    Default I think I broke the internet

    Hey guys... I am running Windows Vista, and I have a Virtual Machine of Windows XP, and from WITHIN the Virtualization of Windows XP I made a connection "over the internet" for a remote control session of my host PC Via GoToMyPC.

    Essentially accessing my Vista machine over the internet from my virtualization of XP. And this happened:



    I did not think that would happen, I just thought it would open up my host PC, but I guess it was like dividing by zero.

    Haha, I don't know how you did it, or how to fix it but that is an awesome pic. Worthy of saving.

    It looks like once the GoToMyPC control opened it initiated ANOTHER GoToMyPC connection from within that Vista's XP virtualization, and within that, That Vista's XP sent another connection to Vista, somehow creating a vicious loop

    No, there's only 1 instance of GoToMyPc running. It's just showing you what it is 'seeing' on your desktop (itself). Bingo, infinite loop.

    Well.... that makes perfect sense after you mentioned it, and PON, I did not actually think I "broke" the internet... it was just a cool looking picture.
