xp makes game crawl!

Sorry! me again. playing gta on my super new machine which is at least 20x superior to my last purchase I find that my old machine kicked ass compared to the new one. The only difference is the old used win95 and the new xp. gta crawls and stutters on the new machine (Emachine 620). I do not go on the net or use dodgy disks so I assume I can not have a virus! Any ideas would be greeted with joy.

Right click on the exe file and click compatibity mode and select a mode that byou know the game is happy with (Win 95 or Win 98).

It may well be that your old favourite needs consigning to history ,but good luck.If you type GTA and XP into Google you will find many more hints and tips that might get you up and running.
