    Well, even when Firefox isn't running at all, it will still freeze up, same thing with all the other programs. I reset the OS and am hoping that will end this mayhem.

    At this point I would (assuming you successfully revert back to Win 8) image the hard drive (I use Macrium Reflect), then slick the drive and install Win 10 clean. Since you've already upgraded to Win 10 MSoft remembers the laptop. I did it on my Y510P (first upgraded on 8.1, then slicked the disk and installed clean from the DVD). This way you can see if the problem exists before you install any non-MS programs.
    Note: I say to image the HD in case you have trouble with the clean install.

    Good luck!

    For those of you who are still monitoring this thread, I'm proud to say that it is fixed! I did a "PC Reset" where it deleted all of my apps but kept my files and folders, and after reinstalling all of my apps, it no longer crashes or freezes up. My guess was that a major file was corrupted during the switch from 8.1 to 10, which has now been solved.

    Thanks for all of your help!
