certainly plausible. there are known issues with the TCP stack in windows. (or, more correctly, in the manner in which Tor currently interfaces with the host TCP stack in windows [0])

I'm thinking of trying to install Tor on another system running XP Pro but I don't know if this is likely to make that much of a difference..

it will run better. just how much depends on a number of factors. may solve your problem, may not...

Any suggestions/advice would be welcome.

XP Pro or perhaps a virtual machine running bsd/linux running Tor would both be an improvement. i'd be interested to know which, if any, of these suggestions resolves your problem.
