has your motherboard installed a utility in your programes? that is where i find my temps.
also in your bios might show temp. i am not 100% certain. but if you consult your mobo manufacturers web site you should get some info.
also make sure you have checked for viruses, could be that.

also, if you have a bad/old power supply. Sometimes the PSU's that come with the cases kind of suck. All you can do about it is replace it.

That does look like a good program. Too bad its only good for a week.
You can find ur CPU temp by going into the bios. Its easy to find in there.

SOunds again like a PSU defienciency. If you are multitasking, and your power supply isnt adequate, Windows will run for about 7-20 minutes, then randomly shut down. Had that problem once when I put in a new graphics card into an older PC.
