    [SBS2011] Won't load services or explorer.exe

    Hey guys, This doesn't fit in with any other server sub-forums. Sooooo,

    I recently got a HP ProLiant N36L Microserver and installed Windows SBS 2011 Standard 180-day trial.

    Everything was 'okay' but it was randomly freezing and crashing, so I decided to do a clean install since I hadn't really done anything major on the server.

    So it installed fine and then I restarted after the initial set up and when it loaded, I logged in and all that loaded was the "Start using your server" welcome page/check list. No taskbar, no desktop, no nothing.

    I tried to go Windows key+R to start explorer.exe but no commands like that would work, but it would boot up fine in safe mode. So I thought stuff it! Reinstalled SBS AGAIN(!) and had the same issue.

    I have now booted into safe mode, checked the registry for an issue, no issue. Checked msconfig, no issue. Ran sfc /scannow, nothing found and I'm currently running a chkdsk /r.

    Please, does anyone have a solution?


    EDIT: Good news everyone! In normal mode I can get into task manager and therefor gain access to Run and I can see that explorer.exe is in fact running... Just not... working...

    Nevermind, I enabled the Administrator account in safe mode using the "net user Administrator /active:yes" command, logged in, deleted my admin account and everything seems fine, thanks.
