Here's where I am at:
This Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server Wont Show Desktop or Allow explorer.exe to be Launched.
Operating System:Windows 2003
Web Browser:Internet Explorer 8 (Upgraded during this round of trouble shooting after being told that IE and Explorer were tied to each other)
Hard Drive:3x 36GB SCSI
These are the corrective actions taken so far...
1. Edited the registry to by adding HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RpcSs /v ObjectName /t REG_SZ /d LocalSystem
2. Renamed Shdocvw.dll to .dll shdocvw.old
3. bxomebc.exe process isn't running
4. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\ doesn't contain explorer.exe or iexplorer

Checked HKLM and HCCU \Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\Winlogon\ Shell=explorer.exe for both
Checked HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution.options niether explorer.exe. or iexplore.exe are listed
If I launch explorer from the run command the process shows up in Taskman for less than a couple of sec and then disappears.

Looking to install NTFSdos to get files deleted off the boot drive. From DOS they won't die.
Tryed running SFC /scannow. fixed some Windows files, but I keep getting the SP2 CD is wrong. I have copied the filed to the HD and changed the
I have logged in using LogMeIn and RDP, even as different users. Same result as console.
Anyone up for a HighJackThis log file??????
