Can you list some more specs? What model and speed is your processor?

3GB of your 7GB won't be used on a 32-bit OS. We need more system info but I suspect mismatched memory modules is causing part of the problem.

Sysinternals ProcessExplorer can be used to determine what is running. I don't remember if it can save a snapshot or not.

We need system specs.
Please use this tutorial by Brink.

System Info - See Your System Specs

With 7 gb of ram the motherboard is probably in single channel mode instead of dual channel mode.

not to mention if that's a 32 bit OS 7 GB of Ram won't do much

You've been asked multiple times for details on your system and have not provided them.

For all we know, you have a weak processor and your PC is performing very well given that it has a weak processor. If that's true, you need to upgrade the processor.

But we don't know any of that for sure because you are keeping the details a secret known only to yourself.

Computer gets really slow out of nowhere.
I have an old, crappy Vaio that I installed a free copy of Windows 7 Pro, 32 bit on. It has a 1.6GHz (single core) processor so it can't really handle a lot but does manage pretty well.
