Windows 2003 server (not domain controller) on a domain.  Logged on locally to that server.

Unable to run any program from a network share.  The same program can be run after copying it locally, and it's not a permissions issue, the same person can log on to a different computer and run the same program over the network (double-clicking on the program in the shared folder).

I looked at Local Security settings but don't see anything that would be causing this.

Why is this one server not able to run programs from a share location over the network?

I can't believe nobody posted an answer to this.  I busted my butt on this one and finally found it:

Internet Explorer 7, Trusted Sites

Anything you want to get to, even on your own intranet, has to be a trusted site.

I'm sure there are dozens of people here who know this off the top of their head.  Strange they didn't answer.

Even though I was using Windows Explorer, IE7 blocked it.  

Thanks, Microsoft.  For nothing.

So how do I close this question as it is, since I'm the only one commenting in it?  I could delete it, but I'd like to keep it around.  It might help somebody else.  I really spent a lot of time on this and it would be a shame to just delete it.
