Yes, much faster, the minimum amount of memory XP needs to run fairly smoothly is 512MB of memory, especially if you have onboard (shared) graphics as this will be taken from your initial memory as well. So to sum up if you have 128MB ram in at the moment and your graphics memory just to run a normal application will use a minimum of 8MB, take this away from 128Mb = 120MB, if you run a dvd film or a game upto 64MB will be used leaving 64MB for the system, not to mention the memory programmes take to start up quiker the next time you use the programme.

I would like to upgrade my Windows Media Player 11 to WMP 12, how can I do that? Thanks.

Sad to say that Windows Media Player 12 is only for OS Win 7. You can't install WMP12 on XP OS.

Hello,

Yes that is possible. Windows Media player 11 works on all Windows XP SP2 Editions. Please use following link for your download...

Since the Microsoft Site detects which OS you are using, it would be recommended to initate this download within a XP installation.
