    Even simpler, just clone the current system partition to the target location and you have a fully functioning backup (barring any boot configuration changes you might have to make).

    There is a loophole sometimes in that WU can update itself automatically; so, it checks, finds an update for itself and installs it, that in turn allows it to switch to automatic updates for...

    Three strikes for UAC; the day I take the time to accommodate UAC by doing everything mentioned in the article; well, I'll just get a Chromebook instead!

    Yes, because XP is waiting half the time for a non-responsive processor maybe.

    If this happens on reboots, there are a number of programs that do exactly that (restore to previous state). Returnil is the one I'm familiar with but there's also Deep Freeze and probably some...

    I suspect the VM cannot implement by proxy what the hack tells XP to do implicitly...unless you've seen examples of it working on a VM.

    There is a platform update that kind of goes along with I.E. 10, either of which have been known to wreck havoc with the graphics subsystems; black screens, blue screens and such. Mainly it affected...

    Yes, I can't stand the scatterbrained layout of W8 myself but the time to hesitate would have been before leaving shore so to speak. Gotta sail on now or you'll be in the horse latitudes forever.

    Any recent decent combo should work fine...you just happened to hit just to the rear of the work/not work range for Windows 7. I have 3 or 4 systems running Win 7 okey dokey from 2004 to early 2005....

    Yes, brilliant as Steve is, he should have updated SpinRite a long time ago now with the option to recover the data to another drive and most definitely NOT merely move it to good-for-now sectors on...

    Yes, nothing is a replacement for system images but many times one doesn't need the double sawed off shotgun approach when a six shooter will suffice. For some reason it always clicks perfectly in my...

    First thing I would try is a system restore back to when it was working. Other than that, generally it doesn't sound like a good idea to make uncommon format images compatible in explorer itself...

    If you build a UBCD4Win disc, there is a utility on there that can be used to force a Restore point with choice of any set of restore folders. I occasionally run across an XP system that won't...

    How many computers do you have it on? I just checked a half dozen systems and don't see anything going on with ToDo. I don't do any sort of file backup with it though, just imaging and cloning of...

    Yes, the fact that imaging to an external backup drive was mentioned led me to assume there was not a spare internal drive already installed <my fault>.

    I use EaseUS ToDo Free by the way; just two...

    Yes, but, then, why is he all fired up? The long-term, broader aspects are as about as exciting as watching paint dry right now.

    Me either but this might be the most effusive article without seemingly solid support that I've ever read from Paul. Seems to me he's either jumping the gun on an educated guess on where the preview...

    Actually workgroup name doesn't even matter [much] on XP systems. I use workgroup names to separate groups of dedicated PCs containing both XP and Win7. Whereas Win7 will lump all workgroups together...

    I've had the same "progression" of increased non-functionality with media players specifically (seems to be a trait) going from XP to 7 to 8. On 7 I finally figured out it was installing some...

    For the shares on the W7 systems, I think if you set the security and share settings Usergroups to Everyone and continued without password prompts, you'd have access.
