Windows 7 Virtual PC does not work

#1
Hi all :)!

Hi have a problem that it is stalking me.

I have a machine with Windows 7 Professional with Virtual PC installed, the last time I used it (with XP Mode) it worked perfectly, but now when I execute Virtual PC nothing happens, but the process shows up in the task manager.

The same thing happened to me a few months ago (with 7 Ultimate), and the solution was reinstalling windows.

Already tried system restore and reinstalling Virtual PC, both did not work.

What could it be?

Thanks :)

Do some searching. I just read about using XP mode on Home Premium edition using VMware player which is free.

Check MS Virtual PC in the icon tray area.

Ok, I fixed it :).

Removed some applications on msconfig and now it works :).

For those who may have the same problem, I removed from startup Daemon tools, some HP Printer software, Java, Adobe Reader, webcam and mouse software.
