Default Computer is shutting down randomly, and slow performance

Hi, I was looking for some advice. My computer, when running multiple programs sometimes freezes for a second then turns off on the spot.
I wasnt sure what it could be ( im not good with computers ) so I looked on the web, and downloaded speedfan to check the temperature of my hardware. My CPU seems to be running at about 65 degrees with minimal applications running, and about 85 degrees with many ( world of warcraft ) .

Perhaps this is the problem? if so what could I do to solve this?

Please get back to me,

Edit: I found my system spec so il write some of it down .

Processor : Intel Celeron D 352 2.53 GHz
Video Card : SiS 651C ( integrated 64mb)
RAM: 2048 MB DDR-SDRAM (2x 1gb sticks)
Hard Drive: 80gb, 25bg free space
Processor Fan: 1622 rpm

This could just be a dust buildup
