    I don't think the problem described above is Win 7 specific, but FYI
    there's an active Win 7 newsgroup at alt.windows7.general.

    Did you *ask* on the specific forum I linked (one of the better forums)
    or did you just *look* to see if someone else has already asked the same
    question?
    The problem may not be Win7 specific, but the resolution may be....
    Windows Explorer, as well as the kernel and many other parts of the OS,
    is a totally different creature in Win7 than it is in XP. That is why
    asking Win7 questions in an XP group isn't a good idea.
