Nvidia GeForce GT 630M reaching up to 95 degrees, need easy to use software which can help manage my GPU (CPU if possible)

I have a Toshiba Satellite P850 Laptop with this GPU and a integrated Intel HD 4000 GPU.

I know it's fairly old, but it does pretty much everything I need to do still.

However recently I have been emulating some Wii games and it plays them decently but my GPU and CPU (Intel Core i7-3610QM 2.3 GHz) have been getting extremely hot while playing.

It occasionally slows down for around 2 minutes at 30 FPS which is horrible to play with. I believe this is when it considers the temperature as overheating so it slows down.

Is there any software which can help with this heat issue for my laptop? I already use ThrottleStop for my CPU which helps a bit.

I have GPU-Z and stopped using MSI afterburner.

You need to get to the heart of the problem. Try opening up the laptop and blowing out any dust.

I've tried opening it before with no success. I don't know much about computers in general and it's pretty worrying if I end up messing it up.

It's a weird model, to open the whole thing you have to take the keyboard off as well which was what I got stuck at before. However I can try and get some dust out since I haven't done that in a while but I don't think it will help much.

I have cleaned everywhere I could with my small duster for the outside of my laptop and currently have around 80 degrees on my CPU and GPU after playing one game. It's helped massively and hopefully it will stay like that since I've only played a little so far.
