  • Remote Dekstop Connection - Explorer.exe error

    I just got back from my lunch i tried to log onto my server. I received this error

    Explorer.EXE
    The application failed to initialize properly (0x000001d). Click on OK to terminate the application.

    I logged on with command line and tried to run explorer.manually, but received the same error

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    I haven't had my lunch yet (- and just how is that relevant?)
    Try giving some details of your system, some history, set up, scenarios. In short read how to post to this forum - or move over to the gastronomy one!
    TIA

      No changes had been made to the system. Last week I installed some updates.

      I am working on SBS2k3, Exchange 2003, GFI MA, SQL2005, IIS, DNS, DHCP...etc
      Nonrton Antivirus and Acronis True Image

      Thanks

        Can you log on to the server itself?

        Can you RDP to the console session by:

        mstsc /v:<server name or IP> /console?

        Can you unplug any USB devices from the station you are connecting from (especially printers!)?
        TIA

          Hi,
          The same problem (Explorer.EXE The application failed to initialize properly (0x000001d). Click on OK to terminate the application. ) happened to me once too.
          I restarted my machine and it worked. If it is OK to restart. Restart and logon back.
