According to the specs OpenOutcome posted, your processor and RAM dont meet the minimum requirements. More RAM can be added but your out of luck on the processor. It can be replaced but would be more cost effective to get a new PC.

Cilix speaks the truth. CPU's are crazy priced. One thing though..

CPU's can overclock to pass system requirements. As your close, maybe just upgrading your RAM would be fine. For example:
I bought Crysis not knowing the processor requirement for Vista was 3.2 GHZ. From my system info you can see that I only run on 3.0. BUT - The game works prefect :)

Let's do some basic cleanup now to make sure remnant files are out. Do the next steps in order and let me know how everything is working when you are done.


Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.
Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
If you use Firefox browserClick Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
If you use Opera browserClick Opera at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
For Technical Support, double-click the e-mail address located at the bottom of each menu.


When that is done

Download Auslogics Defrag from the link in my signature below. Auslogics Defrag in my opinion is better because:

It does a more comprehensive job at Defragging
It will actually show you what it is doing
At the end of working it will show you how much speed you picked up
You can view a online log of the files that Auslogics defragged
