But as I said, you've paid for Windows 7 Professional so it defeats the object if you don't then give XP Mode a go.

If you decide you don't like it, just uninstall it.

However, there is an alternative and that's VMware Player: VMware Player: Run Windows 7, Chrome OS - Free Download for a Virtual PC
In fact, I installed VMware player this afternoon. I realized that I got to have a new xp oem to complete XP mode (b/c I don't have a non-activated xp cd) My question is which one would you like to recommend between VMware player and Microsoft Virtual PC (sic).
