Freenet has a configuration option.  You can set it from configuration
-> core settings -> max memory.

For frost, run it with "java -Xmx256M -jar frost.jar" (or whatever
setting you prefer) instead of the normal "java -jar frost.jar".

It's possible your issue is Freenet memory; I'm not certain.  Please
let me know if increasing memory available helps.

I'm not certain.  Freenet normally runs most of its threads at very
low priority, and a couple at higher priority.  Reducing the priority
too far on some OSes can mean the high priority threads get starved
for CPU, causing timeouts and restarts and such.  I'm not sure if this
happens on windows.

Just the normal download process.  Reducing the size of your queue
will fix the problem, and increasing the memory available may help.

They should add the file to your download queue; they work fine here.
What does happen?  What error message are you getting?
