Are you talking about a dual boot setup? If sou you need to use bcdedit or easybcd to remove the XP entry, then you can delete xp from your drive.

You may use AppLocker to prevent VmWindow.exe to start. You need to define a deny rule (with VmWindow.exe as the target file) as a new policy for appLocker.

Hi Gerry,

By default, Windows 7 does not innately include Windows XP. It may be possible that you have either a dual boot environment with Microsoft Windows XP Home / Microsoft Windows XP Professional or a virtual solution most commonly referred to as Windows XP Mode with Virtual PC.

Select versions of Windows 7 (Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate) do allow the installation of XP Mode and Virtual PC if one wishes to run an incompatible application (for example) within a virtualized environment of Windows XP Professional. XP Mode, as well as Virtual PC, does need to be downloaded, installed and configured to run properly.

To learn more about XP Mode, Virtual PC, Windows 7 and how this was intended to assist users with legacy software and devices, please see the following resources:

If you previously installed Windows XP Mode with Virtual PC but simply wish to uninstall the application now, there is a very helpful library article available here. This article will walk you through the steps necessary to remove Windows XPMode as well as the steps for deleting a virtual machine.
