Temperatures:
CPU 75 C (167 F)
SAMSUNG HM160HC 49 C (120 F)

Just noticed that your CPU is really hot, but that isn't our main issue here. By interrupting the chkdsk process, you may have risked the integrity of your filesystem. What error is given at startup.

Take it to a shop, because there might be something wrong with the heatsink or thermal paste.

Otherwise you could try to clean the dust yourself. Open up the case, and make sure you have one hand on the metal of your computer case to avoid static discharge. Use paper towels to wipe the case clean. DO NOT use a vacuum. Also have handy a can of compressed air to get the dust out of hard to reach places. Make sure that no liquid comes out of the can, and follow the instructions on the label.

It could be a malware issue, so keep checking for a reply from the Malware Forum.
Just clean up the case for now. Once you are done cleaning, post the sensor data from Everest again.

It's still very hot.
Take it to a shop and have them look at it. Tell them your CPU's temp reading, and the steps done to try to fix it.

All right. You can try some services like Geek Squad, but they might cost you more.
