  1. I personally myself just only use "m.youtube.com" now since those damn firefox add-ons no longer work anymore. I dont really remember how i got here but, i think the first time i went to mobile there was a link that would let me switch to this "m/mobile" site. and now it's always permenate with firefox. It's not the "greatest" solution. but it sure is a hell of a lot faster than the plain regular stupid youtube. There are a few in-convieneces with it though which kind of sucks, but not too bad. Like i cant ever click "read more" on comments in videos, cause it always opens a small bo
  2. I remember that happening to me in the past before, about the stupid .NET runtime stuff, sometimes i'd have 100% CPU constantly from "something" and the hard drive "grinding" like crazy nonstop ...and it was most certainly this ".net optimize" thing causing the hard drive to never stop.... just disabling those .net things in the services stuff stopped it for good, never been a problem ever since. This was many many years ago though. And yea i always look at process explorer much more often than plain regular windows task manager. you can simply "hover your mouse" over all those svchosts.e
  3. My computer is a laptop also. Dell Latitude D620 - and i was able to replace the hard drive a few years ago with a SSD too. i have the Samsung 850 Evo (just 10 below the one you said) and it's working fine with windows XP. I just literally used one of those "clone hard drive" programs when i first bought the SSD. I dont remember what program i used. But i "cloned" the hard drive to the new fresh out of the box 850 Evo, and then after setting up the correct "alignment" thing or something like that, it worked just fine in this laptop. Did not want to go through the headache or re-installing
  4. Oh so its only just related to stuff requiring internet access ? So im not going to get any like "program failed to start" popups or anything like that with IE or anything else ? That was the kind of thing that really was in my mind. the thought of something like programs not working or something. well IE is the only thing i can think of for anything internet related nothing else, i think. Well i use MIRC for talking in 1 chat room, and linked to twitch.tv stream chats. And streamlink for watching twitch streams. those aren't microsoft-only programs at least. I thought other things w
  5. That certificate thing for me said it's at around 4:25 PM later this afternoon. i only found so far that it was listed directly on internet explorer.exe when right clicking on it then checking the "digitinal signatures" tab but i am still worried though because of that one website saying "all major microsoft services and processes"
  6. So, this forum is going to stop working for us all once that day arrives, if i understand correctly ?? I only use firefox 52.9.1 -im real worried.
  7. what i mean is, is there another way to actually scan for updates i dont already have if regular windows update and "mini update tool" are no longer able to ? assuming there even is any "trusted and safe" website or program to do so.
  8. Hey there. I wanted to ask, if the windows update site is no longer ever able to provide updates from years back, how do we get them now ?? Is it even humanly possible anymore through some other program or site or anything ? "not" including the "update catalog" site that has everything manually you can search for. What i mean is for example i get a new PC or hard drive with XP, or something similiar. How will i be able to know what updates i might or might not be missing up to the final ones in April 2014 ?? I wouldnt have a clue what "kb numbers" i dont yet have up to 2014. So i wouldn
  9. I finally got it to work. I've been fighting with this for seriously hours on end for the past 3 days straight until i finally got through. I'd always get some type of error like that "non utf8 encoding" one above ... python line errors this and that ... when i finally tried just the "install streamlink" thing, i'd get some error about failed to install iso-639 "import version" and "no module named iso-639" ...then i manually got the iso 639 from the py website, and put the directories in the python37\lib\site-packages\ folder ...try again, and it actually installed. But with more erro
  10. this is really fustrating. well that person's folder that i downloaded that i linked to specifically ..well it already has a get-pip.py file ...and the pip.exe is in the "scripts" folder. but i did the python get-pip.py - and it says it's version 19.1.1 - so that's good right ? then i tried going to the scripts folder, and do the version test, like that site says in the tutorial ...but it gives this error about no encoding ? All of them say the same thing - pip3, pip3.7, and wheel...i dont know what to do next.
