Could it be your internet lagging? could the internet provider change the speed settings? \hope you get it sorted.

no, it's running slowly on single player game,still looking at the moment, thanks for the input though,:)

2 things that spring to mind are
1. under vista make sure you have aero enabled
2. some card report issues with secondary display, toggle this from off to on or vice versa
ps state what gfx card would help, and make sure you have latest drivers first

Computer Specs would be useful,

a game may say "minimum specs 2.5ghz Pentium 4 processor" but that may not be sufficient to actually run it smoothly, don't buy a game if you only just scrape the minimum

have just copied this from the site i used, i have updated the drivers but still nothing, do you think it could be my graphics card that is the problem here?
Thanks again

a quick read of that appears you have gfx integrated on the mainboard, not suitable for fps gaming at all, get a proper gx card even an old nvidia 6600 will do the job better.
