Make sure that all fan vents (intake, exhaust) are clear of dust and lint. It might be affecting your cooling.

Yes, clean out the vents, and also get rid of excess bloatware that may be slowing it down. You may need to run a defrag and use CCleaner to clean out some of the things eating up the processor.
