Much more than that you will have problems
You are probably having problems because your computer does not have sufficient specs for resource hungry programs, you mentioned some of the problem programs, yourself. Until you can get another laptop, stay way from those demanding, resource hungry programs.
I understand that and I will try not to use them, however it is also having an affect on videos. Videos are something I really enjoy watching but they are causing the same problem. This is only with files I have on my computer, and has no affect on online videos (as far as I can tell).
I am a college student with a 4 year total protection plan on this laptop. I'm at the 2.5 year mark and I doubt I'll be getting a new one until it's essential. So, is it pretty much "Go back to Widows XP" until I get a better computer?
