I pirated some games a while ago, and everything went fine until now. My PC was overheating so I cleaned the vents really well and that fixed it for a while. Now, its hitting 200 degrees F when not running anything, or it acts completely normal. I don't know much about PCs, what should I do?

Will do. I know it wasn’t the best thing to do, I’m just a teenager and don’t have a job so I thought I’d try it

I would also use a virus scanner to check the system, and see what HWInfo amd task manager reports for CPU usage. There might be something in the system that doesn't belong there.
