Windows 7: My laptop freezes after opening facebook, youtube or skype

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
My laptop freezes after opening facebook, youtube or skype

After I log in facebook, for some seconds, my laptop start to freeze(I can still move my mouse or press ctrl+alt+del), but after some seconds, it's completely freezes and I cannot do anything but to press the power button. This happens it all browsers I tried: Chrome, Firefox and IE. The problem also happens when entering youtube. Also when logging in skype, the exact same problem happens. Other websites or programs work perfectly fine.

The problem occured a week ago. The last program I install today is skype(but maybe not relevant to the problem). And I 'guess' the cause is from installing itunes on my computer last week but not sure if it's the real cause. I now uninstall it but the problem still happens.

I tried to find the solutions but nothing works so far: disable Adobe Flash Player via Chrome://plugins, install the latest version of Flash Player, scan virus by malwarebyte,

My labtop details:
Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU M350 @2.27GHz 2.27GHz
RAM 2.00GB
32-bit Operating System

Thank you in advance

try updating your wireless driver, judging by what you are doing, that could well be your problem.
