As my Laptop approaches 3 years old Ive been noticing some things. I'm not sure if its a virus/malware or just old age. I do have Malwarebytes , but it seems to freeze lately when I try to do certain tasks. It does Scan and seems to warn me about certain threads containing viruses...although Firefox does the same. Do I use Chameleon to override the problem? Ive noticed a weird buzzing noise coming from the fan area , is that a lose part or is the fan clogged? When every I try to watch a stream on Twitch or use Facebook for an extended amount of time , the fans become very loud. I'm going to assume its something to do with the graphics card... This isn't a new problem , although over the last few months ive noticed its gotten worse. Most of the day my Laptop is quiet , except when Malwarebytes is scanning or using FB or Twitch...

If the fan is spinning much faster than it used to, it's likely the unit is getting too hot and struggling to keep cool.
