Download Speedfan (The download link is in the first line of the second paragraph), and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows. The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.

Okay, I attempted to take the back off but after removing ALL the screws I still couldn't access the area with the fan. So I just cleaned the exterior vents and blew (with forced air) out the dust I could with removing the parts of the back that would come off.

Your temps don't look bad but because of the limited information there is no way to tell if there is something else running hot in your machine. We will check using a different application. Also it is good to check your temperatures after working on the machine for an hour or so. It is best to do CPU intensive things such as file conversions. I'm think your Idle to full load temps will vary more greatly then normal do to dust insulating the heat.
Download and install Everest Home Edition
Go to the Computer > Summary > Sensor tab on the left. Report your temperatures from there.

What should I do?

and I still haven't figured out how to run Memtest.....

This will only work if your computer can boot to a USB device. There are instructions on changing your boot order in the memtest guide.
