Tried Safe Mode?
Tried sitting it on top of a couple of pencils so plenty of air
gets to the fans? I keep seeing mahcines that are overheating -
but generally they crash properly.

 Keep tapping f8 while the thing's booting up, you'll get a menu
When it's up, do a full scan.
Since you have CA, try scanning with both the Vet and Inoculate
engines.

Re: system dead slow

After the software is downloaded and updated, it is suggested scanning the
system in Safe Mode.

How do you boot to Safe Mode?

By pressing/tabbing F8 (or F5 on some computers/keyboards) during re-boot.

Alternatively,
click onto Start==>Run, type "msconfig" (without quotation marks), click OK.
Then click onto BOOT.INI tab and 'check' /SAFEBOOT then OK and click
Restart.
To go back to Normal Mode, you must access the System Configuration utility
again and click the General tab then click/check the radio button 'Normal
Startup'
- load all device drivers and services'.

Alternatively,
< http://www.superantispyware.com/support.html?tag=SUPERANTISPYWARE
provide
an application called "BootSafe" that simplifies the process of booting to
safe mode. You may access BootSafe from the Start Menu under the
SUPERAntiSpyware folder.
