You have at least 40 more processes running than I do; all of them take up some RAM and CPU cycles.

You may have all kinds of things running that don't need to be.

Type "msconfig" into the start search box and follow the link. Open the services tab of msconfig. Check "hide all Microsoft services". How many of the remaining items have a checkmark and are shown as running? Do you have any idea what most of them do or if they need to be running?

Look at the startup tab of msconfig. How many checked items? Windows will run with none of them checked.

Overhanging all of this is your puny CPU. Puny by today's standards.

It scores 1599 on the Passmark CPU benchmark.

By way of comparison, a new $200 Intel processor might score 7500.

So, your machine needs all the help it can get--reducing processes, closing unnecessary applications, running as lean as you can get away with, good maintenance habits, etc.
I have 25 services running. I unchecked about half the things I don't need to startup in the startup tab.
I now have 77 processes running.

Thanks for your help.

Try Safe Mode with Networking and see if it helps. Safe Mode

What should I do in Safe Mode?
Make it "Safe Mode with Networking" and then open webpages etc, things that cause a problem now. See if it continues even in Safe Mode.

Also try disabling extensions/add-ons in your browser and see if it helps.