  11. Hello again, i was hoping to get a little bit of assistance with installing the latest streamlink 1.7.0, for watching Twitch streams in an exteneral player (in my case, Media Player Classic HC) - First of all, i have an older version one of the developers made for Windows XP back in 2017, which came with a pre-bundled python 3.4.4 found in this topic: https://github.com/streamlink/streamlink/pull/680 It's worked just fine for me, no problems up until only a week ago when Twitch changed their API system, causing streamlink to always return a "404 gone" or not found error from the twi
  12. Hmm i see. i looked at the changelog about what they did between .2 and .5 and it's just "update codec tweak tool" on them ... and "update iacros" which i did not install anyways. nothing specific about updating certain files or bugfixes except in earlier versions. So prob wont matter. :( jumper - wow interesting info, still no way to ever find out what it was ?? i was monitoring that debug window minimized in the taskbar for all those months, and 1 thing i noticed is 2 dll's always load whenever i open anything like notepad, paint, ...almost anything really. but they always "unload" apro
  13. Ucyborg - I doubt any hardware is causing it, this is a laptop by the way. I've never had any sort of "hard lock" or freeze's where the system would be completely frozen and forced holding power button to turn off for example. "not" talking about BSOD. And speaking of that, i never have had any "unexpected" BSOD's before for as long as i can remember, only if it's something i know would make it happen like a PC game i cant play cause of this having a "integrated" intel graphics when i'd need nvidia/amd - which is impossible to have for this laptop. But otherwise I don't get any BSOD for r
  14. I wondered about that "internet open url" but how am i supposed to even know what caused it ? Like i said it couldnt have been the ntdll.dll cause that's not ever been touched... and that article you linked i dont understand anything about it since it's all "coding" related ...not talking about any issues or problems or crashes...so i dont have a clue what i'm supposed to look for then. Does that windbg have any other more advanced commands for seeing exactly what file or whatever those question marks were referring to ?? i dont know anything about debugging stuff besides just the "analy
  15. Doesn't seem like it cause that number is at the end of the ntdll line as a "hex" value like the other lines. 0174fccc 7c92a600 077444f6 04d069f0 00000000 ntdll!RtlpWaitOrTimerCallout+0x73 I have MalwareBytes AntiMalware and i've scanned with that several times this year with the latest defintion update(s) since this first started, and i've always come up clean (0 detections) everytime. :|
  16. yea theres those worthless question marks. but i mean, it cant possibly be ntdll right ? cause that's not ever been touched since i've had this computer around 2010. it wasnt ever modified or anything like that. https://i.imgur.com/Uq4Eyb9.png i also tried searching for like ID 454, but there was no such thing in all the running exe's at the time, explorer was process ID 3916 it said, in the "process list" text file.
  17. yea.. well,i just went ahead and uploaded that crash dump file to mediafire. i dont know why it has to be such a ridiculously huge size like this. I dont know anything about coding and all that stuff so all i ever knew what to try was "analyze -v" ..and getting stupid question marks as i showed in that screenshot earlier. http://www.mediafire.com/file/ygwvkqu3ekgok6w/explorer+crash.dmp/file
  18. I mentioned already in one of my earlier replies in feburary that i checked with that shellex program before and didnt have anything at all that would be suspect. so that didnt help at all.
  19. Sorry to bump this topic after so many months, but may i possibly get some help still on this ?? I had that debugger program sitting in the taskbar, and it took almost 4 months until explorer.exe crashed again, so that i finally got a "2nd chance violation" crash dump file from it. I attempted to load it in the "windbg" thing and followed the instructions on just viewing what the problem was, and even that doesnt tell me anything at all. It "still" didnt say exactly what dll or file caused it, and it had a bunch of question marks on all the values. what the hell!! how is this possible!!
  20. I wouldnt have the first clue how to make them show up.
  21. huh, did something break or get screwed up in .1 that was not broken in .0 ?? (about the horrible freeze/lag/screen flicker) and yea, same about the icons graphic, not showing in chrome.
  22. Hmm, i got a question about discord since someone decided to make this topic. So i have the firefox 52.9.1 like everyone else here. And it loads just fine and all but...holy freaking crap it lags like utter hell and i do not understand why. I've got literally all of the important "text/appearance" options, animations, etc whatever all turned off in my profile settings, but it doesnt seem to help though. What i mean is, just clicking on anything like a server icon, profile name, typing messages, anything will literally freeze firefox dead for 10 to 20 seconds until i can do anything, and t
  23. how do i view any youtube videos on this place ? never heard of it before today until your post but... i tried like 5 different websites "not named" invidious on that instances list...and every single time it says "No compatible source was found for this media." on the videos... that doesnt happen on youtube or any other place as far as im aware. What sort of video format is it expecting from firefox 52.9 ?? :|
  24. I've never once updated the magician software ever before, and not the ssd's own firmware either, it says the firmware is already the latest apparently. And i just originally installed the software straight from the CD which says uhhh.. version when hovering mouse over the exe
  25. I'm on XP Pro with a laptop...and i have a Samsung Evo 850 SSD on here for a few years now, and it's been just fine for me. Never have had any sort of problems with it yet. I run that "trim" thing on the Samsung magician software once in awhile. and tempature seems pretty good for it (the SSD) ..usually is always at about 102 degrees on average, 108 max on load.
