Windows 7: 7057 - can't put shortcuts on second monitor

7057 - can't put shortcuts on second monitor

Upgraded from 7048 to 7057 today. I have 2 LCD monitors running off a Nvidia 7800 GTX.
After it finished, all my desktop shortcuts were on the secondary monitor (left), and I can't move them to the primary monitor (right).
I can open programs and move them to either screen, and the taskbar will work on either screen. Gadgets work fine on either screen.

I can't create a shortcut or a new file on the primary monitor on the right.
I was using UltraMon 3.0.4, and tried uninstalling it, and installing an older version, with no improvement.
If I make the left screen primary, then I can create & move shortcuts to either screen. However, using UltraMon puts the taskbar & extended taskbar on the same (left) screen.

Booting into Vista 32 or Windows 7 64 shows both screens working ok.

Hello all.


I've been playing around with this and the Icons ARE there, just not visible; this is an icon when I point to it.

Go figure. .....
