Dear Friends I have a problem in my network. We are using window 2003 server on intel based machine in our network and all the client computers are window-xp based. My problem is there are 3 user on server, one is of Administrator level and other 2 are simple users. Admin user is working properly, but when i logged in the account of other two users, the window browser restart again and again within 10-15 seconds. I mean when i logged in and try to open any folder, it opens for some seconds then suddenly disappear and moniter goes blank except desktop wallpaper. this thing happens again & again. When nothing is open, just logged in then all the icons of desktop and task bar disappear again & again with some time interval and again come back. But if i use internet explorer and open my document or other folder in it, then it is ok. This is the problem with window explorer only and that too in only 2 user's account. Both the user are member of Debugger user group. I tried to delete a user account and make new user, but this doesnot work. pls help me to solve this problem

    Google these free cleanup programs to try: - HijackThis - Autoruns (recently acquired by MS) - CCleaner - SpybotSD - AdAware HiJackThis and Autoruns require no install. CCleaner may be installed and then copied to another machine. SpyBot & AdAware are spyware cleaners, but sometimes find different things, and both must be installed. But curious, when you create a new local XP user and login, is it the same symptom? What about for a new domain user? If these work, can you just create whichever is appropriate and copy that profile to the corrupt ones?

    1st - Why are 'Users' opening a 'desktop' directly on the Server? 2nd - Where were these 'User' Accounts created and opened from the first time? DO they use Profile paths, etc? If you opened these accounts from an XP PC the fist time and they are using a Profile path then all profile specific customizations have been saved to the path fro the XP box and not the 2003 boxes. This includes the NTUser.dat file with its hardware profile etc and that appears to be conflicting withe the HAL/OS combo on the 2003 boxes. Try this - 1. Login in as the Admin. Or create remotely. Create a "new' User w/o the Profile Path and login directly to the Server box and see what happens. 2. Login in as the Admin. Ensure you have the Windows Explorer set to show Hidden files. Browse to the Profile Path directory assigned to one of the 'problem' User accounts and rename the NTUser.dat file to NTUSER.dat.old. now. Login as that User and see what happens.

    You have at least two distinct possibilities. First, if the users worked properly once upon a time, then it is possible that the user data contained in the profile or AD is messed up, if you are using AD, and it could be restricting the user?s ability to access files under Explorer, which can cause a failure of Explorer which in turn will hang the system or cause application restarts. Also, the periodic nature suggests that it might be the refresh of Group Policy, again restricting user power. If they worked once and now don?t, what changed? Yes it is possible that spyware/malware is to blame and cleaning is reasonable. However, I would start by deleting the users and re creating them. Second, if they never worked then add them in to the appropriate group where they will have more then enough power to use the system and try that.
