(I'm not sure if this is going to be the correct forum to post in, so please move it if it's not)

 

I've recently upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 through the free update.  I've been having some issues with stuttering and choppy-ness on Youtube videos while browsing the web in other tabs.  I've tried to reinstall Chrome and my Adobe Flash but nothing seems to help.  I'm pretty sure it's mainly driver issues.  So if anyone could help me get all of my driver issues sorted out, along with anything that might help boost the performance of my rig, it would be greatly appreciated.  

 

 

Windows 10 64 bit, 16g ram, gtx 970, asus sabertooth 990fx rv.2, OS installed on an ssd, and two hdd for storage.

First remove Adobe Flash unless you absolutely need it or, ensure it is not using AutoRun to automatically load videos because its the biggest attack vector to any windows, mac and linux PC..

Run the command Cleanmgr.exe as administrator, tick all boxes and hit delete to remove all the old windows updates (Note if you do you will not be able to restore back to 7 as it deletes all the old install files from windows 7 but gains around 4 gig in space).

Run the command devmgmt.msc, right click the Graphics device and see if there is any updates.

Still seem to be having sound and mouse stutters when I'm loading multiple tabs or watching videos and doing other things.

If you did not update your graphics drivers after the upgrade I would uninstall your geforce driver if it is listed in Control Panel uninstall programs and install the latest GTX970 driver. Only uninstall the video driver.

 

Here is the latest driver for Windows 10 64bit

I would also update your audio driver.

Edit: Create a Restore Point before updating your drivers.

I don't think this is a hardware problem but to rule it out you can boot a live linux disk of Mint. I would recommend v17.2 which includes all codecs. Boot the disk after burning the iso file. See if you get skipping on your videos.

Have you tried doing a clean boot? Disable all startup items and services as shown in the guide

Try removing the GeForce drivers with display drivers uninstaller and then do a fresh install of the GTX 970 driver. http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html

It's not only when I have multiple windows open.  It happens when I try to do various tasks at once, like play games and listen to music, or browse while using a torrent application.  Sorry for not stating that earlier.

Actually I think I just realized what it might be.... Utorrent, my browser and cache, are installed on my oldest hdd, that I suspected of going out a couple years ago.  I've since backed up everything on that drive to a newer hdd, although the torrent software and browser stuff might still be running off the old drive xD
