Question about Computers & Internet
Yes, you need to turn it off and let it cool down. Also, you may want to check inside (or get a tech to do it) to make sure all the fans are running correctly. Make sure the laptop is on a solid surface, such as a table so that it can breathe. I am not sure why they named them laptops because really you shouldnt place them in your lap, on a bed or any other clothing surface, they can overheat and catch fire that way.
I have had the same problems with downloading updates. I have tried everything. I blame Vista and don't think there is anything we can do about it until the bug is fixed....security pack 3 maybe...not released yet.

The burning smell you are experiencing could be hair, dust and debris that is stuck in the ventilation ducts and grills, power down the system, remove the battery. Get a few cans of compressed air from an office supply store. Now, take all the access doors off the base of the computer and using short bursts of air from the cans start blowing out the dirt and debris in the cavities and spaces on the computer. Make sure you pay very close attention to vents and fan grills, there could be a large amount of dust, hair etc. there stuck in the vents. If the smaell is more plastic in nature, shut the system and leave it down and seek professional tear down help.
