Should also works, yes.
The idea is blocking web crawlers to visit the link.

You might as well post it like that:
drive.google .com/open?id=1G-U_plr-xHGxNZNL XoFiw4I9PkTQEwvz (remove the two spaces)
As the https is automatically added by the browser once pasted in the address bar.
I've added a space in the unique ID as well for a better security.

i found 'explorer.exe' error.

when i create a new file using "right click --> New --> Text Document" ..... windows explorer crash.

this crash bug also happen while copying (using Ctrl+C) file with extension .bak, .apk
... even in Windows XP Safe Mode

is it possible to fix using "sfc/scannow" ?
it ask for Windows XP installer CD, and will replace windows files with original SP3 files

The way I understood it, and it has been a while since I've run XP, if you run sfc /scannow from within your running SP4 system, any files that are replaced are pulled from files stored during the OS installation process. If you installed SP4, then replaced files should be those from SP4. The only reason that SP3 files would be used is if you boot from your XP SP3 CD and run sfc /scannow from it. Otherwise, where would it find SP3 file unless you supply them? Isn't that the way it's supposed to work? Or am I wrong?

Cheers and Regards

hy bphlpt, ghost,,, thanks for your respond.

i just try to edit registry and manually put new 'Key' in 'HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT'.
I simply manually create new key ".apk" and ".bak",,, and define some note in 'value data'

and it SOLVED now !!!

maybe it bug from Windows XP, ,,,, i think 'Windows Explorer' crashed because can not identify what kind of type files.

Weird bugs but easy to solved... thanks again everyone

I'm having an issue with Windows Update constantly prompting me to install KB4486463, even after it supposedly already successfully installed. Not sure if it would be related to the Gh0stPak at all. I tried uninstalling the update from Add/Remove Programs, but after it reinstalls, it goes right back to prompting me to install it again.

Someone else was having this same issue, in another forum, but had nothing to do with Gh0stpack. I will look for it later and see if I can recommend a fix ... BBL

What kind of CPU does your computer have?

The KB4486463 this file will only be used on multi-processor systems (multiple cores or processors). So if you have a single core cpu, its not needed and thus you can HIDE this update in WU list!

If you are trying to install this when the operating system is in a VIRTUAL MACHINE, then it will be viewed as a single core.

Let we hope that @harkaz will release new version of its 'Service Pack 4' that will include all updates/hotfixes released till April 9, 2019 - the EOL date of Windows XP Embedded which is the last EOL of all other XP-based OSes.

I concur, but as there has been no "reliable and smart KernelEx" development, we may only expect that harkaz "will create a post-SP4 update pack/post-SP4 live installer (two separate files) at Windows XP second EOL - in May 2019" as he has stated.
