It could be a background tasks eating up your CPU. I was having problems with Speedfan yesterday because it was maxing my E6300 out for no apparent reason. All I had to do was end the process and restart Speedfan. Also, do spyware/virus scans, with programs like Ad-Aware and Avast!, both of which are free and easily found on Google. A defrag wouldn't hurt either.

you have the same graphics card as me (im pretty sure anyway). its kinda crappy. im not sure on the requirements of f.e.a.r but with a crappy card you wont get good results from a lot of games. i mean i can only run san andreas 100% smoothly on the lowest settings on my laptop, well medium lags a bit but is playable, high is just about playable, and the highest isnt enjoyable at all.

But FPS isn't his only problems, sometimes loading takes much longer than it should, and he's having slowdown problems just using Windows.

Yeah wrong fear will just change its settings for your computer to run it. I had a en6200tc hunk of crap just for a hold off until i got a better card and that thing ran fear great.

hard drive is probably holding you back. Defrag the hard drive.
