Vista____________XP
I am impressed by the knowledge you guys have so I am
expecting you can solve my problems........................

I have a HP Mefia Center that came with XP preloaded and I made
recovery disks. They also offered Vista free. I got the Vista and it came
with "Upgrade Assistant" I ignored the assistant expecting it was more PR
crap.


I installed the Vista and it worked ok but I saw that XP was better. The
installation did not give any option other than "clean install". After
trying to install
an old program that failed I started have problems with failed initializing
programs including IE7.

I was getting data execution prevention errors.

On startup I get;
Application failed to initialize 0x00000005

A problem caused program to stop working

I was able to get IE 7 to work using;
bcddedit.exe/set {current}hx AlwaysOn

Can anyone help?

If you can get Vista to run at all...
back up all your data...then use your recovery disks to re-install XP

My sentiments exactly.

If you still have the "windows.old" folder, the above link has instructions
on how to roll back to XP.
SAVE your Data 1st!
