Does anyone know where I can obtain a free Internet Web Accelerator for a dial-up connection?

You don't need one. Those programs are all snake oil.
They function (supposedly) by compressing the data you send over the line.
As that is only a fraction of the total data (most data comes to you after all) the effect is negligable (which these programs usually mask by all kinds of hocus pocus numbers and graphs).
Also, your modem (if 56k at least) already compresses that data itself.
