There are lots of good videos on Youtube to help you get started.

The LM menu on the bottom left is your "start menu", where you can find lots of apps, settings, etc.

Your PC isn't very old, so I'd think the length of time is unusual. I can typically run an install in 5-10 minutes and be ready to use.

It does look like you made it through the install, however, since you've now posted about your CPU temps. :)

The best way to find where everything is, is to explore have a look at the system, most applications have a name like browsers are in the internet section, the task manager should be in the system section, and if you can not find it you can all ways open up a terminal and use command: top, this will list all the tasks that are running and how much ram, CPU they are taking.

if you can not find something you are looking for go into the app store and search for it Linux has a lot of awesome applications, so am sure you will find what you are looking for.

And about your screen freezing i would say try to restart, or just give it sometime it could be a problem with your hardware

hope this helps :)
