Windows 7: Mode XP is slow to open files

Mode XP is slow to open files

I installed a graphics software in XP mode. The software works normally but when I open a file of this software on my machine (PC1) The software crashes and the opening of the work done on this software is too slow, but if I get a job done but in the same software that is stored on another computer network software is not slow.

I did a test on another computer (PC2) and when I get work on the network (eg in the PC1), there is slow but when I open a saved work on the same computer (PC2) software is too slow. Does anybody know why this happens? I think it should be something related to XP mode, because it happens in 2 PCs

I've tried to increase memory Windows XP mode and it also did not resolve.

What settings have to do that when you open a saved job does not take so long to open?

I use Intel i7 and Windows Seven Ultimate 64bit

Thank you for your attention.

It is slow because you are running a computer inside another computer and the resources are shared between the two.
IT WILL ALWAYS BE SLOW. XP Mode is not designed for heavy applications.

Why?

But why is slow when I try to access my PC at work and when I try to access jobs on another PC is not slow?

How can I fix this?

Windows 7 / Windows XP Mode
 
 
Solved!

Uninstalling the Microsoft KB2607712 update worked for me.

I am running Windows XP Mode on a Windows 7 Pro box.
With the update in place, XP was VERY slow navigating files in the Windows 7 file structure. Once the update was removed - fast as lightning.
