The fix you are looking for is the q811493 update. Afater you apply that update you may also want to try turning off all the special effects that XP loads with. This should have a significant improvement on how fast it is.
1. Right click on "My computer"
2. select properties
3. Select the Advanced tab
4. Under Performance, select settings
5. Select adjust for best performance.

This will turn off all the special effects that XP loads. However, if you would like to retain the look of XP then follow steps 1-5 bove and then select the last check box in the list labeled: Use visual styles.....

You should notice a significant performance increase immediately.
