27339 Screen Capturing
I need some good free screen-capturing software for windows which records audio too. In need of a quick response.

I'm using Windows 7 if that makes any difference.

OBS studios works well enough though it's quite heavy on HD stapace and resources.

Nvidia shadowplay does the job for me. I suppose you need an Nvidia card though.

You had the time to (presumably) search for the thread image but not to do a basic query for a common and well solved problem? Incredible.

You want OBS.

Windows 7 is now EoL. I would not advise using it any more if you're connected to the internet.

I've overwritten sensitive data and logged out of all my accounts. I won't be making any more purchases online. Barring a stolen email password, what could actually happen - My system becomes infested with malware and begins mining crypo currancies for other people?

I'm planning to VM-ise all my existing Win7 (and XP, and 98, and 95) machines, and will reimage the ones that make sense to Mint or something. The ones with ancient hardware that I need to keep working will stay on their airgapped network.
I'm figuring that a backed-up win7 box running a maintained browser (and the software I actually want to use) will be good for quite a while yet. I've got quite used to backing up as if machines are going to get pwned / catch fire over the years, so I don't see win7's EOL as much of a change.
(New-to-me server for VMs is coming later this week. Once upon a time, 32 2.4GHz cores and 512G of RAM was truly unattainable. Now it's £1300 and a bit on the power bill. If that annoys me, I might get something more efficient for machines I want up all the time, and shuffle VMs around as needed.)
Quite looking forward to it, though, it's got to be 5 years since I bought a PC.
Question is, can I get by with Pi4s for thin clients / random machines? Would be nice, if so.

I still have Win7, no money or technical knowledge and would quite like to keep the setup I'm comfortable with. What do I do?

>>27349 Make sure all your stuff is backed up, don't run MS browsers, run a hosts list to discourage some baddie advertisers?
If your machine gets raped, wipe, reinstall, restore, go round again. If the frequency gets too high for you, do something different?

I know 7 has been out ages, it still feels pretty soon to be ending support though. Vast swathes of the private and public sectors are still using 7, even still XP in a lot of cases. There's plenty of use in businesses for those operating systems, when they're still perfectly adequate for their job and much more lightweight than 10, meaning old hardware stays serviceable. And that's not even considering the fact that 7 was only the last real OS they made- Who the fuck was ever using 8 or any of its variants in the first place? Who ever willingly made the switch to Vista? Nobody except clueless consumers with no actual choice, buying Samsung laptops.

I'm predicting the NHS is in for a good few scandals out of this anyway.

I was very frustrated when I pirated a copy of Windows 10, spent a while backing up my stuff, downloading everything I'd need on the new setup, then upgrading...and all my files were still exactly where they were and everything bar the interface was the same! I was really looking forward to a fresh install, so I just wiped everything anyway and installed a fresh copy of W10.

I don't want to sound culty, but it's not that bad. Unless you need it for legacy gaming, you can dual boot (tell the PC to split your harddrive in two, keep your W7 installation, then install W10 on the other bit). I'm happy to talk you through this, there are also guides available.

It's just not worth keeping W7 as your primary OS, and if you say you have 'no technical knowledge' but know what a hosts list is, then you're either understating yourself or you're EXACTLY the kind of person who is very much at risk from using an outdated OS.

Win10 is absolutely fine and I'd go as far as saying it's an improvement on 7, at least in the way I use it.

And there are STILL ways to upgrade from 7 to 10 for free and end up with a legit copy.

Did you buy a legit copy of Windows 7 or pirate it, or what? I think it depends on that. If you have an existing license then you're golden afaik, otherwise you can just be a twat like me and pirate an OS from a dodgy site...

It was probably a legit copy back in the day I just didn't want to update to their bullshit.

You can still get a legit copy of 10 even if you pirated 7.

Here: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/you-can-still-upgrade-to-windows-10-for-free-heres-how/

Also there are ways to get the ESU updates for 7 without paying for them too.

What about the telemetry and the ads?

Officially, Microsoft stopped providing free upgrades from Win7 a couple of years back. It was a nuisance, at the time laptop refurbishment was a significant part of my business. Apparently legit Win7 keys may still work for Win10 installation media, but they didn't when I tried.

Yes it is. It just comes back after every update.

There's many different ways to automate the process though.

I use ShutUp10, it's got quite fine-grained control over various privacy-related settings, but it needs to be run after each update. There's probably an auto-updating solution.
