10.4: A speedup tip for Parallels Workstation

You can also speed up XP by turning off all of the "impressive" effects. Just go to System Properties->Advanced->Visual Effects and select adjust for best performance. It basically makes it look like 2000 and run substantially faster. On my real windows system it went from being unbearable to usable for a windows box. That is until you ad your virus checker, spyware checker, firewall, and a ton of other corporate requirements.
