Is it a new computer or one you've had for a while?

That sounds like the CPU is getting pretty hot going by your temperatures. If it's going over 60c, I'd say it could definitely be a reason for the loss of power. But that will also depend on the ambient temperature so it's difficult to say.

I would definitely run a virus scan on it either way. You should rule out the presence of spyware and malware and if that doesn't fix the random shutdowns, it's probably going to be related to the power supply or a hardware issue.

what bluescreens are you getting? could be hardware. Test hard drive, test memory. the random shutdowns could be just bluescreens if there reboots, if it shuts completely down, then it might be something worse.
