Is the new hardware I boutht causing the problem?

Question

I recently had some upgrades done on my computer from the same shop that built it. I noticed that it is now slow to load programs, slow internet connection, and basicaly slow at everything.

After getting a checkup at PC Pitsop, It told me that I had a Celeron Processor.

The Motherboard is a Mainboard P4 , this is what is listed on the box;

P4S5A/DX

Form Factor: FullATX

Chipset: SIS645DX/SIS962L

VGA/Audio:No/Yes

Modem/LAN:No/Yes

DIMM/DDR:2/2

ISA/PCI/AGP/AMR:0/5/1/1

Is the Celeron Processor causing the slow working of my computer?

The shop owner had just fired a worker for stealing from him. I think this same worker upgraded my computer and may have placed the Celeron in it and kept the P4 that I thought paid for and thought I was getting, and stuck it in his pocket.

I just want to know if the Celeron is my problem before taking back to the shop.
