Windows 7 & Outlook 2007 Desktop Alert


  • I have finished a clean install of Windows 7 64 bit and installed Office 2007.  All works well except that Outlook 2007 does not display the Desktop Alert Notification that has a semi-transparent preview of an incoming email message.  Checked all the settings and they are correct. 

    Do we have a fix and has this been confirmed on other computers?
