I uninstalled the MSI SK application and it had a surprising affect on the CPU temps. The went from an average of 70 deg C to about 45 deg C. The change was rather quick and unexpected. I am still reviewing all other other suggestions and comments to see what other settings I may need to check. There still seems to be something impacted the CPU temps but I have yet to identify it.I'm assuming you're talking about the 'residue' these programs leave behind, and someone told you about CCleaner to get rid of that.
You can uninstall under control panel. The program's files should have an uninstall executable as well. Even if it does leave some dirt behind, it's broken and won't work without all the other files.
Thanks again everyone for you comments and suggestions. I very much appreciate it. This is the most patient and helpful website I have found for my computer issues and questions.
