    [SIZE=14px]Greeting’s, I have a peculiar problem where post installation of Windows XP SP2 on a Workstation 11 VM the machine keeps crashing. As soon as I log onto the machine, it crashes. This also happens with a machine I created (same OS). I have Microsoft EMET ( on my machine. I’ve changed DEP settings to application opt in and I’ve also disabled EMET but the machine(s) keep crashing post login screen.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=14px]This is a hardened machine (running windows 8.1 fully patched, having 16 GB RAM out of which 2 GB is given the virtual machine) and has lot of services disabled. Does VMware Workstation 11 require certain Microsoft services to function? I have not changes any settings such as enabled EXP on processor on the machine(s) i’ve created.[/SIZE]
