I'm having a specific problem with XP Mode. When I change the size of XP Mode window it instantly get me logged off. After I change the size I have to login again in to XP mode
I understand that Virtual blanks the screen and reconnects as if a different monitor is attached.
Why does it log me off during the process?  Can I fix this?

    As far as I know it is normal behaviour.. I don't know of any workaround (it doesn't log you off it just puts you in standby for a second or so)

    XP Mode is very poor designed, non-rigorous and problematic.  Instead of it you may install VMware Player (Free) and have proper XP on Windows 7.

    Make sure all the xp mode software are installed. I think there are three software available from ms website.

    I have xp mode installed and never had such issue. Make sure all the three xp mode software is installed.

    vmPlayer is a better option, depending on your PC...I have a descent laptop, and I didn't care for the vmplayer, XP 7 worked a little slower than normal, as can be expected, but the XP, once loaded with office, etc...was truly too slow...Dual Boot is still the best option for a single machine,BUT  if you absolutely need both at the same time, try scrounging up an extra low resource PC...
