My computer runs smoothly with just the desktop displayed, but after opening the Internet, the fan starts acting up and does not let down even after I close all windows (though the only thing I did was open the Internet window). I don't restart or shutdown my computer often, but while its like that, my computer does not shutdown or restart properly (it takes close to an hour just to log off and several more to shut down -- I have to manually shut it down). Would the problem lie with the fan, an application, or is something else the main cause?

After you are finished with the virus scans, check the CPU heatsink and fan for proper operation. :thumbsup:

The heatsink should be absolutely free of any dust, as well as the fan. You might want to remove it and reapply the silver thermal compound.

Some motherboards have a spot in the BIOS that wil tell you the temp of the CPU and/or motherboard.

There is an application called Speed Fan that will list the temp of the CPU, motherboard and hard drives.

Good luck.

I've done what was recommended and it was working for a while, but the fan started acting up again after after some time (around 12 hours). I'm not doing anything differently with my computer compared to before. Should I replace the fan, or is it some other problem.

The Speed Fan application notifies that Temp2 is 52 deg C...what is Temp2?

Hard to say what is Temp 2. It depends on where they put the sensor. It might be the CPU or it could be the System Board.

I would consider getting a new Heatsink/Fan combination. They have some that are so much more efficient than the stock fan. It shouldn't cost more than $20 or so.

Just make sure you buy a heatsink / fan combination that will support your CPU and you should be fine :thumbsup:
