Default Something really weird is happening!

Ok i'm kinda freaked out. the other day all of a sudden i could have different screen resolutions between XP acounts. i thought it was because of a new video driver but i did a roll back and it still let me. also i can play MS-DOS games on XP. i don't have any other OS installed and there isn't any DOS on XP,lol.

I couldn't do these things before and now i can and i didn't do anything.

xp has a built in compatability program. It will allow some older dos games to run perfectly and then it won't.Just depends on the game.
As to the different screen resolutions in different accounts. It is programed through user profiles and all settings are saved seperately on all accounts. Enjoy xp to the fullest.

Ya but these DOS games wouldn't work before.

it would keep whatever screen resolution i had on all acounts. if i switched it on one, it switched it on all.
