Time to clean out the computer. What is happening is the fans are speeding
up to cool the processor. The processor is going into a slower mode to keep
from making so much heat. The faster the processor runs or the more load it
has on it the hotter it gets. If the fans have collected junk on the blades
or there is a layer of dust on the cooling fins the processor will overheat.
Turn off the computer, open the case (if desktop) and after grounding
yourself to the metal case blow out the junk collected in it. Also
carefully wipe the fins on the processor cooling fan (if equipped.) If
laptop I recommend taking to a reputable repair shop to open it up and clean
it out. Big box stores and geek squad types of places are NOT reputable for
working on computers.
