What do mean by freeze exactly? Some people use the term differently. I don't think any of those should crash or become unresponsive during normal use. We might be able help you fix the issue, then you can use which ever of the three you prefer.

What netbook do you have? I'd like to look at the specs of it. Depending on your RAM and CPU, occasional hang-ups might be expected.

Your RAM is way to low. Microsoft recommends 1GB for win7 but starter will run fine on 512MB (0.5GB). With that little RAM even a web breowser by it self will cause the system to lag. DDR2 laptop RAM isn't very expensive and you can buy at stores like bestbuy or radio shack.

Which browser should I use?
In my START MENU, there are two entries for Internet Explorer. One says just Internet Explorer and the other says Internet Explorer (64-bit). My Dell is a 64-bit -- should I be using that one rather than the "plain" IE??? Thanks for your help. Windsorlady
