[Dshield] Windows update

My first guess is that there is a GP set somewhere that's either preventing
the install from completing or that prevented the install from installing
correctly. This is assuming there is a domain involved. This is also
assuming that your first login attempt was with the admin account.

Subject: [Dshield] Windows update

We are experiencing issues when updating windows 2000 to service pack 4 via
using windows updates.  After upgrading we get a successful message then
reboot.  Log into system and after the next re boot, when trying to log in
it will do the log in process and the icons will appear for a second then
disappear, the windows main screen is just blank.  Even does this in safe
mode.  Seems like explorer.exe keeps crashing, not in list of processes when
doing CTRL ATL DEL.   First we did a repair install of windows, then did
restore of the system state, everything works fine except IE.  IE works fine
under admin but not under a normal user, it won't display html properly.

There are many ways to measure success; not the least of which is the way
your child describes you when talking to a friend.
