Hi, I have several problems but I'm going to assume you only want to take them on one at a time. So that's what we'll do.
I'm using Windows 7 Pro, SP1. 2Gb Ram...wait, I have tool for this.

More and more lately, I get hung up in both Firefox 36 and Opera 29. It's usually when I have a few tabs open and have been running it for a while. That's to be expected, I should close and reopen every 20 minutes at the very least, I suppose. Annoying, but not to the point of driving me insane as this freeze does. I've been on XP for most of my computer-using life, and on it Task Manager ruled the land. So I kept it up. As soon as I star my computer, I start it up with it. It's good to have if you run across a site trying to install a virus or whatever should you catch something fishy before your anti-virus does.
But with Win7 Pro, when the computer freezes up, so does task manager. I have to control-alt-delete to either get task manager up, or sometimes just to start responding again without bringing up TM.
To let everyone know, right now, I'm on a refurbished computer that's lasted about a year at this point. Quite frankly, my Windows8phobia made me actually go out and purposely look for a refurbished computer with Win7, since I heard it was the best of all the newer OSs since XP. Now, if I need to reinstall, I have no Win7 Pro disc to do that with. However, I do have 2 trusty XP Home discs that I would be more than happy to substitue for it, although I have heard that Win 7 machines create a partition or something that let's you reinstall after a format. I presume, anyway, I won't lie, i'm not exactly sure what that means.
So there's a wall of text that I hope isn't too much. Forgive me if it is, I'm working on my flaw. It would have been bigger a few months ago.
