A quick way to find out if the computer is overheating is to take the case cover off and place a house fan next to the computer and see if it will stay on longer. Also you mentioned Windows XP installed without drivers. have you installed all the proper drivers for the computer. The chip set drivers for the motherboard, Video, Lan, and sound. You should also update windows even though you just purchased an OEM cd win SP II there have been allot of updates since SPII was released and it may not have all of them. I personally am against Registry cleaners unless you have advanced knowledge of the registry system. As posted previously by another senior member the Registry cleaners are written with information given to the programmers from software manufactures the problem arises when software changes and registry entries mimic system entries and are deleted by the cleaner thus leaving the OS inoperable.
Edit: I believe that sparkyuiop meant 60 C
