Hi,
I have been having a problem where when I log in locally or Remote Desktop I will get a black screen and a mouse pointer. The GUI is installed, I have tried opening explorer.exe via Task manager. I have done some googling and have found NOTHING that works.

The server is a DC so i'm sure if that is the issue here. The DC has been installed for about 5 months with no problems until just recently. It is also a DNS and File server which work fine. I can access the file server from my PCs fine and the domain seems to be working fine.


I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out here.

Thanks

Yes, I had a GUI at one point. It is the full install of it and not core.

Not sure about local but I have this problem fairly often over Remote Desktop. Finally found a suggestion to do CTRL-ALT-END. That usually fixes things for me in RDP. Maybe try CTRL-ALT-Delete locally.

I have tried everything. When I do that then open task manager, and start a new explorer.exe task. It shows it opens that closes again
