Microsoft Encarta has been discontinued since 2009, and the website associated with it seemed to have come down in 2011, so I'd say Microsoft Encarta 2004 is now abandonware. I actually have seen a few downloads on WinWorld from between 2000 and 200…
Also, I don't think it's even right to contribute files that you downloaded from other sites. I think it's a much better idea to upload your own releases to WinWorld (a legal copy of something you have on an actual disk), but I get it, it probably i…
2018 was good in terms of my software finds: Simcity 2000 for Windows 95, Office 2000 Pro, a 32-CD set of the first 111 years of National Geographic issues and today came the crown jewel:!
I had to retire my native…
Coming from my point of view, I would never recommend download managers/assistants to anyone who wants to download stuff the safe way, because they do seem a little too dangerous according to what I've seen so far in this topic, and the Wikipedia ar…
I might be a little late for the party, but we're all friends, so what the heck. Anyways, I just can't believe it's already 2019, 2018 did go by fast. I've been a WinBoards/WinWorld member since February 2018, and I can't believe that was already a …
Windows Vista was not that bad of an OS. I actually have a PC with Vista, and it seems to work fine, although it has been a bit slower than it used to be, but that could just be because of it being unsupported. I remember back in late 2016, I couldn…
UPDATE: I no longer use McAfee SiteAdvisor. I now use Norton Security, which I got as a subscription very recently, and with that, I got the Chrome extension for Norton which is like McAfee SiteAdvisor, but better. So no more fake blacklistings
I decided to repost the information about my first computer since my last post had incorrect information about it's specs.
Anyway, like I said before in this topic, my first computer was a custom build from 1998. My parents got it as our first "f…
I think it could be possible to play games in virtual machines, but probably not 3D games, because like KCompRoom2000 said, the graphics would probably be crappy, but maybe try using VirtualBox Guest Additions, because that usually enhances a lot of…
Yeah, I think I'll remove McAfee SiteAdvisor from my browser and go with a better so called web crawler that actually does useful and realistic things. And yes, I am now able to have WinWorld whitelisted again.
No issues here, though all I have is an old firewall (ZoneAlarm 6.5).
I wonder if McAfee tries to flag other abandonware sites.
Well, like I said, McAfee WebAdvisor is known for incorrectly flagging websites, sometimes…
I don't think I've ever shown pictures of my desktops. So, here they are,
Main PC (my custom built desktop PC)
Alternate PC (my laptop)
Yes, I do like to keep my desktops clean and having all my programs organized wit…
AFAIK, MS-DOS was not made to boot from optical disk (CD/DVD) or USB (except MS-DOS 7.1, which does work on CD), it's only for floppy disks. Floppy disks were what people used back in the 80's and early 90's for installing media on computers. Optica…
I have a bunch of collected computers, the most used are:
nVidia GTX660, 2GB
240 GB OCZ SSD
i5 520m, 2GB RAM
160GB OCZ SSD
Video Editing PC (Custom-built in a Dell Inspiron 660 case):
Mobo: ASUS H110M-A/M.2 (MicroATX)
PSU: EVGA 430W ATX
CPU: Intel Core i3 6100 @ 3.7 GHz (plan on upgrading to an i5 at some point)
GPU: nVidia Geforce GT…
Man, I have quite a few programs I still use sometimes when I somehow end up using them, such as on my older PC running Windows 98, I have Adobe Photoshop 5.0, Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0, Adobe Acrobat 6.0, Microsoft Office 97, and Internet Explor…
Found some neat keyboards from around the late 90's. They're brand new in their OEM boxes.

Where's Windows Whistler Advanced Server Build 2493?
That build is a beta build for Windows Server 2003, which WinWorld does not host yet. This page is for Windows XP betas only. Also, I don't mean to sound like I'm crit…
Microsoft never had Windows 3.1 for sale on CD.
I have a disk image for Windows 3.1 in CD-ROM format. But it's not actually real, it was made with MSDN (Microsoft Developer Network). But it did work when I used it to instal…
Here are some more product keys I found online. Enjoy
Windows NT 4.0 Workstation
Windows 98 Second Edition
I'm sure you can remove Internet Explorer 6 from Windows XP. I'm sure Nathan Lineback from Toastytech has done that type of method. Because after all, IE is EVIL
Back on topic, I do…
The main problem is the old unremovable IE 6, which is used as the embedded core for many shitty desktop applications including their activation program, does not support recent encryption methods. Install SP 3, IE 8, and what…
You cannot activate over internet anymore since the internet servers for XP activation has been long gone.
Are you saying that people can't access the internet in Windows XP anymore? So even if you tried using a router or mode…
It would be a good idea, but that's only if there's enough content solely focused on the one thing, as what SomeGuy said.
Well, what I mean by "tutorials" or "guides" is that people could just start their topics with words su…
I like the idea. I would love a wiki
Agreed. But I don't think a Wiki would be needed on WinWorld since the library pretty much has the information about their downloads on the product pages.
You may …
Also, I'm not much of a Linux user, but I do use Chromebooks, which run Chrome OS, which is based on the Linux kernel. The reason I said that is because I actually do prefer Windows over Linux because Windows has more compatibility for more software…
Well, think about it for a minute... Microsoft have went somewhat downhill when it comes to Windows 10 and we know the many things wrong with it
Is Windows 10 actually a bad operating system? Because in my humble opinion, it …
According to the "comparison of platform virtualization software", at the section about PearPC, the guest OS part lists the following operating system families: Mac OS, and OS X. Actually, I found a way it seems to bypass the guest OS compatibility …
