Have HP Pavillion dv2000 running Vista Home Premium.
System always ran hot, but seems extremely hot now. System was running slow, so I went through standard Geekstogo Virus and Spyware removal. After I ran RootRepeal as sole administor user, system went into a continuous loop of restarting Windows Explorer. In attempting to resolve the problem, we ran several tests. ComboFix ran twice for about 1 1/2 hours each time and system shut down. We thought it might be malware, but I am thinking now that it could be overheating. I attempted a Memory Check in Safe Mode, which says it does 2 passes. Twice, system got about 35% through first pass and shut down.
History is at:
Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to determine whether I am having an overheating problem? The system appears to stop at the same point each time. Virus/Malware check seems clean but not sure how far it went because of aborts.
If problem is overheating, is there anything I can do to alleviate the problem?
