  1. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    - In the previous post, I confused the date of the articles with the date of release of the updates. And then the info in the articles start to make sense. - The "Microsoft Update Catalogue" website says that KB 4498206 was released on May 11, 2019. But KB 4505050 was issued on May 18, 2019.
  2. - In february 2018 Microsoft didn't release a "Rollup Update" for e.g. Windows 7. - People who are still using Internet Explorer 11 (I am one of them) still can update their IE 11 browser. MS has continued to release a separate "Cumulative Update for Internet Explorer 11" every month, alongside with the "Rollup Update". And even in february 2018 MS issued another "Cumulative Update for IE 11" (KB 4088835)". - These IE 11 updates aren't released through the "Windows Update" feature/mechanism. Instead the user has to go to the "Microsoft Update Catalog" website and search with the keywords "Internet Explorer 11 update". https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Home.aspx
  3. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    - Microsoft issued a "Cumulative Update" for Windows 7, on May 18, 2019. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4505050/cumulative-update-for-internet-explorer - And today (May 20, 2019) Microsoft issued a "Cumulative SECURITY Update": https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4498206/cumulative-security-update-for-internet-explorer-may-20-2019 Read the articles below for all the details !!!!
  4. Has anyone used OE Classic?

    - I came across the following text on the Outlook Classic website (posted: October 1, 2016): "In other news, we are testing IMAP support. It works already and internal builds can connect to a server and fetch messages. But there is a lot of work in tweaking it properly and adding it to the user-interface in a user friendly manner. We'll get there and we will keep you informed." - Source: https://www.oeclassic.com/news
  5. Microsoft Edge Chromium Edition

    - I tried it today but the browser is still missing a number of things. - It can be used on a Win 8, Win 10 and even on a Win 7 system. Seems MS is very serious/determined to get this right. - First impression: It seems to be running fast/smoothly and with a lower CPU usage. But I must test/use the program more before I make a final decision whether or not I am going to use it more frequently. Internet Explorer 11 still has a number advantages over Edge. - I downloaded it from the following weblink: https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/microsoft_edge.html
  6. Cannot get Fragmentation level below 30%

    - It also could be a "permission" problem. If you don't have the right permission then Defraggler won't touch/move those files. - There is a program that can set all the proper permissions (for the registry and file) called "Tweaking's Windows Repair". Try it and report back if fragmentation has gone lower.
  7. Has anyone used OE Classic?

    - Post removed.
  8. Has anyone used OE Classic?

    - Outlook Express Classic v2.9 (both the free & PRO version) released.
  9. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    @Mrs. Jones: - With this kind of problems I would recommend to run Tweaking's Windows Repair. it can fix a whole range of things in Windows. I am not convinced that an IE 11 update would have fixed your problem. - After Installing the latest Internet Explorer 11 Cumulative Update Windows Update recommended one general and one "Stack Update" patch. i can't figure out why and how this happened and if this is IE 11 related. I am sure there is a clear logic behind all this but I can't see what the logic is supposed to be.
  10. Speccy - No updates since May 2018

    - I think there is no reason to release a new version of SPECCY. Otherwise the good folks at Piriform would have done so.
  11. Website: Tweaking.com

    Are the visitors from this website aware that the guy from CLEANMEM has started a new website called TWEAKING.com ? http://www.tweaking.com I helped him get rid of the bugs in and develop the interface of the program called ""Windows Repair"". If the more tech savvy moderators/visitors of the Piriform forum have more suggestions to improve the program then they are welcome to do so. (Aethec ?? Hazelnut ?? Alan_B ??, .... ??) I had to keep it under wraps for a while but now the website is up and running. Check it out.
  12. Has anyone used OE Classic?

