    Wow. That's definately a new one if I've ever seen it. Has it always been like this, or has something changed in the last few days? If something has changed, try using System Restore to restore your system to an earlier time. We will need more information about this one.

    What version of Windows 7 are you running? Was it an upgrade or clean install? When did the problem start?

    Welcome to the forums, by the way!

    type winver in the start.Copy the ver number here, or press ALT and PrtSc together and copy the picture to Paint,save it somewhere and then attach the whole picture here.

    If the build number is less than 7600 => means your 7 is RC.
