What would cause the <all programs> tab from failing to open exsisting apps.

Conditions:

* all users are on active directory
* OS = server 2003
* single user can not access the <start> <all programs> applications.
* System just hangs and does nothing.
* All other systems and function seem to work normally.

Hi,

Might be a dumb question, but i don't quite get the problem. Is a user having a problem using his all programs??? Is this the server that hangs?? Try to check the Task Manager to see what service is causing the server to hang. Try to see what happens if you stop this service..

Please post some more info on the problem

Are you using folder redirection, and have a server disappear or major file share change recently?

Oh, and how deep are your GPO's? Do you have software GPO's at the bottom of the list?
