An easier solution is to set the priority of the mdrun.exe application to low in the task manager (Ctrl-alt-delete, chose the task manager, in XP or win2k), makes you use the power of the machine more efficient without any slowdown in other applications.

Just wanted to know whether it was any advantage (faster) to run in an linux environment than in windows

 It is possible to run gromacs under windows without hogging 100% of the
I run gromacs on the new Pentium 4 at 3 GHz with hyperthread technology.  I
use the gromacs binaries provided on the web site. With the number of
processors set to 2, Windows uses 50% of the CPU on gromacs and it leaves
50% for
 idle processes. I am able to use the PC for other applications without  any
noticeable slowdown.
