I really have been looking forward to win 7's xp mode, i have many problems with my computer right now but thats not important. What is though is the fact that windows xp mode from microsoft will not download on any computer i have. i have tried it on oall of my computers and the download starts downloads a little and them says its finished with all 400+mb and actually only downloads 20-30mb i dont understand it. does anybody have a copy they can upload somewhere else or explain the problem, i have the virtual pc download but this is just weird, thanks for the help
