As a matter of fact I never experienced a single freeze due to the OS. The few problems I have are all connected to Firefox (if you have it make sure it's not running when you launch Elements) and its Flash instability, to the point that I'm getting ready, after 10 years, to drop it.

As for Firefox I disabled all add-ons and see how it behaves. Firefox has been known to be a memory hog for a long time, with version 3.5 (and I've been using it since 0.5Beta)things improved but it still remains a hog, the other day it was consuming 1+Gigabyte of RAM with 5 tabs open. Most of it can be blamed on a bad implementation of Flash. I have been using Chrome in parallel and it's way faster, unfortunately I can't seem to be getting used to the interface.
