Hi, I am not sure if I have a virus or not. I ran malware bytes and it found nothing, and then I ran EST scanner and it found two viruses and I deleted them. I did a scan because my laptop was running loud and hot, and when I would stream videos, the videos would be extremely slow. After I removed the viruses, I blew compressed air into the fans and a lot of dust came out. It seems to be running much cooler, according to speed fan (not exactly sure how to read it), but the temps are at least 30 degrees cooler. But it is still running loudly. I don't know if this is related to a virus or if it's something I should be concerned about or how to fix it, etc. Thanks for your help.

Yes, but I wasn't getting any responses and the ones I did get didn't solve my problem.
