    I have a rather peculiar problem on my hands. I recently purchased 4 new laptops for my company with windows 7 pro preinstalled. (I have 9 of the same laptops already running, same configuration) Once I set everything up on these computers, my last step is to make a user folder available offline to the user. On all 4 of these computers, I cannot get offline files to “activate”.

    In the “Offline Files” console, under the first button (which reads “disable offline files”) it reads “Offline Files is enabled but not yet active. Restart this computer to activate offline files.”

    I have restarted numerous times to no avail. I haven’t seen this problem on any forums or in the Microsoft database. I have however seen the exact same problem in a vista forum, but the fix (which was a registry change) did nothing. I have attempted to force the offline files active through the GPedit.exe but that did nothing.

    Can anyone help?!?!

    All windows updates have been applied….
