You may not need to uninstall the nVidea drivers but instead disable the CPU sucking unneeded background processes the drivers install.

There's probably at least one service as well as a couple of background helper (cough, gag) utilities.

Could you be more specific? I'm a bit of a novice and I don't get all the technical language.

PS: Can the fact that I switched from a 32-bit Windows Vista OS to a 64-bit Windows 7 OS be an issue?

Glad you are sorted - I know how maddening it is! If you have a poor wireless connection - when speeds get really low (eg due to weather conditions) - it will cause a couple of seconds of mild stuttering on Youtube etc (as you describe)

No 2 on my list - maybe I ought to elevate it to No.1 to try!
Test with Anti-virus/Security Prog off (then write severe email to (non)software perpetrators for driving you up the wall.)

Doubtful that the 32-64 bit switch is an issue.

When you uninstalled the nVidia drivers, Microsoft probably defaulted back to the basic nVidia drivers that ship with Windows 7.

The full package from nVidia installs several background utilities/services that often muck things up, what's more aggravating is that they are generally not needed for normal use.

How are things working now with the Microsoft drivers.

No, when I uninstall the NVIDIA drivers, Windows installs the VGA display adapter or something, which is pretty crap since it doesn't support many programs and services.

For the moment, I installed another type of driver from NVIDIA, which was compatible only with Windows Vista but nonetheless works perfectly. So far, I've had the problem occur only once, when the system was way too overloaded and I had to restart it. If I encounter it again frequently, I'll come back and let you know.

I've already enconutered the problem a few times, so much for that.

You wee talking about disabling the CPU sucking unneeded background processes the drivers install. Could you be a bit more specific?

Sure, right click in a blank spot on the Taskbar, select "Start Task Manager".

Select the processes tab.
Do -not- check the box in the lower left "Show Processes for all Users".
If it's selected, de-select.

You will see a list of background processes running.

Are there any that begin with nv
There may be only one.

If so, select and then click on the End Process button.

Let's get that far.

Might be good if you can post a list of the background processes you have running.

Here's a screenshot of Processes.



I tried ending the nvvsvc.exe process, but Windows says "The operation could not be ended. Acess is denied".

Are you logged in as administrator?

Here's some info on the process....

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
nvvsvc.exe is Vista service installed NVIDIA drivers for graphics cards (or graphics cards based on an NVIDIA chipset). This service is used by some of the specific advanced features of your NVidia graphics card, in particular overclocking, overriding of the refresh rate for OpenGL games, and dual monitor display. This service has a history under Windows 2000/XP for being responsible for various system slowdowns and excessive memory usage. If you do not use any of the advanced features, it is recommended that you disable the service by setting it to disabled in the Startup Mode of the Services tab.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Services is located in Control Panel/Administrative Tools.

You have a lot of stuff running in the background, it's never a surprise to me that machines don't work correctly.

Hopefully, all that stuff isn't running right after booting the machine.

My PC has 7 processes running a couple of minutes after a restart.
Spent many years setting up PC's for pro audio use, they need to be run lean and mean if possible.
