Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have a Dell D620 laptop with an Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU T7200 @ 2.00GHz running Windows XP Professional SP2. I have an old legacy program that fails to run properly, this issue is linked to the cpu speed. I need to slow down the processor speed to make this program work. Other than running a third party software ~ I am looking for Intel's alternative option. Your input would be greatly appreciated.


Answers :

One thing you could try (if you have not tried it yet) is to right click the program file, then select "properties" from the menu, then, when the properties screen opens select the "compatibility tab" and check the checkbox "Run this program in compatibility mode for", then choose an "older OS" for your program.
