Hello is there anybody out there:eek:
My cpu is running at 58degC, with side of case off. Is this too hot?
Check for faulty fans, dust and loose connections. Also check for and remove any Earthlink software if you have any, as just lately it has started crashing computers running McAfee.
Flash should not effect McAfee at all but you should always have the latest version installed and uninstall any older ones.
Note: there is no flash available for x64 versions of Windows (if applicable).
Will try that.
One of the fans seems noisy.
PC shops sell some very useful cans of compressed air which are good for blasting dust out. Of course running VirusScan will cause the unit to heat up and dust accumulation can make it a lot worse, hence the crashes.
You were absolutely correct.
I removed the fan from the processor and could not believe what I found!
It was like a rats nest, I could hardly see the processor for accumulated dust.
I gave it a very good clean and blew onto it with a vacuum cleaner.
The difference now is unbelievable.
My cpu temperature is now 40degC.
I downloaded Adobe Flashplayer and ran a full scan sucessfully.
My cpu temperature after the scan had risen to 46degC. So again you were right regarding scanning increasing temperature.
I also found that the fan at the back of my box, was blowing inwards. I could not understand the logic of this, so I turned it around.
I was thinking of installing a fan at the front of the box, to blow inwards, my thinking being, it would provide a thoughput of air and could not be a bad thing. What's do you think of this idea?
If there's room for another fan do it, you can never have too few of those. I dread to think what the inside of mine looks like as it's been around a year since I last had the side off.
Now you've got me on the go...LOL.
Anyway, good luck!
Thanks Ex-Brit for your help.
My pc is now running like new.
Glad to help.
