Why does my computer shut off when it gets warm?

I will be using my laptop when all of the sudden it shuts off. As far as I can tell, it is not caused by a virus or anything on the software side. And when it shuts off, the laptop is warm to the touch. What is the issue here?

"Hey,

Your computer may be experiencing problems on the physical side such as your fan not functioning properly, this may be the cause. The fan that cools the computer might be malfunctioning, so it would be ideal to take it out and try to clean it, if that doesn't work you may need to replace the heat-sink/fan unit."
