Best video program for single core processor

My computer has a socket 939 AMD chip but is only a single core processor. My older Roxio Easy Media Creator no longer works correctly, I think due to all the Windows updates. Even after wiping out the program and reloading from the original disks, I have functionality issues. I tried upgrading to WMC 10.0 but it just bogged down my computer and when I finally got a DVD assembled and went to Burn, the processing locked up. I have 2 GB of memory which was plenty for my Roxio 7.5. My question is whether there is a good program out there which will run with a single core computer or am I all wet in thinking the Windows updates have changed my processing to the point certain features of the Roxio 7.5 is no longer functional? As always, any help is greatly appreciated - that is unless the advice is to dump my computer and buy a new one :-)

Video processing requires meaty hardware. The bottleneck will be the processor. Video processing on a single core processor is perfectly possible but it'll never be fast.

Roxio 7.5 doesn't work with Windows XP Sp3, IE7 or IE8 or Windows Media Player 10, 11 or 12. It's apparently very fickle.
