Windows 7: Windows 7 error reporting

Internet Explorer cannot be uninstalled because it shares or provides some code with Windows, but it can and should be "muted". Windows Media Player is nowhere as sophisticated as VLC, takes up a lot of space and may generate some unnecessary and confusing Windows events in the Viewer.

There are two very good options to replace FF 43 and not lose preferred features. One option is Pale Moon based on legacy Firefox and is faster, and the other option is Firefox ESR. (Extended Support Release) current release is 52.7.3. Both are up to date with the latest changes and still use legacy extensions. You find all Firefox versions for all operating systems 32 & 64 bits, and all languages here.

In the Google Chromium family of browsers, Vivaldi is very fast and very nice, but is still in the process of adding some finishing touches.

Try a new browser, clear the old Event Viewer events, reboot and then post the remaining errors.

As for the Event Viewer warnings (yellow) not all are errors.

Thanks for all your advices.
I first start deleting the old Firefox 43 and install completely new version 59.0.2 (i did several tests on this version and works OK)
Eventualy switching to another browser, is very tricky, for i dont know about all these other ones, so i think i leave it at that part.

That is an excellent choice. It is a very good and fast browser. I should have made it clearer in my previous post that the reason I recommended alternatives, was because Firefox 57 and greater (aka Quantum) does not meet my needs. When they are met, I will be using it as well. Sorry.

Dear Ineuw,

Thanks for all your tips and advices, i started already with Firefox 59.0.2 and at this moment all is working fine.

My early concerns was that there was an Firefox-service or so, which was connected to the Internet for looking if i was using an old Firefox-version.
Despite this service was executed before i even started the Firefox-browser

It would be better to understand for me, if i had known the name of that service, what looked at Internet
I did some research for that service-name with the application: autoruns.exe but i did not find it at all
I think you also could not tell met that service-name?
It would have cost me not so much trouble to find out wat the problems where of the events

Best recards.

ariespaan, you are welcome and glad that I was able to help.

There is no "autorun.exe" or "autoruns.exe" as a part of the Windows OS, but check the folder C:\Windows\Prefetch and you may find a FIREFOX.EXE-XXXXXXXX.pf file. Move it to a \temp folder (or delete it) and I recommend to disable Windows Superfetch and Prefetch, even if you have no SSD. This link gives information as to how to disable both, and they can be re-enabled whenever you think it affects performance. http://www.thewindowsclub.com/disabl...h-prefetch-ssd

Also recommend to download and install the "Search Everything" file explorer from https://www.voidtools.com/ This software has it's own file indexing system, does not rely on Windows Explorer file index, lists every object and type on the computer very fast! Look at their "Search" menu option how to find what you would be looking for.

Windows Error Reporting using lots of resources and bandwidth
Dispite turning WER in services and turning off the scheduler entry, wermgr.exe still loads lots of processes and clogs up the network. It seems to be mostly due to an error with WMC which dumps gigabytes of logs. So any ideas?
