@lupincho - I tried that, but the NoScript button didn't show in the collection to choose from. Thanks anyway.

comment Noscript button missing in Firefox
@Nam - I'm not sure about that. The add-ons manager says NoScript is enabled, so I presume it will be that that blocks the scripts. It's just not visible. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Thanks for your reactions anyway.

Thanks. I wasn't aware of the Amazon reader, guess I should have been. I'll try that one.

Neither of these let you run Windows 7's calculator on an XP machine, as OP asked.

@HaydnWVN - The image server seems to have suffered from hickups, but it should be solved

comment XP and Windows 7 PCs no longer on speaking terms
@HaydnWVN - They have different names. They're on the same subnet (192.168.1.*), and have the same subnet mask (255.255.255.0). I have folders shared with "full control" to "everyone", but that's of little use if the other PC doesn't show on the network in the first place :-(. I might have thought there's something basic missing, but it did work after installation, and I didn't change any of the network settings. Thanks for your thoughts.

@HaydnWVN - typing the IP address directly in the explorer address bar results in a timeout error (cannot connect). I can ping the other PC, though.

"solved" by rebooting. I still have the feeling that this is not the proper answer, nor a proper solution.

That's why I say useful for some people. BTW, what's "NP"? Nondeterministic polynomial? Nurse practitioner? :-)

comment Permissions for apps in Windows 7
@techie007 - Like I commented to an answer to your linked question: UAC is useful for some people, but for many it's just a nuisance. And like I also said I've never had security problems, on 2 machines running XP, without UAC, for 10 years.

comment Disabling UAC on Windows 7?
I'm perfectly able to take care of my computer's security myself. Before switching to Windows 7 I had XP on two machines for 10 years, and never had security problems. UAC may be useful for beginners, for more advanced users it's just a nuisance.

IIRC the 2116 was a standard for 16k, don't recall the prefix though.

comment IE9 reliability issues
Seems be fixed. At least I could visit several sites and IE is still there after a couple of hours; with GPU rendering it would crash within a minute or so.
