Windows 7: Sysinternals - Desktops hangs system on 2nd switch

Sysinternals - Desktops hangs system on 2nd switch

Hi all
Some bad news
I LIKE virtual desktops -- I really miss the power toy feature in XP which allowed you to have 4 virtual desktops.

The Sysinternals suite has a similar facility for VISTA and it seemed to work on 71o0-- X-64.

However after switching desktops TWICE (It works once) ALL ypor Icons disappear and the system hangs
Only re-boot possible.

Pity as I LIKED this one.

There is a better on here. You have to change the default hot keys because the interfere with windows 7 hot keys but it works great and you will have Aero on all of your desktops.
