Hi,

As if you are aware, Windows XP is *NOT* a server operating system, so, any time, only *one* user will be allowed to log in *interactively*.
You need to use VNC software if you want to use your system by multiple users at the same time.

But, session will remain interactive for only one user at a time.
By *interactive* i mean, only one user at a time can be logged in, if multiple users are logging in using VNC or any other Utility software, they will be sharing the same session/desktop.

Thanks and regards.

How to Connect a Windows 7 Computer to a Windows XP


Even though Windows XP and 7 are different versions of Windows, you can still connect a computer running Windows 7 to an XP computer using Remote Desktop Connection. Remote Desktop Connection is a utility in Windows that allows you to log in to a remote computer directly from your computer's desktop. However, before you can use the utility on your Windows 7 computer, you must enable it on the Windows XP computer. To connect to the Windows XP computer, you also need to know the XP computer's name.

Instructions

Enable Remote Desktop on the Windows XP Computer
  1. Click "Start" on the Windows XP computer, and then right-click "My Computer."
  2. Click "Properties" from the pop-up menu.
  3. Click the "Remote" tab, and then click the "Allow Users to Connect Remotely to This Computer" check box.
  4. Click "OK" to confirm the change when prompted on the pop-up window. Click "OK" on the open windows to close them.

Connect to the Windows XP Computer
  1. Click "Start" on the Windows 7 computer, and then type "Remote Desktop Connection" in the search box. Press "Enter."
  2. Click "Remote Desktop Connection" from the results list.
  3. Type the name of the XP computer in the "Computer" box, and then click "Connect" to connect to the XP computer.

SpideRaY's Essential Windows XP Professional Tweaks


Problems with slow browsers OR hung applications OR just want to speed up your Windows shutdown time.

Here I have compiled a whole host of speed and optimization Tweaks from personal experience and from surfing the web here is a selection available from my Public SkyDrive folder

http://cid-b9ec6690da6fa3eb.skydrive.live.com/browse.aspx/.Public/TWEAKS

Feel free to use as many or as few as you like but don't forget even though I am sure that you will see a huge improvement it is always a good idea to one OR all of the following;
  • Backup your entire registry prior to any tweaking
  • Create a restore point using the system tools
  • create a drive image using one of the most popular applications like Symantec Ghost or DriveImage

Please let me know how it went on your faster PC at either my blogspot or on my FixYa comments.

Xp operating system


Hi there.
Personally i have never heard of this particular edition of XP so i am guessing you have downloaded this version that has been tweaked with SP3 integrated and other programs too.
As for its performance you are just going to have to install it and see, there are plenty of people out there who like to customize XP and add skins like Vista and Mac OSX and can be quite fun to play with.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

I turn on my puter it goes to the user login and then logs off


Hi,

I've run into this problem too often lately. So far I haven't managed to find a decent fix for it :( I've ended up having to backup the computer's data, reinstall windows, and restore all the data.

From the times I've seen it you get to the login screen, click on your user, get the "Loading personal Settings", a quick flash of the desktop, then back to the login screen saying "saving personal settings". It would do this in both safe mode and normal mode, so I was never able to try turning off startup software or services.

Booting to the windows XP disc and running a check disc might help, but from my experience with the problem you will probably need to reinstall windows. Hopefully someone else has a better idea.

Best of luck :)

Win xp sharing connecion


For Windows XP Professional, the maximum number of other computers that are permitted to simultaneously connect over the network is ten. This limit includes all transports and resource sharing protocols combined. For Windows XP Home Edition, the maximum number of other computers that are permitted to simultaneously connect over the network is five. This limit is the number of simultaneous sessions from other computers the system is permitted to host. This limit does not apply to the use of administrative tools that attach from a remote computer.

Problem with Remote Desktop


On an XP client you can only have one person logged at a time.  This is different on M$ Sever 2000 and up where you can have multiple log ons.  There no way to do this this with M$ RD - However you can achive what you are after by using  third party RD software such as Real VNC There is a free client (which i use to access mac's & win machines) or if you prefer ssh etc it is quite cheap for the full version.
