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.

Hello, I'm currently having issues with trying to update my computer to a newer Windows instalment. I was recently given an old-ish Windows XP computer by a family member and they completely wiped the computer and refreshed it back to its factory settings. Ever since I've received it, I've been trying to gain access to the internet so I can update its anti-virus as well as update it to more modern instalments of Microsoft Windows.

However every time I've tried connecting it, it says that the wireless wifi networks (that ARE in range) are apparently not or it has lost connection to them? Please help me, as I feel like I'm running in circles trying to find out how to fix it :(

Hi All,
We have a few XP VMs left around because of old applications that are still needed. When I run gpupdate on any of them, it takes a long time and a check of rsop says that the failure was due to "the clocks on the client and server machines are skewed". The problem is only occurring on XP machines. All of our Win7 and 10 machines are fine. I have verified that the system clocks are matched on the VMs and on the 2012 R2 DCs (also VMs), including identical time zones.

I discovered this issue after moving our WSUS server from a 2008 R2 VM to a 2012 R2 VM. None of the XP machines are checking in with the new server because they are not picking up the change in the Group Policy.

I have tried running "w32tm /resync /rediscover", with no change in the situation. I am not seeing any errors in the Event Log on the DC, but on the clients, I am getting events Userenv 1097 and 1030 along with the GP failures. I have also verified that the certs on the clients are valid. I had also updated the XP machines from the old WSUS server a few weeks ago, so they should be as current as XP can be, including the recent WannaCry update.

Hello there!

As you know WannaCry infection exploits Samba v1 protocol.
So its good to disable it.

What to do with old WinXP client machines who only use samba v1 to connect to Windows server?
What exactly does latest windows xp update do for this problem? Does it make smb v1 more secure?
Is there workaround to use smb v2 in winxp? Windows server is 2008 R2.

Thanks!

Hi,

I restored a ghost image as a vitual machine. Then I had to repair it with XP sp3 CD.

The problem is when I log in windows tell that it must be activated. I can choose yes or no. If no the xp disconnect. If yes I have an empty desktop and nothing happens and I can't do nothing.

Other information, I can start in safe mode and have full access but activation doesn't work in this mode.

I had this question after viewing Win7 x64 Host + Winxp guest + DOS Application Full Screen mode?.

I admit to being a dinosaur that actually misses MS DOS 6.2 and loved Windows XP. The reason being that all my financial records are on Lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheets (dating to 1984) and I am not going to try a transition all of that to Excel.  Lotus 1-2-3 ran beautifully full screen on my old XP machine but with MS refusing to keep XP alive I have transitioned to Win 7. The Lotus program will run in the XP mode of Win 7 but the screen is about postage stamp size regardless of how the  Window options are configured in the shortcut.  VMware is a bit better by allowing me to get to a 10" X 6" 20 line screen that is readable but I am still looking for a real "full screen" option.

"Aciddo" indicated that DOS programs ran full screen in Ver 7 of workstation after tweaking the options feature but I am using a 30 day evaluation version of Ver 12.5 and have had no success with the Ver 7 fix.  I have tried adjusting the screen resolutions in both host and guest to lesser values but that totally scrambles the desktop icons causing consternation upon exit from the DOS programs.   I have even tried DOSBOX but even though the screen goes to full the Lotus 1-2-3 program still is about 3" X 5" within the full screen.

There may be no viable fix for this problem but if anyone has ideas they will be welcome.
