Problems with dual OS'

I have split my hardrive in two and put ME on one and XP Pro on the other (just experimenting). The trouble is everything works really quickly in ME and browsing is instant but when I use XP everything is really sluggish and browsing takes forever! Why is this please?

What are your system credentials?

AMD Athlon XP 2000+
512 DDR
120GB (split in two)

Also when I am in XP a error keeps occuring:

A runtime error has occurred
Do you wish to debug?

Line: 1
Error: Invailid Character

OK the system seems up to it.

Have you cleared the temp files?

Have you set Windows to Update automatically?

These updates maybe downloading in the background.

Making surfing slow as the updating is stealing nearly all of your connection.

Sorry Powerless what do you mean?

Clearing temp files...

Up at the top of IE click, tools, internet options..., delete files.

I have cleared the temp files and there is nothing running in the background and it is just the same. I am stumped any other ideas?

Is there an earth like icon with a windows logo on the task bar?
