    Using Windows 7 Will Get You Hacked?

    As long as the boxes don't share Creds, that's a good path, it follows the https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/security/compass/overview Secure Access Workstation model. But if they share any credentials, you have broken the model. Running with Windows 7 on the internet is a dangerous move, due...

    Linus Torvalds On The Importance Of ECC RAM, Calls Out Intel's "Bad Policies" Over ECC

    If I could get ECC I would, back 22 years ago, when I owned my own computer store, I put ECC memory in everything. (God I'm old) It was more expensive, but man so many fewer support calls. If I could get it, I would just for the peace of mind. The bad part of his argument however; is ECC doesn't...

    How to be sure what disk is ssd during installation Windows 10. Disk 1 or Disk 2?

    Because it's following the boot spec. I haven't owned setup code for over 17 years, so take this with a grain of salt. (I work on the Windows Defender team again, now) The spec says to put all boot details on disk 0 according to the bios spec from way back. Now Bios and UEFI are a lot smarter...

    BSOD in W7 + Event Log + minidump

    That memory dump shows a paging in error of Wininit.exe. This is usually caused by failing Mass Storage devices in the chain. (mobo, hdd, etc) Your event log entry is another driver failing to page in, your video driver. Have you ran a chkdsk recently and see if there are errors? This posting...

    How do i increase Windows limit to remove apps error of "1024 sockets"?

    Using Windows 7 Will Get You Hacked?

    The problem with Windows 7 is that it doesn't have the protections of newer windows to make exploiting harder, as well if there is a patch for vuln for supported windows, it's trivial to reverse engineer and try it on Windows 7. Not being direct connect to the internet prevents people coming...

    Can windows 10 be installed on a new chromebook?

    Can windows 10 be installed on a new chromebook?

    If it's 3 years, reboot that server! Respectfully, allow the old ilinks to recycle and not have vulnerable software running. (That also implies you haven't patched the kernel in forever which probably could use a patch or two in three years) Anyways, just my opinion from doing Incident Response...

    Are there any "mainstream" 4TB+ NVMe drives in the pipeline?

    When somebody was closing 4 TB u.2 drives on Ebay, bought one. Perfect, has speeds equiv to a 9700 Samsung drive because it is one, but gobs of space. With mklink you can join 2 drives together transparently to you and apps on your machine. (That's how my onedrive is on my slow spinner drives)

    Any idea how much the 3900 not X is going for?

    Cool, I haven't had a computer store in almost 20 years, but try to keep my head in the game. If I could have found a 3900 no X, for cheap, I would have bought one for my 1800X rig. :p Thank you for explaining it to me Zedicus, that makes sense.

    Any idea how much the 3900 not X is going for?

    I just had a PC built for my wife, was going to do a Ryzen 5 for her, and they had a free upgrade to the ryzen 3900 non X for the same price. (Which kinda tells me they must be pretty cheap, and yet I can't find a reseller anywhere)

    AMD: Sorry, No Official Ryzen Drivers for Windows 7

It didn't ship with Control Flow Guard, CredGuard to protect creds from stealing, let alone the Trusted...

As to 2GB of ram and X64, as most have said, X64 is definitely more secure, but it also doesn't have the massive perf hit people are talking...
