    Open Activity Monitor and post what your highest %CPU is and what %idle is.

    Click on the %CPU so you find out which process has the highest %.

    I don’t see that causing your fan to run where you can hear it.

    What’s the app that froze?

    You might try opening Disk Utility and repairing disk permissions, which is the usual go to fix for a lot of things.
