If your computer is using the fan a lot I think you need to unplug,and take side panels off or slide out of case and blow out all the dust from inside of computer case.Yes you have to do this like once a year,as part of routine maintenance along with disk defragmenting.

How To Fix Overheating Computers: A Computer Cooling Product Showcase Electronics that run faster and better also generate heat, it is a simple law of physics. The more power in an electronic component or circuit the more heat is produced. Central and graphics processors generate lots of heat as well as hard disc drives and power supplies due to their use of larger voltages. A power supply takes 120 volts from your outlet and converts it down to voltages the computer uses for all its electronics, this generates heat. A hard disc drive has a motor that spins the discs around that generates heat as well as the electronics inside the drive. All this heat inside your computer can cause problems with your processor, memory and other components to malfunction and fail. Heat inside your computer can be removed several different ways but the safest and most efficient way is very simple. I will discuss several products to help remove the heat from your PC and show which ones are the most effective and which ones depend more on how you use them than just the fact that you are using them. Placement is the key to all your computer problems with heat. If you have good airflow inside your computer the heat will leave as the cooler room air comes in. This is a simple fact that I learned very long ago while in the military. So in order to have any of the products I describe work to the best of their ability you need to correctly place them and other things inside your computer. In the Air Force and for the equipment we used lots of money was spent to ensure proper cooling of electronics. Bays of electronic components need to be cooled and air just being shoved in is not enough. The air has to flow through the bay in order for the components to receive the benefit of the cooler room air being pushed into the bay. Just forcing air in and not having it go out somewhere makes for a heat build up inside the bay. Dust inside your computer can also cause problems both with air flow and due to some properties of dust itself. A dirty computer will not only fail and receive errors from dust conducting electricity that builds up on components but causes heat to build up as the dust acts like an insulator. http://www.associatedcontent.com/article...

Usually the fan cools down the Central Processing Unit (CPU or Processor) since the processor is processing your anti virus software, it will work harded, thus get hotter, thus making the fan work harder. Does this help? This is perfectly normal. It's just your anti virus is taking up a lot of processing power. if you want to prevent this, Use a different anti-virus program, or use less programs at a time upgrade your computer (Get more RAM or a better CPU)

It could be that it needs to be cleaned. Is it a desktop or a laptop? Desktop, turn it off, unplug it, look around at the screens on the outside of the case. Does it have a lot of lint looking stuff on it? Dirty? you can take your vacuum(Unplug from the Power) and vacuum the lint off the screens around the case. The lint will starve the box from air and make it run hotter. Laptop, if it's on your lap, does it feel hot? set it on the table and see if it still does it. Sometimes setting laptops on pillows or your lap will starve them from cooling air.

Laptop or desktop? If it's a desktop take off the side panel and vacuum or blow out the dust-bunnies; they can clog up the vents causing the PC to overheat.

I was like you when I was 15. Now I am 54. I don't know what happened, but somewhere along the way I learned to calm down and trust God. What you say is true. The world could end soon. You could die soon. Or the world could end a hundred thousand years from now and you could live until you are 90. Faith means believing that God controls the future and that His plans for us are for the good, not for evil. Like I say though, I had to go through drug abuse, alcoholism, and plenty of suicidal thoughts to get to where I am today.The only thing I can say is trust God. He is far bigger and wiser than you or me.
