Windows 7: XP Mode starting Endless loop

XP Mode starting Endless loop

There's supposed to be nothing wrong with it, I don't find anything wrong with it...
I hibernated the xp mode as usual and turned my host off last night. today I turned it on and got to the screen where it enables integration. But the mouse acting wild, changing cursors rapidly like an animal, then I saw another window that enables integration again. My host then said that it's performing slowly so it offers to disable aero. I clicked it but xp mode is still black and still enabling features, while the mouse is acting even more wild; it's not starting up at all. So i had to resort to forcibly turn it off. Then I restarted it and it starts up normally except that when the bar goes to the middle, the start up goes all the way back in the beginning of the start up and repeats itself, it doesn't reach enabling integration anymore. The same happens everytime I start it up

I would just completely uninstall XP Mode and re-install it.

XP Mode installation Endless loop
I am installing the W7 XP mode. Before I can download anything I must download the WindowsActivationUpdatel.exe and install it. I do that and when I try to download XP Mode again I am told the same thing. I do it over and over and never get out of the loop. What do I need to do?
