Windows 7: Common Dialog boxes display hyperlinks vs. static text

Common Dialog boxes display hyperlinks vs. static text

I have an application that calls Windows API functions to display the Common Dialog boxes (e.g. Print Dialog, File Save As..., etc.). The Common Dialog boxes display correctly on my own network, but I have a client who is running my application on a Windows Server 2008 R2 application server (same code-base as Windows 7) running terminal server accessed via Citrix. ALL entries in the Common Dialog boxes are displayed as hyperlinks (as opposed to standard "static" text) and as soon as a user "clicks" on a different printer (for example) in the printer selection section of the Print Dialog box, the dialog box closes and the user is never given the option of clicking on either the PRINT or CANCEL buttons that are standard on this common dialog box. Personally, I've never seen this type of behaviour before this and I really need to be able to disable this apparent "extension" or "alteration" to the Common Dialog boxes so that they work the way my client users expect them to. Has anyone ever seen this type of behaviour occur in the Windows Common Dialog boxes and, if so, do you have any insight as to what might be causing this?
