Thankyou for that solution. Chrome worked fine on Windows7 build 7000 but on 7100 it did not. You solved a very annoying problem for me. Now if you can just get my Hp printer going for me...

i just utilized this fix, and it ultimately worked, but i had to unpin all my shortcuts and repin them where i wanted them, if you have problems, you may try that (as they become separate shortcuts once they're pinned or added to the desktop).

and i'm using build 7100, btw.
