Cory Posted June 17, 2011 Report Share Posted June 17, 2011 I’ve often advocated the use of VMs here and I had a bad experience recently so I thought I would pass on what I discovered. I was told the XP Mode with W7 was Virtual PC but it is not. My VMs that worked just fine before ran at glacial speeds in the built in VM. I looked online and found hundreds with the same problem and others that it ran fine for. I uninstalled the system component and installed Virtual PC 2007 and not only is it super-fast but I have a lot more control and options. My advice is to dump What comes with W7 and install the free Virtual PC 2007. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
