I got the Professional verison running, complete with numerous programs in XP Mode

It worked for about a day..... then started getting all sorts of wierd things happening....

A) Part way through the windows load - it would state that I had to register my windows version - and when I hit the "update online" box - it would say that it is unavailable

B)When windows7 booted up - I have a black background (no Windows 7 background)

C) in the bottom right corner of my computer - I would get the "non geniune windows product text"

D) None of the Microsoft related pages (including my MSN homepage) wouldn't load - for security reasons

I attempted to due the "registration of windows geniune product countless times.... resorted to using the phone to register again to no avail

I restored twice... gone through all the XP Mode downloads again to come up to almost the same conditions....

Whether this is related or not - I have no idea.... but my computer clock was somehow no longer sync'd and my computer date was indicating 2007..... after I reset my clock to the proper setting, I restored for a third time... and back to normal..

(is this related to WAT)
Did you install the update or install MSE?
