A clocked processor?

So, I bought a new dell computer not long ago. The processor was a Celeron 3GHz. I checked my system properties the other day and noticed that my processor is only 2.66GHz now. I have talked to a few people about it, and they mentioned something about it being clocked and say that it happens with Celerons. I'm not sure what this means and I have no idea how to fix it.

Is there anyway of fixing this??

The system is probably set up in such a way that the actual clock speed slows down when its not doing anything that needs all that power. Therefore if you was to fire a (intensive-ish) game up, the speed would ramp up to 3Ghz again until you shut the game down.
