Yeah, thats too hot. If you're using the stock Intel heatsink it should be around 40c - 55c - idle, and around 65c under load.
Is it the stock Intel heatsink you're using? If so check to make sure the plastic retention clips are all pressed in to secure the heatsink to the cpu.

What kind of cleaning? Is it possible you disconnected the CPU fan?
Also, did you check the temps before cleaning the PC? It's possible that program is giving you bad information.
FYI, 90° is near the point where that CPU will shut itself down, so if it's really getting that hot, don't keep using it.

What does SpeedFan tell you your temps are?
SpeedFan will report the RPMs of any fans connected to the motherboard fan headers. If they're just wired to the CPU, they won't show up. That said, if it's really 90°C, the CPU fan should be going much faster, somewhere in the 3000 - 4000 RPM range.

Currently says CPU 63C / Core 0 70C / Core 1 69C. PC is under less load now though.
All three of those temps have a flame icon next to them, which I'm guessing is bad
Could be that the fan won't spin fast enough maybe?

Is it spinning at all?
I would expect the temps to be lower at idle even if just connected to the heatsink, without a fan, assuming your room isn't somewhere in the desert.
