Strange behaviour in windows 7. Huge icons after hibernate and will not always accept login.
Posted on 2011-02-11
The company I work for have decided to migrate from Windows XP to Windows 7 professional.
In order to evaluate Windows 7 we have decided to try out both the 32 bit and 64 bit versions at some of our smaller offices. It all seem to work perfectly but for one office. At that place there are both versions running on different computers and they all display a curious behavior.
1. When the computers boot up, their user press Ctrl + Alt + Del and enter his or her credentials. When they press the arrow-icon to proceed the computer thinks for a while and then the screen blanks out and the message "Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to login" is displayed.
After this, the user press Ctrl + Alt + Del again and enter their credentials, and click proceed to login. This time they actually log in to the network.
This is strange for two reasons, first of all it only happens to this office and only to windows 7 computers - not the ones with XP. Secondly, it happen to all windows 7 machines, both 32 and 64 bit.
Does anyone know about this?
2. The other strange occurence that only happen to windows 7-computers at this office is this:
When the computers have been unused for a while the hibernate to save power. When activated again something happen to the windows desktopsettings causing the icons on the desktop to be HUGE! I mean absurdly big. How can that happen and why only at this office. I can tell you that the users working with the new windows 7-computers are not impressed and they regret trading in their old ones with windows XP.
