    Browser Blown Away (IE 5.5/Win2k)

    This one's really weird.

    Our Help Desk has been working on setting up a new Dell PC for one of my users for the past several days.

    We are trying to access an Oracle web application using a static.html file. (Static means the user accesses only one .html file and the whole app runs from there)

    We've set up 3 users on the PC with Admin priviledges (we've also checked their login scripts and network security). Two users are easily able to get into the application. When the third user hits IE's "GO" button, Explorer immediately disappears (no longer running on the Task Bar either).

    We've tried everything (except the right thing) to get this one user working.

    We also tried, as nearly as possible, to do the same thing on a Win98 machine and all three of us easily access the application.

    I'm cross posting this to Win2k in case the solution resides there.

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    Greg

    No we hadn't as it was a new box direct from Dell. We'll give it a try.

    Thanks!

    Sounds very challenging. Have you tried to repair or even reinstall IE on the culprit box?

    Hello Greg,

    If that 3rd user logs on from one of the other machines, does it still happen?
    Or if the other two users log on the machine of user 3, what is happening then?
    So... is it a machine problem, or a user problem?
