I am having the same problem, and it's infuriating!!! I specifically chose this netbook with the new Windows 7 instead of the tried and true Windows XP because I was SURE that it would totally kick butt, having been so enamored with XP's features!
I swear, I feel like returning it and getting the XP version!
WINDOWS TEAM, PLEASE WRITE A DEBUG OR REGISTRY FIX FOR THIS GLARING OVERSIGHT!!!!
If anyone has a solution, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
