More than likely your fan needs to be replaced. These small form factor Dells are know for problems like this. Warning! Do NOT attempt to blow out the CPU fan with canned air, as this will likely lodge dust particles in the axis of the fan causing it to drag and become louder!

Check to see what your antivirus settings are set for. With Norton's new "Systemworks" my system got so slow, I almost reformatted the system thinking I had an issue. It was all the "cr*p" that Norton put with it that slowed my system down. I got rid of it and bought McAfee's. Works 1000% BETTER!!!!! I just wanted an antivirus, and through in a good firewall to boot. That was 3 months ago and I'm STILL amazed how FAST my system is now!!! Coug
