Thanks Walker.
Just moving the slider a bit got rid of the red cross. An apparent bug in W7. Can live with this one tho.

Sure thing blockie, glad that workaround helped. I'm sure it'll get cleared up in the first Service Pack

Cheers,

all versions
 
 

SP1 has been out for a while with no improvement. Unfortunately, this is the sort of bug that goes WAY DOWN on the priority list until lots of people bitch about it. One thing that I've noticed is that I have only experienced it with 32 bit W7. I use a variety of version levels (home, pro, ultimate) and level does not seem to be an impact.

Was it necessary to bump this 3 year old thread?
