First,I'd like to say hello.First time here xD.And sorry if I'm in the wrong section.Ok,so here we go.

Everything went normal,games were running with decent FPS at low settings,until 1 month ago.Suddenly,all games started to have serious framedrops,from 60-80 to 5-10.Everything was perfect until those framedrops.I ran several programs to get rid of viruses(AVG,Malwarebytes) but nothing.I reinstalled my windows but then again,nothing.Ran CC Cleaner,nothing.I uninstall all those programs,and again,nothing.When the lagg occurs,the PC is at 100% CPU Usage.
Here is my PC when I lag playing a game.Task manager processes and Process Explorer running:
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5200+
Video Card: AMD Radeon HD 5xxx
Any ideas please? I'm desperate xD.
Thanks !

 For starters I'd say 2 GB is not enough for gaming with Windows 7.  Upgrade to at least 4 GB, RAM is cheap.  I also see you're running Java.  That's had a bunch of problems reported with it, so I'd try to get rid of it if I were you.  I can't tell if you have it up to date, but if you have to have it, be sure it's up to date.  


 For further problem determination please download and run Speccy.  After running it click File -> Publish snapshot... Copy and paste the link it gives you into your next post.

 Then download minitoolbox and run it with the following boxes checked:

List last 10 Event Viewer Errors
List Installed Programs
List Users, Partitions, and Memory size
List Minidump files
Copy the resulting log and paste into a reply here.

Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:
