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.
Please do the following with Speedfan open on desktop...
To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop
Attach it to your next reply

Your motherboard utilities disk should have a monitoring program (or check for a more recent version on your motherboard or PC maker's website). If none, I recommend CoreTemp for newer Intel and AMD64 CPUs. SpeedFan is a great and popular alternative, or you can try Motherboard Monitor. Unfortunately, I have found that these programs often have problems properly identifying and labeling the sensor they are reading. The temperatures shown are as accurate as the inexpensive, low-tech sensors will allow, but it may say System Fan instead of CPU Fan. Fortunately, the programs do allow you to edit the labels, so I use Everest to verify the temperatures (as it is able to put sensor to label correctly), then edit the label in the monitoring program. In Everest, look under Computer > Sensor, then wait a couple seconds for the readings to appear. Unfortunately, Everest does not minimize to the system tray to show real-time temperatures, otherwise, you could use Everest instead of the others.

If desktop when was the inside blown out with a can of compressed air?
Pay close attention to the following 3 fans... CPU(most important), PSU(clean vents all the way around it), and the second case colloing fan. This one is located usually in the front or in the back above or below the PSU depending on where it is.
Also if possible you may need to replace the heatsink compound. My esteem colleague can explain that process normally better.

If that fan is not turning or is being blocked by a wire or connection it can cause the cpu to heat up and then cool down when the fan turns normally.

No finger cleaning, but as rshaffer61 said, a can of compressed air, is the only tool, you should use.
Don't worry about that -13C temp. Most likely, non-existing sensor.
