  1. Thank you so much 5eraph for your prompt response. I have downgraded muweb.dll to version 7.6.7600.256, reregisted it with Regsvr32, but firstly I got “404 - File or directory not found”, then after second reboot it worked! In this case, what is your or anyone else opinion on using POSReady hack to WinXP?
  2. I like WinXP very much and am still using it. On 2014/11/11 I could still get Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool and other Office Updates. But when trying to access Microsoft Updates site since yesterday I got Error number: 0x80248015 with following message: The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view. The options provided below might help you solve the problem. Does it mean Microsoft has finally closed the Updates site for all WinXP users? Or is it only me? Thanks for your comments.
  3. I happen to find out the cause of this strange behavior, it is the following Registry entry that is existing in the desktop, but not in the laptop: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Auslogics\DiskDefrag\4.x\Settings] "General.DefWebBrowser"="C:\\Program Files\\Mozilla Firefox\\firefox.exe" After deleting that entry Auslogics Disk Defrag behaves normally, i.e., it opens the default browser IE8 when checking the updates. What is causing the existence of that entry remains a puzzle though.
  4. Thanks for the response. I should have mentioned earlier that this behavior only takes place on my desktop. On my laptop Auslogics Disk Defrag opens IE8 when checking the updates. I also have tried to uninstall Firefox in my desktop; in that case Auslogics Disk Defrag opens IE8. But then when I reinstalled Firefox, Auslogics revert to open Firefox again. So I was thinking that something is wrong with the WinXP in my desktop. Am I wrong? Any help will be highly appreciated.
  5. I set IE8 as my default browser in my WinXP Home SP3. I also installed Firefox 27.0.1. All programs will open IE8 as default browser when they need to access internet, such as checking the updates, except one program Auslogics Disk Defrag that opens Firefox when checking the updates, even though Firefox is not the default browser. Any enlightenment for that weird behavior will be highly appreciated.
  6. The topic I submitted earlier is basically not a functional problem, more just sort of annoyance, not able to get the Windows Update open maximized when started, that is especially true for netbook with smaller screen. True, I can each time click “maximize window” to maximize it, but it would be nice to have it starting with the window maximized. After some attempts, I finally could achieve it by creating my own shortcut, which is basically replacing the target in the shortcut that was originally: %SystemRoot%\system32\wupdmgr.exe With the following: "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" http://www.update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-us Now, each time I click Windows Update shortcut, it will start in maximized window. Annoyance removed.
  7. Even though the shortcut has been set to Run Maximized, starting Windows Update manually under WinXP will open it in Internet Explorer 8 not maximized. Is there a way to start wupdmgr.exe (Windows Update) maximized? All hints will be highly appreciated.
  8. After searching in the Internet, finally I found out that the Microsoft Works shortcuts with the Target field greyed out belong to the so called "advertised shortcuts", which is basically a Windows Installer shortcut that provides two key features familiar to anyone who has installed Microsoft Office: "Install on first use" and "Detect and Repair". When a Microsoft Works program is activated, the Windows Installer engine checks whether proper versions of needed files are installed. If a file is not installed or is damaged, Windows Installer will initiate an Install-On-Demand to repair anything that is missing or damaged. That said I tried to find out what was causing the demand to reinstall MS Works Word Processing, with the help of Event Viewer, I found the following: Detection of product '{15BC8CD0-A65B-47D0-A2DD-90A824590FA8}', feature 'WP', component '{8EF0B1F1-7564-44C1-97A6-14730D80E807}' failed. The resource 'HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.wps\ShellEx\' does not exist. After adding “ShellEx” key into the Registry 'HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.wps\', my Word Processor shortcut works again. As to why was the key “ShellEx” missing, I recalled that recently I tried Kingsoft Office, it seemed that this program has taken over the assignment of .wps, and when I uninstall it, the Kingsoft Office had also removed the “ShellEx” key. Hope this experience will be useful to those that got similar problem.
  9. I have preinstalled Microsoft Works 9 in my Eee PC. I seldom use it, but since a couple of days I find weird behavior as follows: When I click Word Processor from the Start Menu, instead of the Microsoft Works Word Processor it is the Windows Installer that is started that ends up asking Installation Disc (works9.msi) that I do not have. I have to cancel it and error message pops up. All other Microsoft Works programs like Spreadsheet etc. work perfectly all right. Only Word Processor behaves strange as mentioned above. However, I can start the Word Processor by directly double-clicking WksWP.exe in the Microsoft Works folder, and it seems to work also OK, I can also create a shortcut for WksWP.exe, clicking that shortcut will also start Word Processor with no problem. Only the original Works shortcut with greyed out target behaves like that. What could be wrong and what could be done to bring it back to normal. All hints and supports will be highly appreciated.
  10. In Vista we can run Task Scheduler event based, e.g., we can schedule a program to run when the PC resumes from standby. Can we tweak Task Scheduler in WinXP to do the same? Perhaps with sort of add-ins or plug-ins? Any idea? Thanks a lot.
  11. No CD drive connected. BTW, my Eee PC comes with Seagate hard disk, not a SSD, so it is not mobile drive.
  12. No!! I did not modify my Eee PC which is: ASUS Eee PC 1000HA 10-Inch Netbook that comes with 1.6 GHz Intel ATOM N270 Processor, 1 GB RAM, 160 GB Hard Drive (Seagate Momentus 5400.4) and XP Home.
  13. My netbook ASUS Eee PC is running WinXP Home SP3. The hard disk is SATA Seagate ST9160827AS. The system works perfectly all right, but each time when the system goes to Standby, I got Error message under the System in Event Viewer that said: Source: atapi Event ID: 9 The device, \Device\Ide\IdePort0, did not respond within the timeout period. Could someone enlighten me what could be the cause and eventually how to fix it. Thanks a lot.
  14. I posted this message about two years ago, but still no clue till now Since I found the solution myself, I feel obliged to write it here, just in case some one else needs the same solution. The reason that Metapad's Save As default to %HOMEDRIVE% is because the Start In on the Shortcut Properties was by default %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%, after replacing it with My Documents, the Save As will then default to My Documents, or it can certainly be replaced by any other folder if so wished.
  15. I did not know how did that happen, but it seems the problem was the result of inconsistencies between following registry keys in different places in the registry: - NoDriveTypeAutoRun - NoCDBurning Also I got rid of all keys “NoDriveAutoRun”. After that done, it seems the problem has disappeared. Those of you that have similar problem may try that tips.
