Audio is easy...requires little ram to operate. Video today needs 2 GIGABITS or more for VIDEO. A lot depends in the Motherboard Processor also. If it is old, the main processor is no doubt slow. High speed internet is faster than some computer speeds and thus the computer is trying to buffer (catch up) which causes means conditions to occur. Lag time with Video is one problem.
Windows operating system is another. Win 8-10 are ok, but older OS's are slow. THEN we have a Video Card problem. Old cards require new drivers to keep up with changes. Some old Video is slow because the VIDEO RAM is too slow and old. Solution = a New 2018 Computer
Slow computer If you have a virus program installed, it is most likely is running a scan on your hard disk. It can slow down your computer especially if you have a large hard drive. After scanning is completed then the computer will be faster. To make your computer (hard disk) lean and mean, uninstall any programs you do not use. Also you need to maintain your hard disk by running Disk Cleanup this will remove old temp files and old compressed files etc. This will reduce the number of files the virus scanner has to scan. Plus running Defrag. this makes your files contiguous so the system can access files off the hard drive quicker because it does not work as hard.. Disk Cleanup and Defrag should be carried out at least once a month. If you have 512Mb of RAM installed then installing more RAM will speed up your computer. After installing your graphics card, you may need to disable the built-in graphics card in the BIOS for the new graphics card to work properly.
Could be a virus. I had a similar one, and I had to format harddrive and install windows from scratch (was not recoverable). if you can get logged into windows, go to microsoft and download their free virus protection. if not, go buy a new emachine.
Every file you download or program you install is going to slow down
your Dell computer. It has been often observed that as a computer
becomes old or is used repeatedly, it tends to perform sluggish while
downloading or accessing files\programs etc. or throw errors randomly..... Here steps to make dell computer run faster
Probably, having more RAM would make VMWARE run faster.

Check the manufacturer's web-site -- surely, they have a version which *DOES* work as a "native" application under Windows XP and Windows VIsta and Windows 7, i.e., no need for "compatibility settings".
I would suggest rebooting more often as the OS has memory leaches that slow the computer down over time. Rebooting clears this up. Its a pain but works. Also remove programs using the program removal in the control panels as it will clear unneeded software that may be running on your computer. Backing up important files and doing a clean install is the best way to get rid of nasty malware that finds its way from the internet to your computer.
A new system of course would be way faster but money is money, what is your time worth to put into this computer? is it worth wasting or get a new computer?
Dialup phone lines usually only transmit a minimum of 8 Baud. NetZero's high speed (5X) faster is done by caching pages you have already visited, not actially running internet but loading pages faster on your computer. Check your modem setting, 56k, 112K are normal speed setting to connect. Check your actual connection speed, 28.8 is probably all that you are getting on dialup.
