OS for low-end PC for normal operation of the browser and flash player?

Ladies and gentlemen, need your help!
There is an old laptop with 2 GB of operatives and a dual-core tseleron. And there is grandma, who is sitting at classmates and plays there games Ala farm.
Actually the question: what to put, so that it is not inhibited?
Initially the laptop was bought without me. Brave managers of well-known network made a plan to sell, I guess. He went to wines 8.1. out of the box and all inhibited. A year later when the warranty ran out I put win 7. After a while all again was not working properly + always a lot of viruses and other things. Now there is mint. Works better, but clueless all the spoils, sometimes hangs tightly. What can advise, can anyone come across?

The best solution is to take the tablet and find a similar game in the Google Play store because flash games will slow down and powerful computer.

And lightweight on current laptop: Ubuntu + XFCE. Or if without reinstalling, I recommend trying Chromium - it works faster on computers with little graphics memory.

I would have tested Debian with LXDE.
Debian = stability
LXDE = very fast GUI compared to razozhravsheesya XFCE

(2 GB of memory for the conventional "grandmother", by the way, enough, he was recently given to parents, but without the ssd it was a sad sight).
