I was on my computer yesterday when it just turned off on me. It made a strange sound when I turned it back on, like a beeping. Then said Thermal Event(Overheating) and to take in for servicing. What does this mean? My computer has been a little slow lately. But now, every time I turn it on it lasts for maybe 10-15 minutes before shutting down again. I ran the full scan from pcpitstop, I don't know, I thought that would tell me if something was broken.
On the spyware scan it found something called vistadrive.exe-this is a win 32 mailer gen. exploit. Doesn't sound too good, and I don't know how to take it off. Could this possibly be whats wrong or is it something physical like a fan or something? Any advice on how I should proceed would be greatly appreciated.
