Server Management Console right pane is blank

The right pane on the Server Management Console of our SBS 2003 has gone blank.

The left pane still shows all of the nodes, but when I click on eg "Users", the list of users does not appear in the right pane - still remains blank.

BUT, when I click on some of the Advanced Management nodes, then I do get objects(?) appearing in the right pane.

This all seems to have happened after Internet Explorer was updated to version 7 on the server.  The server is yet to be restarted after the update - as we are waiting for a quiet period over the weekend.

Can someone let me know whether the cause of the blank pane is down to updating to IE7 and then not having restarted the server, and whether a restart/reboot of the server will fix this?

Can there be any other cause that I should investigate?

I am a novice on SBS 2003 - so appreciate any guidance from experts.

Thanks!

I wouldn't reinstall anything until after you do a reboot.  The install is not complete until after the reboot,

ah, I didn't read this one " The server is yet to be restarted after the update - as we are waiting for a quiet period over the weekend.
" :-)
rebooting is always the first step in error solving :-)

Thank you both - just got back from the server reboot and Server Management Console right pane is now ok again.  Hope it was ok to split the points between you both.  Thanks!
