Same problem on windows 7 machine
The windows 7 machine provided by the Navy, has the same problem with IE locking up and the mouse pointer disappearing as the machine freezes up. I have lost count of the number times in the last 8 months that I've been required to do a hard boot to bring the system. It is reported that this is due to the Navy's encrypted hard drives. But if that's so why do we not have this problem on the Windows XP machines?
