I suppose yes, it could be possible. Programs such as speedfan allow users to adjust fan speeds on their computers. However, I have yet to hear of such a virus, and to be honest, in most cases motherboards have safeguards against catastrophic fan failure (ie, if fan rpm = 0 system immediately shuts down.) And even if the system didnt have a safeguard chances are the HS would be able to cool the CPU down enough so that it did not *explode*. Chances are the system would start to thermal throttle, and then BSOD.
Higgins is correct about the bios aspect. Most every CMOS chip out there is write protected unless the user disables this. So long as your CMOS is write protected you should be ok.
As to finding out where the virus is, and how to use it, you are at the wrong forum for that type of thing.
