Windows 7: HP Update - Very Loud Short Fan Noise

HP Update - Very Loud Short Fan Noise


My HP laptop keeps asking to update, so did the update, and after around 10-15 minutes my fans made a very loud (like a hair-dyer) but very short noise O.o

Is this normal or some form of weird malware?

Added some screenshot to provide more additional information about the update; Core Temp is added to show the temperature which it suddenly rose to very very quickly!
