I noticed the problem started when I switched from IE8 to IE10.

 

we also tried chrome and the problem is not there so I assume there is something associated with IE10 and flashplayer

flashplayer caused numerous problems including lockup. had to quit lots of programs with task manager

 

finally switched back to ie8 and it worked flawlessly until most programs quit supporting it and forced us to upgrade to ie10 or 11

IE depends on your video driver.  Possibly yours just isn't good enough.  Did you try watching the temps with speedfan?

Try Version 4.51.  Appears 4.52 has a problem.  http://filehippo.com...speedfan/60186/

speedfan screenshot attached

 

and in the screenshot, some new icon popped  up on the desktop when I ran speedfan from the download, initdebug.

 

I tried to delete it but it says there is no path specified

Apparently initdebug shows up sometimes after you install speedfan.  It's supposed to be removed during the install but sometimes it doesn't go away.  It's harmless.

Normal or at least usable is anything under 65 C.  If any of your temps go over that while watching a video or playing a game then expect problems.

 

I suppose it is also possible you may have a memory leak.  If you run Process Explorer

Save it to your desktop then run it (Vista or Win7+ - right click and Run As Administrator).  
 
 

and click on the column header for Working Set a few times you can sort them by biggest memory users.  Run your video or game and watch to see if one process moves up to the top and keeps increasing.  Also watch the Physical Usage down at the bottom.  See if it hits 100%

any way to drop the temps? I recently replaced the fan and thermal paste

I don't think it's that bad.  Switch it back to show degrees Centigrade.    That's what I'm used to seeing.

 

Speedfan automatically considers 50+ C to be hot but as long as they stay under 65 C under load there is usually no problem.
