Can't start XP virtual machine

    I'm using Windows XP SP3 in the virtual machine setup that Microsoft
    supplies with Windows 7 Professional. A problem has started suddenly -- I
    have never changed a default setting!

    1. When I try to resize the XP window, the machine starts churning and
    displays, "Enabling integration features..."

    2. After a while a dialog box comes up, saying, "Integrated features have
    been disabled."

    3. I click the OK button, and get a new sign-on type box that says, "This
    computer is in use and has been locked" and demands a password. I don't
    think I ever set a password and have any idea what it is.

    4. After this, if I close or hibernate the VM, when I re-open it I get no VM
    window at all, just the "Enabling integration features..." message and the
    rest. If I reboot the physical machine, I can sometimes at least get a VM
    window the seems to work right, but obviously I can't resize it.

    Any advice will be greatly appreciated!
