Default Laptop. freezes once in a while in games

Hi i have Acer 5100 (X1600) For like half year.
Like 1-2 months ago i've started to get freezes when playing.
everything works smooth for 15-20 minutes and they i get really really slow performance for like 1-2 minutes. If i play online and for example with Skype on the freezes occur frequently. If i alt tab during the slow performancy and open task manager CPU load is over 90% then gets back to normal 10-15.
I have no idea what went wrong everything worked fine before. I checked for spyware and there is nothing.

too many background processes maybe your doing a system scan in the background?? if you go to processes tab on your task manager you can see directly what is eating cpu power

What you are describing sounds as though your applications are utilizing most of the CPU power....

Could also, be that the laptop is overheating.
