I feel unwanted (Sometimes) !
« on: February 07, 2015, 02:19:07 PM »

I have just reconstituted an XP laptop, which works perfectly. BUT - I can't get on to the forum.  >:( The system keeps telling me I haven't got authority to enter. I can get to the "front page", but no further.  :( I have no trouble on my Kindle, this Win 7 Machine or my new Win 8.1 machine. I'm sure that this has come up before, but as far as I can see was in connection with general access from any computer. Has anyone any ideas? I suspect there may be some XP setting to alter. ???
Thanks,

Chris B.

Is it possible that when you reconstituted the laptop you added too much water? How long since it was freeze dried?  >:E

What version of IE (Internet Explorer) are you using on the XP laptop?

I just dumped a tower running XP. I have the installation disc etc, but it's no longer supported. The tower is too old and feeble to take Win 7 Professional, a system I like
Have you tried switching it off, and switching it back on again  >:E

There may be compatibility issues with older versions of IE. If XP has been installed from the base package then an old IE may be in place that may have difficulty with the site.

Hi

I'm sure that MS stopped support for XP a while ago, alas like cars when the producer/manufacturer believe there is little profit in supporting outdated software.

I still have an old XP 8 Yrs Old Laptop which works well, SO LONG as I DO NOT try to use the Internet.

Use your shinny Win *.1 and copy what info you want via that.

UNTIL Win 10.0 makes it's arrival later this year, and don't be in a hurry to download it like all software producers the first efforts are full of bugs,  just ask Apple

Hope you can sort it out.

Regards  Dave J

I've just managed to get in using IE6 (Yikes!) on the XP machine. No problems. So I'll have another go using Chrome. Fingers crossed!

Not both then - good.

I just tried again on Chrome, thus -

"Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /index.php on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request"

Does this help? (At all?)

Don't throw away your old XP machine - put Linux on it and give it a new lease of life.
Xubuntu is a good choice if you don't know Linux well and the machine doesn't have a lot of memory.
(three Linux laptops in the house now, two bought second hand and one upgraded from XP)

Chris, I have two Dell D600's recently distilled from 3 knackered ones, neither clean disc re-installs and both using XP SP3 and Firefox browser, I had a similar issue getting back on the forum and did what Lester said regarding ruthless cookie & history deletion and all was well (well other than for other melnetters I guess)

Tis not widely known but Micro$oft implanted a rather nasty little 'feature' in one of their XP updates which makes them run like treacle before stalling entirely, anyone who has suffered this, PM me for a likely cure, I still rate XP for 'pedestrian' spec boxes that the skip dippers amongst us still get good use from.