    - Currently the amount of languages supported by OEC has increased to 21. People who want to help to translate the program in more languages are still very welcome.
  13. Website: Tweaking.com

    - Perhaps some other program is very busy at the same time ? If so then try to increase the delay with which the program is run would help to fix this problem. The program uses Task Scheduler to be started. - Post your problem on the Tweaking.com forum website.
  14. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    - Actually, the update for IE 11 is included in the monthly "Roll up update" for Windows 7 (SP 1). But I always download both the update for IE 11 and the monthly rollup. Just in case I need to re-install Win7. - MS started in 2013 (2014 ??) to release a "Cumulative Security Updates for IE 11" every month. That was long before MS started to issue "Monthly Rollup Updates" (mid 2016 ?).
  15. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    - No, this IE 11 update (KB 4486474) won't be offered through the Windows Update mechanism. The user has to go out and actively search for this update on the Microsoft Update Catalogus website. See e.g. the 1st post in this thread.
  16. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    - Ah. MS was a "bit late". Today I did find the "Cumulative Security Update for IE 11". It's KB 4486474 (for Windows 7).
  17. Problems with playing videos

    - I need help for a nagging problem. I am still a happy user of Internet Explorer 11 on my Windows 7 system. Yes, I know it's (a bit) outdated but it still works good enough. There are - at least - 2 good reasons why I prefer IE 11 over e.g. Firefox and Chrome (I use the last 2 as well every now and then). - But since say 2 weeks I am not able anymore to play videos (e.g. on YouTube) with IE 11. The message is "An error occurred. Try later again. ................. ". This error doesn't show up when I use Chrome or Firefox (I don't use them that often for a good reason). - I tried several things. I removed several rollup updates (for IE 11, Windows and .NET). I removed and re-installed Flash, Java, VLC Player and REAL player, etc. etc. I tried all the suggestions that were made on the internet (thanks to GOOGLE) but it was all to no avail. The only thing I can do is changing the ActiveX settings but I don't know what boxes to tick or un-tick (in IE 11 ??). - Does anyone have an explanation why this started to happen right now ? Does anyone have suggestions to solve this problem ? Is it related to e.g HTML-5, Flash, Microsoft Edge/IE 11 or something else ? - Lots of questions but GOOGLE failed to give any good answers. That's why I pose these questions here on this forum.
  18. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    - It seems this month there is no separate Cumulative Security Update for IE 11. I searched the MS Update catalogus website but to no avail.
  19. Problems with playing videos

    - Odd, very odd. After re-installing most (not all) programs I removed before, I still can play videos without a problem on e.g. YouTube. - But now I have a different video problem. I have a bunch of videos on my HD but some of these videos won't play with the installed (video) codec(s). I have to install a different codec pack to be able to play those videos, those trouble makers. But then other videos won't play. Then I have to (re-)install the old codec (again). And I think all this switching back and forth, all these codec changes ultimately caused the troubles in the first place (see the 1st post in this thread.) - That brings up another question: Can anyone recommend a codec pack that contains every codec that is able to play every type of video with e.g Real Player or Windows Media Player ? - I know, I know these 2 players are also (fairly) old but Real Player has one VERY nice feature I have become addicted to and I haven't seen that one feature in other media players (yet).
  20. Hidden restore points

    - Run Antibody's Wiztree. It will show the size of the folder "System Volume Information". That's the folder where the System Restore Points (SRPs) are stored. - Even if CCleaner shows no SRPs then that one folder can contain GBs in data.
  21. System restore points are missing

    - Interesting that work-around. - This reminds of something else. In a different thread someone reported that without System Restore active, Defraggler ran (much) faster on his (her ??) Windows 10 system.
  22. Problems with playing videos

    - Thanks for all the replies. Especially the answer of Nikki605 gave me a good clue what to look for. With the help of CCleaner I sorted all the software installed on the "date installed" and removed all the software I installed this year (quite a long list). And yes, I was able to play Youtube videos again. - Now I will re-install all the removed software again, one by one. Then I will be able to see what software causes YouTube to "malfunction". I fear some programs I use are - like IE 11 - (a bit) outdated. We'll have to wait and see what I'll come across.
  23. RIP Edge browser?

    - This could pose a problem for third party software who use the "rendering engine" of Edge and perhaps even Internet Explorer (like e.g. Outlook Classic). We'll have to wait and see what the future will bring.
  24. NSA love song

    - We all know that the NSA in the US and other "intelligency agencies" in a lot of other countries are listening to/spying on almost all computer users and their activity on the internet. That makes me feel very uncomfortable (every now and then). However, Roy Zimmerman provides here a little comic relief. He wrote a song called "Hello, NSA". The song is a (kind of) love song for the NSA. LOL.
  25. Has anyone used OE Classic?

    - There is a discussion thread on the topic "OE Classic" on the "Wilders Security" forum. And here one developer of OEC also chimes in. https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/oe-classic-discussions-and-updates.393261/
