Yes, dual operating systems certainly slow down your PC. You can use Microsoft's Virtual PC or Sun Java's Virtual Box or VMware player to run more than one operating systems. 

 

There is already a Start icon in windows 7. Do you mean a start icon in windows 8? If so, you can search and download a software named StartW8 and install it

As far as I know, it is ok to install two systems in a computer, but they must be in different partition. If you think it is slow for Window 8, you can also check the installed Win 8 partition . Is the space not enough? Becase if the partition size is too small for Win 8, it has some influence on the speed of computer. So, the system partition must be a little be larger to avoid the slow speed.

 

Good luck! :thumbup2:
