Thsi is not XP but the first automated OS for drivers and performance/security, so it's much more important to set drivers to install Automatically, provide Recommended same as Important.

In addition check for Updates now and install all Important and Optional Windows Updates after enabling Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3).
Some windows updates screw up your computer.

I have one optional update I uninstalled but can't find again and it freezes random, tried everything but nothing works, NOT EVEN SYSTEM RESTORE.

And I get other random stuff that happens to my computer, when watching something on youtube, something is making it skip frame rate, when playing a game, randomly lag, this is caused by the updates, windows 7 updates.
Didn't I just tell you that the chance of Windows Updates causing problems is greater than one in a million?

Your problem is likely a corrupted install caused by following old tired XP methods and myths. I would look over the steps involved in getting a perfect Clean Reinstall then follow them closely. You'll get and keep a perfect install if you do, just like thousands of others who've never had a single complaint after doing so.

Where did you get Win7 Ultimate? How is it activated?

Fill in your System Specs in bottom left corner of post now if you want further help.
