are you saying that the computer starts up normal and runs fine until you start to do heavy cpu operations?
If so your case might be getting too hot inside causeing the video image sent to the monitor to be corrupted. But that is just a preliminary theory

70C is something to worry about. I don't really trust how accurate that program is though!
I downloaded it and tested it myself, said my Athlon +3500 was at 50C. When it's more like 36C. It appears to read Fan speed, and voltages fairly accurate though.
Try Everest to see what your CPU temps are. But it still is quite possible that your Celeron is infact 70C.
CPU usage and temperatures are somewhat related, a CPU under load, such as a game will increase it's temps. Could be something wrong then with Windows being currupted? 100% while idle is not normal. Was is 100% while loading something, or while you weren't doing anything?

I'd suggest 3 things:
1) Uninstall the Intel video driver, then install the latest updated version from the Intel site (it'll be newer than the one at the Epox site).
2) Check the "cooling train" for your CPU. Ensure that you have a fan that's working to blow air onto the CPU cooler. Then check to ensure that there's thermal paste between the cooler and the CPU (have some on hand when checking this - you may have to add some before using the computer again). If it has the thermal tape instead of the paste, clean off the tape and apply the paste according to the directions.
3) Open up the side of your case and run it that way for a while - see if this improves the temps.
