False pop up saying my computer is overheating

- - Latest reply:  VVen0m - Nov 26, 2018 at 04:51 PM
Hello,

I have a problem, and I can't find anything about it on the internet.
I have Windows 7 OS, and basically what happens is that suddenly a pop up shows in the middle of the screen saying, that my computer is overheating, the text seems to be in bold and is in english, even though my computer language is polish, and I can't close it. I have installed a program that checks my computer temp. but it shows that everything is ok. Also, every time this happens my fan falls suspiciously quiet. I'm sorry, if this is not the correct forum for this type of question, but I'm really concerned this might be a virus and I couldn't find anything about it.

Hi,

Have you tried Malwarebytes or AdwCleaner, in order to check your computer for malwares ?
Oh, I actually didn't, doing it rn, I'll tell you if it finds anything
Ok, scanning has ended, it found nothing only PUP.Optional.InstallCore, which I sent to quarantine, but nothing else

Let us know if you see these popups again. If this happens, try to do a screenshot with ALT + PrintScn

Oh,I forgot to mention, it's not the first time this happened to me, first time was about 2 months ago. I tried restarting, but it didn't work, so I unplugged it and checked my fan, everything seemed fine, so I plugged it back in, and it seemed to help...?
