I want my laptop computer ro run faster and cooler. It has been slowing down and heating up since the past three weeks. Internet explorer is freezing very easily and more frequently. And windows explorers and the start menu have a significant pauses before appearing. When I initially startup the computer, svchost.exe runs at 345k. No BSOD's yet. No error screens, however I fear they are coming.

According to Speccy, my disk drive is at 50C Degrees which is warm and not good. My fan has been running a lot more lately and I am concerned.

I found a similar thread on the forum and so I followed the advice. I just ran the CCleaner Slim, Speccy and Process Explorer.

Here's the Speccy http://speccy.piriform.com/results/rqlK6wJNf80BTQepMTESR2u

And attached is process explorer text file.

Thank you in advance!

I'm not sure if this will help, but you could buy some cooling pads from any shop that sells technology and all that stuff. It's a disk, with a usb attached to it. Just plug in the usb into your laptop and it will cool your computer. I'm not sure how that works because I've never used one myself, but they do work in some way or other.
But I know that the speed of you computer depends on the heat of it. The pads might help a bit.

First thing I would check is your fan and heat sink, they may be plugged with dust.
