Or more specifically, fuse on top of the OVP, is my guess. It's found near the firewall, under the bonnet, on top of a little box between the size of a lighter and a cigarette packet, usually under a plastic lid.

I reckon this because:

A) It very often blows when people jump start cars

B) Without it, it runs very poorly, just like how you describe (although, it mainly effects cold running)

See how you go..
