  1. It's going to be slow, but I see no problem with it. It's only going to add a hair more stress to your stress test! :)
  2. I prime and use the computer for email, docs, and surfing, never had a problem. I don't think it effects the test any. I would open the programs/webpage before you start the test however.
  3. It's ok as long as what you're planning to run alongside prime95 is not cpu intensive. Web browsing and general office tasks are ok, you'll find gaming, picture/video editing and other cpu intensive tasks a problem.
  4. Yes you need to keep it to relatively low system resource programs.
