Can a non-admin on a windows 2003 server not part of any domain run IE successfully? IE works on my computer for administrators but as soon as i create a non-admin user account, IE opens and in 2 seconds automatically closes without any warning.

what can I do to troubleshoot this?

Hi billwharton,

yes they can its not an issue unless you have IE blocked by group policy

do the event logs give you any more help in regards to what is going on?

It's not a group policy issue... it's the Enhanced Security Mode of IE.  If you want to remove this for non-adminstrative users you need to run add/remove programs > Windows components > Internet Explorer Enhanced Security.  

Remove the IEES for non-administrators.

That should fix your problem.
