The processor is 2009 vintage
The motherboard is of a similar age
There are no windows 10 drivers on offer for the board or its chipsets
Hence for instance your graphics are using a basic display driver
The ram is DDR2
The system is not suitable for 1o and by that I do not mean that it will NOT run 1o, it will just NEVER run it correctly
Technology moves on and people just have to face the fact that whilst the system may meet the basic requirements for 10 as published by Microsoft, that means very little if there are no proper drives designed for the components or 10

What you do not tell us is what is the connection
hard wired or wireless and if it is wireless what is the make and full model of the adapter

10.0.0.347 was released in September 2016 and appears to be the most current Windows 10 64-bit driver for the Qualcomm Atheros AR5007G wireless device.

There doesn't appear to be a Windows 10 64-bit driver for the NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller 10/100 Mbps ethernet device.

An operating system newer than Windows 7 shouldn't be running in that old slow computer, so I'm not surprised that you're having issues with it.
Besides the speed issues you're having with its wireless device, there doesn't appear to be a proper driver installed for its graphic device.

I know nothing about the Anchorfree HSS VPN Adapter, so I can't comment on it.

Go back into the Device Manager, then double-click these entries to open their properties window:
NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller
Qualcomm Atheros AR5007G Wireless Network Adapter

In the "General" tab, does it say each device is working properly?
In the "Driver" tab, what's the driver version and driver date for each device?

The wireless chip is also an old Wireless G 54Mbit/s card, 12Mbits may be pretty near it's real world performance if the signal isn't perfect. It's time for at least a new wireless card but realistically also time for a whole new computer.

I am so sorry that I was the bearer of bad news in my reply

then of course my good colleague Flavallee posted the same more or less in post 8

I am sure it did not make you feel happy
However as said technology moves on
The cheap interim answer to your problem mentioned by my good colleague Triple 6 is a cheap wireless adapter - usb type
For a few £ it will see you over until and if you decide to upgrade to a newer computer

Just examples you can find them anywhere - as I do not know where you are
http://www.wirelesshack.org/best-wireless-usb-dongles-windows-10-compatible.html

make sure it is ok for 10
NOT only 5GHZ either 2.4 or both
no need to buy expensive ones a TPLink from here
http://www.tp-link.com/us/win10compatibility.html
on the YES for 10 column

will guarantee you the plug and play on 10 without looking for drivers and the one below is under £10 and on the list from TPLink
https://www.amazon.co.uk/TP-LINK-TL-WN823N-Mbps-Wireless-Adapter/dp/B0088TKTY2/ref=dp_ob_title_ce


SORRY I had to leave the topic as per post 7.
Good luck with it

THIS is the USB dual band wireless adapter that I use in my desktop computers that have a wireless connection.
It works great in Windows XP and 7 and 10.
