I'm sure you have heard about explorer.exe not loading when users login. Well I'm getting that problem and I was wondering if anybody has any kind of solution to this!? Anything? Any ideas?
Basically, a user logs in with his or hers network login and password and the Desktop Icons do not appear. A work around for this is basically;
Opening up Task Manager > Go to File > New Task > type 'explorer' and then the Desktop loads like it normally should.
The weird thing is that this doesn't happen every time a user logs in, its very inconsistent. It could happen one time and then not happen for such a long time again, that you would forget about the explorer.exe and think the problem just went away.
Whats on our Images
WinXP Pro SP2 - Patched up to Nov.2007 (only patches not loaded on our images are .NET Framework 2 and 3 and software IE 7, and Windows Media Player 11)
IE 6 SP1, Corporate Symantec Anti-Virus (Latest Definitions)
I did a clean installed, Windows Updates and then installed the necessary company applications, tweaks here and there, very few registry tweaks. and thats it. We create a Base Image and add on any applications that any specific user might need.
Any Ideas? Could this be something with a Windows Update I installed, corrupted explorer.exe or image.
Much help is needed , Thanks!
