I'm having this very issue on an end user's PC. I've installed the hotfix and it did not repair the issue. I've edited the registry and it still did not fix the issue.

I'm about to pull my since I've been trying to find a solution to this for two weeks!!

Does ANYONE know of anything else that can be done to correct this?
