You need to use the program compatability feature. Found in start / all programs / accessories / program compability wizard. If the program is already installed then right click on the exe file for it or the shortcut / select the compatability tab, the first box run this program in compabiltiy mode for .... . Tick that box then choose the windows version you wish xp to behave like.
