Just the steam application, or a particular game? You should post specifics of what you're experiencing and what you're doing while experiencing it. Aside from that, your CPU might not be handling whatever game it is that you're downloading.

Sounds like you need a memory upgrade to me. You've got an i5 with only 4gb of memory. However, steam isn't much a resource hog just being on a system. I'd consider some diagnostic approaches in the realm of malware.

Good idea. Let me know if I can recommend any good applications for system optimization or malware.

You don't need more RAM, 4GB is plenty. I suggest you ask Steam Support, as Steam is quite buggy and does crash quite often.
