Help with Condtion Zero Lag! I've tried all!

Specs: Windows Vista
Hello, I am having some serious problems with my CZ :l It was working just fine until about a week or two ago.
Here is my specs and game info:
Windows Vista (ewww)
Intel Pentium 4 Processor 641
3.20 Ghz
512 MB DDR2
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950

CZ Console Info
Rate 25000
cl_rate 5000
cl_cmdrate 40
cl_updaterate 60
fps_max 101
fps_modem 99

What am I missing?!
The lag happens for several reasons but the main one is: As soon as a HE grenade hits my ping spikes from around 40 to 120 and my fps drop from around 70 to 10 or less.
Also my deagle causes super lag. Every shot causes my fps to drop below 10 and my lag to shoot up.
Other guns/nades dont seem to affect it but other players HE nades do but not other players deagles.
I have tried re-installing updating video card drivers etc.

I realize that the system requirements for CS:CZ are pretty low by modern standards, but your specs are weak. Vista with only 512MB RAM plus crappy Intel onboard graphics? It's time for a memory & video card upgrade.

"It worked fine about a week ago and now boom, playin like crap"

Could be a hardware problem, could be a software problem. It's hard to say based on what little info you provided. What changes did you make to your system in the past week? Regardless of that, your system is NOT a gamer...512MB is way too little RAM to run Vista well, let alone run games with it & the GMA950 sucks. How much of that 512MB is used by the graphics?

Well the main change I made to my system is I stopped using a router and now I direct connect to the modem.
Could this have something to do with it?
