Most Ridiculous Windows 7 Bug

I have some time to sneak in while waiting for my flight at the airport in Singapore, so I decided to post the most ridiculous bug I’ve ever come across.

The Welcome screen may be displayed for 30 seconds during the logon process after you set a solid color as the desktop background in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2

Yes. You read that right. If you use a solid color as your desktop background, it will take you 30 seconds to log in. My colleague encountered this yesterday, rebooted multiple times because he thought his computer hung on logging in and caught a virus.

Workaround? Put a pretty picture as your desktop wallpaper. Turn off the Desktop Window Manager Session Manager service. Or download the hotfix in the link above.

Do you think it is ridiculous? I do. If you’re wondering, I’m already in Hyderabad, India by the time this post is out.
