I have installed Windows 2000 Professional on Virtual PC (because vmware version 4.5 won't work for me, and it's slow)...

and I looked at the system info, and it's strange... my processor identification is odd... o.o

(my virtual machine is set wide screen revolution)

Eh? Just because System Info in it points out something doesn't mean it's buggy, does it? ~_~;

Don't worry, it should be fine. I have Windows XP, and I hear mine is worse .

Also, I found a another glitch. When you use Windowblends, scrollbars appear and it's anoying... I had to switch to normal xp styles to function correctly.

Microsoft is soooooooo ignorant. X_X

Hold on, I thought WindowBlends latest version was for Windows XP?

Also, I thought you were running Windows 2000 on your VPC?

Maybe your computer is just running slow. I suggest shutting it down, and then turning it back on. Also, did you load a lot of new things onto your computer recently? If so, you may need to run a defrag.

I am using Windows XP Professional SP2 and Windows 2000 on the VPC.

I had to turn off the FX effects because it's slowing it down... also Windowblends was for Windows XP and 2000. o.o..

The computer is not running slow, nor the virtual pc... but Windowblends is making the scrollbar glitch on virtual pc, so I can't use Windowblends skins anymore. =/

Well, it's always best to run Windows native instead of on VPC... if you have glitches with VPC, you'll have to contact them and ask them to patch it...

I already have windows on my system... but it doesn't have the problem if I don't use Windowsblends..

>_>.... and also it seems to run faster than vmware... I noticed that. o.o...

I only use virtual pc for old applications... o.o

no, if you use windowblends on the host machine, scrollbars will show... >_>..

Then you need to zoom out the window or use fullscreen.
