There are 2 versions of windows XP. It's Windows XP Home Edition and Windows XP Proffesional Edition. Now, the home edition is a bit bit lighter than prof. edition. If you want your kid to play, install home edition, if you want to do your job on the pc, then install prof. edition.

OK, so when I had XP Pro installed before it ran real slow, painful, would XP Home (if I installed Home) run better or much the same as Pro?

You will hardly notice any difference between home edition and professional. Both will work very slowly. If you want your computer to run fast, leave Win ME.

Well, I agree with skeptic, but there are several programs that can make your pc run faster and if you watch what you install,defrag the hd every week, I think that it'll be fine.

Maybe your pc was slow because of the processor you had? I've got windows XP prof many years and my pc never lags.
