Edit: I've read that USB devices, like a mouse, may interfere with performance in the game. Try removing anything USB. Also check out LucasArts.com for more suggestions. Judging by the FAQ section, there are lots of compatibility issues with different input devices. I've never seen a game that was so picky about the computer it's running on.
Turn off fire wall, update drivers, turn off antivirus, open ports on the router, unpug USB, unplug joystick/game pad, don't run Nero in the background, hold your left eye with your right hand while inserting the disk, and poke out your tounge while starting the game. ...And it MAY work.
Actually I've had prety good luck so far, but I did have to replace my DVD player to read the disk, it only crashes once in a long while, and the slowdowns are only a little annoying. It's still a fun game to play.

You can try to monkey-proof your program, but you'll never monkey-proof the monkey.
