Well this is just strange as I can see nothing causing the issue other then you only have 448 megs of memory which by todays standards is bare minimum for your OS to function correctly.
The minimum we suggest is 1 gig of memory so that there is some surplus with everything running. i believe part of your issue is related to the lack of free memory. Please do the following and post the results please.
Go to HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system.
You do not have to buy the memory from there, but write down the information and if you need assistance in purchasing the upgrade memory GTG can assist with suggestions also.
