CF Admin page looks strange on 2003 Standard

I just installed 2003 Standard and then CFMX 6.1.  The admin page looks strange; there are no graphic elements, and the fonts look strange.  Could this have something to do with the tighter IE settings on server 2003?  Anyone know how to make it look 'normal' again?

Check the IE settings for the machine ... if its just from one PC [as IE can internally change the look of the displayed page wrt the images & fonts]

Also depends on how was the installation of W2K3 carried ... if there were any errors ???

chk the proeprties-advanced tab ...

If u can see things properly from some other machine - then u dont need to chk the above ..
but if its not working in just ur browser - thn its definately some setting issue of IE

I discovered that on my local machine, I was using an old shortcut.  Once I changed the shortcut to reflect the proper IP address, the page displayed normally.

However, the shortcut on the server itself, which points to 127.0.0.1, still does not display properly.

no one gave a really useful answer, I worked around it myself.  Please refund.

see my above post; I never got 127.0.0.1 to work, so I used the private IP address of the server.
