We're in the process of deploying Windows 7 to the our estate and we are starting to get an increasing number of devices getting the error 'Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service' when logging on.  A reboot (or two) clears the error and allows the user to logon but we're wondering if anyone out there has also come across this and if so, how to stop it from occurring!

Thanks.

MS offers a hot fix that may solve the problem.  
"This issue occurs when a new drive is added to the system while background services are still starting. The most common example of this is with Microsoft Application Virtualization Client" (App-V) .
