I haven't found that on any of my Win7 installations but that probably
reflects more my usage than yours. Still rebasing everything is
probably overkill, though likely easier to do.
You also have to consider is whether you have UAC enabled on your Win7
installation AND whether you're running 32-bit or 64-bit. You may not
think these things should matter but in my experience, they do.
In case it's useful for someone, I'm running UAC (the default) on 32-bit Win7.
