Default Counter Strike: Source (Help with problem please.)

Hi im new to this forum, i found it looking for anywhere for me to ask for help, im getting desperate. You see, Counter Strike: Source is great, but Steam/Valve (i think) messed up an update (that only affected some people for some reason). When they published 'bots' for the game, my game suddenly became slower, and laggier. (this could be because of other things, it just coincidentally happens to be around the same time as the update). I haev Defragmented my C drive, done a "disk cleanup", uninstalled unused things, removed unused files, made sure that the only thing running was steam and the game (other than background programs that i daren't touch incase i mess up the computer :S). It would be great if somebody could suggest a way to get rid of the lag problems. Im not sure what FPS your supposed to have (of what i used to have before the lag) but the problem had reduced my Frames Per Second to about 4, after defragmenting its between 9 and 11. This is an improvement, but not very much, its still impossible to play at such a frame rate. The lag is nothing to do with my internet connection, as it is a 2 MegaBit Blueyonder Broadband connection, even though my ping goes up to between230-450 now...

All help is appreciated, thank you!

motherboards and componets.
