Hijackthis is a first line tool to examine certain areas of the computer. It does not show everything and lots of malware is hidden from it

To download Hijackthis

go to http://www.download.com/Trend-Micro-HijackThis/3000-8022_4-10227353.html and download 'Hijack This!' self installer. Save it to the desktop or other suitable place. DO NOT just press run from the website Double click on the file and it will install to C:\program files\hijackthis and create an entry in the start menu.
Click on the entry in start menu to run HijackThis
Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.
It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results

Fan always running


Ventilation b> If you are using a laptop computer in your lap or on a cloth for an extended period of time, your computer may be overheating, causing the fan consistently run. Since the computer has little insulation between the surface and the motherboard, the fan stays on. Purchase a cooling pad for the laptop. It can be found at your local office supply store. If you don't want to buy a cooling pad, you can periodically lift your laptop up and sit it on a desk, countertop or another flat surface. Dust b> You computer fan may have accumulated a lot of dust, which causes the fan to run continuously. Purchase compressed air and periodically spray the computer fan to loosen up any dust that may have accumulated. Most computer fans are exposed, so accessing the fan should not be a challenge. b> Technical issues b> In some cases, your computer may have either a defective fan or thermostat. Computer providers, such as Dell, allow you to purchase a new fan and replace it yourself. For thermostat issues, you may have to contact a computer repair professional for assistance. b> Computer is overworked b> Depending on the age of your computer multiple programs that are running can cause it to overheat. Watching a lot of DVDs, playing video games, and listening to music on your computer also can cause overheating. Considering closing some of your programs and rebooting your computer. b> Viruses or spyware b> Spyware can continuously run on your computer, causing the fan to overheat. Spyware is software that may have installed on your computer without your knowledge. Perform a virus and spyware scan on your computer. Download.com offers free or paid software for spyware and virus scanning and removal. http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html Place a tick in either windows software or the all software box on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for IE: Antivirus you might have to try a few times to get it right

Hope you have a anti-virus and anti-spyware program. If so, run it and let it do it's thing. If not, you can download freeware programs and isntall it, run update, and scan.

Free version Bitdefender: http://www.bitdefender.com/media/html/trialpay.html

Free anti-spyware:
http://www.download.com/Spybot-Search-Destroy/3000-8022_4-10122137.html?tag=lst-1&cdlPid=10861988

Free anti-spyware:
http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-2008/3000-8022_4-10045910.html?cdlPid=10844457

MS Defender is also good:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=435bfce7-da2b-4a6a-afa4-f7f14e605a0d&displaylang=en

Definitely use the anti-virus program and any two of the anti-spyware program.

Good luck
