How old is your computer?  SSE2 was introduced in 2001.........it's 10 year old technology.

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------

CPUs supporting SSE2

[edit] Notable IA-32 CPUs not supporting SSE2

SSE2 is an extension of the IA-32 architecture. Therefore any architecture that does not support IA-32 does not support SSE2. x86-64 CPUs all implement IA-32. All known x86-64 CPUs also implement SSE2.[citation needed] Since IA-32 predates SSE2, early IA-32 CPUs did not implement it. SSE2 and the other SIMD instruction sets were intended primarily to improve CPU support for realtime graphics, notably gaming. A CPU that is not marketed for this purpose or that has an alternative SIMD instruction set has no need for SSE2.

The following CPUs implemented IA-32 after SSE2 was developed, but did not implement SSE2:
