    Hi, I am having problems with my laptop overheating when trying to do things on my computer. I dont understand why its overheating, its a fairly new Dell Inspiron 1150.
    It never used to overheat when i first got it, I could run lots of programs and it would be fine. Now it overheats with more than a couple programs running and shuts down. I dont think its the fan because I have checked it and its running okay. I have a little temp monitor and my comp CPU temp will get up to like 76 and it will shutdown. Ty for looking. Here is a hjt log if it helps.

    Make sure you have clearance underneath the laptop. This happened to me once and, it was because there was no air flow beneath the laptop.

    This may or maynot be why you are overheating. OK, here is some more from another winfixer problem (http://forums.techguy.org/t416551.html). This will get you started.

    Download Cleanup from here: http://www.stevengould.org/software/cleanup/

    * A window will open and choose SAVE, then DESKTOP as the destination.
    * On your Desktop, click on Cleanup40.exe icon.
    * Then, click RUN and place a checkmark beside "I Agree"
    * Then click NEXT followed by START and OK.
    * A window will appear with many choices, keep all the defaults as set when the Slide Bar to the left is set to Standard Quality.
    * Click OK
    * DO NOT RUN IT YET

    Download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite http://www.ewido.net/en/download/ Win2K and XP only
    · Install ewido.
    · During the installation, under "Additional Options" uncheck both "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".
    · Launch ewido
    · It will prompt you to update click the OK button and it will go to the main screen
    · On the left side of the main screen click update
    · Click on Start and let it update.
    · DO NOT run a scan yet. You will do that later in safe mode.
    You might print the next part out to use in safe mode.

    Restart your computer into safe mode now. Perform the following steps in safe mode:



    Run Ewido:
    · Click on scanner
    · Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
    · During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK
    · When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
    · Save the report to your C: Drive
    This will take some time to run!

    Run Cleanup:

    * Click on the "Cleanup" button and let it run.
    * Once its done, close the program.

    Go to Control Panel - Internet Options. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button. Click Apply then OK.


    Reboot back into Windows not safe mode.

    Do a Panda Active Scan from this link.
    http://tinyurl.com/9elar
    Be sure to save the log it creates.


    Come back here and post a new HijackThis log, as well as the logs from the Ewido and Panda scans...doc

    Rescan with Hijack This.
    Close all browser windows except Hijack This.
    Put a check mark beside these entries and click "Fix Checked".

    Reboot.

    That won't help with the overheating problem though. It's probably dirt/dust buildup.

    You'll probably have to open the case up and clean it to help the air flow.

    I thought winfixer was harder to clean than that? Wild tangent too...doc

    Usually it is, but their log really doesn't look infected. Just those ActiveX controls that can easily be fixed.

    Edit: Baseball Dude, it would be best to edit your post and remove your MS license number from it.
