I have a server running Win Server 2003 Standard that has been acting a bit weird for the last couple of months, but has finally taken a turn towards troubled.

Initial symptoms are applications not launching when directed to (IE8 and others). I have been launching programs from the task manager when needed, but this procedure is getting old fast.

So far scans by MB and an older Symantic program have turned up nothing. I have new Symantinc software to install but want to clean it out first.

Where do I start?

Please help :)

Thanks,
Chris

The only update I haven't been able to successfully apply is the SQL Server Express 2005 with Advanced Services SP4 (KB2463332)

I would try temporarily removing Norton and see if the issues go away.

I will try this at some point in the future. I can't really be rebooting it too much...

Is there anything else I can try before doing this?

No there isn't. I have seen Norton do some pretty weird things.
