Windows 7: Key problems in Virtual XP

Key problems in Virtual XP

Hi,

For one client I am using an older version of QuickBooks that cannot run on Windows 7, so, I am using the Virtual XP function. Today, for the first time, I found that when I type "." from the number pad only or "Delete" I get into a screen called "Windows Security". I get out it it by typing "Escape". I am in the Virtual XP mode now and found that it is not just a QuickBooks problem. Any ideas as how to eliminate the problem aside from updating to a newer QuickBooks? I can work around the problem if I have to.

Thanks,
K2K

It is a month later now. The problem is gone. Maybe it was a wireless keyboard issue.
