I have a 1300mhz pentium 3 cpu and the processor in "Windows task manager" is almost always at 100%. I know the basics in replacing(or atleast taking out and putting back) parts in my computer. I want it to run faster because when i play games such as Warcraft 3:Tft, when the units on screen exceed 300 it starts lagging for me and no one else.
Can I replace my slow cpu with another one? If I can which ones? If not is there anything else i could do.

Download WinPatrol from Software Updates-->Security Updates-->WinPatrol 9.7 Released and install it and then get rid of any unwanted processes and then see what happens!
