NT4 servr explorer doesn't display files

By ltheodoru ·
Had to to an NT repair on a client's server last night after the IT manager decided to install Timbuktu. I repaired only the system files, and reapplied SP6a. I have found that explorer does not display files, only directories. Find and brows in Run do display files. I also cannot install IE5 without Dr. Watson errors. Had to downgrade to IE4. Any ideas?

I applied SP6 before IE5. I have not run diags. It is a Compaq Proliant 2500.

IE5 can be installed after SP6, but then SP6 should be reapplied.

I'm not familiar with Timbuktu but I would definitely use the uninstall to get rid of it. Also restore your registry backup to get rid of any problem entries. Reapplying SP6 should be the last thing you do before rebooting. Yes, you will have to reboot unfortunately else the changes won't take effect.

If you stick with IE4 it shouldn't give you any problems on a server that I can think of. Unless you are web browsing (a no-no from a server). Basic functionality remains the same. Still reapply SP6 and reboot.

Good luck!
