  • Hi,

    Thank you for your post!

    After checking the issue, it seems this is a general Windows 7 related issue. As this forum focuses on Windows Vista specific issues, this inquiry would best be posted to Windows 7 forum:

    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us.  Thank you for your understanding.

     

    Meanwhile, I would like to share some troubleshooting steps below for your information. I would appreciate if you can clarify the following question:

    1. When did this issue begin to occur? If recently, system restore can be under consideration.

    2. Can you associate with any software\hardware change? If so, remove them to test.

    In addition, certain things you can try are to find out the root cause of the problem are given below.

     

    1.  Have a look whether you can reproduce the problem in safe mode.

     

    Start your computer in safe mode

    If behavior doesn’t persist in safe mode, it indicates that a third party program or service is preventing you from performing the action as supposed to.

     

    To validate or determine which service/startup item could be causing this, restart the computer and boot to desktop normally. Once done, perform clean boot.

     

    2.  Clean Boot prevents software conflicts by preventing the startup items and non Microsoft services from loading. This way you can safely follow the process of elimination to check which application is causing this behavior.

     

    Refer:

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

    Note: Ensure that you put your computer back to normal startup mode after completing the troubleshooting steps. Steps are available in the article given above.
