You probably need to change port settings to allow it. Typically you have to enter exceptions. Do you have a wireless router connected? Have you gone on World of War craft support site to see what ports need to be opened to play the game?
Then you can go to http://www.arrisi.com for info on adding port exceptions.
need more information. are the games you play online? if so, you likely need to uninstall/reinstall either flash or java. also try the games in a different browser. if the games are 'loading' but choppy and bad graphics, you don't have a video card driver installed.
Games are designed with Hardware specs in mind, on the box you will see Min. spec reguirements. Depending on the game, as you stated, there are Graphic options, The games, will play at your machines optimal setting or the games optimal settings. The older/less intence games aren't as graphically taxing and designed for older machines. If you have a machine with good specs, buy the games that are a match for your machine.

In your World of Warcraft directory you have a cfg folder and in it a cfg file. This has all your video settings. You will need to optimize these settings for your display type. Start off in a very low resolution with all your effects disabled. Set any sound effects to 0 as well. Now start the game and go into options. Set the rendering range low and disable other options as you can.
Turn them on a few at a time until slowly until you find what is tripping up your video card.
could be your video card can't handle the graphics! the game box should have a listing of minimal and optimal video and ram requirements. if the game has a 'set-up' option, try lowering the frame-rate and/or video resolution settings. won't look as good, but may still be playable! good luck!
turn your graphics settings down.make sure nothing else is running when playing games.Also most games play ok, but a gaming pc works best.And you say your pc is a few years old things slow down over time.make sure u have all service pack updates and windows/firewalls virus removers running in the back ground will really slow you down.disconnect fron net and shut them down
ok, you can play any game that dosen't exceed your processor speed and memory capability. I recommend upgrading your ram to 2 gigs. this will insure optimal performance. remember, look on the bottom of every PC game you plan to buy and check the minimum requirement on the bottom or back side of the game box. as long as the requirements don't exceed your processor speed and memory, you are good to go. You can PLay WoW on this unit at this point but, be sure to keep the detail level at the medium setting until you get more memory.
