XP mode INTERNET faster??

I noticed today that my download speeds went for 1.08 mb/s to 1.34 mb/s when I am in xp mode.

That's possible for many reasons.

Firstly, on XP you have less traffic-intesive services running.. IPv4 on XP, while IPv4/6 on Windows 7. Homegroup polling on Windows 7, but the verly likely culprit is better driver support for your NIC on XP.

Btw, why so bold?

Also in XPM, you have much less running services and applications. Virtualised OSs are bare minimum to get things running.

Just by comparison, currently in Windows 7 I have 64 processes running, whereas in windows 2000 in virtualbox theres only 20.

Disable ip6 in Windows 7 if you don't need it. Gave me about 10% boost.
