Also the report is not in a form I use. But the fact the temp, fans and power looks lower, look at Windows 7 performance settings.

When I need PC information I tend to use Speccy. It's over at https://www.piriform.com/docs/speccy/using-speccy/publishing-a-speccy-profile-to-the-web
In the above screenshot are benchmarks for my CPU, right is from 6 April and left is from today. As you can see, there's been a sudden 80% decrease in benchmark performance.
Over the past two days my computer started running running the CPU at 100% during basic tasks like watching YouTube videos or pretty much anything else.
At first I thought I may have gotten a virus, and scanned my PC with Kaspersky, Superantispyware and Anti-Malware Bytes, nothing came up.
I tinkered with the bios, and reset everything to default, and still nothing.
Here is a open hardware report : https://www.dropbox.com/s/r9qzkbyudxqhrvg/report%20AH.t...
The CPU runs roughly 4°C lower than a what it did previously, and draws very little power. The CPU fan which has previously always ran at a solid 2K RPM is now hovering around 1.4 K, this has never happened before.
The computer is pretty old by now, soon to be five years old, so perhaps hardware failure is to blame, though I'm not certain how to confirm this.
If anyone has an idea for how to fix this, or what might even be the cause, I would very much appreciate,
PS if you need any additional information, don't hesitate asking.
