Windows 7: Virtual XP problems

Virtual XP problems

Help wanted!
I have recently purchased a Pavilion, upgraded to 7 professional because I needed to talk to the office network. While I have had some minor glitches which we have overcome, the latest is leaving me wishing I had downgraded to a full XP.
I am experiencing great difficulty booting up the virtual machine and when I do I have very few files. When I attempt to open or start anything on the desktop or start menu, I get the hourglass indicating that something is happening for a few seconds, then nothing. I have tried resarting, shutting down and rebooting evrything, and the latest attempt froze the virtual in mid startup, any help out there?

I have my best luck getting the Virtual XP from the start mode as opposed to selecting the program from the start menu. Virtual XP can be quirky.
