    Apps not running whilst not attached to domain

    Hi

    I have my work laptop at home so clearly not attached to the doman. Some apps just won't run in this condition. Namley Firefox and Virtual PC 2007. Firefox just doesn't start - no reaction at all. Virtual PC reports and error has occured and closes.

    I've also noticed that I cannot logon locally with any local accounts like Administrator etc - not sure if this is related.

    Thing is I realy need to use VPC this weekend so any help much appreciated

    Thnaks

    I guess they are looking for something not present whilst you're at home, maybe a home drive with preferences or something?

    Group Policies?

    Redirected Appdata dir? also anything set in GP to disallow local logon?

    Have you had a look in the Event Viewer?

    It might give you a steer on what is going on [or a clue as to what might be causing it]

    With regard to Firefox - I guess you've looked in the connections settings? Not looking at your works connection is it?
