Were it me I would just go to XP home. Unless you need the few extra things
which XP Pro might give you I think it is a horrid waste of money.

Also, what happens when you re-start your computer?

Occasionally Jaws tells me that it is not authorized but a re-start seems to
clear all that nonsense up.

Subject: Upgrading Jaws and windows xp


Hi I'm trying to activate Jaws 11 on my home PC, and although it came up
activation successful, when I tried to exit I got a message saying something
like "Jaws is not authorised to run on windows opperating systems, windows
XP or Proffessional, please contact Freedomscientific support for advice".
I did and was told I could iether downgrade my system to windows XP Home
adition, or else upgrade my JAWs to 12, which would work fine with Windows
Profferssional.  The problem is it'd cost me about £300.38.  Does anyone
else use JAWS with Windows XP Proffessional, and if so is it worth the
upgrade?  I don't know whether to just go for the upgrade and pay the extra
money or whether to get a more basic version of XP.  I'd be grateful for any
advice on this before I make a choice.  Many thanks from Lori duncan.
