Why did you suspect a virus?

Most of the time games crash due to hardware and drivers, not a virus or an OS issue.

Your post left out machine details so for now I have to write that you take it back to the PC's maker and tell them to fix it under warranty.

Probably stressing that i-3 CPU. Check to see it's fan is running and have someone replace the thermal paste between the heatsink and processor. You do NOT need to remove the processor to accomplish this.
