IE7 will not open from terminal services session for domain users in the terminal services group

not sure which group to address this to.
Domain users in the terminal services group log onto terminal server and cannot open IE7. It flashes to the screen and disappears.  This started happening when I made the mistake of allowing update to IE7.  However, if I am in the Domain Admins group, I do not experience this problem?  I tried permissions on the IE folders, but to no avail.  Tried reinstalling IE7, no luck. Installed Mozilla, works fine.  Would like to solve the issue though.

    I had the same issue with IE7 as well. What i did was, i reinstalled IE6 (Obviously after uninstalling IE7) and it works like a charm. If mozilla is working then it's definetely an IE7 issue. I am sure you will be fine after reverting it back to IE6. Lemmme know about the outcome.

    It worked, however, that is not a real solution to the problem, only a bandaid.  I am sure there are others out there that might have had this happen and possibly found a solution.
