    For all I know, this may be a Windows question. My virtual machine seems to run well, but I can only get access to XP in Safe Mode. Even when I try to use "The most recent settings that worked", the blue progress bar just freezes after a few seconds. Any guesses as to what could be wrong or how it could be fixed. I guess I could just use Safe Mode all the time, but it would be nice to know why the other mode doesn't want to work properly. Thanks!

    From my experiences, the most likely point of success will be to re-install Windwoes.

    Ugh. I thought about that. But since I can run it is safe mode, shouldn't there be something that can be undone to make the normal mode run like the safe mode? Thanks for the reply though. I just don't want to reinstall it just yet. But, I may have to.

    It's times like these that somebody may be able to alleviate a woe for all, but Microsoft don't like that sort of help.

    The sort of help your credit card can provide, that's fine by Micro$oft, but when it comes to the goodness of your heart, that's unacceptable.

    Has it ever run in normal mode in the virtual machine? And what version of XP are you running?
