The wattage in your power supply? minimun should be 300, 400 watts is better JL
Could be a defective sensor, but this wouldn't produce real glitches in your running programs. A defective motherboard could. So could a defective CPU.
If it was a P4 I'd be looking for a badly seated CPU heatsink but I've read the Athlons have no thermal protection so if that were your situation, as you say, your CPU would be fried by now. Check the documentation for thermal protection on the Athlon XP.
It wouldn't do any harm to remove the CPU heatsink and put some thermal compound on it before putting it back and checking for good contact. Then check your temperatures again.
