You guys might want to check your computer for viruses and stuff that might be slowing it down. Also shut down your pc properly, turn it on and then restart it again and then try playing and see if it goes faster (my old pc seems to go a bit faster a couple min after a reboot). Short of that if you know something about computers you can always just completely wipe the computer and put everything else on it but that's a pain. Honestly, the program isn't that demanding. I have a decent laptop and I can run the emulator watch a movie and be running steam and a couple downloads at the same time, so its most likely a pc problem.
