Windows 7: My Win7 computer behaves weird!

My Win7 computer behaves weird!

Hello geeks!

Basically, I have no problems or issues with my Win7 computers. It's just that sometimes they behave really odd, without logic.

I thought it would be interesting to collect these weird stories here. I'll begin:

I have Logitech wireless keyboard / mouse combos in every computer I have. All are working fine, it's just this my private use laptop (see my specs) that is a bit weird. I use Logitech diNovo Media Bluetooth keyboard / mouse combo with this laptop, when home. It's working perfectly as long as I do not reboot. Normally I reboot only a couple times a month, hibernating all the time. But when I reboot, I have to unplug all USB devices for Logitech kb & mouse to work. If I reboot when one or more USB device is connected, the kb & mouse do not work.

Sometimes I don't remember this when rebooting so after Windows 7 has started and keyboard & mouse are not working, I have to shut the computer down, disconnect USB devices and reboot once again. After reboot, I can reconnect the USB devices and everything works perfectly.

Not a big issue, just weird.

Second weird thing is the Quick Launch toolbar. It works and I like to use it, it's just that the built-in Snipping Tool does not want to stay there. I mean, when I reboot, the Snipping Tool has normally disappeared from Quick Launch, and I have to manually put it back. (read more here, post #221). It stays there until next reboot.

Do you have any weird issues with your Win7 computer? If so, post it here.

Windows 7 and Media Center is the first stable TV viewing / recording PC platform I have owned. I am very happy with it. What seems weird is the picture will disappear but the sound continues to play and I get this message that it can't find any tuners? The picture will appear for an instant when I scroll the channels, and the preview pictures works. It is like "Where is my hat?" Duh, look on your head! Always takes a reboot to restore.

If I stay connected to my wireless for more than 2 hours, I lose the connection, and the only way to get it back is to delete the connection from the wireless network settings then reboot and enter the psk code

Computer behaves very slowly when browsing within my User directory
Hi, Whenever I try to navigate through my user directory (C:\Users\MyName), sometimes it takes ages for the computer to respond. This was happening earlier when I was trying to access AppData so I could fix a GreaseMonkey script. Once the computer "unfreezes" (it doesn't really freeze, as I...

Two user accounts and IE behaves different
A month or so ago I noticed I could not listen to Cartalk (A PBS radio show) online when I always could before. Tried to troubleshoot. Reset IE8 and still no joy. It works just fine with Google Chrome so I know it is related to IE8. Just created a new account (standard vs. my admin) and of...
