To make it as fair as possible, I tested it on a dual boot system, using 32 bit versions of windows xp professional and windows 7 professional with as many startup items as possible disabled in MS config, using easyBCD to automatically select each OS before running the test, after defragmenting the HDD. Both operating systems have the Comodo firewall and MSE installed, with windows defender and the windows firewall disabled.. also attached is the application I used.. if you want to try it yourself, you'll need 7zip to extract it
