Good to see you have it sorted Lurch 56
You could give your pc a clean up to help speed things up now you have the heat problem sorted.

You start by removing programs you don't use as in the link provided
http://windows.micro...ogram=windows-7


To get rid of junk files use diskclean again the links under this text
http://windows.micro...eanup=windows-7

You can also use other programs to clean temporary files Like TFC and CCleaner.
IMPORTANT::::Never use the registry options on the cleaners. Just use the temp file clean options.

Lastto do is a defragment

We are pleased to hear that the temps have now dropped since the notebook has been cleaned out :)

We can mark this topic as having been resolved, it will not however be closed as that is not done on the Tech Forums.

For now I must ask that you do not follow any further steps suggested or post in this thread until you have been given the all clear of malware by emeraldnzl over on those forums.
