Re: pc heats up

Your screen shot reveals your last Engine Version is (2973) Engine Creation Date 5/8/2017?

The most current one is (2988) Created 4/22/2017.

Re: pc heats up

Actually you are behind on updates. Try checking for updates and see if it will update to the current Engine Version please.
