cannot use internet explorer in some user profiles
Posted on 2004-09-02
Having a problem running explorer in some user accounts. The main user account can use explorer and get online. All other user accounts including the default user account (I obviously tried making a new account to see if that would work) are not able to get online through explorer. They all can obtain IP, DNS, and see the router, it just seems to be a problem with explorer. I tried copying ntuser.dat from the working user profile to the others but xp won't let me get into that folder for some reason (no, I was not logged into that user account when I tried to open it). I thought it was spyware related but I ran spybot and adaware, no help. I know there has to be a problem in the registry but I don't know enough to go in there and fool around. Please help. Thanks. Anything I need to be more specific about please ask.
