Windows 7: CPU temp is very high

I use the same program with my i7 with hyper threading and I am getting correct temps.
If all the programs are showing high temps, then you probably actually have high temps and do what others have suggested and check your heatsink and fan and make sure that the top of the heatsink isn't caked with dust/dirt.

Thanks everyone for the responses. My computer is still under warranty from Dell, so I called them and they ran some diagnostics and everything passed - so I explained to them how the CPU temps were abnormally high and they agreed to send out a tech to replace my heat sink and install a new fan. I would rather them do this in case something deeper is the problem they can figure it out and take care of it. I will keep everyone updated after I get the new parts installed.

That sounds like a good solution. If they mess it up (which is unlikely), then you are not responsible.

This was a picture of my core temps when Dell was remotley connected to my system yesterday, it was at the max like this for about 30 min - that can't be good

Hopefully they come for the repair early next week - until then I will not be running anything that will strain my computer - it runs on avg around 75c

Dell repair came today and replaced my heat sink and fan along with a new motherboard. The heat sink was only half way on, two of the attachment arms were not fasten. The new heat sink was able to be screwed into the new motherboard. Problem is solved. The tech said the high temps would not have caused any harm to the CPU because the computer would automatically shut down if it over heated.
