Difficulty Easy/Moderate

Description: ReactOS will support installation alongside an existing Windows Installation. Programs can be run directly from the Windows partition (using Windows libraries) by utilization of a redirect driver. One example of this driver is from Geek Squad's MRI repair software suite. This driver is used to launch anti-virus programs and direct their registry scanning to the appropriate registry paths (after mounting the Windows hives in ReactOS), and redirect file requests to the Windows partition.
