Windows 7: Can't open XP mode in Windows 7

Can't open XP mode in Windows 7

I installed Windows XP mode a few days back but had to forcefully shut it down because it froze. Since then, when I double click on the icon, the Windows loads about halfway, and then just shuts down on its own. I suspect it might have to do something with the integration features but am not sure.

I even reinstalled it again but the same thing happened. What should I do?

Go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search) and look in windows log>application tab. You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left hand column). You want to look for errors that relate to the problem. When you find them note the Event ID and source code and relay them to us.

There are no critical errors for this problem.

Just to clarify, I don't get any error when I launch the Windows XP Mode. It load until the bar is halfway, and then it just closes on its own.
