I am trying to run Adobe Premier 4 and it keeps freezing up on me. So, now I am trying to locate the problem. Starting at the beginning, do we even have enought processing power?

We have a pentium® D with a 2.80GHz processor. We are trying to run software that requires a Pentium 4 or Celeron 1.3GHz processor. Will the Dell Pentium® D processor do the job correctly?

Yup, a Pentium D is essentially two Pentium 4s squashed together.

If you have a program that is freezing, it may be because of overheating. Pentium Ds are notorious for running very hot. Try downloading CoreTemp and using it to see how hot your CPU is getting while you are running Adobe Premier 4.
