Everything is ok from a malware perspective, I will work with the hardware guys to see whats going on with my CPU temp. I was about to run Delfix but I am hoping it is ok I don't. I don't care for resetting UAC and some of those other settings. I have them intentionally off. I take ownership if something goes bump because of this. I appreciate your help!

Fair play and not a problem at all as the machine is your property after-all and I always respect the wishes of those I assist etc.

Anyway merely perform the alternate clean-up procedures below and you should be good to go from a Anti-Malware point of view and good luck resolving your machine's hardware related issues.
Clean up with OTL:
- Right-click OTL and select Run as Administrator to start the program.
- Close all other programs apart from OTL as this step will require a reboot.
- On the OTL main screen, depress the CleanUp button.
- Say Yes to the prompt and then allow the program to reboot your computer.
Any left over merely delete yourself and empty the Recycle Bin.
Reset the System Restore points:
Create a new, clean System Restore point:-
- Right click on Computer and select Properties >> System protection >> Create....
- Give this restore point a descriptive name and click Create.
- When the new restore point is created click on OK >> close the System Properties window.
Flush Old System Restore points:-
- Click on Start(Windows 7 Orb) >> All Programs >> Accessories >> System Tools >> right-click on Disk Cleanup and select Run as Administrator.
- Select the system drive, C >> OK.
- Ensure the boxes for Recycle Bin, Temporary Files and Temporary Internet Files are checked, you can choose to check other boxes if you wish but they are not required.
- Click on Clean up system files >> Select the system drive, C >> OK.
- Now click on the More Options tab.
- Click on Clean up... >> Delete >> OK >> Delete Files.
