Slow Broadband with Win7/XP duel boot!

Help,
I have a clean install of Win 7 on a seperate HD and XP on another.
Win 7 works great getting full speed over braodband, but XP has dropped right off. Any ideas on whats wrong would be great.

Well, normally it has nothing to do with Windows 7.

It's an XP issue, probably a driver one or you might have some spyware/adware/virus that's eating up your bandwidth.

Suggestions (for XP):

1. Download Spybot SD and install it. Download its updates and do a full scan. Will take about 20-30 mins. It should find many stuff, either related to your problem or not. When found, delete them all and restart.

2. Update your XP lan/wlan drivers
