It appears to be running something heavy in the background, and im suffering from slight lag purely just surfing the internet. Long load, sudden hang (for about 5 secs) and short period of blank screen when switching from one IE to another IE tab.

Internet Explorer 7 can be heavy on system with specs like yours.
As a test, uninstall Internet Explorer 7 from Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs to go back to IE6 and see what happens. You can always reinstall it from Microsoft's site later.

If you have a Dell computer you could use thier update page. driver updates.
This is the preferred way of updating the drivers for your system. (No need to pay)
