Good afternoon, we have windows 2000 server. When I start iexplorer.exe no interactive window appeares, I only see a new process in task manager. When I log off I see window End Program - iexplore.exe (this program is not responding ...). (also dont start:explorer.exe,control panel ...). (after reboot, I can run explorer, but when I first time try to run iexplorer I cant again) There is no entry in event log. What should I do? Thanky You in advance.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Try this: When you launch IE, and no window appears on the desktop, press Alt-Space. If the window menu appears, select Move, then press the arrow keys to see if you can move the IE window back into the viewable desktop area.

I have to do this frequently; I have a laptop, and when I’m at work, I have both the LCD and a CRT, with the desktop expanded across both screens. When I go home, some windows will try to display onto the non-conencted CRT secondary screen. I use the above method to drag the window back into view.

You likely don’t have multiple displays on your Win2k server, but the principle is the same; a window may try to draw itself outside the viewable area.

Good luck.
