In XP check the task manager to see how many things are running.

Define "slow". Can you give an example of something you do in XP that seems unusually slow?

The one thing that slows down computers the most is Anti Viruses. Are you sure you have the same anti virus on your Windows 7 boot that you have on your Windows XP boot.
