Good evening Boopme,
Hiya, Is the fan still running hard?. This may not be malware, can you plug it in again and see if the error reproduces. And note it.
Look in the task manager again,Proceesses. I am only interesred in something running at more than 10 in the CPU column. if something is. Give me the number and name of that process.
