Additional notes on reboot the desktop Icons are intermittent on displaying or not.
It also appears the there maybe a virtual screen off to the right - but there has never been a
second physical screen and as previously stated, none of the display panel items open.
I was hoping that there is a "Dial-a-fix" equivalent for Win7 to reset policies to mfr default.
Additionally ESET on-line scanner and malwarebytes have given the computer a clean bill of health
I have a second (laptop this time) with almost the same issues, but additionally only the Ethernet (wired)
port work with static addressing. WiFi adapter (taskbar) is gone.
