70% or 91% or 99.9% isopropyl alcohol should do it fine. I've used 70% one and just let it dry for a few minutes after clean up the old paste. You should boot up your pc after you apply the paste only if you install your CPU cooler correctly. It should be fine. I don't see any reason why should you wait before boot up after apply the paste.
