With an OS that should be rebooting every two hours, isn't it time you bought a retail version?

It may due to the fact that the version you're running is in it's expiration stage, I'm not sure.

Do you have to enable virtulization in your BIOS.
On my two 7 rigs, one I did...the other I didn't.
Just a thought.

I dont know whtr its enabled or not.. but i have an Asus motherboard. I Read in windows xp mode downloading page that All Asus motherboards have Virtualization enabled by default.

Anyways can you explain how to check whtr its enabled or not in BIOS ?
