every time an application starts up my computer makes a racing noise, like it's starting a race car or something. I have heard my computer start up before, but this system has been the loudest I've ever heard. I have to put it in sleep mode everytime I'm not on it. I've taken it apart and tried to blow dust out of it but sound continues, Please help if you can

Brother's computer had a rootkit, was reformatted, and now it isn't working properly
I did not know whether to post this Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help or in Windows XP Support. I apologize if this is in the wrong place. This is not a problem with my own computer, but with my brother's. He and his family are staying with us for a while and I guess their computer got a rootkit. They...
