program installed that it should apply to. Microsoft on their blog (link below) shows KB3203438 and KB3127894 as applicable for office 2007, so i understand nothing...
  3. @Bersaglio did a good list, that lacks items I needed the most - For office 2007. So i did, and you have files listed below. I couldn't find such elegant links for executables, so I provide links to cab packages from windows update with exception to one that has many language versions - there you have catalog list. Keep in mind that all files are not necessary - you don't need update for Outlook 2007 if you have home version of Office. KB3191837 Office 2007 KB3203441 Word 2007 KB3203436 Office 2007 KB3127888 PowerPoint 2007 KB3118304 Office 2007 Many language versions-choose yours KB3191898 Outlook 2007 KB3191828 Office 2007 Hope I made no mistake :>
  4. WMF 4 updates to Powershell 4 WMF 5 Updates to Powershell 5 While your old cmdlets will get updated to their newest standard, keep in mind that some newer cmdlets require system elements of Windows 8, 8.1 or 10 in order to be run and won't be visible. as about WMF 5.1, all your questions are resolved below: So it seems it's enough to install WMF 5.1 over WMF 4.0 OR WMF 5.0. Not both.
  5. Well, if you -have the registry set up, as described in the first post. -have the MSI 4.5 installed (and I think you've said you have) -Have the updated Internet explorer (And i remember You've been receiving the updates until they suddenly stop working) Then, well, that's all I ever did myself. The only thing I can recommend then is to go back to system restore point prior to the problem (keep in mind that if the problem started long ago, this is rather a bad advice). I keep my XP updated, because I'm a paranoid and it's used by my relatives, that are not geeky, so I want these security updates. However, for most people being hidden behind well-configured router and following basic security rules (do not open suspicious e-mail and attachments, do not install untrusted things, use strong passwords etc.) should be enough to survive. Keep in mind that it's been more than 3 years since XP lost official support, and we had seen no big attack targeting XP users. WannaCry was a medial issue, but this is a case when home networks shouldn't be even vulnerable. So, If you backtrack all the possible failure points and still nothing helps, no updates are coming, don't rush for reinstallation or Windows 10. Many machines are running XP with no Unofficial service pack 4 and keeping fine
  6. Can't say about UDF, but exFAT should be suitable solution, if what you ned from NTFS is capability to store big files. exFAT drivers should be installed for every Windows from XP up, and installing them on Linux should not be a big deal :>
  7. Don't you block the cookies? Information, that you confirmed information about the cookies is stored in eh... cookie
  8. Uh, how many of home users use RDP? I'd say disabling it seems to be pretty wise security advice.
  9. Cannot reproduce the issue on Polish XP as well. News informed about Moldavian government. I cannot find whether there were Moldavian edition of XP or were they using some other national edition (maybe Russian or Romanian)?
  10. Not sure how Avast! looks like on Windows 95, but If there is an option to view it's firewall logs, we'd like to have an insight to them (at least to the part showing what happened when you tried printing). Did the problem start form some particular point in time, or is it happening since the Avast! and printer are both present?
  11. It means Home XP was provided with patch that blocks WannaCry spread via SMBv1 and not a bit more. Home XP got update from march. POSReady got new update in may, fixing another flaw.
  12. Link to older post from 2014. looks like bad quote tag editing makes some trouble.
  13. It DOES, however, some IT news sites reports that due to high interest in patching corporate system it is overloaded by the amount of traffic.
  14. We can get away with POSready-ing our home XP's but imagine that whole, let say, British NHS is going to use this trick, and how many lawyers' bul***** might be thrown into when M$ will realize that thousands of machines are getting updates that no one have paid form :>
  15. It seems I've forgotten to put smiley at the end of the quoted sentence
