Specs: Windows XP, Pentium4/512
I had this OS for 4 and has never failed me since, Last Dec. I bought a DELL laptop with VISTA as OS, Is there a way for XP Pro SP2 to SHUTDOWN and when reopens dont have to reload all the programs again and again, just like the VISTA does?

What do you mean by reload the programs? Do you mean to START programs? If that is the case, for best performance from your hardware you shouldn't have unneeded programs always open.

That said, you can place most any program in the start up group in WinXP and thereby have that program running at start up. Look at the WinXP help files to learn the details.

In short, no. you need to use windows vista.
technically when you use this function in windows vista you are not completly shutting down the machine you are using a "save state" function which windows XP doesnt have.

Sorry your going to have to convert to windows vista
