    have you tried shutting down apps that you dont need while playing the game, things like MSN and so on? If you have one of the more recent versions of Norton anti-virus which has a mad passion for scanning every mortal thing that goes to the hard disk then I would recommend disabling that while playing.

    Also when you say it goes normal speed when you quit the game to your desktop, do you mean you have exited the game or minimized it and then maximised it and continued playing?
    If you have exited the game then of course it will run faster as your system is not having to work out all of the game data and do the graphics rendering

    What exactly are the specs of the system you are playing on?
