Pick one of the games you are having issues with and uninstall and restart and reinstall it.

How much space is left on your Hard drive?

It's possibly a virus... Like what megabite said... You should check your processes tab and organize by most resource usage... Snapshot it and post it... You can also give us a snapshot of your resource manager...

What kind of reasons could there be for this lag. When i look at my resource monitor it shows my hard disk usage as off the charts. My computer has a radeon hd 5650 integrated gfx card, an i3 370 m processor and 4 gigs of ram. I hope someone can shed some light on why i have this problem.
Thanks
This bit of information provided jumps out at me.

Cleaning the registry has little to no positive effects on the system. It will only lead to the damage of system entries.

No automated piece of software can possibly detect only the redundant entries without taking out a few useful ones at the same time.

Search this forum for 'Registry Cleaner' or something similar to see what has happened to people who use them.

Sorry to butt in like that

A system restore to a point prior to using the 'cleaner' seems like a logical place to start.

I was told it could be something to do with my clocking speed? does that sound like a possibility?

Snapshot and upload? the "insert image" button? or you could attach files on the bottom...
also if your looking for a snapshot software hypercam 3 might be able to do it... maybe FRAPS

Clocking speed? I don't think your harddrive would have anything to do with your cpu. Unless your overclocking your HDD... which I've never heard of.
