depends on who you bought your xp from.

Thanks for listening, But....
I was told to remove Virus protection at instalation too!
You really need this type of product installed at all times!
I checked Norton already, and no mention of Partition Magic at this time.
Like I said, I desperately need to extend my C volume ASAP!!
I have a screenshot of the "fAIL" window, that's ALL the information I can
provide of that. May I E Mail it to you??
I am concerned also that I ended up with an OEM version of Windows Vista
Home Premium, This eliminates me from product support at this time!
