I have an Athlon 1.4ghz THunderbird. What the hell is the SSE instruction set? :/ Premiere and fraps refuse to run for the above reason.

SSE = Streaming SIMD (Single Instruction/Multiple Data) Extensions

SSE was developed by Intel to make certain common operations faster, a bit like MMX/3Dnow etc... the latest P4 core supports SSE3.

The Tbird athlon cores don't support SSE, only AthlonXPs. No way around it other than getting a cpu that supports SSE, or finding a version of those proggies that don't require SSE support... although I'm really not sure there will be such versions.
