Default Severe Graphic Lag

Today I tried playing one of my favorite older games, Empire Earth, and could hardly do so because it was lagging horribly. I tried setting all of the graphic options to their minimal settings and killing all unnecessary background processes, and it still lagged. It's not the usual lag either but lag to the point that I could hardly get the mouse to the menu button to save my game and quit. I'm not for sure what could be causing this problem (couldn't be a virus or spyware as I always have Antivir running and do regular malware scans). The only thing different between playing it now and playing it normally without lag about a week ago is that I recently installed a wireless card a friend gave me. I don't see how this could affect the game so much, but it's the only thing different that I've done.

Anyways, here's some of the info I figure you'll want.

System specs:
Pentium 4 CPU - 2.4 Ghz
1.5 Gb RAM
Nvidia GeForce 6200 - 300 Mhz GPU, 256 Mb

Game's minimum requirements:
Pentium II 350 Mhz
64 Mb RAM
8 Mb 3D video card
