You don't need a program... just go into bios and adjust the clock the speeds there. It's not THAT old... I have an older comp... p3 5500mhz... about the same.... then my really old old old comp... pent. 1, 16mb of ram, 170mb hd... oh yeah....

It's not hard... When you first boot up the comp, press either f10, f1, delete, or whatever the screen says (it should say which key is for bios) and then go into it and then look for advanced settings and then clock speeds and then adjust it as need be. I don’t really know of any such programs other than video card oc’ing through the actual install, click on this, change that, etc. It’s most stable to do it through bios… trust me… noobs can do it… I did it when I was a noob… believe me…. I did find this...
