There is nothing ubuntu can do to your windows installation to make windows run slow or fast. –  Web-E Aug 25 '12 at 15:42
The only impact on having a dual boot is disc space nothing more. –  LnxSlck Aug 25 '12 at 15:45
How much space did you leave windows when you (re)partitioned the disk? –  Nate Iverson Aug 25 '12 at 15:46
This does't give us totally the right question - do you have Ubuntu installed into a Virtual box or is it side by side or through Wubi? –  Tim Botha Aug 25 '12 at 16:25

1 Answer 1

Given its new, smaller size (or, if you installed Ubuntu with Wubi, smaller amount of free space), your Windows partition may have become too fragmented to be used efficiently. Especially if your Windows partition is mostly full, defragmenting it may help. You can both check free space and perform defragmentation in the Disk Management utility in Windows (Start Menu > diskmgmt.msc).
