What do you mean "over loaded"? Are you actually noticing constant 100% processor utilization, or are you guessing because it's really slow?

Well....what is the precise problem that you're experiencing for you to come to the conclusion that the processor rate is slow?

Is it slow at any particular time? Say, when you're watching a movie or playing a game? What exactly, like Yevrag said, is happening?

There's a 98% chance that's it's not because of a slow processor. Can you post the specifications of your computer? Or if you have a model number that would be even better.

Please, for the love of god, tell me you or somebody else didn't pay over $300 for that.

On a serious note, more than likely the computer is running too many things for the RAM to handle. While it is a slow processor, video playing and web surfing should be easily doable with that setup. However, if too many things are running in the background, that can seriously hamper performance.
