Dell Inspiron 7370 Temperature Shooting Up

Hello. I have been using the Dell Inspiron 7370 for a couple of years now and I have always been experiencing overheating problems. I was able to handle it normally but situations became worse. Just today I was having issues with Microsoft Office so I decided to reinstall it. Just within 5 minutes of downloading, with no other apps opened, the fans started to ramp up until its max and I checked the temperature, which appeared to be at 90 degrees average. I force-closed the download, reconfirmed it in the task manager and shut down the laptop for a little while. After several minutes I turned it on, browsed the web and within 10 minutes the fans ramped up again, and temperatures shot up to 90 degrees once again. I closed all opened software, confirmed it by checking task manager, and left it idled. For 5 minutes straight the temperature maintained at 90 degrees and the fans didn't seem to slow down, although it was confirmed that ALL apps were closed. I shut down, waited another 5 minutes, and the same thing happened again. Did the same thing for a couple of times until I decided to not use it. Can anyone provide me with a solution? On a side note, the TurboBoost is turned off, the bios and everything is up to date, and have tried every solution I see on the internet, such as adjusting the power settings in Control Panel and keeping the vents dust-free. Looking forward to a response. Your reply is highly appreciated.

Clean out your cooling system it's probably full of dust, blocking air circulation
