Limiting CPU usage on Windows XP

I was using Divx Video Converter to convert media files into .divx files so that I can play them on my dvd player. But, everytime I start to convert, the program takes up 85% of CPU, the temperature goes up and the laptop gets shut down.

Later I found a tool called BES that can limit the CPU usage of a process. Now my laptop won’t shut down.
