Have you checked the cpu fan is running? Check also theres no dust blocking up the cooling system

Second try installing advanced system care and run that

Is the hard drive noisy or hot?

Clifftop,

Windows 7 is no longer supported by Microsoft. Some program "upgrades" by 3rd party vendors will not work on Windows 7. Be sure you are not "updating" programs or worse yet automatically updating at some ridiculous time of day.

Try upgrading to Windows 10??

 

Those wonderful people at Microsoft even changed mine to W 10 from W 8.1 (against my will - they just did it!!)

looks like you were spot on with the dust.

I cleaned the front vent which was really dusty then I took the side off the tower

and the vent in front of the fan would have been 95% blocked with dust.

 

your bloods worth bottling

 

Thank you very much :clap3::clap3: :clap3: :clap3::clap3::clap3:

Spoke too soon, the problem is still there so I've downloaded Advanced System Care and ran that so up to now it's fine
