You just run the program, choose what apps that are currently installed on your PC you would like included on the disc, and burn it.

Hopefully someone finds it usefull.

    Is it easy to use? I've seen a couple which look like a royal pain in the ass to get a working disk.

    Very!

    Give it a try. You do need your original XP install disc. The app actually pulls the necasarry files of the install disc to make the live disc.

    I don't have my original XP disc. I need to boot my old laptop. It had a virus that turned off the task manager. Can't go beyond inactive desktop. Any suggestions??

    Thanks! Kel:doh:

    If you can get a XP CD from a friend you can use it to make the PE disc and retrieve your important files.

    You need to try and find a plugin for it. Do a search in google for 'MSN messenger bartPE plugin' and see what you turn up. To be honest it's not really intended for use a 'live windows cd' for everyday use, it's more for diagnostics and maintenence on unbootable machines.
