Those temps are high. I would suggest Buying some new thermal paste. Take your computer apart. Carefully remove the heat sync and fan off the processor. Clean it anyway you can. Maybe some rubbing alcohol and Q-tips. And wait for it to completely dry. Wipe the old Thermal paste from the bottom of the heat sync and and on top of the processor and reapply. You can find a video on you tube on how to do this if you are not 100% comfortable. Also just make sure all your fans are working in your computer.
