Hi everyone, last week all of a sudden while playing roblox, CPU started to perform at 100%, and PC was struggling, lagging, delaying ,
Can anyone help and tell me why this started to happen all of a sudden, when i had no problems......?

Ghz doesnt drop
I recommend using HWINFO64 to log all system components. It can tell you usage and temps for almost everything in the system, and you can create CSV-files you can analyze in Excel or Open Office later. Memory use would be especially interesting here. Your issue sounds like something I had in a specific game (and only that one game) on my old computer. There, memory use went up to 16GB, or 100% capacity over a short period of time. It was most likely a bug in the game since others had the same problem as me and it went away after an update. But bug or no, it should definitely be checked.
