@kegobeer I did not install any Dell drivers
. All drivers came by default during the install except the video driver
which came during the first windows update. I believe this to be same as RC. I believe in Beta that I downloaded beta video drives from nvidia. In Beta and RC I did install Dell Vista 64 bit drivers for the touch pad so I can use the scroll function and accidental tap detection piece. I have not done that yet for the RTM code. I checked Dell's site but as expected they did not have any Windows 7 drivers posted for my laptop.
@logicearth I have a smart reader built into the laptop, but do not use it. Hence the reason I can get away with disabling the Smart Card service. I guess I should also note that this laptop has the fingerprint scanner, but I don't use that either.
@zipzag3134 Thanks for the welcome. I found this site when researching this problem and really like it. I will check out google and blackviper.com for the other (not the not the disabling Smart Card service) fix you mentioned.
