And of course making more noise, it started happening after a Windows Update (the fans of my PC always run faster when a update is ready for some reason) was installing (while shutting down) but the thing is the update failed or crashed, it stayed at 70% for around 5 hours (I left the pc on at night thinking it would shut down itself after the update, as usual). Then in the next days I did install the updates and it went alright, but I still have the fans problem...

I have also cleaned it from the inside and checked for malware.

You could check in the Bios for a setting that controls how often the fan comes on. It might have changed if the Cmos battery is low voltage.

What make and model computer is it ? Laptop or Desktop ? If self built what motherboard is it ?

Also please run this and paste the result into your next reply :- http://static.techguy.org/download/SysInfo.exe

Thanks, those temps look reasonable.

Let's see how they look when the Cpu is at 100%, please download Prime95 64 bit :- http://www.majorgeeks.com/mg/get/prime95,2.html

Unzip and run the prime95.exe file, Options > Torture test, select the top test. Open HWMonitor and watch the Cpu temps, when they stop rising take another screenshot and post it please.
