Have you run your resident anti-virus in Safe Mode, and has it found anything?
What precisely happens when you "can't seem to play BF2." A better description of what happens and when it happens would be very helpful, since there could be many causes.
When was the last time you ran checkdisk and defragged?

John

You did not answer jgweed's question about running your anti-virus in safe mode and whether it found anything.

If you have not performed a scan in safe mode then do so. If you have no success after that then do the following:

Download and scan with Ewido Anti-Malware v3.5
Ewido Install and Scan Instructions

Download and scan with Ad-Aware SE Personal and install it. If you already have Ad-Aware SE, please setup & configure as shown here.

Download and scan with Spybot S&D 1.4.
Setup & Configure as shown here.
[DO NOT choose the option to install TeaTimer]
Note: If you encounter any error messages while downloading the updates, manually download them from here.

Perform these online Virus scans:
[Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component]

Trend Micro Housecall Scan
Panda ActiveScan
ActiveScan Panda does not remove adware/spyware but will autoclean for viruses & worms.

You can purchase an anti-virus product from the store that includes a disk or you can download a free one from the Internet.

Free Antivirus programs:
AVG - How to Install, Configure, and Use AVG
Avast - How to Install, Configure, and Use Avast Antivirus
AntiVir PersonalEdition Classic

To prevent spyware, homepage hijacking and increase your browser security use these free programs:
SpywareGuard
SpywareBlaster
IE-SPYAD

I also recommend that you sse a Firewall to protect yourself. A hardware firewall can provide a strong degree of protection from most forms of attacks coming from the outside. A software firewall generally offers the best measure of protection against Trojans and worms but they are harder to configure and must share resources with other running processes which can decrease system performance. These too can be found for free.
Directory Of Firewalls
Home PC Firewall Guide
Understanding and Using Firewalls

As for the slowness of your computer, before you do something drastic, try some of jgweed's suggestions listed here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/44694/slow-computer/

Before you do something drastic like that lets have a closer look at whats in your system. I suggest you read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, not here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts.

It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy. Please be patient as they are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have not been replied as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, a team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
