It's either overheating, or infected, or has way too many apps running in the backward, or any combination of the three. Plus you only have 2GB RAM so you shouldn't expect blazing speed.

* Get a can of compressed air & blow the dust out of your cooling vents.

* Scan for viruses & malware.

* Use CCleaner Portable to clear out the accumulated internet garbage, clean the registry, & manage your startup apps.

After doing all the above, reboot & see if the performance has improved.

After that uninstall unnecessary programs (Google if needed to identify), choose programs options that do not start programs with Windows, just when you open it. Do this for enough programs and your system should work much snappier. While it takes a few extra moments to open a program this way, you save so much time and gain so much speed when they all are not running in the background all of the time. A good 'System Idle' number (Task Manager) for a factory system is anything higher than 80% to 90%, a very good number for a 'clean' home built system is anything over 98% with most programs closed. Apparently, CCleaner (see riider above) has the ability to manage your start up programs, I have always done it manually (your choice), but uninstalling a lot of unused programs cannot hurt either.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

a tip: When you're blowing out the internals, try to block the fan from spinning. Sometimes you're able to do so from the back of the computer. The fan spinning can cause backwards voltage spikes, if the Motherboard isn't protected (however, recent motherboards are with opto-isolators.)

Seeing you're speaking about it freezing up shortly after bootup (1-ish hour) I'm thinking of an overheating problem, more than a software thing.
