✔ Best Answer

Your don't have a laptop, you have a netbook, & netbooks are not made for gaming. The fact that it's called a NET-book should tell you what it's supposed to be used for - interNET cruising. Your netbook has a weak CPU, a weak graphics chip, & too little RAM for gaming. And the fact that you've loaded up with game downloads & now your system has become slow suggests that your system is infected, probably due to spyware packaged with the games. Try booting into safe mode & running a full virus/malware scan.
