The CPU overheating can cause the freezing.
As to the dust/dirt , computers are usually happier when they are clean.
You might want to get some "canned air" & blow it out carefully.
A good C drive clean up & defrag may help a lot !
Open My Computer
Right click the C drive & on the menu click Properties
Click on the Tools tab
do a defrag
When that is done go back to the General page & click on Disk Cleanup
Put checkmarks in all the little boxes
Do the cleanup.
If you haven't got it download Malwarebytes,http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti...&tag=button
Install it, do a scan, & remove everything it finds.
