Default Annoying computer freezes

I have a problem with browsing the internet/downloading at the same time. Most of the times I cannot browse more than 12 or so tabs on Google Chrome before my computer starts to freeze, which forces me to force restart (button).

I don't know how powerful my integrated HD 4200 is, but I thought it was good enough to be able to browse forums and open up 12 or so tabs?

I've already tried CCleaner for registry problems, tried a few other registry cleaners but had to system restore because of problems.

Yeah, I'm actually testing it right now, I'll run it overnight and see if anything comes up..

Yes, ok so it went through 6 Passes with 0 Errors, 100%.

I've tried running some low key games such as Age of Empires 2 and whatnot. Resulted in a freeze as well, about 5 minutes into the games. Surprisingly, I can't say the same for Sims 2.

hwmonitor is a good program to show all your stuff, CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

30C to 47C (highest I saw it ever go). And obviously I can't reach 50C+ because I'm hardly ever on load!
