My computer is constantly running the fan on high for short as well as long periods of time, it is really annoying, yet the case remains cool to the touch, so I don't believe that the computer really is overheating!
I have been infected before, and so I decided to format my hard drive and upgrade to windows 7 from Windows Vista. I thought that would fix the problem, well it didn't!
What ever is controlling this system keeps coming back, and I'm afraid that at some point my CPU fan will stop working.
I have Microsoft Security Esssentials
Malware Bytes, Spybot Search & Destroy installed
Are there any infections that can control your CPU fan speed,a nd cause it to run on high?
I really need help in resolving this!
I really don't want to have to reformat and start over again!
