SSE stands for Streaming SIMD Extensions, used by Intel to speed up processing.  AMD uses 3DNow.  I'm not sure why Everest is saying you should adjust your computer to support it, since it's part of the cpu, and PIII's and newer cpus have it.  Does your BIOS have an option to turn off support?

You probably have an older processor that doesn't support it. This is a common piece of advice by tuneup programs; telling you to upgrade your processor!
