I don't mean to intrude But I noted you haven't added Task Scheduler to the list of
things to check.

In regards to 2 GB sticks of DDR4, I found this-

https://www.amazon.com/SK-Hynix-Desk...ateway&sr=8-15

There was a bunch of it at e-bay.

The idea behind the clean boot is to see if there is a service or startup software running in the background which is causing the problem.

-My Gigabyte MBO doesn't support Any 2gb DDR4!- Any suggestions on a good MBO?

-I won't do a networked clean boot, without an active AV!
All my problems started after installing Bitdefender IS AV (In the cloud Sucks!)!?
Any suggestions on a good/fast... AV, that also protects against Ransomware?

What is the model number for your motherboard? Any motherboard that supports DDR4 should support 2GB sticks.

If you afraid of running the clean boot without AV, pull the plug on your internet while you're running it. Also, create a system restore point before doing the clean boot. You should be covered.

I didn't look through the whole thread but it seems this is the first time you mentioned Bitdefender. AV programs are big these days on including firewalls which can slow things down. You could use the free Microsoft Security Essentials.

You have so many antivirus and security features that they can be conflicting.
My suggestions are:
- Uninstall ALL the antivirus and security features and use Microsoft Security Essentials.
- Disabling essential services can make Windows unusable. Try to enable those you have disabled.

- Can't see any reason to disable IE 11, although Roy is the Windows expert. I won't ever recommend Chrome as it is memory resident and spy everything you do (online and offline). I use Firefox.



You probably don't have one issue causing problems, but many issues that together will make it quite impossible to solve your issues.

You have spent so much time trying to fix problems that I suggest you to do a repair-install
It will reinstall Win 7 keeping your data and programs. For the updates, use Simplix.
My suggestion is to set Services - Windows Update - Manual and on WU page set it to Never check.
Then run UpdatePack7R2
Simplix is a single file (750MB) that contain all updates since Win 7 released up to date. It has all security and non security updates without the trash (telemetry and tracking). Very good.
Then run WU manually to find updates for Office etc and decide witch one to install.

To uninstall the telemetry, run cmd file to uninstall those KB files.
kb_spy.cmd.txt
Rename it as KB_Spy.cmd and run it.

-My Gigabyte MBO is a- GA-B150M-D3H GSM. I called their support, and they don't make a MBO that supports
2gb DDR4. I also ran the Crucial memory finder..., and it only listed 4gb.

-I tried MSE AV- I didn't like not being able to control settings..., and a full scan took hours!

Install a couple of 4 GB sticks.

There's still no reason you can't run a clean boot safely.

Hi

32bit version only supports/runs 4GB max.

Thanks. I realize that it will only address 4 GB but it doesn't prevent having more than that installed. Technically, I don't know how it addresses the physical memory in that situation or if there would be any benefit.

Hi @wither 2

It basically identifies it BUT ignores the extra, and more importantly WILL NOT use it.
MS put some kind of block on it

DDR2 DDR3 and DDR4 are all different - unless the motherboard supports it - it will not "accept it"
note my lappy accepts 2/3 but not 4 it depends on how the BIOS has been set-up
Retail MBs are more likely to have the option for 3/4. Older OEM lappys like mine, and me are basically out of date.
