Windows 7 hangs while running multiple programs.

HI everyone
I am a normal computer user and also an average gamer.
I never use my computer over 3 hours a day.
But recently i got caught up in some work that i used my PC for about 12 hours everyday for almost a week.
Recently my PC seems to be hanging.
It runs properly in the start up and doesnt hang there.
But as soon as i start a video or open some other programs it starts to hang.
suspecting my programs might be corrupted i reinstalled my programs but no use.
also wen i run two programs simultaneously both of them hangs and processes slowly than normal.
i checked my temp and it shows 60 C in my bios setup.
I am running a windows 7 32 bit ultimate.

AMD athlon II X4 630 2.8ghz
Kingston RAM 2 gb
N vidia 1 GB Graphics card
ASUS motherboard M2N68-AM SE2

you may want to have your heatsink and cpu cleaned and reset. you can also try opening your system up to let some cool air in it.

you didn't by chance change any settings in your bios did you ?
you asked about overclocking in your last post thats why i'm asking. if you did maybe it just a matter of resetting your bios .
