  1. Great find, Hazelnut. Thanks for sharing.

    11 September.
  3. True, that xp file was on here before. I had not recognized that it was the same file for xp. So I carefully saved and installed it twice. No doubt that's why no restart was needed this time. That first link above was dated 17 jun 19, after that first post in May. That's my best excuse & I'm staying with it. Anyway, the files for the other OSs are different, might be of some use.
  4. This one is for to windows 2000 thru windows 7. The exploit is called "BlueKeep" , it exploits the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). Info and download links here: https://www.us-cert.gov/ncas/alerts/AA19-168A Download links for Win XP: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4500705/customer-guidance-for-cve-2019-0708 Download links for Win 7: https://portal.msrc.microsoft.com/en-US/security-guidance/advisory/CVE-2019-0708 Edit: I just installed it on XP, no issues and no restart required.
  5. GParted is an excellent partition management software. As with all Linux based distros, especially disk editors, be careful. Gparted can gum things up badly and without no warning if used wrongly. Announcement and information here: https://news.softpedia.com/news/gparted-open-source-partition-editor-reaches-1-0-milestone-after-almost-15-years-526221.shtml and here https://sourceforge.net/projects/gparted/ Home page is here: https://gparted.org/ I just finished putting the live i686 iso and the AMD64 iso onto the same USB stick. Together they needed only about 630 mb disk space. I installed them using the UEFI version of Your Universal Multiboot Installer (YUMI), from https://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/ The documentation on the GParted page does not mention using YUMI but it does work. When you boot the USB stick you are offered a choice of which version to open.The AMD64 version booted fine on a win 7 uefi gpt computer. Have not tried the i686 version yet. If this should be in "Freeware Rebooted" please move it there. Thanks
  6. Quite right, vankjeff, about your 3 points above. The booting business is more complicated but not your primary objective anyway. As for the Ice Age, I rather like it here, but to each his own. To be serious, it's kind of a hobby, puttering around and checking out what will work with what.
  7. vankjeff, there is another option if the computers don't have to be functional when you get rid of them. Wipe the HDDs or not, as you wish (I probably would), but then remove them from the computer & just keep them. You might eventually use them in an external caddy for file storage, backup storage, whatever. Even if not, they take up very little space in the sock drawer. Full disclosure, this suggestion is from the a digital pack rat, still running win xp & office 97.
  8. Thanks Hazelnut & Andavari. Same thing here, installs quick & easy, makes a restore point, then needs a restart. Everything seems to work still. Was a bit worried about Powershadow but it's ok.
  9. Thank you for that, Hazelnut. Also very decent of microsoft to release it. Will try it here & see what happens.
  10. Yes, indeed. That one is a real if unsung hero. Also, I was much encouraged to see that botanists have a sense of humor. I'll go out on a limb here and predict that the eastern filbert blight be defeated, and you're safe for now.
  11. Agricultural researchers in the USA have made a significant breakthrough in battling the eastern filbert blight which threatens to cripple hazelnut orchards. https://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt/2013/02/18/171420517/growing-resistance-oregon-hazelnuts-battle-blight One intrepid researcher has risked life & limb to collect blight resistant seeds. https://www.npr.org/2019/04/11/712409240/one-mans-quest-to-change-americas-presence-in-the-global-hazelnut-industry Several decades into the battle, researchers seem to be winning, but one plant pathologist warns that the hazelnut isn't out of the woods yet.

  12. Hi, 1984. Yep, time flies. Good to know you're OK.
