This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Because there's no obvious sign of it, I have to ask: Is this at all code related? If it is, you really should post what code you're using. Otherwise it's just guesses, and we don't like to guess here. That's not constructive. – J. Steen Dec 20 '12 at 7:06
No its not code related . I'm simply using it on Windows 7 ultimate. – Sachin Prasad Dec 20 '12 at 7:08
Then it's off topic for Stack Overflow, a Q&A site about programming questions. Try Super User. – J. Steen Dec 20 '12 at 7:09
