    Check this first: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=922370

    Have you installed the display drivers for your chip or installed card?

    That is sometimes a factor.

    The other is a policy setting, but this should not occur on a clean install.

    If one exists, it would be found in one of the registry keys below:

    User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
    System]

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

    System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
    System]
