    Thanks, trium.
  2. I did delete those tasks. Maybe no need, but afaik no harm either. Will run it a bit to see what happens. Quite so. Should be easier to get rid of when they expire.
  3. Hi, Ishan. Great to see you again. How time does fly. Stay safe.
  4. Thanks again, nukecad. ADW cleaner did indeed work just as you said. I was afraid it would run before I was ready, but it waits for you to "say go". Still, fwiw, I make a trial run with software like that just in case. Macrium reflect images make that easy. As I recall, Hazelnut recommended Macrium. What would I do wihout you guys? This computer runs much better without all that stuff.
  5. AdwCleaner from Malwarebytes . . .running it, thanks. It's done. Fast. It found the ebay link and hp sotware, including one which I thought was gone. Says it found 41 items but only lists 9. Is 41 the number of registry entries, you suppose? Will run it again when SD is off and see what happens. Thanks again.
  6. Well, that was a chore! I remember now that those softwares were useful at first, helped to check & troubleshoot. No use now, of course. There might be a quicker way, but I investigated each software separately before uninstalling it. They are indeed tightly bundled. Many odd glitches during the removal process, but nothing crashed and all seems well now. I tried it w/ shadow defender on at first, to save me from my own mistakes, but eventually just gave that up and made a macrium differential image at each critical stage. Five or six minutes for each. Fwiw, using the control panel with shadow defender on increases the time required to remove each software from 2 or 3 minutes to over 30 minutes. During that time the uninstall popup just sits there. Everything else works, but it won't budge & won't cancel. It always did eventually finish. Anyway, thanks for the heads up. This win 7 box now boots and shuts down faster. The registry is a mess, but I'll get to that later. lol
  7. Update. I am going to wait a bit before removing that HP software. On this win 7 computer that software seems to be tightly integrated with some funcions I want to keep. Not sure exactly how much stuff will be disabled. Just don't know enough about the issue to proceed yet. Might be a bit over my head.
  8. Right, and this computer is too old to benefit anyway.
  9. I intend to remove it soon. Have known it to be a chatty software. It MAY? affect the OEM backup system, not sure, but Macrium has that covered anyway. Thanks for the heads up.
  10. Yes indeed. Thanks to both for the heads up. Mypal browser is fast & functional on the old xp box, far superior to the last available Firefox. Runs great in sandboxie too. Can be set to automatically start in a sandbox if you wish.
  11. Merry Christmas and May God Bless.
  12. Great find, Hazelnut. Thanks for sharing.

    11 September.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
