Thanks for your response. I had already, removed & re-installed XP & virtual machine and set it to: Shut Down vs hibernate.
W.E. & My comp would not let me see "app data". I use PD 7 for all my file/folder mgmt, I'm waiting for the reset of my S/N. That program lets me see-do-find everything during file/folder mgmt.

I just re-installed Windows 7 XP virtual, re-installation was fast & simple.
No one in my area or colleagues or MS seems to know much about Windows 7 XP virtual. I don't use it a lot, but it comes in handy when you have several GB of business & research files going back 30yr.
Do you guys know were, on the web, I can get more Windows 7 XP virtual info esp operating settings?
See attached image for some settings I'm interested in knowing more about, esp from an operational position.
