I have a problem which ive been working on for two days and this is what happening. i have a sbs2000 server with both win2000 and xp pro clients. all the xp pro clients now have corrupted windows installers. If i disconnect xp machine from network repair xp all works fine. as soon as i connect to network and logon xp window installer stuffs up again. when this happens it also wont let you click on start, then search on the xp machine. I have completely formatted one pc and reconnected it to server and as soon as i did this happens again. The only thing that has been done to server is windows updates, setup group policy with screensaver settings. which work fine with. win2000 machines are fine.
We are using roaming profiles but i have tried without using these ans still same problem.
any ideas would be great.
ps i tried all microsoft procedures for correcting windows installer but the only way i can repair it is reloading xp.
