I've now come across two strange errors affecting my PC.
First, I've been getting messages saying that my PC is running low on virtual memory and is asking for me to close whatever applications I'm working in that moment, and it slows down my PC's performance to a crawl. I had this problem before, and I thought I solved this problem by going into Systems Properties -> Advanced -> Performance Options and increasing the virtual memory. It worked for two weeks, but now the problem has come back again. I've gone to look at the Properties again, and I realize under where it says 'Total paging file sizes for all drives', it recommends 6123 MB. At the moment, I have 4GB worth of RAM installed. I should mention that I had Steam installed before, and I just uninstalled upon learning it eats up a lot of memory.
Secondly, the fan inside my computer is starting to run loudly every now and then. Admittedly, it's been a while since I've opened the machine and cleaned inside it, and for all I know it could be a dust problem but I haven't gotten around to cleaning it yet before I've finished taking other precautions.
As a precaution, I ran some scanned with AVG, Spybot and MalwareBytes, none of them have returned with anything other than a corrupted registry key. I've also defragmented the registry keys and used CCleaner to get rid of any issues, but none of that has fixed these problems. If necessary, I've uploaded a HijackThis file that I ran in case if anyone wants to see it and finds something that's suspicious.
My PC details are:
Processor: AMD A4-3400 APU with Radeon HD Graphics 2.70 GHz
Installed Memory (RAM): 4 GB
Sorry for the long post, but just thought I cover every precaution I've taken so far.
