Default Laptop keeps lagging and freezing

I need a little help my laptop an acer aspire 5332 keeps lagging and freezing, every time I go on a online game that I play alot of Every time I go on it within 10 mins I have to log out and reboot the computer but if I don't go on it it don't lag or freeze only when I play the game. Iv'e been playing it now 4 years and never used to do it iv'e tried doing clean ups etc but still nothing is working. Will I need to buy a new laptop maybe?

Thanks

When you say you've done cleanup, what programs are you talking about? Have you ran malwarebytes and Ccleaner?

How much memory is installed on this laptop? Can you list the specs? It may be overheating as well.

What game do you play? The celeron processor isn't that good even though its a dual core processor. Did this game ever play without lagging or freezing?

Yeah iv'e been playing it now about 4 years without any problems its just been in the last month I would say that if im on it more then 10 mins it either freezes and the laptop makes a funny buzzing noises then comes around again after like 2-3 mins or it just laggs really bad but not just the game everything. this is the game--->http://us.darkorbit.com/ its played straight from there website once you logged in

Ok, lets do something differently.

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from here or here and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version. Please keep updating until it says you have the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select Perform quick scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • A log will be saved automatically which you can access by clicking on the Logs tab within Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

If for some reason Malwarebytes will not install or run please download and run Rkill.scr, Rkill.exe, or Rkill.com but DO NOT reboot the system and then try installing or running Malwarebytes. If Rkill (which is a black box) appears and then disappears right away or you get a message saying rkill is infected, keep trying to run rkill until it over powers the infection and temporarily kills it. Once a log appears on the screen, you can try running malwarebytes or downloading other programs.



Download the HijackThis installer from here.
Run the installer and choose Install, indicating that you accept the licence agreement. The installer will place a shortcut on your desktop and launch HijackThis.

Vista and Windows 7 users must right click on the hijackthis icon and click on run as. If the run as option doesn't appear then press and hold the shift key while right clicking on the icon to get it to appear.



Click Do a system scan and save a logfile

Most of what HijackThis lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.

Post the logfile that HijackThis produces along with the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware log
