What fan temp program are you talking about?
Not all fans in a computer are necessarily connected to a sensor - and then you'll need a program that is capable of reading that particular sensor!
You should never remove the fan from inside the PSU. Do not ever attempt to open a PSU at all.
You're looking to upgrade this system a fair bit by the looks of it - how much money are you willing to spend on it? I'm tempted to suggest the Gateway you have is not worth throwing away too much cash on...
It also sounds like you need to do a bit of "cleaning up" within your system, clean out temporary files, uninstall unused programs, run a disk defragmenter, apply the latest Windows Updates (SP3 is now out), and run a full scan with an up-to-date antivirus program. You'll find these steps can help big time, if the computer has not been maintained.

Please visit the following website and run through the check to test your system:
Please go HERE (Microsoft website) using Internet Explorer (not Firefox or any other browser as they won't work)
- Click on Windows Validation Assistant
- Click on the Validate Now button.
- Be patient while the ActiveX loads, do not click on any links.
- Read the instructions on this page while it's loading. You will be prompted to install - click YES.
- Enter your product key then click continue
- When it says "Validation Complete" please click Continue to return to your previous activity
- Copy what it says and paste it here.
If your Windows fails, then you'll need to reactivate it. This means you'll need to tell Windows your COA key through the Activation Assistant.
Or it might mean you need to purchase a legal version of Windows, if yours is not.
Once you have a legal and validated version of Windows, you should be able to run updates.

First things first, open the Windows Firewall applet from within the Control Panel, and enable the firewall.
Next, download and install an anti-virus - Avira is excellent, free, and in my signature.
Last, it's possible all this is being caused by a virus already on your system. Run a full scan with an updated antivirus. Then, I strongly suggest you head to the malware forum.
Specifically, follow all the instructions in this link (click here).
Step 5 will explain how you post a log. Make sure you start a new topic in the Malware forum (click here).
Make sure to explain the problem you're having, and provide them with a link to this thread, so they can get a better understanding of your issue.
One of our experts will review your log and help you clean your machine like new
Just beware the forum is very busy, please don't reply to your own thread as it will look like somebody is already helping you. If it is 3 days or longer with no reply, feel free to post a New Topic in the Waiting Room (click here).
If after the all-clear from our experts over there, you are still unable to download Windows Updates, then return to this thread and let me know. Provide a link to the malware topic.

I'm glad your problems are sorted. I'm glad I could help!
EDIT: I see the malware thread is not finished yet ("finished" is when the log is closed). Make sure you wait until Essexboy posts again, and follow any further instructions and advice he has for you. I personally would not install Norton, but would return it and get the money back for it. We'll see what he has to say!
