Here is how it starts. Yesterday all day my Dell inspiron 660 was working fine. We moved it into a new case with a new power supply. We get a black screen start up error saying SYSTEM FAN FAILURE press f1 to continue f2 for boot options. I press F1 b/c all the fans a working. Desktop boots to normal windows 8.1 homescreen/desktop. I go to the desktop screen and I have a message stating windows hasn't updated in over 30 days. I says the updates have not been updated in 365k days. I click update now. It says update failed. I figure it might be stopped by me ESET security suite. I try to open ESET and it doesnt work. I uninstalled and reinstalled it. Still wont open. When I try to go to google, It says the security certificate for google is not valid and won't let me proceed. It shows both ESET and windows defender as being off. I turned on ESET but it wont open. Also when I Right click on the desktop background I get a message saying

When I close the box My screen flashes purple for a second or two and goes back to normal.
I tried doing a system restore from 02/28/14 I noticed a box that said the restore point was over 30 days old...
I noticed my calendar was set past 12/2099 and the system date is 03/14/3099
On the MY DELL support page it says my waranty has expired on 05/21/15 and my next scheduled check up is in 2029
The Dell support guy said I have a virus. "usually from a torrent website" I dont even know what that means. I dont DL any movies that arent from Ultraviolet(my digital downloads from the BRD case) I have not gone to a "naughty" website. He said I can pay $240.00 and they'll fix it for me. I asked if a factory reset will solve the problem. He said it will not because my registry is messed up. I don't know if they are just trying to hose me, if I actually have a virus, If my brother installed somethinf wrong when we changed cases and power supply. PLEASE HELP :-) I don't know anything about this stuff.
