    It started few days ago. My laptop became very hot and very slow with just nothing apart from google chrome with 1 tab open and Windows Live Messenger running. I have tried running scans with MBAM, superantispyware, avira to run the scans and no virus were found. I had to use Balanced mode and even when watching a movie it lags every few minutes. is there any solution apart from formatting? :( the hard disk part is the hottest and sometimes it just shuts off due to overheating.

    I am using Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, core i5 2.27 GHz, 4GB DDR3.
