I've searched the forums and have tried the solutions posted there to no avail. Here's my situation.

Windows Server 2008 (32 bit). The Administration account runs EVERYTHING fine. We have to keep this on 32 bit due to a program limitation that has to run. Anyway, when creating another user on the server (for Remote Access purposes), logging in brings some interesting issues.

1. MMC gives the "Failed to create empty document" error. I've tried the environment variable for the Temp and TMP folders. Didn't fix the issue. Tried stopping the indexing service. Didn't fix the issue.

2. The menu buttons on the non-admin user accounts are missing their text (see the attached screenshot).

3. Finally, the windows, minimize, maximize and close buttons do not work. The buttons are clickable, but they simply won't work. Trying to click and drag the window around, does nothing.

Luckily this hasn't been brought into full production yet, but do you think I should just do a full reinstall and start fresh or am I missing something? I will say that trying to run the software (it's a towing company software) from the non-administration accounts gives an "Out of Memory" error, if that means anything...Screenshot of just about all issues on one screen
