When I was using my PC last night for the first time in weeks (had hardware issues after three days of using it), it was seriously lagging. Before any of the problems it didn't lag at all. I could only ever get the CPU usage up to 4% max but yesterday it was going insane.
I couldn't load left 4 dead, my friend also couldn't figure out why it wasn't loading since it came up in the processes but nothing happened on screen. I played this game loads of times when I first got my pc working but it refused to work.
I do not think there is a virus on there but I can't be 100% sure it isn't caused by one. I scan everyday with AVG but the last day I used it I didn't have chance because the CPU fan died, but I only just logged into windows before I shut down.
I don't mind if I have to re format my hard drive but there is one file I really want to keep since I have been working on it for ages.
