    Hello all,
    I am hoping that one of you guys can possibly help me. I have just finished setting up (Clean install) of a friends aged Samsung R60plus Laptop. (Specs attached).
    All is working well in fact it is quite snappy considering it's age.
    However I am having trouble getting a Browser installed that runs OK.
    Have tried a lot of obscure browsers Pale moon ,Maxthon.Slimbrowser etc: but the only one I can get running is K-Meleon.
    However I dont know how to configure it properly and add the Addons etc:and am unable to sign up to the forum.

    Could anyone please help me:
    a) Advise on which K-Meleon build would be best
    b) How to best configure for this system
    c)Advise on Java and Java scripts etc:

    Thanks in advance,
    Nick

    MyPal 28.14.2 (most current version) is what I use in Windows XP Professional SP3 32-bit (integrated with post-EOL security updates to May 2019).
    https://github.com/Feodor2/Mypal/releases
    It should work fine in Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 32-bit or 64-bit.

    Hi again,
    Although Mypal browser working well it tends to 'hang' quite a lot although usually getting there in the end. Is this something I should expect using Vista and MyPal or can it be improved?
    (I have latitude Adbocker running by the way.)
    Nick

    PS: Cant seem to get Skype to work at all.Which version/s would be recomended for my config of SP2 and MyPal.

    Nick.

    First of all you need to install Windows Vista SP1 and SP2 and also all updates to make the OS run fine
    Service Packs: https://www.mediafire.com/file/9cd6kajrc15j3fs/file
    Updates: https://www.mediafire.com/file/nfibc31eu4q2qn2/file (the updates are easy to install, run each bat from Admin CMD and let it finnish, it will restart automatically and the run the second one, restarts and run the third one, here you have a video to make everithing easier)
    Vista Updates:

    Then i reccomend the Mypal Web browser, but K-Meleon is good too

    Java 8, last version supports Vista officially, so use the main page but best is to use offline installer, online one fails often
    Java: https://javadl.oracle.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=244066_89d678f2be164786b292527658ca1605
