  1. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    I use ublock origin as well. no problems here, so probably not that. I am on x86 though, that may make a difference.
  2. Antivirus for xp?

    I use clamwin on all my computers. Very lightweight, but no real time scanning.
  3. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    Advanced Chrome is perfectly stable on both of my computers that i have it on. @TrevMUNPerhaps you are using some weird and buggy add-on?
  4. Windows XP - Deepest Impressions

    I think Linux mint cinnamon is very user friendly actually, though there are some non-user friendly ones out there. LibreOffice and OpenOffice both run on a variety of flavors of Linux and i'd consider them 'normal'. If you mean "not a whole lot runs on Linux" you'd be at least partially correct, yes.
  5. You Want to Change Your Username?

    i was just respecting his wishes...
  6. You Want to Change Your Username?

    Can I have my username changed to i430VX (note the case, the first letter being lowercase, and the VX being uppercase) This way, i will have the same name across the inter-webs, (for the most part) Thanks!
  7. Installing XP on new motherboards.

    To answer your question @Roffen it would copy setup files to the HDD, restart, get to the "Installing Devices" stage, and halfway through, BSoD. 0x0000007b If I recall correctly. I see you edited your initial post. If its very slow, have you installed the chipset drivers yet?
  8. Personally, I own 3. Compaq Presario 1260 Compaq Presario 1065 (and a broken one for parts) Compaq Presario 3550 (Will add details Later) My father has a Presario 1200XL with Windows ME. (Still actively used by him for Excel and Word editing)
  9. Installing XP on new motherboards.

    Have you set the HDD controller to Compatibility/IDE mode? At what point do you get the BSoD? What does it say? On my fairly new-ish board, I had to also disable all of the CPU cores in BIOS except the first one, install XP SP3, and re-enable them. If/When you need them, here is drivers for the board. Just select XP from the list and there they are. https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/M5A99FX_PRO_R20/HelpDesk_Download/
  10. Salutations my friends

    Welcome to the forum askey!
  11. Forum upgrade to v4.2!

    yep. my resolution is 1024x768 and zooming out fixes it. I knew I should have gotten the 15' ThinkPad T60 with a slightly larger resolution.
  12. Greetings!

    I really do have to agree with you @Tommy the windows 2000 interface is my favorite, even though I leave XP (My main OS) at its default 'Fisher-Price Blue' interface. Even though 95 (with IE4 web update, only difference being no title bar color blending ) , 98 and ME have almost the same interface as 2000, The Windows 2000 shell looks the best to me, and is more stable, from my experience. (although the 95 shell without the web update seems pretty darn stable too)
  13. DOS and 9X/ME on Z170 Test

    remember, @98SE, if you need blazing performance and fanless there's always those absurd cases that cost £900, like this one https://www.quietpc.com/tnn500af speaking of fanless, it is my mission to eventually have a passively cooled P4 PresHOT 3.8ghz (I'm seriously doubting this is possible, the one in my dell has a MASSIVE heatsink and good thermal paste but the fan always hangs around somewhere between "vacuum cleaner" and "Turbocharged Leafblower".) You broke the theme @98SE ...10
