I have a Windows 2003 R2 Enterprise Server that is being used with Terminal Services. As of last Friday, Internet Explorer 7 will not launch or launch's briefly and then close on its own. The event log reports a application error in explorer faulting module unknown. I have tried the following to no avail.

- Scan for spyware using Spybot, Malwarebytes, SuperAntispyware, Norton Endpoint Security 12. Ran Rkill before running the scans. Anything that was found has been removed.
- Restarted the server.
- Upgraded to Internet Explorer 8 and downgraded to Internet Explorer 6.
- Installed Firefox.
- Ran SFC /scannow.

If you launch Internet Explorer from the regular icon, it will not usually start. If you right click and select no addons then it will start and work for about a minute and close. If you doubleclick on a website shortcut icon it will start and work for about a minute and then close. All other applications including appear to work OK. Email clients work OK. Other applications using the internet work OK.

Any help would be much appreciated.
