Windows XP





Microsoft Windows XP is the sixth release of the NT series of operating systems, and was the first to be marketed in a variety of editions: XP Home and XP Professional, designed for business and power users. The advanced features in XP Professional are generally disabled in Home Edition, but are there and can be activated. There were two 64-bit editions, an embedded edition and a tablet edition.

How can I configure windows Xp firewall to block all multicast traffic 224.*.*.* inbound and outbound ?
The windows firewall requires specifying a por ( not a port range)
I'm trying to switch my T480 laptop from a Samsung 2TB 2.5" SSD to a Samsung 2TB PCIe, NVMe drive.  It supports either and there's a cassette adapter that I've bought that goes in the 2.5 slot and a separate cable.  In theory the laptop support 2 channels of data, which would be a nice little bump.

I'm stuck on step one though of cloning my drive.  I've got several external NVMe adapters and they're recognized fine, but I've been trying to clone with both Acronis and Paragon without luck.  I know they're 2 entirely different types of drives, but I thought it might work.  I really don't want to start from raw Windows and work my way up.

Is there anyone that's done something like this?  Is there a different product that will clone cross drives like this?  Are these products fine, but I have to use some entirely different technique?

THis is a server 2008 r2 issue. The first problem was that *.exe files would not run. I got a message that there was no file associated with it. I did find a registry fix for that but there's also a problem running *.msc files. I get the same message. Does someone know what the registry fix for this is?

Thanks in advance for the assistance.


I need to search a text file for 'periods' and the text is a WordPad file.
I am a preacher and not a programmer.

The PHP code should open the file, then
search each line for the 'period' and then perform a carriage return until the file is searched and then close the file.

I already have PHP installed so the computer can run the PHP script.

I tried to use Acronis Universal Restore to restore a backup to  a different computer.   I keep getting the request to provide the following file:

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1C26&SUBSYS_04EE1028&REV_05 for Windows 7

I have the original Dell device drivers and utilities resource media, but it does not appear to be there.    Restore does not proceed without this file.   Where do I find it?

Hi Experts

Could you point a Windows Server version that could be installed at this hardware?

Win7 doesn't have a good performance on my particular case.

Thanks in advance!
In Win 7 & Win 2008 R2, I used to see/use the  Bare Metal backup which I
can restore everything in the event the entire OS or filesystem got corrupted.

Where can I find it in Win10 (or Win2016) : can't seem to locate it:
any screen shots will be appreciated.

if the feature is deprecated (think I saw somewhere that start Win10 Ver1709,
it'll be deprecated??) appreciated any portable freeware that
could do bare metal backups for Win10.
My old PC which i have crucial apps and configuration i want to image that drive and add to a new desktop model. I used Acronis Disk copy and it boots but once it reachers the windows 7 flag it reboots and says startup repair. Any suggestions please?
Hello, I am in the process of implementing Acronis Snap Deploy in my environment and am wondering what other experts have done for version control of their master/base images?
1) How do I completely uninstall/delete Acronis true image 2019 from macOS High Sierra - then reinstall  Acronis true image 2019 pointing to new drives?

2) My goal is to delete all backups from Acronis True Image and rebuild to backup to new attached/online drives.

I will settle for 1) if 2) is not feasible.
Hello i'll like to reuse a workgroup userprofile whan i add the computer to my domain, so all my user settings is not lost

2. change the profilepath here HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\ProfileList
3 reboot

We have given an order to a small Client OEM System Builder to create 25 Clients with the same Image. They are new and have less experience.
I knew it is possible to create such an Image for Windows 7 as I worked for an OEM System Builder. Is it still possible to do this with a Windows 10 Build 1809 OEM? What we need is just to get a new SID and change the Computer name after each restore.

Thanks for helping me

windows 10 laptop has pin to "Quick Access " to quickly go to that folder.

Is there is a way i can sort it based on ascending or descending type order to quickly go there.

How many i can add at most there. Seems whatever i am adding these days not reflecting there?
any alternative approach to this if i max out on that number?
please advise

I need to keep networked 2 medical devices (Zeiss eye scanners) that run Win XP embedded. However HIPPA does not like XP. To upgrade to the latest would cost many thousands MANY.

The devices just need to send a PDF to a network share.

I am looking for the best way to segment out the XP machines and still satisfy HIPPA requirements.

One thing I cant do is just unplug the network and use a usb drive because the devices are used many times a day and would hamper workflow.

I have considered removing the gateway on the XP pcs and also adding strict firewall rules (sonicwall)

Also thought of using a win 10 pc with 2 nics for 2 different subnets to act as a go between

Any thoughts?


XP pro sp3 is horribly slow before startsup.
after bios screen and windows xp appears, I have a black screen for more than 20 minutes.
After that Windows desktop appears.

Some ideas, or points to check ?
I need to run some 32 bit legacy software and some old hardware (Scanner) that will not work with Win10.

Can Windows 7 32bit and XP be installed on newer PCs ?
If Yes ... How new ?     ....... How about an Intel i3 ?

I know that anything above 4gig memory is wasted on 32 bit systems.

(These PCs will not be connected to the internet or my LAN so security will not be an issue).
I just created a backup to acronis true image.  

The program created three TIB files.  

_v1 - (2g)
_v2- (4g)
_v3- (4g)

Any ideas why the program created 3 files?
