Hi I'm new here and I'm not going to stay here for long. I just need some answer please help me.

Computer Specs
Acer Aspire 5536
AMD Athlon X2 Dual-Core QL-64 2.1GHZ
4GB ram
ATI 3200HD
ATI HD Audio
Windows 7 b4-bit Home Premium

I've been using AMD fusion for awhile now but about 3 days ago I notice my computer was really slow. I can't watch my videos without it skipping, pausing lagging now. I set the AMD Fusion to Online Gaming and didn't shut it down when I finish playing online games. I figure my system is going faster and so I DL, Install, web browsing listen to music etc... I've done a reformat but it still like that. I didn't change my HDD because I have spare 1. I have updated my video driver to the latest. My system I think is braking down, what I do.
Oh yeah I use the Dual Core Optimizer too. if that program might of messed thing up

1. Scan for viruses
2. remove any none essential programs from starting at start up
3. Run disk clean
4. Defrag hard drive

Easiest thing to do since it usually is multiply issues is to backup all your files and do a clean install so its just like new again not a repair. Whether you realize it or not programs get installed you may not know about or are starting up that dont need to be. Along with malware, spyware, bad/dead drivers the list goes on. Just like a car routine maintence is needed and if not properly maintained an overhaul every once in a while should be done.

My sisters old laptop was just the same way it only had 512mb of ram and a 1.8ghz dual core centrino on XP. Wiped the hard drive and put another 512mb in it with Win7 and it does just fine though she got another anyway oh well free laptop for me.
