Maybe switching from XP to Windows 7 may have made a difference. Also...when you had XP installed maybe the weather was cooler & that may have helped your laptop run cooler.

Does smc fan control not work with bootcamp? None of fan control software I'm abate of will detect any of the fans in the mbp. Are you aware of any Windows drivers for these fans? I have already headed most of your suggestions.
Sorry I am not a "Windows Person"...so I am not aware of any specific programs. Try searching with Google...that's exactly what I would do if I had the same problem.

The issue of overheating is not an old problem. Software I had no trouble running maybe half a year ago now overheat my mbp.
Well this may have been due to your running XP previously, maybe due to cooler conditions in your home, and lastly...maybe your computer is dirty inside...and needs to be cleaned.

Hope this helps,
