    They used to be very fast, because I have a very fast computer, but lately my games have been running alot slower than usual and i don't have any idea why, could anyone tell me?

    You have to get more specific than that...at least post the specs of your system. What did you do right before you noticed the slowdown?

    well just over time gradually they have been having glitches when i play them and things like that. Could it be a virus, because it doesn't seem like a virus would make games glitch and stuff.

    Could be spyware, viruses, extraneous programs running in the background eating your system resources, it could be a ton of things.

    what is the best way to check for viruses and delete them? because i've already done spyware checks and eliminated that.

    yea, its probably a virus/spyware.
    run ad-aware. also check what programs are executed at the start.

    i ran a scan, i don't have any viruses or spyware. They don't lag a whole lot they just have minor glitches once in awhile.
