    Xubuntu is a light weight desktop environment which is popular with older hardware. Hence why we told you to try it. It increases system responsiveness. Ubuntu-Tweek keeps your system clean. Which is good no matter what operating system you use. Your hardware is older and makes it seem like it lags trying to run ubuntu's unity (meant for newer systems)

    The "system tools" in the repositories are mainly for monitoring, repairing, or configuring aspects of your OS.

    I've run Linux for approximately ten years; about the only routine maintenance I have to perform is:

    - run updates
    - clear the package cache ("sudo apt-get clean")
    - Remove old kernels and kernel header packages

    If your system is having lockups and inconsistent behavior, you probably have hardware issues or hardware compatibility issues, and no software utility is going to be able to fix this.

    Yes that is so far what the tech support on PCHelpForum, are thinking, mostly with Flash Drive, while a guy on DeviantART(doctormo) thinks it is a memory card issue.
