Hello I'm new etc..

So my computer has been freezing when doing stuff it should easily be able to handle. For example, I try running Photoshop CS3 and Firefox at the same time and it will act slow and sluggish. Not just photoshop, lots of other applications are slow. Basically, my performance is terrible. I just got my computer so I doubt it's a virus or anything (I'm very careful anyway and I've ran a virus scan). I've downloaded Speedfan and this is my results:

So apparently two of my fans aren't running which can't be good. And that fire symbol I assume means the temperature is too hot.

Any idea how to cool my computer/get the fans running?
