While you are waiting for a response from a malware expert, do this:
Download Speed Fan and install it.
Start Speed Fan. When it is fully loaded, take a screen shot of the first screen by pressing Print Screen/SysRq on your keyboard. Open Paint and paste. Save the screenshot as a JPEG and post it in a reply to me. Now click on the tab called S.M.A.R.T.. Select your hard drive by using the drop-down box at the top. Now take a screenshot of that as well. Post it in your reply to me as well.
NOTE: For certain computers, Speed Fan will not display accurate measurements. If the temperature wildly fluctuates or doesn't change at all, let me know, otherwise I will believe the mesurements are accurate.

To resolve this situation, you can try giving your laptop a good internal cleaning. However, I have never opened a laptop and do not know how to instruct you on doing so.
Go to the Hardware forum and start a thread there. Let them know your laptop is overheating and ask how to open it up and clean it out. Tell them your laptop's brand and model. (example: Dell Inspiron 8100)
And it is okay to still have a post in the Malware forum, since you do have an infection. And since it has been more than 3 days, you could post a link to that topic and a short description in the Waiting Room forum.
@mokaiba: Renna is correct. If you look at the top of our website, you would see:
To avoid confusion, please do not post your question in someone else's topic. Start your own. Stay with your original topic when posting a follow up.
Please follow those directions. Thank you.

So that means it was a dang infection the whole time! Tricky tricky tricky
Glad it is fixed! That's a major relief
But still get your laptop cleaned out, because it is very hot. That could be a problem in the future if left untreated.
And thanks for whatever you can donate!
