My laptop, after being used for 3 or 4 hours becomes so slow that even clicking on the start button takes forever to load. every mouse click such as the right click takes 3 to 4 minutes to respond.

I'm guessing this is a hardware problem. Ive tried memtest and my ram is not at fault. So is there any other application like memtest that will test or check my processor?

How full is your hard drive? Have you done any disk maintenance and defragged?
Check your virtual memory settings

The CPU is one of those items that tends to either work or not work. What you have sound like overheating. I would suggest purchasing a can of air and blowing out the vents.

I would help to know what make and model your computer is. How much RAM you have. How large the hdd is, and how much free space you have on it. And what kind of processes you are running when it slows down.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

CTRL+ALT+DEL, or right click taskbar/toolbar and select "Task Manager", go to "Performance" tab and check CPU/Memory usage. Select "processes" to see what is eating up CPU/memory. Many times a bad program with a memory leak will cause your symptoms.

A program like CPU-Z will also give you CPU temps and indicate if it is throttling down due to heat.

As posted above, more information on your part would be a big help.
