Windows 7: windows 7 all programs crash cpu usage less then 10%

Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
windows 7 all programs crash cpu usage less then 10%

hi i am using an Sony vaio laptop E series VPCEA35FG with
an Intel core i3-370M processor G Hz, embedded windows 7 home premium 64 bit
320 GB hard disk drive and 4 GB memory and an ATI radeon graphics
i have been using this laptop since December (almost 4 months now) the problem i recently get a lot is this:
mostly the main programs i open is window MP and google chrome but sometimes also Microsoft word,yahoo windows live mssngr and others
suddenly chrome paint or Photoshop would crash when i try to close it it becomes unresponsive the worst is one by one all the programs start to become unresponsive..and lastly windows MP (when the song runs out) i can not open any other program anymore not even task mangr when i look on my desktop i see the cpu meter runing from 1%-5% only!!even the fan runs low meaning the cpu doesn't do overtime.. the only solution then is to hold the powerbutton and shut it down manually (which i dont like to do since i'm afraid this might damage my laptop in the long-run)
...pls help me if my dad finds out i'm having problems already so soon i'm in serious trouble...

Windows 10, Home Clean Install

Lets start with the easy stuff and most likely
Run a full and upadated virus scan
Download and run a full and updated scan with malwarebytes.
If that is negative test with a clean boot

If you have not been doing things that Dad would not approve of (you know what I mean), dont worry.
