Well here's the story, I downloaded a virus today and it started to delete DLL's, I shut down my computer then rebooted and once it had started up I did a system restore for about 3 hours ago, now all of a sudden my computers fans are blowing like crazy, my CPU fan is at about 3k RPM idle, normally 2kish, and my HDD read/write is always at about 6mbps. So geekforums, wat do?
