Optiplex 210L CPU Fan very loud

December 24, 2012 at 12:43:31
Specs: Windows Porfessional XP
After the cumputer starts up and until I write my password everything runs smooth. Then when the desktop appears suddenly with its icons, the fan starts to get very loud. After I choose a task or select for example, iTunes it continues running very loud until the programs loads up, then it quiets down. Can you help

It wouldn't hurt to run AdwCleaner from this link:

AdwCleaner Usage Instructions:
Using AdwCleaner is very simple. Simply download the program and run it. You will then be presented with a screen that contains a Search and Delete button. The Search button will cause AdwCleaner to search your computer for unwanted programs and then display a log showing the various files, folders, and registry entries used by these programs.
To delete these unwanted programs simply click on the Delete button, which will cause AdwCleaner to reboot your computer and remove the files and registry entries associated with the various adware that you are removing. On reboot, AdwCleaner will display a log showing the files, folders, and registry entries that were removed.

When's the last time you opened the case & cleaned it?
