descriptionWarning about cooling system on Toshiba laptop

more_horiz
I have a Toshiba Satellite L775 laptop that has just now displayed a warning saying there is a problem with the cooling system and that the computer should be shutdown imeditately and taken in for service,  This is the first time I've ever seen this message.  The unit does not feel hot or run slow, seems to be fine except that warning.  I just ran a virus scan with the latest web root and Malware bytes. Mabam did find one pup:

Here is the log:

Consider using a usb-powered external cooling fan assembly [one giant fan or twin fans] all the time the laptop is being used. My two laptops have such devices, and while they can get quite warm, they no longer get hot and suddenly shut down.

If you have valid warranty you should take the laptop for repair, because the CPU fan is malfunctioning this issue has nothing to do with malware if the error message displayed soon after you have power on the laptop.
