To solve this problem 2 steps are necessary:
1) Make sure Windows 7 has the update KB3140245. You can verify and force it in Windows control panel or you could start this update manually by downloading it from this Microsoft site: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/search.aspx?q=kb3140245
2) 2 registry entries are needed:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
If you are familiar with regedit.exe you could add them manually, or you can download and start this small reg file which will add these keys into the registry.
After adding these keys reboot your system and the problem is solved.
