I have seen every fix under the sun online to fix this.  I want to know if someone has a 100% solid fix for this.  This is the only machine this happens to and the other machines at the location dont have this problem.  just started noticing this today.  Ive done a system restore, and ;didnt correct it.  I saw some registry fixes that werent clean cut.  Can someone give me an answer to resolve this.
