Few weeks ago my computer started to get slower and the fan in running in high speed all the time, even if it's cold or I had just turned the computer on.
Can this be a virus? What do I have to do?

Did you install any new hardware? Generally a fan runs faster when it becomes hotter.

No. No new hardware. And the problem is not the fan only. When I realize the fan is running fast and I open the task manager, I see the CPU usage at that point is very high. Looks like an background program running.

Create a directory on your hardrive to save HijackThis.exe. A directory like c:\hijackthis. If you do not do this, you will not be able to use the backup/restore features.

Download HijackThis from:

HijackThis Download Site

Save this file into the directory you made previously and then run the program named hijackthis.exe. When the program opens click on the Config button, then click on the Misc Tools button, and click on the Check for update online button. When it completes checking/applying updates press the back button.

Now click on the Scan button and when it is finished click on the Save Log button. A Notepad window will open with the contents of this log. Click on Edit then click on Select all. Then click on Edit and then Click on Copy.
