Have you checked for a build up of dust and fluff in the air vents and CPU?
If not you may want to do this as your first point of call.
If its clogged up then give it a blow with a can of compressed air from your local computer store till the dust and fluff is all removed, you may need a very fine small paint brush to to help remove the dust.
MAKE SURE THE POWER TO YOUR COMPUTER IS OFF AND IT'S UNPLUGGED BEFORE YOU OPEN HER UP.
Let me know how much ram you have and what make/model your processor is.
Post a log into the malware section to see if you have anything your AV has not identified, it's probably not malware as it sounds like a case of dust clogging up the vents but it never hurts to check every thing out.
Post back once you have checked to let me know how you get on mate
