    Try cleaning out the dust that builds up in the fins of the CPU heatsink.
    You may have to remove the fan to do this..

    You would be surprised how much dust accumulates inside a PC so, as Mike has
    advised try removing the fan from the CPU and giving the fins a good clean.
    You might also try removing the cover from the PC (as a temporary measure)
    just to see if the same thing happens when more air is allowed into the
    case. It may be that a good clean is all that is needed.

    None the less, it wouldn't hurt to give the CPU/Heat-sink a clean out every
    now and then with a compressed-air can (available from most hobby/computer
    shops).

    It is almost certain that you have a dust mat on top of the fins below the
    cpu fan. Remove the fan, by unscrewing the 4 screws holding it in place, and
    clear the mat. Replace the fan afterwards. Blowing the mat out is unlikely
    to work.

    Check and remove the dust build-up on your graphics card cooler and in the
    case generally while you have the case open.

    I see this problem regularly with older systems.

    It isn't a software problem, the most common cause of overheating is dust in
    the PC case, a clogged fan, a fan that isn't running at the correct speed,
    dust on the fins. Have you actually taken the back of the PC and tried
    running the memory intensive programs that way to see if the same thing
    happens?

    It's either that or your CPU cooling fan is dead or almost dead.

    Either way... you have to open your computer to look. Don't post back
    UNTIL you have done that.

    Classic PSU overheating because either the Fan has almost or stopped or full of dust. When the PSU overheats it affects the CPU heat by the low voltage to the CPU fan will not be there completely and also the computer will shut down.

    After shutdown I bet you can open again after 5 minutes and things will be almost normal for another 10-20 minutes and the issue will start again
