MS Virtual PC 2007 Lagging Slow Interface (Mouse pointer trails)

I have a problem with Virtual PC where the system is really slow and the whenever I move the mouse pointer it leaves a trail. None of the mouseovers work. the menu items keeps its blue background.

My host system is Win XP Pro SP2 and the guest vm machine is Windows Server 2003 R2.

This thing is extremely sluggish. I have attempted to create an entirely new vm thinking my old one was the problem, only to find that I cannot get through the install process of the OS on a new one because it is so sluggish.

I have no idea what to do.

UPDATE: I have a dual monitor set up. One my primary monitor it is really slow. On my secondary monitor it functions as normal. Perhaps it has to do with the graphics card or display set up. I have an ATI Mobility FireGL V5700
