I place a fan outside vent to blow large amounts of air toward the processor. I've been watching videos, running multiple applications at once, running virtual box at the same time. My processor speed doesn't drop. I think you were correct.

@Dillmo this is an old notebook with lots of problems, I keep it plugged in 24/7 since the battery has less than a planck second of battery life. However, it's been running at optimal processing speed nearly a year under ubuntu before the clock speed started to drop, I think it may have something to do with it over heating, as I tweaked the videocards speed using rovclock (it should be producing more heat).

@K7AAY It never occurred to me that it could be a hardware problem. Is there any way for me to verify that this is the cause?

comment Is there a way to move files between guest and host in virtualbox?
Were you able to get a solution for Windows XP guest? The solutions on this page are for windows 7, the interface is just different enough on Windows XP that I'm not getting any luck. The original question specified Windows XP.
