It also sounds like you have a cooling issue with your processor. Try removing that is over the area of the exhaust vents and clean all the dust and **** off the vents, heat sink, and fan. You may have to remove the fan to do so.

Some acer laptops have a known cooling problem which create exactly this type of issue. I have an acer Aspire 3680 2301 and a lot of forums recommended to put it in the freezer (no kidding!). JUst try to level up the laptop from your table with some stable blocks (just an inch off the table should be enough. You don't want to knock it off the ground by accident. Just mind where the cooling fans are when you position your blocks and make sure you have all 4 corners covered for stability.

Open your system configuration and check all programs running unchecking unneccessary programs may increase speed if your antivirus is at its maximum configuration it can slow your cpu reconfigure the antivirus to essentials only and run it if it performs better the antivirus program may be too heavy, get a registry cleaner program your registry may be clogged with unnecessary links and loops. and finally if you have konwledge on registry editing there are tweeks that can be done to increase performance. check also you display configuarations if it is set on best appearance themes and other displays can slow down processing uncheck most of them or set display it in best performance (Right click my computer - click advance tab - click performance settings button - click best performance you could check the last 4 options present to make your desk top appear fairly decent then check if performance improves. Have you checked your ram modules it may not be working properly (right click My computer it should register you total ram if its the same with your actual then there is nothing wrong with it if not it may be a RAM module problem. Hope your lap top works faster.

You have something running in the background that is eating up the CPU useage. You need to identify which process is doing this.
Use the built in task manager, using ctrl-alt-delete to bring it up, and see which process is at above 90% cpu usage. Then post back here what you find.
