Hi,
I get the exact same problem, although when I run the 2 commands;

Net localgroup Users Interactive /add
Net localgroup Users "Authenticated Users" /add

I get a failure with -

system error 1378 has occurred. The specified account name is already a member of the group.

I also turned off UAC and rebooted. I still get the blue screen.

I also checked the winlogon shell and it's using explorer.exe.


All I did was upgrade the DC (my main dc) with sp1. I also put the wsus on this domains around the same time. wsus failed, so I installed it manually.

This was an old 2003 domain, but I upgraded everything, so I have 2 DC's and a separate exchange server. I can login fine using mydomain\myname but with mydomain\administrator I get a blue screen.


All I can think is this is a permissions issue somewhere. When I log in with myname, I go to remote desktop connections. I can see the administrator login fine.


Has anyone got any ideas? Or ways I can find a solution?


Thanks.

I found the fix actually, I just deleted the administrator profile from the system properties / user profiles and logged off (using my profile), then logged back on again with the administrator.
Now I have a full desktop.

Sorry to bother you!
