    its great it just doesn't like XP! svr 2003/2008 and the linux distros works fine.

    That doesn't work either as windows keeps the profiles locked after logoff.

    I have the terminal server setup now so they are no longer!

    well in case you do need to carry on with it, there is an msi available from M$ that stops the profiles being locked. can't remember the name though,

    XEN did the same with XP, it may be more do with XP's acpi stack, but having said that vmware manage it ok.

    Yeah its becuase is uses the same bios (seabios). Just had to deploy the UPHCleaner as I think we have an app deployed which is writing to the Registry while windows is trying to logoff causeing corrupt profiles as have run out of reasons to why it is happening.

    its the same tool as i have already deployed to the machines to try and stop the corrupting profiles!

    I think i have the terminal server setup now - just got to wait for the license keys from MS as still running the 120 days trial period!
