Before hand, I'd like to thank all of you for your help and advice. You guys are doing the internet a wonderful service.
I've been noticing that a huge drop in my fps rates in my games. The one that I use the most, League of Legends, dropped from 60 fps to an average of low 30s and 20s. This slowing down is across the broad for all of my applications. For instance, firefox looks kind of choppy when I scroll down. Even right now, as I'm typing this, the text is lagging behind at certain points. Also, I'm not sure if it's related, but when I was buying games off steam, I used two different credit cards. These cards used were duplicated and used in a different state. I'm pretty sure it's infected with something, but I wanted to get the opinions of people who know computers.
I had one of those rogue anti-virus programs, but I followed the instructions to remove it. I think there may have been other problems with the computer though.
I have avira and Malwarebytes one my computer. I've ran them both in safe mode, and they don't really come up with anything. Avira found some exploits, but I removed those. When I look in task manager, it doesn't show any cpu usage, normally. It hover from about 0-5% when there aren't any other programs running.
I am using Windows 7, I have a ge force 9600 gt, the computer is about one year old, it has a Nvidia dual core 3.2 ghz, and I use a wireless adapter to connect to the internet.
Thanks again for any help.
