  • @win32 said: Microsoft doesn't want us doing lots of stuff. And that they can't do jack about it, no matter how much they can try.
    in Windows 7 EOL Comment by Bry89 June 15
  • That popup might've been part of a Windows update, as with one that came about months ago. There's no way that would appear out of nowhere. As someone who still uses 7, I still refuse to upgrade. Not sure if it would be safe to use it beyond its EOL…

  • A Wiki would be beneficial, so that all information can be put in one place and easier to find. But first, wait until there's official word from any of the guys that you tagged (which is actually no need to do, because that would be attention-seekin…
  • Just when I was about to install it, I got this error message. Software Update KB4488669 Installation Wizard does not apply, or is blocked by another condition on your computer. And it was for both updates (the one for Windows 7 only, …
  • I'm sorry for not responding sooner but, I can't seem to delete "GfxUI", not from Autoruns anyway. Might be somewhere in the system folders where I can. Also, I thought that the next .NET update was for this month's Patch Tuesday but it wasn't so, i…
  • @Lenovo1984 said: @BlueSun said: I have no doubt Apple wants to move to ARM, but I also have no doubt that they'll lose a ton of users in that switch. I've heard a lot of stories over the years from people that switched to Macs citi…
  • @yourepicfailure said: What gets me is the lack of effort on Apple's part on cracking down hackintoshes. I thought they had taken enough action against them? I mean, I know they've at least known about them being made and sent people thre…
  • Why should you worry about getting infected? Viruses only happen if you browse into the wrong places let alone download crap from them. Windows Defender is better than nothing. Just game on and don't get so paranoid.
  • @cafyon, you just bumped a thread last posted almost 15 years ago. Just thought I'd say it. Well, going in line with this discussion, I've used MagicISO to edit ISOs when needed (or to convert certain formats into .iso, such as .img files).
    in Wanna edit ISOs? Comment by Bry89 May 24
  • It's to be expected. Apple really don't want people running their OS on non-Apple hardware. It's not going to change.
  • I've unchecked the process, and I also deleted two other logon-based things too (such as BlueStacks and something to do with Journal Note Writer, and only did that due to "file not found" in each, and once saw errors to do with them under Event View…
  • Okay, I've got Autoruns up and I see four things that relate to that process. Under the Logon tab, there is "IgfxTray" which I think is related to GfxUI. Just want you all to confirm that it's the same thing before I do anything.
  • That's like when I had one .NET Framework update that completely wrecked access to Firefox and Internet Explorer, and also caused FrontPage 2003 to be unresponsive. I'm not sure about deleting that entry though, unless you tell me it's 100% safe …
  • @yourepicfailure said: A .net update can break it (gfxui is .net based) or a driver update. I think that's my problem right there. In another thread, I mentioned of refusing future .NET Framework updates when I reported that they were aff…
  • I don't wish to roll back the driver in case anything screws up badly, like what happened regarding an "update" to the sound driver years ago (in where rolling it back only caused the system to freeze up when the audio service tried to start, and ha…
  • Excuse me... I've had this laptop for seven and a half years, and I've never had this error come up at me since then. Also, I went under Device Manager and saw that Intel HD Graphics is "working properly". It's not as if I've got a serious issue wit…
  • @thiekus said: I also spotted many ATMs in one of Indonesian bank still booting winxp after their service crash in that machine not long time ago. As for me, I saw a cash register with that in a restaurant, but that was in early 2016. …
  • @win32, thanks for this but I should tell you that this was the French version. However, there's not much of a language barrier though save for the dialog box messages that appear (such as if you wish to quit the program).
  • @Windows99SE said: And the kids that spammed "GIVE ME WINDOWS XP" will be coming back to ask for it again. I think that's already happened Also, don't remind us of that moron. To be honest, what use does InstallShield have anyway, com…
  • No. Unless you want WinWorld be bombarded with DMCA complaints again.
  • @yourepicfailure said: Good. Now it shall be consigned to history. No, now it enters the ranks of Windows 2000 with its dedicated die-hard fans who will keep it going too. Well, you've got a point. I suppose the mar…
  • Good. Now it shall be consigned to history.
  • @SomeGuy said: This CD image has been tampered with. How so? There doesn't appear to be anything fishy from the screenshot provided. Unless it's to do with its files from wonky dates again, like that other ISO discussed quite recently.
  • I hadn't realised the other one here was "fake" in some way until you mentioned it. Thanks for this. But, do you think I should uninstall or replace the "fake" one? (I have it installed on a VM by the way)
  • Is this the earliest Longhorn build? It looks way too much like XP to my liking. I dunno... what do you think, @SomeGuy?
  • I once saw someone who was a 9-year-old (and he even admitted of being that age too). In most other forums though, people are to be 13 or over in order to participate, mostly because of the COPPA thing. Also, I should confess that I have Asperger…
  • inb4 SomeGuy. You can't change your email, unfortunately. I just checked that myself. But when you made this account, did you use your new email for it? And how did the old one come about?
  • And how does using VMware help disable the "timebomb" completely? I'd like a detailed explanation.
  • @win32 said: I did like GIMP 2.6.x and 2.8.x but 2.10 changed many things around. Such as? Well, good thing I still have 2.8 then (even if it's only for working with my photos).
  • Even if these are pretty much things that run on top of DOS, they're still classed as OSes anyway, especially for 3.1.
