If that's ALL you are doing in the VM, turn off ALL caching for while online. That will help.
Unless you don't mind tossing HD space, I'd go toss ANY part of the OS that is not NEEDED, then redo the drive info, and make the drive a little more than you NEED. [Fonts take up space, music, many apps that come in the OS] Maybe add encryption to the VM files, internally & externally.
