Howdy Bing, (love your cherries, btw).
I'd suggest you fill us in on some of your other equipment.
Celeron processors aren't known for their speed and capabilities, but I'm not sure that's the whole problem.
Some tidbits that will help us troubleshoot:
Speed of processor
How much ram
specifically, what audio interface (soundcard)
what OS you're using
Some other ?s I'd have, if your PC is Celeron, then it's probably older, does the HD need cleaning / defraging. Are there tons of processes running in background? Is there virus / malware programs running? Do you actually have virus / malware infecting yer PC.
Have you watched the CPU performance, and/or page file, to see if you're tasking out the system?
