Alright, So I have Windows Home edition. Its working great, I got my games on there movies songs what have you.

Now all the sudden my mother goes on the family computer and installs XP Pro thinking that it will just upgrade my xp home and make it much more efficient. The next time i get on my comp, my games suddenly dont work at all. and everything is just kinda "off" on my computer, i try downloadin system updates for xp pro to see the problem or anything but nothin seems to work.

so im curious is there anyway i can take off XP pro without having to delete/erase anything on my computer?

and also, whats the real differences between Professional and home edition anyway?

aswell whats the difference between regular pro and pro x64edition?

Any help would be deeply appreciated.

If pro was installed through existing home edition, I think it should be listed in Add/Remove Programs (make sure you tick 'show updates' at top), so you can uninstall it from there. failing that, try system restore.

XP Pro/Home differences here: http://www.microsoft...on/compare.mspx

The x64 edition is required only if you have a PC with a 64-bit processor (as opposed to the more common 32-bit ones) and want to benefit from all the enhancements and speed improvements such a system can provide.
