I accidentaly MERGED Windows XP and Windows 7
Until yesterday i had Windows 7 Ultimate installed. Then i decided to switch to Windows XP. And it seems that when i have installed XP, the Windows, Program Files etc. folders have merged. Both Windows 7 AND Windows XP work fine. Should i expect any difficulties using XP. I do NOT want to use the Windows 7 which was already installed and there is no sense in the Windows directory being 19 Gigabytes. How can I... split them or something? Oh, and I am having problems installing .NET Framework on XP. I can play some DirectX 9 games and other things tho. I forgot to say that in Windows XP the My Computer icon uses the My Documents in Windows 7 one. The main thing i want to resolve is the .NET problem.
Sencierly, Peter Petkov

Were you prompted XP installer was going to overwrite the Windows folder? I believe this happens when the installer isn't booted and there are no other drives seen..
Best to clean reinstall from booted XP installer, deleting existing, repartioning with a full format.
Otherwise post back a screenshot of your full C drive folder contents. Screenshot with Paint
