    What's this annoying noise?

    I got my computer a year ago. It's a compaq, it has an intel pentium D processor, 2.80 ghz, and a gig of ram. A few months after getting it, it started making this loud fan like noise... but only at certain times, like when it was working particularly hard. Like when playing videos or running...

    Solved: Spyware won't go away

    Everytime I run adaware it tells me it's found "e2give" and "prutect." every time I tell it to delete these things, yet every time I run it again, these things are still there. How can I get rid of them?
