  1. I have not noticed any YouTube video stutter using Waterfox. I have a Nvidia 1030 video card. This is with Windows 7 x64.
  2. Is Edge your default browser on your Windows 7 machine?
  3. No, it does not replace Internet Explorer. I have both. If you install Office XP or Office 2003, Internet Explorer has to be the default browser in order to successfully activate Office over the internet. I use Waterfox for most of my browsing. I dislike the lack of a menu bar in Edge. I have to use Edge to access one of my financial accounts, as I can no longer log on to it in Waterfox.
  4. Interesting. When I upgraded my computer, I decided to use a SATA SSD instead of NVME on my Asus Q170 motherboard. Since my mouse and keyboard are not USB, I did not have to attempt to integrate any drivers. Sounds like I saved myself a great deal of hassle.
  5. The August 2018 Windows 7 x64 ISO I got from Microsoft included the SHA-2 update. That saved me the trouble of having to install it prior to installing the Nvidia video driver.
  6. This article explains what patches need to be installed for SHA-2 support: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/2019-sha-2-code-signing-support-requirement-for-windows-and-wsus-64d1c82d-31ee-c273-3930-69a4cde8e64f
  7. In my attempts to install Windows 7 x64 on a new motherboard, I kept getting a Page File BSOD. I came across something on the web indicating this was a problem with the installer. After buying a 4GB DDR4 memory stick, I was able to install it on an Asus Q170 motherboard. Finally able to replace my Asus P8Q77. I don't remember the last time I installed Windows 7 x64 on the Asus P8Q77. Never had any troubles. Perhaps I only had 4GB of memory at the time. I was able to get a Windows 7 x64 iso through Microsoft that was current to August 2018. Saved a lot of time downloading patches. A few patches would not install until I manually installed KB4490628 and KB4523206. KB4474419 was already installed. Anyway, I now have a newer system, including 2 SSD hard drives.
  8. It's also over for Windows 8 & Windows 8.1. But this is not that big of deal. It's not like my Nvidia driver will stop working on October 2021. I'm not a gamer; I selected a GeForce GT 1030 for its low power consumption.
  9. I went to Waterfox Classic when I moved from Windows XP x64 to Windows 7 x64. It has a number of advantages for my purposes, such as being able to set my location exactly (With CenturyLink DSL, it otherwise gets reported as somewhere in northwestern Ohio, which prevents me from using Locast Cleveland).
  10. I had to install both kb4474419 and kb4490628 before I could install the Nvidia video driver. As far as issues, I have not experienced the OP's issues, nor any other issues.
  11. I installed both kb4474419 and kb4490628 for the SHA-2 update.
  12. For Windows 7, you should use Microsoft Security Essentials, not Windows Defender. Microsoft is still providing definition updates for MSE on Windows 7. I just had MSE install today's update as I was typing this response.
  13. I have not noticed this. Windows 7 x64 is slower to start up and respond than Windows XP x64 was. Also, Office 2003 seems to be slower to respond than Office XP was when I used Windows XP x64. Windows XP x64 was considerably faster to respond than Windows XP, and much more stable.
  14. Microsoft Security Essentials will be supported on Windows 7 until 2023: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/what-is-microsoft-security-essentials-c25ad47a-7d15-8072-1438-b07dffcbbb20 Windows Update still provides the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool once a month. My Windows 7 x64 system receives both updates without problem.
  15. Black Viper has a guide to services configuration: http://www.blackviper.com/ But increasing your ram to 4 GB would help a lot.
