    Possibility that it might be overheating. When you run a virus scan it will heat even faster. If you don't know the temp you can download this utility. I don't think you even have to install it. Just double click it on your desktop then scroll down to "sensors". You can find it here;


    It's called "SWI" (Systems Info for Windows)
    Good Luck
