You Must Restart Your Computer

We are using a Citrix VDI environment.  I just updated the gold image to IE10.  On logging into the VDI session, users receive the massage...
"You Must Restart Your Computer to Apply These Changes"
Of course, doing so is ineffective in a VDI environment, it just does the same when next the log in.
I've signed into the gold image as my admin and user selves.  I do not get the message.
Win7-32 bit,  XDT5.6VDA.
I don't see any obvious messages in the system logs.
Thanks for the help.

Turned out to be some portions of the config files for the gold image, probably something in the .vmx.  We created a shell Win7 VM (no vmdk/HD), then copied the vmdk file from the gold image into the new shell VM to create the 'new gold image'.  Once we did that, we could create new machine catalogs in MCS from the new gold image fine.  Interestingly, simply updating the old catalog already in MCS from the new gold image did not work and creating a new machine catalog from the old gold image did not work, we had to go all new from the new gold image.

can you check device manager, there is not any driver issues ?

or installed any new drivers requiring a restart ?

windows updates?

Looking over the event log, I get Event ID's 1003 and 1040.  This leads to http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX132721.  However, I'm not sure what is meant in step 2 of the resolution.

Windows updates were applied, but I'd expect that to show when I boot the master image/vm.  I get nothing.

Thoughts?

On the gold image, no issues in Dev. mgmt.  However in the linked cloan I get, "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware because a previous instance of the device driver is still in memory. (Code 38)

You need to restart your computer before the changes you made to this device will take effect."

Oops, that's for the "standard enhanced PIC to USB host controller."

Hypervisor is ESXi 5.0, using Citrix machine creation services to create linked clones via xen destkop.

Typically when I see this, it is because of the cache drive in the template.  There are some work-arounds available, but what I typically do is add the cache drive to the machine where I manage the gold image.  Make sure it is formatted, and make sure no other drives are attached.  Reboot the machine multiple times with the disk in Private Mode.  Finally, shut the gold image VM down, clone it, and convert it to a template, and use that template to spin off your other machines using the XenDesktop Setup Wizard in PVS.

When you boot up the shell VM, is the secondary drive formatted?

EDIT:  Nevermind, I see from your last post you are using MCS.  That would have been helpful to know in the first post.

My solution was the only one that worked.  One expert simply asked a question, the other solution was for PVS, we are using MCS.
