No, one would not affect the other. But my guess is both of your operating systems are running pretty slow.
I'd suggest trying to get your OS X partition up to about 20GB free and Windows at least 4GB free space.
I use 15% as a measure because that is the point when you will
begin to see the effects of a full drive. 20% is better and I maintain a minimum of 25% on all system partitions. This is not as important with only data partitions, but even with those I refrain from going below 10% free.
It's really time to start considering a larger drive.
If freeing up space does not help, it does probably 80% of the time, this is also one of the signs of a failing drive the other 20% of the time. And it could be a combination of both.
I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
